I love this word byte from Thom Yorke: “Just being looser in your thinking allows you to avoid fixed ideas.” … Yorke has come to discover that the best things that happen musically “are often when you’re super-unsure and kind of flailing around. You just work at it and wait.”

He may brood in the spotlight, but Yorke is an unpretentious and honest artist. And doesn’t his observation apply to all creative work? Aren’t we all super-unsure (to say the least!)? Nice to be reminded that all of us, even those who are considered super creative powers-of-the-universe, start from basically the same mind space as we approach new work.
