DESCRIPTION OF HOW IT FEELS WHEN WRITING POETRY GOES WELL “Youre right in the work, youlose your sense of time, youre completely enraptured, youre completely caught up in what youre doing…. theres no future or past, its just an extended present in which youre making meaning…” Poet Mark Strand, 1991
DESCRIPTION OF HOW IT FEELS WHEN DOING RESEARCH GOES WELL “To go into a dark room and look through the microscope and see these glowing objects which may be moving around or may be stationary, and in different colors – its a video game, if you will. Its just beautiful…I can sit in front of a microscope for three or four Cell biologist hours at a time, just looking at theJoseph G. Gall (1991) material and analyzing it….I can be very disconcerting to other people in the degree to which I can concentrate on something and not pay too much attention to whats going on around me.”
