August 2006 Journal
Interviewed by 52 Projects Author Jeffrey Yamaguchi
By Chris Dunmire, Publisher
If you're interested in reading about what prompted me to start the Creativity Portal Web site, how I balance my work with my creative projects, and how my personal view of creativity has evolved over the years, you'll enjoy the interview I recently had with Jeffrey Yamaguchi, author of the book 52 Projects: Random Acts of Everyday Creativity.

I want to thank Jeffrey for the opportunity to answer his many thought-provoking questions about my work with the Creativity Portal Web site. It's my desire that the site continues to inspire others to courageously explore, express, and enjoy their own creativity.
