Thank you for your article about Dean Valentine's art collection ("A Most Personal Gallery," May 8). As a struggling artist, the article prompted me to reevaluate my path and purpose and validated for me that I am headed in the right direction. In my late 20s and 30s, my then-husband and I caught the collecting bug. During divorce negotiations, the art collection was the last holdout for both of us. Through the pain and confusion, I found myself exploring my own artistic tendencies, eventually working for a gallery to learn the business of art, then pursuing my own art. I was forced to sell my treasured pieces to finance my dream.

Old Friend From Far Away The Practice of Writing Memoir Natalie Goldberg Free Press: 322 pp., $25 WHY so many memoirs? "In the center of our speed, in the core of our forward movement," Natalie Goldberg explains in "Old Friend From Far Away," "we are often confused and lonely. That's why we have turned so full-heartedly to the memoir form. We have an intuition that it can save us. Writing is the act of reaching across the abyss of isolation to share and reflect."

How fitting that the highly theatrical practice of photographer Julia Margaret Cameron should itself make its way into a piece of theater. The short play, "Freshwater," named after the Isle of Wight home where Cameron did most of her work, was written in 1923 by Virginia Woolf, Cameron's great-niece. Woolf never knew Cameron directly, because she was born a few years after the photographer's death in 1879, but she did her homework. The piece is both knowing and affectionate.

A lot of people have been spotted lately with that book--a shiny large format paperback, often dogeared from use, with its distinctive cover design of Mt. Fuji. It took three years on the market to make "The Artist's Way," published in 1992 by Tarcher/Putnam, a bestseller. Written by Julia Cameron with Mark Bryan, the guidebook, subtitled "A Spiritual Path to Higher Creativity," is selling at the rate of 30,000 copies a month.

Julia Margaret Cameron didn't pick up a camera until she had lived almost half a century and given birth to six children, but she made up for lost time. She created more than 3,000 photographs in about 15 years--from 1864 to her death in 1879--and is widely regarded as one of the most original and accomplished photographers of the 19th century.
