Wisdom speaks in ink
and paper whispers stories.
Hearts can meet in books.
Haiku My Heart is dedicated
this week to three books
that have spoken to my heart,
opened my mind
to possibilities that I had not known
were waiting there.
"Standing at the Water's Edge" by Anne Paris
is dedicated to helping creative folk past their
blocks and heartaches.
Anne is a PhD
and has focused a good part of her life
on learning how to help us open
to the great spirit driven creativity
that lives like a flickering candle flame within us all,
then instructs us how to take that tiny candle flame into a full burning light
that can be found whenever
we need to.
I highly recommend her book.
"The Artist's Path"
also a PhD
who has created a similar work, but with more
spiritual a focus,
giving us twelve chapters of lectio divinia,
and spiritual openings for our creative soul.
Christine is part of a Benedictine community,
living out in the world,
and sharing her God given inspirations in
a way that enchants and opens.
Last is "Alla Prima"
who is not a PhD, but is a master painter,
who has taken the time
to share a lifetime of painting wisdom.
Hands on, this book is.
I am inspired not only by his words of wisdom, but by his wonderful
brushwork and simple colors.
These three have been my inspirational
reading for 2011
and are providing a path for me
into 2012. I hope you find them as
wonderful as I do.
for more Haiku My Heart,
Join the equaling inspiring Rebecca
Rebecca is also a giver of heart wings
and spirit flights.
don't miss her or the other members of
Haiku my heart.
