The Life of the Creative Spirit Book Review:

Drawing upon the ideas of more than three hundred notable creators, including painters, scientists, mathematicians, entrepreneurs, writers, poets, naturalists, actors, and rock climbers, The Life of the Creative Spirit explains how to work at most any vocation or avocation as an artist would. For employers, it gives insights for keeping creative workers happy. For educators and parents, it gives ideas for schooling the young and turning them on to a life of creative work. For the young, it offers better understanding of themselves and their career possibilities. For older creators, it gives strategies for keeping their creative faculties and interest going strong. And for readers in general, it gives an increased appreciation of creativity and its role in society, of the oneness of the aesthetic and the moral, and of how creative work puts spirituality into creators' lives, leading them to what the writer Jack London called ultimate happiness. The book presents new and valuable reasons for humanely treating animals and for preserving nature. It explains that compassion to animals is an integral part of a creative society, and that the more animals are revered and treated kindly, the more creative society will be. It explains that nature is likewise an integral part of a creative society, and that the current destruction of wilderness and species suppresses creativity in society, thereby suppressing the production of great goodness we give to each other through our art and work. Quotations of notable creators comprise half of the book. The author has collected them in the course of scholarly research of studying published diaries, journals, letters, and other autobiographical material, with the intent of making the collection form a gestalt on the topic of creativity. Table of Contents Chapter One: Introduction To Important Matters PART ONE: The Nature Of Creative Work Chapter Two: What A Project Is Chapter Three: How Projects Are Recursive Chapter Four: How Projects Use Modeling Chapter Five: How Creators Collaborate Chapter Six: What Goodness And Quality Are Chapter Seven: Where Quality Comes From Chapter Eight: How Inner And Outer Excellence Run Each Other Chapter Nine: How The Creative Spirit And Quality Humanize Us Chapter Ten: What Motivates Creators Chapter Eleven: How To Be A Universal Artist PART TWO: Examples Of Creators At Work Chapter Twelve: The Work Of The Artist Chapter Thirteen: The Work Of The Scientist Chapter Fourteen: The Work Of The Mathematician Chapter Fifteen: The Work Of The Mechanic Chapter Sixteen: The Work Of The Entrepreneur Chapter Seventeen: The Work Of The Rock Climber Chapter Eighteen: The Work Of The Collector PART THREE: The Responsibilities Of Creators Chapter Nineteen: Guarding Against A Life Given To Sensual Pleasures Chapter Twenty: Raising Children Chapter Twenty-one: Raising Oneself Chapter Twenty-two: Revering Every Form Of Life Chapter Twenty-three: Knowing And Preserving Nature PART FOUR: Credos Of Creative Workers September 2002 review in National Review Network (New Age Retailer magazine). Reviewer: Thomas Peter von Bahr, Pacific NorthWest Group, Lopez Island, Wash. This plain-covered, inconspicuous book is more than 350 pages long. The first 165 pages are Dr. H. Charles Romesburg's own, and the rest of the book is a collection of wonderful excerpts from the writings of many artists and "creators," ranging from Georgia O'Keeffe to Bertrand Russell to Rainer Maria Rilke to Maria Callas. So readers are treated not only to the rich fabric of thought of humanist and professor of forestry Romesburg as he examines what cultivates a creative life but also to inspiring musings about creativity by noted artists, writers, and thinkers.

Homage to the Creative Spirit Book Review:

For centuries artists have been challenging their intellects and skills by paying homage to the painters who preceded them. Jenness Cortez has emerged as the twenty-first century's most notable exponent of this facet of art history. Her masterful work gives Cortez solid footing in the colorful lineage of artists who have appropriated vintage images and woven them into their own distinctive, recognizable fabric. Cortez reexamines the classic paradox of realism: the painting both as a “window” into an imagined space and as a physical object. Her work challenges the viewers' intellectual curiosity and celebrates the sheer pleasure of beautiful painting. In her series of Homage paintings, Cortez plays author, architect, visual journalist, art historian, curator and pundit to help open our eyes to what we might otherwise have overlooked or taken for granted. Each painting presents a specific theme, mixing straightforward cues and obscure allusions, complemented by references to other artists' lives and times. By masterfully presenting iconic works of art in unexpected modern settings, Jenness Cortez inspires us to see differently––to rediscover and revalue our own creative power in everyday life. This volume surveys and celebrates the Homage to the Creative Spirit series in fifty-four examples that display the range and variety of Cortez' achievement. A key to the impact and success of these paintings is the skill with which she achieves meticulous likenesses of everyday objects.

The Collective Imagination Book Review:

The Collective Imagination explores the social foundations of the human imagination. In a lucid and wide-ranging discussion, Peter Murphy looks at the collective expression of the imagination in our economies, universities, cities, and political systems, providing a tour-de-force account of the power of the imagination to unite opposites and find similarities among things that we ordinarily think of as different. It is not only individuals who possess the power to imagine; societies do as well. A compelling journey through various peak moments of creation, this book examines the cities and nations, institutions and individuals who ply the paraphernalia of paradoxes and dialogues, wry dramaturgy and witty expression that set the act of creation in motion. Whilst exploring the manner in which, through the media of pattern, figure, and shape, and the miracles of metaphor, things come into being, Murphy recognises that creative periods never last: creative forms invariably tire; inventive centres inevitably fade. The Collective Imagination explores the contemporary dilemmas and historic pathos caused by this-as cities and societies, periods and generations slip behind in the race for economic and social discovery. Left bewildered and bothered, and struggling to catch up, they substitute empty bombast, faded glory, chronic dullness or stolid glumness for initiative, irony, and inventiveness. A comprehensive audit of the creativity claims of the post-modern age - that finds them badly wanting and looks to the future - The Collective Imagination will appeal to sociologists and philosophers concerned with cultural theory, cultural and media studies and aesthetics.

The Drawing Mind Book Review:

When we drew as children, we never worried about making mistakes—we took risks and trusted ourselves, and had fun in the process. But as we become adults, anxiety steps in: “Am I doing this right?” “What is expected of me?” “This is wrong!” And from drawing, we can extrapolate into the rest of our lives. The fear of making a mistake hinders us from being as creative as we could be. Deborah Putnoi’s interactive sketchbook helps us reconnect to that open, nonjudgmental state, which she calls the “drawing mind.” Her bold, lively drawings and encouraging instructions lead you on a process of self-discovery, first reclaiming the freedom to express yourself through drawing and then learning how to take that freedom into the activities of your daily life.

Converse in the Spirit Book Review:

Underlining the importance to both of a living creative and spiritual tradition, Converse in the Spirit argues that the relationship between Blake and Boehme was a meeting of like minds that transcended place and time, that each regarded himself as part of a community of vision and aspiration, and believed that any predominant form of thought and understanding was only partial. Through this, Boehme is used to illuminate the more esoteric aspects of Blake, and Blake those of Boehme. Their writings are not a simple or direct description on the movements of divinity, nor of what divinity is or is not, but a medium for approaching it, and for participating in the creation of the sacred, the giving of personal, individual form to the divine.
