hope, violence, infertility, poetry, legacy

-- Quote of the Day --

“It’s not enough merely to exist. It’s not enough to say, ‘I’m earning enough to live and support my family. I do my work well. I am a good father. I’m a good husband. I’m a good churchgoer.’ That’s all very well, but you must do something more. Seek always to do some good somewhere. …even if it’s a little thing, do something for those who have need of a man’s help, something for which you get no pay but the privilege of doing it.”
~ Albert Schwitzer

-- Conscious Discussions --

- Today: Jan 6 - Hope, Violence & Environment with Poetry - Joan Gelfand was our featured guest of the day - Her work has been published in over 50 national and regional publications. She currently works as an arts administrator, organizing panels and readings at colleges and writer’s conferences around the Bay Area of California (USA). She has authored 2 published books of poetry. We discussed writing poetry for one's self as opposed to writing for an audience, the differences between song lyric writing and poetry, managing speaking events and much more. Today's guest passed along a few resources for our audience including a poetry publication (www.strangeroad.com) and a writer's organization (www.wnba-book.org) that has branches in India, USA and Canada among other regions.
