brand new.

in an effort to get over this terrible creative block, i'm cannibalizing facebook's 30 day song challenge here on my bloggy blog.

typically poetry gets me out of a creative funk, but i'm so stuck that not even the inspired words of spenser, donne, yeats, and heaney can help me.  so, i turn to music in the hopes that i will find inspiration.

day one:  your favorite song:  "transformation" written and performed by david gray

why? it's beautiful, haunting, and leaves so much up to the imagination.  i routinely use this song in my classroom to show my students how many different valid interpretations of a text there can be.  i find comfort, loveliness, and profound emotion in this song, simple as it is.
