James Piecowye thinking out loud

Ideas, inspiration and a bit of random.

On Creativity

Creativity is an odd thing. I seem to have been on this odd quest of a sort since 2009 running into bits and pieces of how people manage, wrestle and tame their own creative energy long enough to grab the idea and put it into a form that others can understand. It is absolutely interesting […]

My Canada

I can’t tell you how many times I get asked what is it that set Canada as a country apart from others. To me, this video says it all.

Alan Alda talks public speaking

There are endless hours of great content on CBC, the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, Radio. And I have to say q is better than ever. Well, I happened on this absolutely fantastic interview with Alan Alda about public speaking. And Tom Power really has a knack for the interview. I love the part where Tom Power […]

2 Guys I have all the time for.

Take a Different Route.

OK, we do a lot of music on Nightline with the help of Paul Kelly over there at www.triplew.me¬†but we have not had a band like these guys. If you are not listening and watching Q you are missing something big. This band, Royal Canoe caught my attention because they are indeed taking the other […]

William H Macy

This is simply a great interview! I love the conversation about his wife!

Great Life Lessons!

There is a lot to learn from Kermit the Frog.  

What inspires you?

Tony Bennett may not be the youngest guy on the block but it really is something else to listen to him talk about what inspired him and inspires him to sing. The simple things, the story, the ability to engage it is in the confluence of these that we all have our inspiration.
