One Perspective on the Purpose of a Writing Practice
"Poetry, as an art form, is not ornament or escapism. It’s a confrontation with our truths, and this is always transformative." This post strikes me as an ars poetica. And much to consider and mull over, as a poet myself...a means to living deliberately, as Jung suggests..I find that intriguing, and dare I say--hopeful.
Ah, I like this. Great art is something which contains universal truths, because those truths speak to everyone in a different way. And we all live those truths differently but recognise them in a piece of art which speaks directly to us because it contains those truths. I am far less eloquent than you, so it's good to see my primitive thoughts given their full meaning in your reasoned and resounding words.
