Whim Finding with Lori-Ann Claerhout

Blog-Lori-ClaerhoutWith Lori Claerhout at www.loriclaerhout.com

You meet the most interesting people sometimes. Some of them are interesting partly because they’re so interested. Lori Claerhout is one of these.

Lori Claerhout is a writer, editor, planner and participator. We met in a group of like-minded creative types. Among other things, Lori is interested in whims. What does the word mean to others? Where do whims happen and how to we embrace—or battle—them? And being a curious, thoughtful and people-centred human she decided to ask other humans about them. In this video, she asks me.

Lori is interested in all sorts of things. She’s interested in Buddhism, love, not-dieting, curbing the shoulds, joy, and lots and lots of other stuff. If you’d like to meet her too, she’s at www.loriclaerhout.com. I recommend it.

    Lovely, Laureen! My ‘whim’ today was deciding to put a series of tucks in the upper sleeve of the bustle gown I’m learning to construct in the course. Additional work – but it will be all the more beautiful for following that whim!

      Daily whims! This one sounds beautiful. And I think the course you refer to is a course in costume making that you’re taking in York, England. Is that correct? A brilliant example of whim-following!
