Thandie Newton on asking permission and skin sacks

Krista GanoComment

What do you do when the stomach flu hits your house?  You start to watch and save videos on FB.  Well, I found one that I love.  It's definitely worth a watch.  It's from with Sam Jones and it's a great website/blog to explore.  He is passionate about long form conversation with artists and I'm crushing on his site, his photos and the awesome interviews.  I love this conversation with Thandie Newton, where she talks about the problem with waiting for permission, the freedom of creating something beautiful from our frustration...and what it is to "plant trees under which I will never sit".

I will be back next week with a new guest blog fresh from Sundance!  

P.S. - How's Monday's challenge coming?  I'd love to hear about it!  Don't forget to subscribe, share and comment.
