Parenting As a parent to a 2.5 year old daughter (as of late 2018...) the concept of both being a parent and parenting are ever present and important for me: Key links: Digital Art & Creativity Creativity generally fascinates me, obviously, but the idea of digital creativity and digital art in particular is a thread I end up pulling on again and again.

    Poetry

    >But the sea which no one tends is also a garden [Asphodel, That Greeny Flower by William Carlos Williams](http://www.poets.org/poetsorg/poem/asphodel-greeny-flower-excerpt) -- >First, The fish needs to say, “Something ain’t right about this Camel ride – And I’m Feeling so damn Thirsty.” Hafiz -- >And we all say: OH! Well I never! Was there ever A Cat so clever As Magical Mr. Mistoffelees! [Mr Mistophelees by TS Eliot](http://famouspoetsandpoems.com/poets/t__s__eliot/poems/15147) -- >So the darkness shall be the light, and the stillness the dancing. Whisper of running streams, and winter lightning. [The Four Quartets by TS Eliot](http://www.coldbacon.com/poems/fq.html) -- >In the summer I stretch out on the shore And think of you Had I told the sea What I felt for you, It would have left its shores, Its shells, Its fish, And followed me. Nizar Qabbani -- >But after a time allowed for it to swim, Instead of proving human when it neared And someone else additional to him, As a great buck it powerfully appeared, Pushing the crumpled water up ahead, And landed pouring like a waterfall, And stumbled through the rocks with horny tread, And forced the underbrush--and that was all. [The Most of It by Robert Frost](http://genius.com/Robert-frost-the-most-of-it-annotated) -- >We are, I am, you are by cowardice or courage the one who find our way back to this scene carrying a knife, a camera a book of myths in which our names do not appear. [Diving into the wreck by Adrienne Rich](http://www.poets.org/poetsorg/poem/diving-wreck) Inspired by http://brendanschlagel.com/canon/
