Singing About Writer’s Block

No, not me (the thought!) but the ever-talented Jesca Hoop:

Once you manage to decipher the lyrics, it’s a very nice description of the creative process. And if (like me the first few times I heard it) you can’t figure out what she’s singing, it’s still a very pretty song! 🙂

Why is it, do you suppose, that inspiration and flowing water so often are linked? We talk about fountains of ideas, inspiration “like a bursting dam”. The comparisons seem apt, but it’s such a hard thing to talk about. I’m an engineer, I get uncomfortable trying to describe things that intangible — I wind up waving my hands a lot and saying, “You see what I mean, right?”
