A Peek Inside…Diamond Hard

A Peek InsideWant a peek inside what the video of Diamond Hard means? Want another step into the magical world that Kerli creates?

I am obsessed with Diamond Hard by Kerli.  I love the beats, the rhythm, and the video.  I love this article where she talks about the symbolism of each thing in Diamond Hard.

“I am caught between the light and dark. I don’t even know which side wins – which wins is the instinct” Kerli

I live for this quote of hers.  Learn more about Diamond Hard here

A Peek Inside…The Crescent Manor

BEWARE immense inspiration for the creative inside all of us.

I watched this video in awe and inspired by Kerli and her friend Roniit have created an amazing home by using things from trash and making DIY things to make a house of fantasy dreams.

As a creative this breathes life into me.  I would love to build a creative place of my own where I could either live in or just go to.  My dream wheels are turning.

A Peek Inside…Life & Art

A Peek Inside

Want another walk through the way my mind works?  Want another peek into Kerli’s?

I think life is art in general… not just what you make but how you dress, what your space looks like, how you cook food, how you treat people, etc. It’s nice to do great art, but the ultimate goal is to be great art.

I genuinely love the way she doesn’t separate from the spirit from Art.  Mind. Body.  Heart.  Soul. You need all four and they all interconnect with everything in your life.

I also love the part in the interview where she talks about her move to the woods and rebirth because I’ve been having the word TRANSFORM grace my life lately.  I see similarities between those two words.    You grow and you also leave behind/shed layers every single day.

I never tire of taking a peek into Kerli’s mind, it opens my own.  I continue to believe in the magic of this world and she continues to prove it’s existence.

Want to a peek into a spiritual creative process? Danielle has been working hard on her new book, A Manifesto of Encouragement and decided to video her progress. I love reading her Facebook post and how she weaves her stories in for a big life lesson.

These videos are inspiring; I love watching them and being along on the journey.

You’re writing the book, not to hear yourself speak…you are here to serve and you need encouragement along the way, and encouragement comes from telling people what you’re up to and making announcements as to when things are going to real, then you just watch what happens, sh**s gonna to get real.

A Peek Inside

Want a peek into magic? One of my muses posted an interview with V Magazine talking about her process in creating musical art and I absolutely love this.

I really like her response on how taking a retreat into the woods inspired this album:

Musically, I think this is by far the most meaningful work I have ever done. I just feel so connected to it. I have always written and vocal-produced but now I’m also producing a lot of [the music] by myself, so that feels really good. At times I feel like a slave to this work, completely tortured, like giving birth to giants, toe by toe.
Sound-wise, I’ve been trying to channel everything that I see and hear in the woods, all the magical creatures and simmer it in a sauce made of my favorite ingredients like electronic, ambient and industrial music. I feel completely fearless and unapologetic as a human being right now when it comes to living exactly how I want and I think it will really show in the art I’m working on as well, lyrically, musically, and visually.

But what’s equally amazing is the pictures and the video that came with it.

Get ready to be entranced…

A peek inside is a new posting I’m starting to spread a little love and light and inspiration whenever I run across an inspiring interview.
