“Lonnie Holley on the possibility in a zillion grains of sand”

As the New Year begins, we recommend giving this interview with Lonnie Holley by The Creative Independent a listen or read. Lonnie talks about the need for perseverance, both historically and personally, and how creativity is a life force for withstanding and confronting hard times. “Hope needs to be work. You just can’t say hope. Hope don’t go nowhere,” he says. “The whole thing that I’m trying to show is no matter what you do in life, you got to do the whole thing.” Thanks, Lonnie.
