What a great class! The MOS staff was super generous with their time, advice and support. For many of us it was the first time inside the Hayden Planetarium and almost everyone was able to read aloud their assigned poem. The poems were beautiful and thought-provoking. The ideas are really starting to flow. Mood Boards on their way for next week! I encourage everyone to post your poems here if you are brave enough. And please share any thoughts, observations, questions that will come up in the days ahead.
