Live TV Interview with Jeanmarie Bassior on L.A. Talk Live, 2013
(My book was not yet published so I had to use a mock up I created)
The internal graph in my brain looks erratic… scared, excited, scared, nervous, delighted, scared… and then I remember to stop… and heed to my own advice to others when speaking publically… speak from the heart.
In 2009 I had my first interview for Beauty and Wisdom… it was a live video WebChat and it was for Growing Bolder, and if I had a dime for every “you know” and ‘um” I said, I would be closer to that second home on the beach right about now.
As my promise to myself to be more vulnerable and never to regret, HERE is the link for you to check out that video from 2009.
Wow, when I look back and think about that very first interview I still cringe, but I also smile about it and know that I did the best I could with where I was then… which is extremely inexperienced.
I don’t consider myself an expert in anything, but I believe that as long as I speak from my heart and not so much my head, I can hone my skills at becoming a person who shares honestly and openly… and that… is the best I can do.I believe the work I do is important… communication through art, so it is a natural step at this time for me to start speaking more about it…the psychology of it all and the meaning it plays in my life… art, that is…and no doubt, life, plays a part in my work in art and music.My fellow Cabal sister, Katrina Gorman, recently posted in our group a request for the rest of us to throw out suggestions for her to do what would completely throw her out of her comfort zone. It took a couple of suggestions to finally make her feel …. challenged.
