#1 New Release in Art Instruction ? Explore the Connection Between Diet and Creativity If you liked Brain Food, Breaking the Habit of Being Yourself or Grain Brain, you’ll love A Bright Clean Mind. Vegan Food is Everywhere: When people ask how author and certified vegan lifestyle coach Camille DeAngelis feels satisfied on a vegan diet, she thinks of the moment in James and the Giant Peach when the Grasshopper and the Centipede fret that they have nothing to eat until James points out that they're traveling inside an enormous piece of fruit. There is plenty, Camille reminds us in A Bright Clean Mind, a self-help motivational book for artists and creatives. Everything we could ever want to eat, and more, is all around us. Imagine a Better Life: Because we live in a culture in which the eating and wearing of animals is taken for granted, we rarely recognize our limiting meat-centric mindset. But if we can employ our imagination to create worlds from scratch, we can surely use our imaginative power to envision a new way of seeing ourselves in relation to the animals we eat. On the other side of this brain transformation is a lifestyle that is ideal for our own health and emotional well-being and is much more environmentally sustainable. Improve Your Work Flow: Camille believes that creative hobbies and habits reinvigorate one's primary work. But she knits, sews, embroiders, and bakes for the pleasure of it, too. Her productivity and brain power have been remarkable since going vegan seven years ago, and even more importantly, she no longer feels any of the frustration or uncertainty artists tend to accept as part of the creative process. A Bright Clean Mind is perfect for every creative suffering from brain fog. In this book, you will discover: The effect your diet may be having on your creativity and mood Examples of how going vegan is basically giving yourself brain food Ways to incorporate a vegan diet into your busy life

Biblical scripture often speaks of Angelic visits. We are told by the Ancient ones that the purpose of their visits was to enlighten humanity with a divine message, direct their path, or save a soul in peril.

Landgrave Frederick II of Hesse Cassel signed a Treaty with King George III of England to provide a Jaeger Corps, to help fight the rebellious Colonials in North America. The trouble was no such unit existed. Andreas Wattenbach, a man of minor nobility with distinguished service in the Seven Year War and a respected Jaegermeister, had the unique qualifications needed to establish such units. However, he was happily married and expecting his first child. Then his wife and son died in childbirth and he no longer had reason not to comply with the Landgraves request. He threw himself into the task and soon found himself headed for North America on sea voyage which he feared worse than facing an enemy's cannon. He ended up in Canada with an independent command to test the concept of the new unit in the expected campaign from Canada down to New York City in the summer of 1777. He found himself a pawn in an environment where the senior English leadership was engaged in internecine bureaucratic fighting over responsibilities, prerogatives and recognition while the English rank and file considered their Tories allies as unreliable and unappreciative, their German allies as incompetent, their Indian allies as children and the Whigs rebels as cowards. The senior leadership didn't know what the Jeagers were or how they should be used. Andreas found himself working in the no man's land between the British and Rebel Armies where they couldn't tell which Indians were friend and which were enemies. The Indians couldn't tell which soldiers were friendly combatants which were deserters, or Rebel Soldiers. Neither could tell which colonials were friendly Tories or Whig rebels. In this environment a split second error in judgment could mean their own life or the death of an ally. Through all this Andreas tried reconcile his duty to God with his loyalty to his Prince and service to the British while maintaining his own integrity, filling his responsibility to his men and searching for his own ideals. The Campaign from the North started with a triumphant departure from St John of a splendid expeditionary army, confident that they would soon be celebrating victory and the end of the American rebellion in New York City while waiting for transportation home. They won an easy victory at Ticonderoga, but soon ran into an increasingly competent adversary and themselves started to disintegrate, until it was a starving, depleted and dispirited force that faced an overwhelming and confident rebel army at the battle of Bemis heights. Andreas lead the remnant of his Jaeger Company on a futile advance into the face of the rebel guns. By the end of the bravely fought battle the future of the United States and of Andreas had been decided.
