“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.

Catch the artist and authour Laurie Ritchie and I talking about ugliness and art. Sometimes, art is ugly because life frequently is. And sometimes, there's a gentleness to beauty that allows us to look at the things we are afraid of, and make the invisible visible.I was thinking symbolically the other day that the last place you'd look for evil ("the devil" ... Not the literal devil you guys!!) would be in the peace and beauty of heaven. And, conversely then, the last place you'd ever look for God would be hell. I think that this is what art allows us to do.This conversation left me with lots on my mind ... But don't worry! It's fun and playful too. I can't wait for you to hear it.Stuff We Talk About:Daily Art AppContact Laurie:Website: https://www.wholeartsconnection.com/Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/wholearts/Book: Artfelt Inspiration: Let Your Freak Flag Fly

LISTEN TO PART 1 HEREAnnette McGivney is on the People Who Know Stuff show for a really special two part episode. I spent a weekend exploring the layers of her intense and beautiful book Pure Land. What starts out as a straightforward murder mystery eventually transforms because as Annette says, “Ultimately I feel like the best stories are ones that turn back on themselves and back on the reader, and cause the reader to reflect on their own lives.”Annette and I talked about her background as an award winning writer and a teacher, and explored how writing an article about the murder of a tourist for Backpacker magazine in 2008 ultimately led her to a deep and profound story full of layers, twists and turns. Then, the conversation detours into Annette’s personal experience with violence and PTSD. She shares her journey to become a healthy, whole woman (I share about my experience with PTSD too). She shared her knowledge about healing and how ultimately this has had led her to a life of gratitude and creativity. I was so appreciative of Annette’s beautiful writing and her book that was both thrilling and heartfelt. And it turns out that she’s just lovely and smart in IRL as well.Annette’s Foundation:In Annette’s words, “Proceeds from Pure Land go to this cause which is a partnership between me, the outfitter Grand Canyon Youth and Northern Arizona University's Family Violence Institute. The Healing Lands Project funds wilderness river trips for child victims of domestic violence. We are doing our first trip for 9 kids next week!” Please visit http://www.iampureland.com/healing-lands.html to support children who have lost a parent to family violence to connect with nature, healing and hope for their future.Contact Annette:Email: amcgivney@aol.comWebsite: www.annettemcgivney.comFacebook: @annettemcgivneybooksInstagram: https://www.instagram.com/annettemcgivney/Twitter: @AnnetteMcGivney

Audrey Wick is a full time professor of English at Blinn College in Texas. Her diverse writing includes short stories, non fiction and ghost writing projects. I recently read her novel Finding True North and a second novel Coming Home is due to be released in July 2018. During our conversation, Audrey shared her experiences and wisdom with the editing process, the difference between personal writing and writing we want to share, and what to do if you don’t quite know what you want to be when you grow up. I loved her thoughts about how being a reader influences writing, marrying aptitudes and interests to chart a path that makes sense for us and finding small moments of free time and using them to build worlds. Audrey knows also knows how to produce something fresh and meaningful, how to handle language and about exploring the world – whether by travelling around it, or starting the day with a warm cup of coffee.Stuff Audrey Loves:Stuff from Childhood:The Wizard of OzThe Babysitters Club booksHank the Cowdog seriesRichard Linklater Films:Before SunriseBefore SunsetBefore MidnightMusic:Norah JonesJack JohnsonConnect With Audrey:Email:audreywick@yahoo.comWebsite:https://audreywick.comInstagram:@WickWritesTwitter:@WickWritesOther Social Media Links:http://tulepublishing.com/authors/audrey-wick/
