Zen & the Arts - Field Notes

Jo Pickard

I’m a novelist and short story writer when I’m over there–::points to a couple of spots in the near distance::–but I’m a poet when I’m, for instance, here. I know those arts and crafts aren’t really separated in my life and that they feed one another. But I like to imagine myself seated in different chairs, under different lights, with different winds blowing, and maybe even using different names, to work on them.
