Far More Than Mere Lyrical Metaphors and Allegories!
An excellent work of creative literature and a must read for anyone questioning how their belief system is meant to affect their purpose in life! Filled with hilarious “playful jaunts” and insightful stories from Michael's childhood. An outstanding read for the stoic and the thespian! As Michael puts it,
“Art, along with all work is the ordering of creation toward the intention of the creator.”
“Most of human creativity gets ignored for the genius that it is... Take sewer systems for example...”
As a Christian who happens to be a Filmmaker it has been easy for me to slip into a dogmatic perspective of my creativity. But Michael, through humility and vulnerability in sharing his own story removes the vail from the mystery that is our Creator's intent for our existence.
This book was exactly what I needed! It helped me realize where I was producing for the wrong reasons, and set my feet back on solid ground from which now I can truly create! I was extremely blessed through Michael's wisdom and insight. And if he were ever to read this review, I would say, “Thank You”.
“Whether or not we create is not up to us. We are human, and creating is what we do. Every interaction, movement, and decision is creativity at work.”
