On January 1st 2012  I made a very quiet resolution to interview inspirational people.
Slowly and very quietly I made lists, contacted people and sent out interview questions, only 4 questions, to people who  inspired me.
Most of these people I had never met but their stories, non the less, had impacted me. They had made me happy, sad, want to get out there and get active, believe, create or stand for something. They're the sort of lives I love to see unfolding and love to believe inspire the best in me.  I hope you find something in them too. xx
