I love to hear what people like to read and watch, I am always on the look out to satisfy my voracious appetite for books & movies that inspire! Here is a sample of what I’ve been reading & watching lately, all highly recommended! I’ve written a sentence or two below on my thoughts, I hope you find some inspiration as well!
1. How to Catch a Frog by Heather Ross – I picked this up from her book signing at Powells in Portland, it’s a great summer read! She was a child of the 1970’s to eccentric parents (as am I) as well as a creative entrepreneaur, and great storyteller!
2. Finding Vivian Maier directed by Charles Siskel, John Maloof– I watched this amazing documentary here in Portland, and have thought about it a lot since then. It is well done, thought-provoking, and a really amazing testament about being prolific, making work everyday, regardless of anyone knowing about it.
3. I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings by Maya Angelou – I had to reread this again following her passing. She was a great woman, a phenomenal storyteller, an inspiration. I listened to this as an audiobook on my daily commute and found myself laughing and crying on any given day. Powerful!
5. A La Mere De Famille by
6. The Wisdom of Psychopaths by Kevin Dutton – I am fascinated by psychology. I practically double-majored in it in college, and had two paths to potentially follow: art or psychology. Art won! But I still enjoy learning about this field. This book was pretty amazing, delving into the scale of madness we all sit on. I learned a lot!
