My rapture of a good book
I cannot seem to put down the current book I am reading down. Every chance I get of free time, a break from work, or when I'm bored, I pick up Living and Sustaining a Creative Life. Edited by Sharon Louden it's an incredible collection of essays by 40 working artists. Not only has it introuduced me to new artists to discover, I also get their story. I learn what their daily lives constists of, if they have childern, where they live, their first job out of graduate school, and how they sustain their creative life. As an artist I feel urge to share this book with as many people as I can, to young inspiring artists like myself, to anyone with an interest in our lives, and most importantly to my parents, to prepare them for the life ahead of me. Cheers to being an artist, I am inspired everyday by my surrounding piers and feel honored to start a new semester with all of you.
