update on... stylist, author & blogger pia jane bijkerk

Not so long ago a reader recommended Pia Jane Bijkerk as a person to interview for Daily Imprint. In actual fact, I had already done so - but it was way back in 2008. Since then Pia has returned to live in Australia, and published a few more beautiful books, including the breathtaking My Heart Wanders.

The original interview ran here.

Which five words best describe you? Passionate. Candid. Rambling. Quiet. Flawed.
What’s your proudest achievement? Any time that I am able to express myself clearly and succinctly I am a bit proud. It doesn't happen often.
Who inspires you? Right now I am totally inspired by my fellowbloggers and blog readers. I love blogging. In my humble opinion its the best technological creation to date.
What are you passionate about? Life: Mine and everyone else's.
What’s the best lesson you’ve learnt? To just get on with it.
Which person, living or dead, would you most like to meet?Songwriter + musician Ani DiFranco who is able to not only express herself clearly and succinctly on a regular basis, but also has the ability of "getting on with it".
What’s next? I will most likely have a shower and then pour myself another cup of tea. In other news, my first book will be published next year, and I have a few fun projects in the making that include more writing, more photography, more travelling, more styling, more drawings, and more music.
What are you reading? Just finished reading Mary Shaffer's The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, and have just started reading Sean Condon's My 'Dam Life. The two books couldn't be further worlds apart, but both inspire and intrigue me equally.
