Scott Cluthe interviews two guests coming from different sides of the human experience. First he talks with co-author Susyn Reeves. Her new book is The Inspired Life from Viva Editions. What is an "inspired life"? Can it be cultivated? Does it come naturally for some while being unattainable for others? Some people wake each morning sure of their purpose, but for most of us, it's not that simple. Through stories, meditations and unique practices in this book, you will learn exactly how to find and maintain inspiration in your daily life. Susyn Reeve and Joan Breiner's powerful message is directed to those of us who need a helpful reminder, a gentle nudge to open our minds and hearts to the vast creative potential alive in each moment. It begins with making a conscious choice—with saying, "Yes, I choose an inspired life."
The Inspired Life will be your soul's daily companion, a guide to overcoming personal blocks and obstacles to fulfillment and joy.
Then Scott interviews Alan Kaufman, author of the gut wrenching book, Druken Angel. Drunken Angel probes the consciousness of an addict to expose the true horror of alcoholism. Alan Kaufman's searing memoir is a surreal reading experience full of stylistic acrobatics that speak to the genius of a writer nearly lost.
Son of a French Holocaust survivor, Alan Kaufman was an alcoholic so mauled by his indulgences that it is a marvel that he was alive enough to get into recovery. With his estranged daughter as inspiration, Kaufman cleaned himself up at age 40, taking full responsibility for nearly destroying himself, his work, and so many loved ones along the way. You will be mesmerized by his brutal and beautiful account of his ceaseless, losing battle against his addiction.
