Simone de Beauvoir once said that in old age we need “passions strong enough to prevent us turning in on ourselves.” What does it mean exactly, to turn in on ourselves? Does creativity have an expiry date? How does an artist keep her engine running while waiting out a pandemic?
Please join me as I explore questions I didn’t know needed answering. Travel with me along my meandering creative footpath as I struggle to distinguish true callings from those powered by buried, unresolved emotion. Find out if age has anything to do with it. Find out what is possible if we resist the urge to turn in on ourselves and instead, show up over and over again in front of that difficult mirror, to ask what our muses – not our retirement fund – want from us.
Be a fly on the wall without all the paint, sweat, and tears.
