and day 2
I changed my mind about posting the NaPoWriMo Days one and two prompts together, but I forgot to change the title of the post. So here is the Day 2 prompt from Chris Jarmick.
Compassion, empathy, sympathy. What do the words mean to you?
What is the root meaning of those words? Perhaps watch a couple of YouTube videos about the subject. (suggestion Paul Ekman: The Roots of Empathy and Compassion under 5 minutes, Dacher Keltner Ted Talk on the biological and evolutionary origins of human emotion, with a special concentration on compassion 18 minutes plus, Joan Halifax: Compassion and the true meaning of empathy 13 minutes plus , Daniel Goleman – Leadership and Compassion – Empathy and Compassion in Society 2013 14 minutes plus.
What poem wants to blossom now that you’ve thought of these words or done a little research or watched a YouTube or two about these words? Write that poem however it wants or needs to be written.
Minus the links apparently, no matter, here is my response:
there is just so much information in these videos, its going to take some time to process it all before it works its way into my writing
so I may follow up on this prompt from time to time as NaPoWriMo progresses
