What we can learn from dead musicians about reflection

“Before you play two notes,” he once said, “learn how to play one note, and don’t play one note unless you’ve got a reason to play it.”

This quote from Talk Talk’s Mark Hollis, who died in February 2019, is taken from John Harris’s excellent Guardian article about slowing down and reflecting. There is much there that chimes with me, particularly the need to pause the social media onslaught.
