Our own Barb Johnson did a stellar interview with PopMatters.com and we wanted to share an excerpt of it here and then link to the full interview.
Barb is also on tour now with her book, “More of this World or Maybe Another” and you can find her on Facebook to see the tour cities.
Excerpt from Popmatters.com interview below:
11. The best piece of advice you actually followed?
The best advice I’ve ever been given was also the most oblique, thus it is broadly applicable. When I was learning to canoe a number of years ago, by way of instruction a friend said: “You can’t fight the river. The river is boss. It gives you the ride. You’ve got an oar if you need to change the direction. But don’t fight the river. Work with it.”
