Welcome to hello human by me, tokyoterri.
I grew up in New York City, and I’ve been expat in Tokyo for decades.
Being Black American, a woman, a tool-loving techie, a life long learner, aa singer-songwriter, and a bunch of other things, I’m building a creative practice in the midst of working full time and living single.
I want to share my experience as an artist with you so that you can do, or not do, what I did, or didn’t.
So this weekly show (publishing on Tokyo Mondays), will have the books, essays, podcasts, courses, movies, people, places and things that help me to learn, to create and to publish.
If I did it wrong, I’ll tell you so you can avoid my mistakes.
If my action works, I’ll share that, too.
I hope I inspire you to move on up a little bit higher.

Lauren: "...somewhere along the line, I decided that my, I couldn't stop making lists, cause it's something I, when I get a new idea, I want to write it down.
I want to do it. I'm excited about it. But I decided that the to-do list is aspirational. So it's not a required list of things that I have to do in this world, because at the end of the day, you do what you can do, right? So I've got this great list. I can dump everything on it. I can pull from it. I can cross things off.
...And when I write them down, I think they're all possible. I overestimate what I can get done every single day when I wake up.
But the difference is when I get to the end of the day, I concentrate on the thing that I did get done, not on the things that I didn't get done..."

I'm going to explore 3 questions about creativity:
how does creativity fit into everyday life?
how to maintain creative consistency?
and who and are great creative inspirations?
