I have some very creative friends. Artists, musicians, the sort of people that can turn their hand to almost anything artistic (despite being told repeatedly by me that no-one likes a show off).
Well OK, that comment is the green-eyed monster talking, I can’t even master the art of the most basic of drawing skills, and here is an example. I have labelled it so that you are not confused as to which is the photo of my dog Jake, and which is my attempt at drawing him.
I know what you’re thinking. Did a 47 year old woman really turn out something so tragically bad? Well no! The joke’s on you because I actually drew that when I was about 33. Yes years. And yes I realise that still makes it a pretty poor effort.
But do you know what I am good at and what I really enjoy? PowerPoint! Because it lets me be creative without having to worry about having the artistic ability of a partially sighted, elderly squirrel. I can visualise what I want to see on the slide and PowerPoint gives me the ability to create it. And for just a little while I can pretend to be an artist too…
So if you ask me to create a PowerPoint presentation you are actually giving my inner artist a way to channel herself without the humiliation of presenting something a bit like you see above (although I did have that drawing made into fridge magnets and sent them to a couple of friends – they were thrilled).
