"Just as a candle cannot burn without fire, men cannot live without a spiritual life." — Buddha

On the 6th night of Chanukah, I'd like to share with you a gift that will enrich your soul. Read the chapter of Tanya Grosman, from Particular Passions: Talks with Women who Have Shaped our Times, the story of a Jewish woman, who came from wealth and privilege but lost everything when her family fled Russia. With imagination, courage and doggedness, she learned about lithography, developed a business with techniques that noone had been using in America, drew artists like Jasper Johns, Rauschenberg,  Jim Dine to her atelier, collaborated with them, and nurtured news skills.  They went on to became icons in the world of art.

The chapter is part of Particular Passions, which got wonderful reviews:

"One of those rare, rare books that pick your life up, turn it around and point it in the right direction."   —K.T. Maclay

Try it, you wont be disappointed.
