Writing/Essay/Journal
This musical piece is a meditation on the butterfly. One theme is introduced and variations are played by each individual. The pattern repeats and is reinterpreted in turn in an effort to reflect on the butterfly’s essence. Pick an object from nature, like a butterfly, or an idea, like love or friendship. Write a variety of pieces that explore your subject: a poem, an essay, a description, a letter to someone, an acrostic poem. Draw, paint, or print images that help to capture the essence. Combine your writings and images on a page on the computer or on tag board. Explain how your collage of images and writings forms a meditation with a single subject revealed in many ways.
