Aprille Janes and I are excited to launch our new podcast featuring conversations about creativity: Hummingbird.
We celebrate the joy (and sometimes messiness) of living with creative abundance. We share practical strategies and reflections on expanding creativity. Aprille is an artist and Jessica is a writer. Like the hummingbird, we fly from ideas to projects to people to find ways to better understand how to engage in our arts with more passion, skill, and fun.
We explore big questions about integrating creativity into our lives. Sometimes the question is about something that holds us back or what creativity really is all about or sometimes we examine a life lived. How do you nurture a life of creativity?
We invite you to not only ‘eavesdrop’ on our conversations but to share your questions and comments with us on our website and social media.
For those that have followed Sunshine in a Jar over the years, you know creativity is my favourite thing to write about. Now I’m thrilled to be able to talk about it!
Conversations About Creativity
Each episode is framed around a question we have about creativity.
“Do not now seek the answers, which cannot be given you because you would not be able to live them. And the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps you will then gradually, without noticing it, live along some distant day into the answer.”Rainer Marie Rilke
Each episode ends with a Play List, an invitation to play with the ideas further and engage in a creative call to action.
Aprille and I have spent many years exploring the abundance of creativity. We are looking forward to deepening that relationship through these ongoing conversations together.
We also hope that you will send in your questions too!
