Jayne Nakata lives in Iwaki, Fukushima and I had a chance to meet her in person a couple years ago at a retreat a mutual friend hosted. I was delighted to have a conversation with her for her podcast, Transformations with Jayne. It was a delight to be a disembodied voice without a camera turned on. We talked about rural Japan life, my old podcast project, yoga classes, and how to trick yourself into making art when you feel you aren’t an Artist.
