We Learn to Swim in Winter is a Masterful Literary Work


Richmond, Ind. (PRWEB) December 11, 2013

The renowned philosopher and psychologist William James believed that one learns by incorporating bodily knowledge, the way one recalls how to swim in winter. One recalls by muscle memory. One adapts and form habits from ones daily experiences. This insight helps shape Paul Lacey’s new poetry book, “We Learn to Swim in Winter.

Poetry invites one to look closely as a visual artist sees things, paying respectful attention to people, animals and nature. It teaches one to see well, to meditate on and celebrate what one sees. We Learn to Swim in Winter gives voice to memories of family and friends who enrich the inner meanings of ones life. They are present in everyones lives and draw out emotions of — joy, laughter, the pleasure of companionship and the truth of grief. Here are poems closely observing war remnants in Vietnam, homeless people in freezing weather, a prisoner in prolonged solitary confinement, recording participation in political demonstrations. Telling the truth about those lives is an ethical responsibility.

His poem Winter Postcard reads:

Georgia O’Keeffe talking about her life and work

O’keeffe , at her home in New Mexico in 1977 . She was nearly 90 at the time.

Georgia O'Keeffe Abstraction at the Whitney

James Kalm partakes in the press preview for this icon of American Modernism. Over twenty years in the making, this exhibition surveys the lesser known but perhaps more profound side of OKeeffes work, her abstraction. Beginning with her discovery and eventual relationship with Alfred Stieglitz in 1916, OKeeffe was thrust in to the stratosphere of the New York art scene. She was at the forefront of pursuing a type of organic abstraction that Stieglitz championed as Americas contribution to Modernism. Examples of OKeeffes paintings covering nearly fifty years of development are on view. Includes brief statements by Director Adam D. Weinberg, and the curatorial team lead by Barbara Haskell, Barbara Buhler Lynes and Sasha Nicholas.
