A profound, dense and 'gifted' book
This book changed how I looked at life and being an artist. It pointed out how one's life can be filled with value through receiving, using and giving our (artistic) gifts. It shows how our lives can be gifted and have a feeling of abundance or 'fecundity' if we give our lives to expressing our gifts. We look to find value in the commercial world, but we really find value in the world by being open to receiving gifts from God and from giving them back to the community. It is a profound, dense book, that I didn't always understand, but this book has been a gift to my life.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Ideas we need
This book is interesting on many levels, his main argument of art being a gift, not a commodity, are not hard to swallow. But the true joy in this book is the reminder that giving and generousity spawn giving and generousity. With so little time, so little excess energy, so little money after we pay bills, it's hard to remember how rich we become by giving.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
