by: Julia Cameron
Twenty-five years ago Julia Cameron wrote a book called The Artist’s Way, which changed the culture and put countless people in touch with their own creativity. Now she is 65 and, while much is different and she is an Elder, the same principles apply: the basic tools are the Morning Pages, writing memoir, having a weekly Artist’s Date where you do something fun, and walking for twenty minutes twice a week without distractions. The book is structured in twelve sections covering twelve weeks. Julia has a vast amount of experience to guide us through this daunting time of life. Most of us are looking for meaning and, because she has aged too, she can use all her experience to coax us to be creative even in our retirement.
