A Creative Heart-to-Heart
with my better half Jon Batiste
I’m here today with something we’ve never really done before.
Last week I sat down with Jon Batiste, my beloved husband—and the Oscar- and Grammy-winning artist—to make something very special for you. Crosslegged on the floor of his studio, equipped with a couple of microphones and some powerful questions from this community, we dove in. As we talked, we did what we aspire to do when journaling—we showed up as our most unedited, unvarnished selves.
So here it is: a raw, unfiltered conversation about life and the creative process. You can also expect a lot of laughter, and for it to go a little off the rails at least once, as any conversation between Jon and me usually does. We hope it inspires you to keep transforming life’s interruptions into creative grist—or at least to get creative with your grits. (You’ll see.)
Excited and a little nervous to hear what you think. Let us know in the comments!
