Inspiration comes in many forms, many a time from other fellow artists of the same craft, but sometimes of an entirely different one. Henry James loved paintings, Yukio Mishima admired the bushido and Vladimir Nakobov had a soft spot for butterflies. In our appreciation and study of different forms of art, we allow ourselves to view approaches and techniques that, although seemingly unrelated to our craft, can actually benefit our creative process.
This is why I have decided to run the Dreamers Interview Series parallel to the Author Interview Series. In this series, I will interview people who have decided to follow their dreams and have created (or are still in the process of creating) a life out of their passion. I believe we can learn much from them, regardless of our craft.
Next week, I will interview Christine Guenette, a massotherapist and yoga instructor who quit her day job to become who she really was. Christine is now the owner at The Nest: Therapeutic Massage & Yoga and she hosts weekly Grassy Yoga sessions in the summer. Tune in next week to learn more about her and enter the giveaway.
