A Picture and a Verse – Spring 2022

Day 12, 13, 14 – Thursday, March 31st – Saturday, April 2nd

Gentle little light.
Do you, like the moon, reflect the face of a bright gentle Sun?
That warms the beating breast of every mortal heart?
But then why must you go?
In sickness. In pain.
With the tears of those that love you shimmering in your sunken eyes–
uncomprehending, as one torn from her home?
How may one make sense of the insensible?

No answers echo from the dark chasm
into which we all must bidden fall.

Gentle little light.
I sheltered you in my heart.
May I shelter you yet again at the end of all my days.

The 100 Day Project

The 100 Day Project

The 100 Day Project is a creativity excavation. It’s about unearthing dormant or unrealized creativity by committing to a daily practice everyday for 100 days.
Creativity is a skill. The more we practice, the more skilled we become. Practice takes time. Practice takes commitment. Practice is a radical act in this speeded up world. Through practice, we develop a creative habit. Through habit, we reconnect with and know ourselves again as a creative being.

I started this, my fourth, 100 Day Project on March 20th, 2022. My project is to write at least one first-draft stanza inspired by a poem, a quote, an idea, a painting—anything (or nothing at all) and to post a photograph that I took this spring.
