Living and Sustaining a Creative Life by Sharon Louden is comprised of essays by 40 working artists who talk about - you guessed it - how they live and sustain a creative life.

The Best Offer (La Migliore Offerta) stars Geoffrey Rush as Virgil Oldman, a successful auctioneer whose sterile life unravels when a young and reclusive client, whom he eventually falls in love with, enters his life.

Many times we cannot remember why we like certain things or activities or where our habits originated. I can say that for myself for many things - I simply have no clue why I like certain things or why I have the habits that I have - except for one.
