The Ups and Downs of Living Alone in Later Lifeby Myrtle Stedman
In "The Ups and Downs of Living Alone in Later Life," Myrtle Stedman follows and develops the ideas expressed in her previously-published trilogy: "Of One Mind," "The Way Things Are or Could Be" and "Of Things to Come." In the process of her writing, she has come to view the Mind as Universal expression and receptivity ever driven by the Spirit of a biological urge-Its creativity evolving whatever It sets Itself to do for the love of doing. With a sense of humor, honesty and simplicity, she sees the Mind's work blinking in and out of range or sight, much like an artist works with a pencil in one hand and an eraser in the other, the creative attainment ever evolving. Two age-old questions, "God created" or "evolution," are thus settled to her satisfaction in this, her fourth book on the Creative Mind.
• * Myrtle Stedman was a member of PEN New Mexico, a branch of PEN Center USA West of International PEN and believed that there is no end to what the mind can do with the eye and hand, in time and in spirit. She is also the author of "Artists in Adobe," "Adobe Architecture," "Adobe Remodeling and Fireplaces," "Artists in Adobe," "A House Not Made with Hands," "Of One Mind," "Of Things to Come," "Ongoing Life," "Rural Architecture," and "The Way Things Are or Could Be," all from Sunstone Press. Larry Dossey, MD, author of "Reinventing Medicine," said, "...confident, lyrical, and unhurried-a wise woman reflecting on a meaningful life. After nearly a century, Myrtle Stedman retains the wide-eyed wonder of innocence and the skill to impart it. She is one of the world's best arguments for honoring the wisdom of elders."
