Creative Notes

As I read in my study this morning, I saw these poems again.

Every so often, I create different arrangements, and enjoy mentioning artists here and there. I bought a small abstract painting by Anna Cull, from her Etsy Shop. Beautiful art.

Who is someone that inspires you and why?

Over the years, I have written about Luci Shaw. Her poetry and memoirs are excellent. For this post, I would like to write about two of her many books.

God in the Dark: Through Grief and Beyond, copyright 1989 by Luci Shaw, is now a classic book. I read her early memoir when it was first published. The copy I have here, as I write this post, was “Reproduced 1998 by Regent College Publishing, an Imprint of the Regent College Bookstore” in Vancouver, British Columbia.

Adventure of Ascent: Field Notes from a Lifelong Journey, copyright 2014 by Luci Shaw, was published by IVP Books, An Imprint of InterVarsity Press, Downers Grove, Illinois. A book to reread as well.

Luci Shaw The Official Website – there is a lot to read and view here. For example:

About Luci “Luci Shaw was born in 1928 in London, England, and has lived in Canada, Australia and the U.S.A.”


And some photos for my post today. Thank you.

Quote by Luci Shaw

“Each of us is called to cultivate beauty, knowing that as artists, and as those with whom we share our creative gifts, we become more whole and healed in that sharing of beauty.”
