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.
