Brian Eno, via Geeta Dayal, via Jones:

If you walk around with the idea that there are some people who are so gifted – they have these wonderful things in their head but you’re not one of them, you’re just a normal sort of person, you could never do anything like that – then you live a different kind of life. You could have another kind of like, where you say, well, I know that things come from nothing very much and start from unpromising beginnings. And I’m an unpromising beginning, and I could start something.

  1. u post the most interesting bits at the best times for me to ponder. i think that’s why i haven’t gone stark raving mad at being nobody. i have been pondering the reinvention of myself lately; being true to the pieces i tend to hold tight to, reign in.

    Because i do think, i do believe, that i am an unpromising beginning.

  2. Eno once again being insightful. Bastard.
