It’s Never Too Late

I promised you a new focus this year, so read on for what’s coming up next.

Twenty-five years ago, Julia Cameron wrote her best seller “The Artist’s Way”, a book that has helped countless people rediscover their creative selves.  She recently wrote “It’s Never Too Late to Begin Again:  Discovering Creativity and Meaning at Midlife and Beyond”.   I’m in love with the book, because she challenges those of us who are retired, or are now “senior citizens” (what a horrible label), to awaken our inner child’s sense of wonder and creativity.  

I’m telling you about the book because it includes a 12 week course in “reigniting a sense of

  • wonder
  • freedom
  • connections
  • purpose
  • honesty
  • humility
  • resilience
  • joy
  • motion
  • vitality
  • adventure and
  • faith

Wow!  Doesn’t that intrigue you?  It does me, and Cee.  So we want to start a book club where we can all explore it together.

Every week we’ll post a discussion of what was in the most recent reading assignment.  We’ll talk about what we discover and uncover about ourselves.  Weekly summaries will be on private pages on this site, open only to book club members.  We’ll also form a private FaceBook group for book club members to encourage and support each other.

Who can join?  Anyone.  While it’s geared more for people of a certain age, there is still plenty of content relevant for younger people.

What do you charge for membership?  Nothing but your sincere desire to learn and grow.  We may decide to charge a small fee in time to help defray costs of hosting a book club site, but we’ll let you know well in advance.

What do I need to buy?  Will I need supplies?  You will have to buy or borrow a copy of the book.  (You can follow the link to Amazon and read a sample.)

We’re really excited to get your input, to gauge your interest.  I think this project will be exciting and fun.  Cee and I would love for you to join us.  Add a comment below and let us know if you are interested.  But don’t wait.  We want to get started on the 25th of February.

Lots of love, hugs, rainbows and balloons.

    This is an exciting project Chris and I want to start. Expect a blog from me on our Cee-Chris.com blog in the next couple of days. It will be about how reading just the introduction has already changed my level of happiness and energy.

  2. Is this the same book as The Artist’s Way for Retirement? I have the book and started it but somehow lost the way. If it is the book I have I should certainly like to be part of your book club.

    1. I’m not sure. It’s Julia Cameron’s book, and she wrote the Artist’s Way. I don’t know if she ever issued it under another title. You can click the link “a copy of the book”, above, and read an excerpt of it on Amazon to see if it’s the same one.
