Spektor lens

Striking beauty in this conversation with Regina Spektor ... just as one would expect! Massive kudos to the lovely interviewer... Taza!

On performing: "It’s really really really good. [laughs] I don’t know - it feels kind of like a shower or something. Cause it just kind of pours over you in this way, it feels so positive and just, really great. Shows feel like everybody’s going through something together. And then there is this atmosphere that happens or this world that happens and only the people that are there really understand it…"

On what she wants in life: "I guess just all the things that everybody wants: To feel like they’re actually doing something and not just reenacting the same thing over and over, and not getting stuck. Just opening your mind and seeing more of the world and trying to understand how people live and what they think. All that stuff that will sound really fluffy and disgusting if you write it down. Just be part of the world. Really really live. You know? One of my big goals is to just not do things out of fear but [to] be really open, which is hard I think. It’s a full time job for people to stay really open. It’s like a second job. But also - I don’t think it’s good to just do one thing. I don’t think if you’re a musician you should not just be immersed in music. I think it’s really important that if you’re a musician [to] try writing a play or something. Things need to complete other things."

And the best news of all, on the future: "I’ve been writing music for a Broadway show…"
Can't wait to see that.

Dive into the world you believe in. And as you carve the life you crave, here's few fun strategies to lighten your days:  Celebrate where you’re from, past and present. Your family and friends, your neighbourhood and neighbours, your school, your city and country, your job, your planet and your creator, have made today possible. Plan and support reunions, milestones and tributes.Seek out people who inspire you and welcome support from unexpected sources, strangers, books and lyrics. Allow chemistry to work its magic; welcome hints and change, no matter how seemingly strange.Live comfortably. Weed out what doesn't work, what doesn't make you thrive, in your closet, your kitchen, your garden, your inbox and your relationships. Make room to evolve at any time. Keep moving. Feel your heart pound. Sweat and laugh your stresses out every chance you get. Feed your spirit. Hear it whisper. Feel divinity in your own body. Don't …

Now or never

If someone's burden was lightened today because of you the day was well spent, eternally invested.
