Ending Up Creative: My Search for Renewal Through the Arts
An unforgettable memoir of a search for personal renewal through the creative arts. When his beloved career as a magazine editor comes to an unexpected end, Bill Thompson glimpses a “now or never” opportunity to dive headlong into his deferred passion for the creative arts. He can now throw himself into daytime art classes, learning to draw the human figure from direct observation. Always having yearned to sing, he takes up the mandolin and ventures into the world of fast-paced bluegrass music. Finally, he decides to write a book and finds his topic in an isolated Pennsylvania village whose people endured the crash of a hijacked airliner on 9/11. As his artistic quest stretches from year to year, Bill must surmount the hurdles of any older adult who aspires to create something beautiful. Ultimately, will Bill find the artistic fulfilment he craves--or will he discover a source of renewal that was entirely unexpected?
