Among the four or five books I am currently reading is “Ogilvy On Advertising”, in which Our Hero rants about what sells and what doesn’t. I came across this startling quote:
“Mozart said, ‘I have never made the slightest effort to compose anything original.'”
I find that somehow comforting. I awoke this morning knowing I probably would not have time to write any music today, and I felt discouraged by the prospect. Having Mozart in my ear as I struggle to be “original” sorta cheered me up.
Meanwhile, during my morning surf I came across an online mag I’d like to explore further, given some time.
