Here I am with my pride and joy, a great big model of an anatomical heart (it even opens up so you can look at the chambers and valves).
This week in the creative writing class I am taking, I am one of the people assigned to bring "show & tell", usually in the form of one or more objects and a piece of writing. I have been working hard at pulling together the words and pictures that will accompany this object for my presentation.
Personally, the heart is a potent basis for poetic and symbolic thinking whether in art or writing.
Looking around at everything going on in the world today, I find myself wondering how different the world would be if all of us approached our fellow humans (and other life forms) with open hearts, not hardened ones.
What am I doing with this jumbo anatomical heart?
As a visual artist I like nothing more than getting up to my elbows in paint or little plastic toys, or wading in at the deep end in pursuit of an idea. When I am not teaching others in a similar vein, you can find me researching, writing and noodling around in my studio, seeing where my latest lines of inquiry lead me.
