dunnefrankowski:

Since the start of the year, I’ve been really taken by the idea of having something green on my worktable. It goes without saying that I spend a lot of time there, but when you’re focused on the screen (as my work calls me to be) it’s easy to lose touch with the space itself, to allow it to fall from view. Nothing wrong with that, as such— it’s a function of focus. But it’d be good to see some mark of time passing other than the accumulation of dust I counter with the occasional wipe down of surfaces. Something like the lighting system above: serves concrete purpose (lighting), but also marks the passing of time. To be able to say In the time I’ve been here, something has grown, something has come into being— could serve as a powerful reminder of actuality, the passage of time, and presence. A complement or even antithesis to the memento mori skull on the desk of old; rather than a reminder of inevitable death, a reminder that you have lived. I’m also currently looking into window farms and table gardens. I’d love to track a lighting/hydroponic system like this down…

“I believe that the most complex and profound truths are usually arrived at when we allow our imaginations to interact with factual truths. I also believe that facts can lie. So—many of my poems are fictional at least in part. Poetry is not autobiography, not journalism, not textbook history. I understand poetry as an imaginative art, and at this point in my life, I value the power of the imagination as much—or more—than I value any set of facts.”

Two things I love? Tech and poetry. Looks like I’ll be soft-starting my "talk tech" sessions for poets and creatives this month after all.
