    Enlightening, Encouraging, Energizing, Enigmatic
    I’ve read about ten versions of the Tao te Ching recently, but none as beautiful, encouraging and uplifting as this one. Anyone who has struggled with creating will benefit from this enlightened version of one of the world’s oldest collections of philosophical verses. Here’s a taste from Verse One entitled, “Before the Beginning: Getting Started”. To create is to struggle with the empty spaces of the canvas, the blank page, or the void of the empty stage. To live is to do the same. Before the shapes take form, there is the nothingness. There must be nothingness before the beginning. Before the beginning is prologue: all that has come before.

    This book sits by my bedside.
    Several years ago I ran across The Creative Tao and it has become one of my “go to” books when my creative juices slow down. It has become so helpful to me that I bought this copy for one of my artist friends. It’s a great help for regaining perspective for anyone in the arts. The only downside is that the left pages are in Chinese, with English on the right. The Chinese is in very old characters that are not easily to translate. My daughter-in-law is Chinese, and she is unable to read them. Hence, any direct translation seems unlikely. This has not been a problem for those I know in the painting field, and I cannot say enough good things about the helpful little gems on each page.
