Today, I purchased Lynda Barry's Syllabus: Notes from an Accidental Professor
She writes about neuroscience, cartoons and poetry. And she shows how to be original with
the details of your life.
This morning, I listened to her Presentation at Goucher College. Watch for two minutes as she reads from her illustrated musing on poetry.
"Poems can make you see the world as if
it could be read like poetry.
That is to say, there is a meaning way of looking,
a seeing way that is new~
and something looking back
now alive with you in view
that wants to swallow you."

Why do images exist? "I believe they are the soul's immune system and transit system."
