Over at my “blog buddy” Bill’s blog: http://www.kenosis23.wordpress.com
he has several art postings for which he has provided his artistic interpretation. Interestingly enough, I look at the same pictures and get completely different, almost “polar” reactions. So, that got me thinking…
Where is “my peaceful meditation” place?
I’m not really sure where my place is, but I do know that certain scenes from nature give me certain reactions.
I created a powerpoint for my students to use last year — as a way to inspire reactions and hence, create poetry. They were assigned to watch the slideshow, take notes, then choose one (or two) slides and write a poem about it. The results were amazing. I don’t know what it is about nature scenes, but it’s a great way to tap into our creativity.
I wish I could post that powerpoint here, but I’m clueless. I have something sitting in my gallery, but no clue how to get that on this blog. Oh well!
