I used to think I had the patience of a saint but it turns out I am in a (never ending) race to the finish line - that is, with myself. But someone once reminded me that the finishing line of life is my own impending mortality. Which is a bit depressing - so I’ve pulled it back to wiggling-anticipation. I’m on the edge of highly impatient; but (hopefully) in the right way. For years I agonised over perfection, obsessed over it and I eventually discovered, while an advantageous characteristic in a plastic surgeon or a professional knife thrower, it's actually a major hinderance as a creative.
On a fresh, strangely Fall-like Wednesday in January (I can say fall as I have now lived in New York for 6 months) a group of very excited, art-obsessed, coffee-seeking souls gathered on the 8th floor of The Whitney Museum of American Art.
We are the ambassadors for The Whitney. Only two days after my interview (and the newest art groupie) I was about to sit down to breakfast with Adam Weinberg. The Whitney’s Director, the Godfather himself.
The new year is upon us and with that a flurry of events to inspire your tickers, noggins, brains or whatever you choose to call that thing at the top of your body are here.
Creative Social as always have got a bunch of jolly neat stuff lined up for the year, the first being Creative Super Powers. A session to help you reconnect with your inner free creative spirit, getting you ready to be fucking shit hot this year.
Throw on some headphones, or sync up to the office speaker system and treat your colleagues to some sounds for January.This playlist evolves and grows during the course of the month and is created and curated by Ben Yabsley in NYC.
