A Review of The Meaning in the Making

by Sean Tucker

Creatives at large on their own long sojourns of self-discovery and personal expression will find much to admire, inspire, and appreciate about Sean Tucker’s recapitulation of The Artist’s Journey in his compact but deeply insightful book, The Meaning in the Making. The most fortunate decision made by the perceptive author — primarily a photographer by nature — was to embed in these reflections all the accessory interests informing his primary outlet. In particular, his prolonged life inquiries into writing, psychology, philosophy, and spirituality are all allowed to enhance, expand, and individualize the messages offered here. As a result, the reader at any level benefits from the author’s authenticity and clear intention to provoke a positive response. One becomes derailed from most contemporary commercial efforts to cookbook ones way to fame, and instead finds here a mentor and fellow traveler who not only encourages, but commiserates as well.

My nephew gifted me this minor gem of writing, because the writer and I share so many interests, especially regarding the deepest levels of the creative process. In The Meaning in the Making, Sean Tucker identifies and explicates the commonalities within all artistic pursuits — a perfect mirror for life’s challenges, goals, and meanings — making of this small compendium of inquiries and personal sharing a compassionate companion rather than a pontificating profiteer. Perhaps that is why one feels so grateful for this highly personal, highly emotive, highly caring treatment of creativity and meaning. This speaks to the heart of those who make things for a living. Things whose meanings derive precisely from the life lived and understood. A proper message for the ages.
