Over the weekend, Anna and I watched this documentary and really enjoyed it. (It was also the first time I’ve ever used the YouTube app on Apple TV; I had to un-hide the darn thing.)
Someday I’ll Fly is just an hour long, and it tells the story of how John Mayer got into playing guitar, how his first record came about, and subsequently how the rest of his records came about.
What’s so great about this video is that the focus is entirely on creativity, making music, and working through disillusionment as an artists.
The video is narrated by Mayer himself, and even if you’re not a Mayer fan, there are many fantastic quotes and tidbits about the journey and struggles of the creative artist.
