The Errors of Inspiration
The big mistake is to wait for inspiration. It won't come looking for you. - Brian Eno
They have me thinking, though not necessarily coherently. Besides, coherence is not the point when I'm looking for a creative spark. The act of stringing a few notes together and seeing If and where they take me is what matters. I always learn something. Sometimes the lesson(s) take years to come to fruition, sometimes not. I suspect much is missed. But by serving the aphorism - We begin again constantly, the process moves forward. Or backwards. Maybe inwards or obliquely. Always somewhere.
