'The Things of Our Youth'

Dreams: Our fond hopes and aspirations. Dreams are born of crisis. Dreams are born of chance. Dreams are born of choice. The early to mid 1990's was an awful time for me an my family. Picture one bad thing crashing in on top of the other. 'Why God'?, I cried, more in despair,then anger. I was heartbroken. THE ARTIST'S WAY is a guide on the journey to recapture and nourish the things of our youth; spontaneity, joy, adventurousness, and creativity. 'In a sense,' writes author Julia Cameron, ' our lives become our work of art.' If Cameron is correct,then I had allowed my work to reflect a life filled with 'crazymakers,' 'dream killers,' and codependece. I had lost sight of precious priorities. The atrophy of success had dulled my sense of possibility. Using her own life illustrations, Julia Cameron presents a progression of exercises for a twelve week program to reclaim 'the creative self.' I recommend 'reading deprivation.' ('For most blocked creatives reading is an addiction. We gobble the words of others rather than digest our own thoughts and feelings, rather than cook up something of our own.') I also recommend affirmations.(Put them in writing.) Cameron calls THE ARTIST'S WAY her spiritual journey,'a pilgrimage home to the self.' It is for me.

Virtually unreadable

I love The Artist’s Way and decided to buy this edition and read it again on my Nook. There are typos on every page, sometimes more than two are three. The word “are” appears as “arc” 75% of the time, which is incredibly distracting and annoying. Three or four words ...
I love The Artist’s Way and decided to buy this edition and read it again on my Nook. There are typos on every page, sometimes more than two are three. The word “are” appears as “arc” 75% of the time, which is incredibly distracting and annoying. Three or four words run together several times on a page. Many times the letter “e” in any word appears as “c”, forcing me to re-read a sentence to make any sense of. "Teach" is "Tcach". I can't even figure out what "yecchy" means.
You would think they would have taken more care with such an important book. Waste of money.
