Everyone has a day when they are like, “why bother?” Any negative feedback bounces around in our brains millions of times longer than a supportive comment. This great site “Days of Yore” is an interview style website that talks to artists across many disciplines and nationalities to find out what they thought about growing up and being an artist, before anyone noticed. Names you will notice–Pulitzer Prize Winner Jane Smiley, bon vivant and Barney’s Artistic Director Simon Doonan, New Yorker writer Susan Orlean, Cheryl Strayed who wrote WILD (now a film with Reese Witherspoon), and a great many others. Drink it up!
