The Creative Spirit Series

The Creative Spirit Series is a 3-book nonfiction series. The books are more meditations and personal thoughts on the creative process than how-to-do books. We don’t have desires by accident. Good desires are planted in us because we are meant to follow them, explore them, wrestle with them, and have them form us. If we do this and do it in the right way, the result is happiness. If we do anything in the right way, the result is happiness. The first book, of the series, is Dance: A Spiritual Affair. The second book is Writing: A Spiritual Voice. The third book is Strange Words: Poems and Prayers.
