the War of Art by Steven Pressfield

Don't be put off by the title of this one, as I was initially. Someone left behind a copy in the office of a professor friend. He picked it up thinking "what is this?" Opened to the first page and found himself reading the book to its finish, and then recommending it to me. It's good. A fairly quick read, and a kick, if you need it, in the creative pants. In reading it, I was reminded of the importance of honoring the Muse, to pay respect to the source of inspiration when I find myself channeling new work, ideas, experiments. To make a ritual for saying thank you. I had not done this in awhile, had sort of forgotten about speaking to one's Source. It has felt good to return to this connection in a focused, tangible way.
