Hi everyone, Kohaku here, I hope you all had a good week. How’s December turning out for you?
It’s been ten weeks, and ten journal entries, since I first talked about my Dinner Party project. If you weren’t here then or don’t remember, you can read details about the background of the project and my first list here: Entry #10 – Dinner Party. But for those who don’t want to, I’ll just quickly summarize what the project actually is. The basic premise is to keep a list of 10 famous people whom you admire or respect, people who inspire you in your daily life and work. Then, track how this list changes over time.
Anyhow, I thought ten weeks later is a pretty good time to publish a new list. There are some new people on it, because, as always, I’ve been actively seeking out new inspirations and learning about new things. These new inspirations replaced some of the old ones, to keep the list at 10, but that doesn’t mean that I don’t like or draw inspiration from those old people anymore. The Dinner Party project is just a snapshot of the 10 people who are most inspiring to you at this particular moment.
So, here we go with my second list. New entries are bolded, and like before, I’ve linked their Wiki pages or websites so you can read a quick basic bio on them if you’re interested.
In no particular order:
- Yuzuru HANYU (羽生結弦)
- Yoshiki (林佳樹)
- Hans LINDAHL
- GACKT (大城 ガクト)
- YOHIO (Kevin Johio Lucas Rehn EIRES)
- Hayao MIYAZAKI (宮崎駿)
- Yojiro NODA (野田洋次郎)
- Haruki MURAKAMI (村上春樹 )
- HYDE (寶井秀人)
- Chachamaru (藤村幸宏)
How is it? Have you heard about them before – the new entries, or the older ones too if this is your first time?
You can learn a lot about a person by studying the people they admire. That’s one reason I decided to start publishing this project on my blog. If you want to know the values that I care about, the people who inspire me and my work, this is a big part of it.
And now, again, what about you? What does your list look like, right now? If you made a list last time, has it changed since then? Who is inspiring you and your work right this moment? This week, think about that again. It’s important to reflect on these things.
I’ve got three compilations and another project that’ll be released in the last three weeks of December, so stay tuned. Take care of yourselves!
