CREATIVE LIFE ___________________________
Amanda Blake Soule’s latest book, The Creative Family Manifesto, is her homage to creativity and charts how it has been the hallmark of her family’s growth and love. Raising 5 children in Maine has been quite an experience for Amanda, and the impact of creativity, nature and the simple pleasure of her surroundings has been profound. Amanda explains how to nurture the creative mind and to be resourceful in so doing. She expands on the importance of fostering imagination and supporting the tradition of handmade. She shows how it is possible to be creative about almost everything.
She tells us to encourage curiosity, to embrace the mess, to share your passions with the world and to play, play, play (no matter how old you are). Her instructions to seek beauty, to be still sometimes and to love fiercely are powerful reminders of how to live the journey of life.
