Erase again, and then
A poppy blooms.

On this weekend of creative writing we will try lightly to override the habits of our mind to judge, criticise, control, overthink and abstract, so that we may write from a zone of presence, openness and free association. Expect to write short pieces, including haiku, and to move, draw and eat.

No skill or experience is needed. Just curiosity and playfulness. Skill and experience are welcome though.
