Swing

Sometimes you think there are no good ideas left in a particular sphere, but that’s time-based. It’s a pendulum. When people push too far into “originality for originality’s sake,” then people want “classic” stuff. They yearn for nostalgia. And then when the homages get too tired, people want something fresh. This is all okay – tastes are meant to be mercurial. They’re a way to use emotion to mark time, a way to season your seasons uniquely.

You don’t have to be an immovable pillar in what you enjoy. You’re allowed to like things you didn’t before and to abandon things that no longer suit your palate. Swing along with the pendulum, enjoy the ride.
