    bronze

    Love is the bronze tough enough to preserve us. A lovely thought - but in whose heart? That is the great and heavy question we all bear. As for Donnie Darko - one must be in the right frame of mind to grasp it. Even then, it's obscure, grim and a little manic. But I rather like the idea that we each have portals to guide us through time, connecting us, fulfilling our purpose in whatever form that is, life or death. Thank you for sharing these two sonnets with us. I am moved by both.

    An Open Letter to Alzheimer's

    I'm sure there are plenty of online platforms where this could be / should be shared.
  6. Haha, I hope you told him it'll be on the next test.
  7. A very strong and evocative Tanka, my friend. There is a melancholic tone of time passing, yet it's a fitting perspective of life and our place in the universe. We are but miniscule in the larger picture of existence.

    An Open Letter to Alzheimer's

    I was late in the game to see that you'd posted a new blog, molly. For some reason, I still don't receive notifications when you post, even though I'm signed up to. At any rate, this new post is powerful and informative. I have not personally had experience dealing with Alzheimer's (knock on wood) however my cousin (distant relative) recently passed from it and he was only 58. I know that it's a silent beast that affects many people - both directly and indirectly. After my cousin's passing, although I hadn't been in touch with him for over 35 years, I made a donation to the Alzheimer's Association. It seemed like the least I could do, a small way to honor him as family, and a way to keep research and education going. Thanks for putting your heart and soul into this topic and for finding the courage to share it with us. you might consider sharing it around other places, too, not just GA. It's something everyone should read.

    Unfit for Consumption

    No hugs from here. Just silence, knots and a few reminders. xo
  10. After hearing this song at the end of God's Own Country a while back, I knew I needed to find out more about this musician. He is gifted in both songwriting and performance, melancholic and poetic, an unexpected treasure I was unaware of before.

  12. "The Secret to Creativity – According to Science"

    An interesting read. I think I fall into the "episodic imagination" category.

      Wow, that is very interesting, Sir!  I loved this: Learn the rules like a pro, so you can break them like an artist.

       

      And well the final line too, that's something special!.  Really interesting stuff.

      thank you for sharing this Sir

      i especially liked the part that mentioned that exposure and experience were important in being creative.  i saw this in the poem prompt from AC.  He said that practice and repetition made it easier.

       

       "...research suggests that the first requirement is actually exposure and experience. The longer you have worked and thought in a field and learned about a matter – and importantly, dared to make many mistakes – the better you are at intuitively coming up with ideas and analytically selecting the right one."

       

      i've forwarded it to Daughter as i think she'll appreciate it also

      I liked that about the article, too, molly. Seems to me that exposure and experience are the essence of life.

  13. good morning Sir

    Slaying Dragons

    The sentiment goes both ways, sean. I'm late in responding to your comment, but the sentiment in this poem remains strong. Lean on me, boy, we'll slay the dragons together.
