Some prescient posts on nurturing your own creative self:
Lisa Romeo on
Project-Based Homeschooling for Grownups.
Books I'm reading for my project on mother-nature writers:
Kathleen Dean Moore, Riverwalking: Reflections on Moving Water and Holdfast: At Home in the Natural World
Lia Purpura, Increase
Pattiann Rogers, The Dream of the Marsh Wren: Writing as Reciprocal Creation
Louise Erdrich, The Blue Jay's Dance: A Birth Year
And, totally not related to my project or grad school in any way, Alison Bechdel's Are You My Mother?:A Comic Drama. I picked it up at the library yesterday on my way home from work and read half of it in the bathtub last night (my kids make fun of me for reading in the tub, but really I can't think of a more pleasant place to read, except maybe in a hammock on a warm, sunny, bug-free day). Complicated and fascinating (Virginia Woolf & Donald Winnicott). It makes me grateful I had a boring/normal childhood and also makes me wish I could draw. Read Fun Home first, if you haven't.
What inspires you these days?
