things YOU LOVE

- shared inspirations and resources


Although ultimately we all have to work out what works the best for us, you might wish to know what others have found inspiring or helpful.

As a part of the People Like You and Me Project, this section is created by gathering all the books, writers, role-models, artists and other supportive resources you have shared with me.

It is a wonderful feeling when we connect via a shared love for the arts.

Where an item appears more than once, their subsequent mentions are indicated with asterisks (** = appears twice; *** = appears three times).

As an entirely un-scientific process, my work is prone to human error. I apologise in advance for any missing items, miscalculations and broken links. Please feel free to let me know if you notice anything odd!

Love,

Imi
