Sustaining the inner poet

Wednesday, March 6, 2013 by EMILY THIEL Special to The Press in Focus

Marilyn Hazelton taps into creative roots at FloreAnt Projects Gallery workshops

All art forms have a poetry expressed by the artist and the work they create.

With "Sustaining the Soul Through Creative Discovery," Marilyn Hazelton offers inspiration to allow one to tap into his or her creative self by writing poetry.

In a series of four workshops at FloreAnt Projects Gallery, 215 Main St., Emmaus, Hazelton guides participants through a background of poetic Japanese art forms, and as a communal group, participants work together to discover and harness their inspiration.

Another indicator of spring, with longer days to come, is Daylight Saving Time. This year, Daylight Saving Time begins 2 a.m. March 10; the time to "spring ahead" by turning the clocks forward one hour is here! Warmer and longer days are on the horizon.
