Excerpt from Creative Prayer Books on Prayer may be roughly divided into those which treat of its scientific aspect, whether it be from the standpoint of philosophy or from that of psychology, and those which are written with a purely devotional purpose. In these pages I have endeavoured to elucidate the meaning and value of prayer as a creative process, whereby the man who prays and his world are made anew.

In this day and age, when art has become more of a commodity and art school graduates are convinced that they can only make a living from their work by attaining gallery representation, it is more important than ever to show the reality of how a professional, contemporary artist sustains a creative practice over time. The 40 essays collected here in Living and Sustaining a Creative Life are written in the artists’ own voices and take the form of narratives, statements and interviews. Each story is different and unique, but the common thread is an ongoing commitment to creativity, inside and outside the studio. Both day-to-day and Big Picture details are revealed, showing how it is possible to sustain a creative practice that contributes to the ongoing dialogue in contemporary art. These stories will inform and inspire any student, young artist and art enthusiast, and will help redefine what ‘success’ means to a professional artist.

Excerpt from The Supreme Adventure This metrical story of the future life, which voices the persistent aspiration and unquenchable faith of all the ages, also looks beyond the incident of death with the bold eye of a soldier of the great war, a member of the Foreign Legion and winner of the War Cross who, be fore he was killed ih action, wrote thus to a friend in his native America: Living as we do with death as a constant companion has but deepened my conviction of something after this life. A man's soul must include his capacity for action, work, his creative faculties. The numbers of young men just on the threshold of their creative life - these men, killed, utterly destroyed in a second by a few ounces of explosive, have made im possible the belief that all their minds held is definitely lost to humanity. I believe that death is followed by life as surely as sunset is followed by sunrise, but by a life much more closely related to this one than theologi cal dogma would have us believe. All this has taught me to regard death as an episode. It has lost much of its mystery and all of its terror. I have a curiosity, an eagerness, to see and begin the new life, tempered by a wish to know this one a little more fully.'

Excerpt from The Married Life of Rachel Lady Russell As romance is so much in request, why not search for it in history? There, will be found life, with its most varied and dramatic scenes, the human heart with its strongest as well as its most gentle passions, and above all a sovereign charm, the charm of reality. I admire and appreciate as much as any person the creative power of imagination, which places before us endowed with life, animation and feeling, ideal beings invested with the attributes of humanity, and display ing all the riches of the mind through the ever-varying vicissitudes of fortune; but those persons who have really lived, who have actually experienced calami ties, passions, joys and sorrows, the contemplation of which is so interesting to us, fascinate me still more powerqy than the most perfect productions of poe try or romance. The living creature, the work of God, when seen under its divine aspects, is more beau tiful than all human creation, and of all poets God is the greatest.

A passionate and inspiring guide to creating a life built around the creative process. This groundbreaking new work from the bestselling author of The Artist's Way, guides readers in creating a vision for their lives in which art and life are inextricably linked. According to Julia Cameron, when we allow our creative spirit to serve as our compass, we discover that the art we have always longed to create is suddenly within our grasp. In The Creative Life, Cameron shows readers how to use their creative hearts and minds to cultivate lives that nourish and sustain their art. Through beautifully drawn scenes from her own life, as well as the lives of the many artists around her, Cameron reveals that creativity flourishes during the quiet pauses in our lives-and that it is only when we allow ourselves to slow down and savor life that we discover ways to depict it sensitively and poetically in our art. By opening the curtain on her own life and the lives of the artists who surround her, Cameron reveals a world rich with creative possibility.
