Book Title
29 GIFTS:
How to cultivate a daily giving practice that will ignite your energy for life
by Cami Walker and the 29Gifts.org Community

Book Description
29 Gifts is the story of how 29Gifts.org founder, Cami Walker, healed from a major illness by taking an unusual prescription from a South African medicine woman. The remedy? Give 29 gifts to others in 29 days. Midway through Cami's 29 days of giving, after seeing many miraculous changes in her life, she launched a website encouraging others to take the 29 Gifts Challenge and share their stories about how it impacted their lives. Six months and 1,879 committed givers later, a publisher said YES to Cami's proposal to write a memoir. The book is scheduled for release Fall 2009. The details of the publishing contract are confidential at this time.

In addition to Cami's inspiring personal story, 29 Gifts will also include a supplemental collection of personal essays from other writers about the Healing Power of Giving.

How do you feel about making art?

I posted this over on my blogspot, but I think it should go here as well. Very heartening!

Cathy Malchiodi has a great blog entry today: Women Making Art: A Time Guiltily Seized. In it I found this lovely clip from filmmaker Pamela Tanner Boll. Her documentary, "Who Does She Think She Is?” relates the stories of five women who are professional artists and mothers, the critical importance of art in their lives, and how both parenting and art making are often devalued in our culture. Read Cathy's blog and enjoy the clip.
