Diligent yet indolent

I feel that this is rather like what I called the Art of Doing Nothing
Because it involves no will power;because while it may lead to
productive work in writing or the arts yet cannot be effortful [ that’s how our Imagination works]
We are communicating with the depths of our soul & also of Nature
Even in the Sciences I feel it plays a part.Andrew Wiles found t the solutionto a very hard maths problem when he left his desk and went down a country lane
Of course Wiles needed to spend years learning mathematics before this otherwisehe could not had the tools to use to take advantage of his inspiration
We spent much time at school learning maths>Unfortunately few of us reach the creative level
We are learning “things that come in useful later on”
Alas for most, “later on” is still in the far distance.
Might it be better to fill children’s minds with common sense
curiousity,joy in Nature and in company?
As long as one has the basic skills, the rest should be an awakening of the mind and heart
In present day culture this sounds outlandish.
But what is life without it?
