My Book Shelf

“I am on a constant quest to learn about ways that I can improve myself.”

I joked about this in my post about my greatest creative block. Too much time learning, and not enough time doing – that’s what it ultimately amounts to. That being said, even as I grow as a person I don’t think that I’m ever going to stop reading.

My interpretation of me

I also keep a physical reading log, but I saw that some other bloggers kept a log on their blog (ha) and I thought I’d join the party.

  2. “Ahhh fear, how I know thee, you who stand at the crossroads of growth and change. ” Thank you so much for the information and your sharing. Carol

  3. No problem. Thank you for checking out my site. I want to update this list in the near future, because I have some new and exciting books to add.

    Do you (or anyone else) have any suggestions?

  4. Hi Christine, thanks for your comment at I love your blog! Here’s a book you may want to add to your list: “The Tools: Transform Your Problems into Courage, Confidence, and Creativity” by Phil Stutz and Barry Michels

  5. Hello, I came across your website by chance. I searched “Abraham hicks vancouver” et voila, a link to your site appeared. I am also a Vancouver actor (for many many years) so I certainly identify with your passion, and the many ‘challenges’ we all face in the process. Ultimately the only person you need to please is yourself.

    Anyhow, I was really impressed with your drive and positiveness! Keep up the amazing work!

    Some books I’d recommend to you, “power vs force” by David Hawkins, “the Vortex” Abraham Hicks? “The Alchemist” Paulo Coehlo, “Sidhartha” by Herman Hesse, “the Power of the Actor” by Ivana Chubbuck ( I really enjoyed “intent to live” by Larry Moss… I think these 2 books are true gems for the actor”, “Story” by Robert McKee, and “Save the cat” by Blake Snyder. Also “Inside the Actors Studio” which you can find for free on YouTube is superb to sift through various actors, directors, writers with whom you may identify with.

    All the best!!

    • Hi Kev! I’ve read a few of those books (The Alchemist, Save the Cat, Intent to Live) but I hadn’t heard of many of your other suggestions. I’m so glad that you found my blog. It sounds like we are really on the same wave-length. You said you’re in Vancouver? I would love to meet up for a coffee sometime if you’re interested? Send me an e-mail:

      Thank you so much for commenting.

  6. Here’s a great quote that I find resonates with most artists ” “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?’ Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
    ― Marianne Williamson, Return to Love: Reflections on the Principles of “A Course in Miracles”
