“I would just like to be a creative person and express what I can express in whatever field is appropriate at that time.”  Barbara Hannigan – renowned Canadian opera singer and conductor. (Interview here)

I love this quote – it’s so freeing.  As a creative person, one of the benefits of those 10 000+ hours of extensive practicing and perfecting is the opportunity for expansion beyond our imaginings – being led by your craft to unexpected places where you discover new talent, interest, skills, and ideas.  It is wonderful to hear about artists breaking boundaries and doing things in a new way.  This interview with Barbara Hannigan is such an inspiration as an example of the unlimited possibilities within each of us.
