More and more, I am looking for new ways to tell my story, to expand the life and work of the new writer, to change without lament or struggle stories. It is a creative challenge, and I accept it. This morning I wrote a poem called "Act Great" and I got a very strong response to it, and at breakfast Maria suggested I do a video poem. What do you mean?, I asked, and then I got it. Why not fuse the poem with visual images, as I did with "The Story Of Rose." Why not try something different, something new use my voice as well as my photographs and words and video. So I read the poem over moving images I took this morning.
This is a powerful thing for me, an exciting new thing to try. I have more work to do selecting images to more closely match the words, but I began the experiment this morning. Come and see my first video poem. "Act Great." Thanks Maria. Only an artist who understood me would think of this. You are my shining star.
