Tippi Benjamine Okanti Degré, daughter of French wildlife photographers Alain Degré and Sylvie Robert, was born in Namibia. During her childhood she befriended many wild animals, including a 28-year old elephant called Abu and a leopard nicknamed J&B. She was embraced by the Bushmen and the Himba tribespeople of the Kalahari, who taught her how to survive on roots and berries, as well as how to speak their language.

Try to learn to breathe deeply, really to taste food when you eat, and when you sleep, really to sleep. Try as much as possible to be wholly alive with all your might, and when you laugh, laugh like hell. And when you get angry, get good and angry. Try to be alive. You will be dead soon enough.

Being creative isn’t the same as being smart. The process our brains go through to generate new insights is quite different from when we’re solving analytical problems. You’re not just “born with it” either—the fascinating science behind creativity suggests very specific conditions can enliven your imagination.
In particular, research shows creativity spurs from three things:
- A lot of dopamine—Activities like taking a warm shower, listening to music, cooking and exercising releases dopamine in the brain.
- Relaxation—The dopamine triggers calmness and relaxation.
- Distraction—The relaxation disrupts the commotion in your head. As your subconscious is allowed to meander, it touches on new ideas and plants them into your conscious mind—the “light bulb” moment.
Keep listening to music because it will save your soul.
More and more I found myself at a loss for words and didn’t want to hear other people talking either. Their conversations seemed false and empty. I preferred to look at the sea, which said nothing and never made you feel alone.
