it's a strange world when we come to uncover increasingly more lessons. we come to find that even random concepts, events, and themes have correlation. I am writing to ask a simple question:

- take 3 items, at random, and write something about their potential connection.

this is, perhaps, an exercise in creative writing and degrees of separation, but it could also supply as a cathartic exercise, bringing the subconscious to the fore and quick-paced irrelevancy of the world to hindsight for a few moments.

I am not a teacher and this is certainly not a lesson plan. but ... here goes.
my three randoms are: physics, a Poem by Ezra Pound, and the Color Wheel: how are they connected?


Physics: Sir Isaac Newton and the universal law of gravitational force, like in Pound's poem ... has weight that is exerted upon a mass ... this mass has given the following spectator roots and grounds him or her in observation. funny, simple observation is what lead to the discovery of gravity itself.

A Girl

The tree has entered my hands,
The sap has ascended my arms,
The tree has grown in my breast -
The branches grow out of me, like arms.

Tree you are,
Moss you are,
You are violets with wind above them.
A child - so high - you are,
And all this is folly to the world.


color theory:

" A color circle, based on red, yellow and blue, is traditional in the field of art. Sir Isaac Newton developed the first circular diagram of colors in 1666. Since then scientists and artists have studied and designed numerous variations of this concept. Differences of opinion about the validity of one format over another continue to provoke debate. In reality, any color circle or color wheel which presents a logically arranged sequence of pure hues has merit. "

overall, I did not know that the color wheel and the gravitas found in a random poem by a random poet were interrelated. but, like many things in life ... what is not keen to the naked percept does not mean that there is an absence of connection.
