WATCH ROBERT BLY 


Watch A MAN WRITES TO A PART OF HIMSELF.



Monday, April 24, 2017

365 FRIENDS is inspired by Ko Un who writes a poem about every single person he has met in his life, and William Stafford who tried to write a poem every day, and Jim Denomie who painted a painting every day during 2005.

Stirred by these models, Mike Hazard has been posting pictures with stories to Facebook.



To begin every morning thinking good thoughts about a person has been proving to be a luminous way to start the day.
