I read Auden’s last book, “Thank You, Fog”.  The second poem in there, Aubade (meaning a poem for the dawn or early morning) is a perfect representation of connectivity.  I referenced in my post on http://dayswithoutpirateattack.com/2016/03/18/ripples-out/

“I know that I am and will,
I am willing and knowing,
I will to be and to know,
facing in four directions,
outwards and inwards in Space,
observing and reflecting,
backwards and forwards through Time,
recalling and forecasting.”
– W.H. Auden, Aubade

Two new members have joined my writers’ group (Tuesdays With Story) recently and one is a very good poet, so we have upped our poetry quotient significantly .  More poetry makes me happy!  I found this quote while I was editing the group’s newsletter for this month.

That applies to other creative outlets as well, right?

If you cannot be an artist, be the art.

If you cannot be a dancer, be the dance.

If you cannot be a musician, be the music.

If you cannot be a quilter, be the quilt.

If you cannot be a chef, be the meal.

. . . I could go on. . .
