Voodoo math

I posted on Facebook a conversation The Boy and I had, and two friends suggested I doodle a comic out of it. They didn’t say, in so many words, that I should post it on the internet for the world to see, but I knew that’s what they meant. Secretly. In their heart of hearts. So here it is! (If you’re feeling brave, you can friend me on Facebook to read my silliness as it happens.)… Read more

The Creativity Interviews: Filmmaker, Michael Maren

Manifesto love: three manifestos for creatives

I love manifestos. I love the certainty of them, the optimism of writing out your aspirations as faits accomplis, the boldness of life plans deeply rooted in personal values. I’ve been collecting them for a while in a file called Badass Manifestos, and I’ve decided to start sharing them periodically as inspiration, reminders of what we can do when we simply decide to.… Read more

The people I’m imagining

  1. I’ve been undone by the story of writer Patti Digh and her husband, John, recently diagnosed with kidney cancer.

And by weird I mean… yeah, weird

One of the questions I ask all my beautiful, intrepid creatives when I invite them over to Zebra Sounds to play with us as part of the Creativity Interview Series, is “What’s the weirdest thing that inspires you?” Their answers to that question are often my favorite parts of the interviews, not just because I love hearing about offbeat catalysts for genius, but also because the answers are so unique, so personal.… Read more

Piecing together Connie’s sky

Last Thursday, my friend Jill Salahub wrote a post that stopped me in my tracks. It was about love and grief and fear, the pain and healing of forward motion. It was about being human and as I read it, I felt absolutely connected to her, as if her post were a sort of Kirtan chant and all that was needed now was my response.… Read more
