The biggest impact in Marks life to write poetry began with his middle school English teachers positivity and discipline on a children's book project. Teachers are the BEST!! He recalls how middle school aged kids could be bullies and how this became part of his way to work through childhood stressors.
When a close personal friend passed, his Counselor recommended that he write the story of the day that he passed. How he felt his friend's soul pass through him to say his final goodbye on that day. Some people feel talking helps, he describes how it feels to get it out on paper. To put down on paper the images and conversations from that day to be able to see it physically.
Finding inspiration and mental clarity, for Mark, is from being in nature, going to parks, being with community, writing, and helping others. His favorite method is taking pen to paper to write when he's inspired to create a poem.
Poetry is similar to music in the way it can magically transport us to our deepest core beliefs and values. It touches us in a deeply profound, personal level. It can be an amazing outlet to tap into our vulnerability. Helping us work through our emotions around all sorts of things.
Mark's Poems have an incredibly deep impact that has the ability to wake up that part of you that may have laid dormant for years. It ignites inspiration that touches our mental, spiritual, and emotional well-being. I appreciate the 2 poems that he shared with us on this podcast and look forward to hearing more!
We were also blessed with a nice little show and tell of an incredible German Devotional book that he found in Minnesota from Germany dating back to 1776!
