Warrior Love: Mindful Musings and Dazzling Artwork to Ignite Your Creative Fire
Bethesda, MD - June 9, 2014 - Inspired by the serendipitous union of a group of amazing and talented artistic women, author Laura Probert worked enthusiastically to compile a collection of inspirational poetry and soulful art combined with a personalized place in which to draw, think, write and paint. The heart of Warrior Love, A Journal To Inspire Your Fiercely Alive Whole Self is is about inspiration and the healing power of art, in all its forms.
Sparked by a quote from Mary Gaitskill ("Writing is being able to take something whole and fiercely alive that exists inside of you in some unknowable combination of thought, feeling, physicality, and spirit, and to then store it like a genie in tense, tiny black symbols on a calm white page."), Probert collaborated with three female artists from Canada, New York and Maryland on the book, which combines poetry, artwork and blank journal pages to provide a beautifully inspiring collection of words and artwork that will help light your own creative fire. Probert discusses how the collaboration with Jeanette MacDonald (www.jeanettemacdonaldart.com), Mary Claire (www.maryclairestudios.com) and Atousa Raissyan www.atousaraissyan.com came about in her blog: http://taekwondospirit.com/2014/05/how-we-made-warrior-love/
Probert states, "I have been writing—journaling and poetry—since I was 15. This book just seems like me, finally coming around to who I am, in full expression, to inspire others. The idea is that we are powerful as individuals...but it multiplies exponentially when we connect and help each other." She adds, "I think 'Warrior Love' is the kind of love you need in this world—an indomitable kind of spirit."
