My two most recent rants about how Norway is better at certain things than Australia were meant as an writing exercise. You see, when I went on holiday I decided to just put down the pen for a bit. Give writing a bit of a rest and actually enjoy my holiday.
It’s not like I don’t enjoy writing, on the contrary, I love it! So much I often keep my journalist-hat on all the time, wondering if what I might stumble upon when out for a stroll might be worth writing a column about.
As the old saying goes, you never forget how to ride a bike. Which is true, but if you’ve been off the bike for a while, you will wobble a bit for a few meters till you’re used to balancing on two wheels again.
That is something that can be applied to anything. You rarely forget how to do something, but it might take you a while to get into the habit again.
Something I experienced after going shopping during Korg’s Xmas sale, buying their iMS-20 and iPolysix soft-synths for the iPad. I’m very familiar with programming soft-synths, but I’m still remembering how to make it sound good again.
Practice makes perfect…
