The poet is a man who lives at last by watching his moods. An old poet comes at last to watch his moods as narrowly as a cat does a mouse.Underneath the pressures, the push and pull of day-to-day life, there is a vast reservoir of life experience and wisdom. It has insights to offer on the patterns and potentials of our life. Journaling and meditation can help us find our truth--our own individual truth that grows out of our own life journey. A Poet's Moods explores meditation and journaling techniques that can help us better understand the patterns and potential of our lives. We explore tools that enable us to access our inner wisdom and creativity, and the messages our inner world can offer us as we make our way through life.
- Henry David Thoreau in his journal
Artists—poets, novelists, painters, filmmakers, composers—have often used their journals to probe and understand their creative process and inner world. A Poet's Moods includes excerpts from the journals of Beethoven, Whitman, Thoreau, Henry James, Joseph Campbell, Toni Morrison and dozens of others, some obscure, some famous.
