Understanding the phenomena that takes over when
we are creating.  That sense of OTHER which comes
through us.  Learning more about  that driving
Force which  takes over in our creative moments.
That spirit that moves us.  The Spirit of
Creativity  is alive in all humans , only, to
awaken as we pursue the arts.  The feeling of
necessity to express our selves   as we abstract
our emotions into songs in poetry or paintings
and dance, music to our ears.  Something comes
over us.

We actually enter a state of Bliss.  An altered
state of consciousness.  A separation of mind and
body from the work we do.  Coming to know what it
is to be in this  state of Grace where in we
receive this Gift,  is so very important to our
sense of well being.  A well balanced existence.

Much of my life was lived in a state flux of
betwixt and between, in the as yet to be
,creating and crashing which all artists
experience,  out of the chaos into being and it
was not until I came upon the book describing
what I had been going through in a language I had
never heard spoken before.

 It was through   working out the lessons in
"Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain".
http://drawright.com,  that I became more
and more in tune with what I was experiencing as
a creator person.   Learning how to make the
cognitive shift between the left and right side
of the brain which made a huge change in my every
day life.  I no longer came away from my painting
only to be disoriented, some times walking into
walls, and not really being able to talk.

Understanding this phenomena became my mission.

It is with this spirit of creativity that I hope
to share a good list of reading   that will help
each of us  to come to know and experience the
sensation that  informs you.
