A - Artists (musicians, painters, photographers, writers, etc.)
R - Reading (books, poems, etc.)
T - Theater (movies, musicals, plays, etc.)
So let's begin...
Artists: Kate Cordsen (U.S.A.)
Cordsen says her experiences in Asia have "greatly influence much of who [she is]. In Japanese aesthetics [she is] drawn to the reverence of chance and of imperfection and the profound importance of empty space — in art, in literature and in daily life."
I love her ability to capture the innocence of nature.
Growing up, one of my favourite series to read was "The Russians" by Michael Phillips and Judith Pella. Characters such as Sergei and Anna made Russian history come alive for me and inspired my interest in studying Russian culture and history.
The series is now available in electronic format at Amazon and Barnes & Noble. Over the weekend it was FREE at B&N.
P.S. - There is a strong Christian presence in the books.
T: Camille Claudel (Frank Wildhorn/Nan Knighton)
