pay attention

some gems here like this one about being an artist and paying attention:

"i think often you're so limited...first, you can't have your own way, often things fall down.  but second, we're so limited by our cultural beliefs that are so boring, like how we aestheticize things..what you think is a good song or what art should look like...that's always getting in our way of being really present to the possibilities of a situation...random chance or random circumstances give you things that you are not capable of getting to with your own limitations but you can be capable of recognizing that you're being given something and take advantage of and incorporate that into yourself.""
