Turn on your iTunes or iPod (or whatever is the closest thing for you). Now, hit SHUFFLE, and tell me what 7 songs come up first.
No cheating! This is not about sharing your favorite, brag-worthy taste, it’s about catching you off guard and seeing a hidden side to your personality.
Wednesday, you may just be transformed by my guest, Danny Gregory, who will tell his story of realizing he is an artist and letting that part of him step forward.
This is from the back cover of my very dog-earred copy of THE CREATIVE LICENSE:
For years, author Danny Gregory told himself he wasn’t, couldn’t be an artist. But when a crisis made him reexamine his priorities, he saw he’d been speeding through life and missing the view. So, in his late thirties, he picked up a ballpoint and taught himself to draw. The result was a whole new perspective on life – which he now shares in this beautifully illustrated program for reconnecting to our own creative energies.
He gently instructs us in the art of allowing ourselves to fail, giving up the expectation of perfection and opening our eyes to the beauty around us. The result is THE CREATIVE LICENSE, a wild celebration of amateurism, full of humor, passion, and encouragement, sure to inspire every doodler, frustrated writer, wannabe musician, and midlife-crisising executive – in other words, the artist inside every one of us.
Looking forward to sharing Danny and his story with you. See you Wednesday!
