I have spent a bit of time over the weekend, pondering the poem, the book and my response. My forays have all been very tentative so far, a little drawing here; some jotted notes there; a scanned image in the corner.
Some thoughts are gelling, but I am conscious there are so many things to consider - the words, how to respond, the layout, the format, the binding - that I sense it's going to be a case of just dive in, start something and then the rest may follow. If not, I might freeze and not take off at all!
Here's a shot of one corner of my studio (messy as ever) - with some key words from the poem stuck to one of the shelves to remind me and help me think about my response. I think I am hoping this approach might mean the words and response enter my mind subliminally.
