Yo-Yo Ma’s first instrument wasn’t cello. He actually started with violin—and he wasn’t good at it. So he quit violin and picked up cello instead. Maybe you’re like Yo-Yo Ma, and you just haven’t found your cello yet.

It’s okay to quit.

"We have learned to see that food is not a ghetto, it is a door. You can use food to talk about the environment. You can use food to talk about culture. You can use food to talk about politics."

— A fantastic conversation with Michael Pollan, author of the most important food politics book of the past half-century, whose most recent tome, Cooked: A Natural History of Transformation, is an absolute must-read. (via explore-blog)

Where do you work?

Do you work ‘inside’ or ‘outside’?

To work inside is to deal with the internal conditions of the work — the melodies, the rhythms, the textures, the lyrics, the images: all the normal day-to-day things one imagines an artist does.

To work outside is to deal with the world surrounding the work — the thoughts, assumptions, expectations, legends, histories, economic structures, critical responses, legal issues and so on and on. You might think of these things as the frame of the work.

A frame is a way of creating a little world round something.

[…]

Is there anything in a work that is not frame, actually?

Brian Eno, born on May 15, 1948, on art and culture. (via explore-blog)
