A NEW LEAF
in the Creative Life
It takes courage to turn a new leaf, a passion for self- discovery, and a sense of fun. The five volumes of New Leaf journals, filled with wisdom and surprise, describe a life lived on its own terms. The author echoes our own passions, fears, and hopes in ways that reveal us to ourselves with humor and insight. Its free spirit makes us laugh and coaxes us to be ourselves. Jim Gold brings a love of people, and of music, dance, languages, and cultures to all his work. Jim has kept journals for over thirty years. They cover all his pursuits, his struggles to remain gleefully free in a world of restraints, and his hunger to discover the vastness of the world around him and of the inner life. In making the New Leaf journals available to a wider audience, Full Court Press hopes to reveal Gold’s keen eye for the truth and the preposterous to readers.
