Mobile Photography & Art – Tickle Your Fancy #63

Share

Welcome back to our sixty third post in our Tickle Your Fancy section. Tickle Your Fancy includes a round-up of between ten to twelve key links to articles from around TheAppWhisperer over the past few two weeks, ones you may, by chance, have missed.

Just to explain the title for this section Tickle Your Fancy is an English idiom and essentially means that something appeals to you and perhaps stimulates your imagination in an enthusiastic way, we felt it would make a great title for this new section of the site.

Artists cited include: Rachael Short, Barbara Braman, Amy Ecenbarger, Becky Menzies, Sarah Bichachi, Fleur Schim, Eliza Badoiu, Marco Prado, Sukru Mehmet Omur, Anca Balaj, Jerry Jobe,  Jane Schultz, Armineh Hovanesian, Kate Zari Roberts, Vicki Cooper, Peter Wilkin.

TheAppWhisperer Triumphs! Another Very Touching Testimonial!

Share

Sometimes in our daily work, we receive the most beautiful testimonials, so many in fact, that I am going to make a point of publishing and linking to previous ones, as each and every one, means so much to us and drives us on.

This weekend, following the publication of Sarah Bichachi’s intimate interview and further, her imagery within our Saturday Poetry section, we received a wonderful donation, but not only that, we received these touching words and with permission, we are so pleased to share them with you today…thank you Sarah!

Mobile Photography & Art Saturday Poetry – ‘Instrument’ by Dao Strom with Sarah Bichachi

Share

This weeks Saturday Poetry, matched with mobile photography/art is entitled ‘Instrument’. “I wrote this poem at the end of 2016. In the wake of the election, the phrase ‘burning-est woken of time’ spoke to a sense of urgency and self-questioning as to what kind of ‘instrument’ I would wish to be, and how. I remember there were a lot of words in the air at the time, rhetoric zinging back and forth on how to fight, resist, right and wrong ways to be, etc.—and maybe in response a part of me was craving a quieter version of myself, to be a conduit and hold channels open without falling prey to (or simply reflecting back) the anxieties around me/us. Playing with ‘-ist’ and ‘-est,’ and the placement of stanzas were further ways for me to contemplate sound and the extremities of language, as well as the slippery ease with which we create hierarchies of meaning by how we configure words” explained Dao Strom.

Dao Strom is the author of several books, including the bilingual poetry/art book, You Will Always Be Someone From Somewhere Else, (AJAR Press, 2018) and a hybrid-form memoir We Were Meant To Be a Gentle People, accompanied by a song-cycle, East/West (Press Otherwise, 2015). She is the editor of diaCRITICS and lives in Portland, Oregon.
