Eno on unadventure:
“In my normal life I’m a very unadventurous person,” Mr. Eno said. “I take the same walk every day and I eat in the same restaurants, and often eat exactly the same things in the same restaurants. I don’t adventure much except when I’m in the studio, and then I only want to adventure. I cannot bear doing something again, or thinking that I’m doing something again.”
As Jacobs once said, “Differentiation emerg[es] from generality. Differentiations become generalities from which further differentiations occur.” My summer has been only about variation — in location, in people, in process — but slowed down creation here. It’s good to be home.
