“You have to feel the car,” said my driving teacher.
“You have to feel the scene and follow what you imagined,” said my drawing teacher.
I was a few days/weeks into doing something new, learning, so everything was fresh to my mind and muscles. I still take the time to think of each move, and before I can feel anything, I have to know how to do it first.
When my teachers told me to feel it, I took that notion in, yet I told myself to not be frustrated if I couldn’t follow their advice, yet. Do I even need to go to class if I could do the most important thing a few lessons in?
So dear my teachers, I don’t know how many talents you have made, but I’m not yet and probably won’t be one of them. I’m just a normal person trying to gain more skills and diverse my knowledge, and there are many things I have to unlearn and relearn.
I would love to learn the foundations, first. Because as long as I get to understand the fundamentals, I can feel when I’m on my train of thoughts. I can feel independently of yours.
