i am a big fan of keri smith- how she approaches challenge, creativity, and life in general. i think i probably seem like some kind of crazy stalker as much of my reading list gets pulled from her wonderful site, wish jar.
i couldn't resist sharing some additional great reading: an interview she recently did on the creative process with cecil vortex, and one that i think will fuel a lot of artists or anyone seeking to live a mindful life, should they take the time to read it.
while you're there- note that there are a lot of other great interviews on the site in the sidebar, with many other artists in conversation. not a bad place to hang out for a while.
