"Genius is in-born, may it never be still-born."

"Oysters, irritated by grains of sand, give birth to pearls. Brains, irritated by curiosity, give birth to ideas."

"Brainpower is the bridge to the future; it is what transports you from wishful thinking to willful doing."

"Unless you keep learning & growing, the status quo has no status."

Last night, in the flash of a fancy thought, I asked - via email - Dilip Mukerjea to draw me a cartoon sketch about a beaver & a mousedeer talking to each other.

I justed wanted it to illustrate the essence of 'Ideas Build on Ideas'.

After a short while, back came a quick choice - via email - of two renditions based on what I had requested:

one in pencil, as illustrated in the first one; the other in pen & ink, as illustrated in the second one.

The cartoon sketches, done almost "on-the-fly", for this post of mine certainly demonstrated the spontaneity & versatility of a creative mind. Many thanks, Dilip!

Come to think of it, the dam building lesson as depicted in the cartoon sketches is in fact a fine example of biomimicry. Mother Nature is definitely a great teacher!
