Happy Poetry Friday!
I’ve been participating in Laura Shovan’s 9th Annual February Poetry Project, where we write a poem a day during February. This year our poem prompt focus is the body. My Poem-Drawing here is from a prompt this week that Rebecca Brock offered us, we were to reflect on our brains. We were also given two articles to read. I gathered source material from this article: Neuroscientist Explains Secrets of the Creative Brain. I was very taken with this article especially the end of it that focuses on Five Secrets of the Creative Brain, and artists that fall into the Polymath area. Any information that I find that speaks to artists that work across spectrums–in different mediums, and different areas of the arts holds a special place for me. Dividing one’s time between areas is not always an easy task–throw in having to work, family, and you often have quite an interesting dilemma… Reinforcing articles like this one, help me to keep my balancing act in the air.
I found an interesting article on Poet-Artists by the Getty Museum, and William Blake is included in this article.
