Living On Purpose

How we live our lives is very much on my mind, as I'm sure it is on millions who are setting goals this month. With 2007 behind us and 2008 in action, I'm excited to be participating in a blog tour with Eric Maisel. Do you remember "Ten Zen Seconds"? Well, Eric Maisel has released another of his books, The Van Gogh Blues in paperback.

The Van Gogh Blues Blog Tour starts in ten days. I am happy to host Eric Maisel on my blog on February 11 as part of the eight week blog tour. Be sure to visit. I will be posting more information about the blog tour schedule soon.

To hear him, you can listen to Eric Maisel's podcast, Your Purpose-Centered Life, on which he is currently chatting about “How Purpose Heals Depression,” a nine-part series directly related to The Van Gogh Blues
In this series Eric Maisel looks at the relationships among creativity, meaning, and depression and answers some fundamental questions about why creative people have an extra measure of depression to deal with, the measure that arrives because of our existential concerns and because of the way that we experience meaning as challenging and problematic. In this week’s show Eric looks at what happens when life loses its meaning and a meaning crisis is precipitated. Good listening!

Shake off those blues with meaning.

  1. Anne,
    I'm looking forward to being on the Van Gough Blues blog tour with you...another Eric Maisel book blog tour...interesting reunion, won't it be? I love the look of your blog. The description of your paintings is done very well. It's hard to describe paintings in words, isn't it? That's why they're paintings, no?
