Founder and owner of the Word Garden, Mary Anne Radmacher makes her art her life and her life an art. And in Lean Forward into Your Life she invites us to do the same. Or as she says, Lean Forward into Your Life is a commonplace book for leading an uncommon life. An uncommon life need not include fame and fortune. An uncommon life means living with intention, paying attention, celebrating, taking care of yourself, risking love. To live an uncommon life is to live large from the heart. Each section of Lean Forward into Your Life opens with a hand-lettered aphorism in the author's signature collage style. The essays, stories, and exercises that follow are designed to bring the reader into her or his own uncommon life. In the tradition of The Invitation, by Oriah Mountain Dreamer and I Will Not Die an Unlived Life by Dawna Markova, poems that evolved into best-selling books, Lean Forward into Your Life is an intimate book that leads readers into the center of their own ability to change the world. * An invitation to the millions of people who want to make the most of their lives and leave the world a slightly better place.
