Poem Types: A List of Poetry Forms | Poetry Styles | Poetry Types One thing I really appreciate about poetry is that there are a vast array of poetry styles and poetry forms available to poets.

Learn to Draw - The basic elements in drawing Let's get a bit more in depth with the elements of drawing. The rest of this website will get even further into each of these elements. Line is the most basic element of the drawing. And in it's most basic definition, it's what separates one area of the drawing plane from the other. A single line will segment your piece of paper into "that area" and "this area". The more lines that are added, the more complex and numerous the separations become: light from dark, foreground from background, positive space from negative space. I'm not saying we won't be drawing lines because they don't exist in the real world. Shape occurs when the first line is drawn. Proportion and Perspective. Light and Shadow create depth and atmosphere in a drawing. The whole drawing.

untitled Three Techniques for Quieting Your Mind Three Techniques for Quieting Your Mind Courtesy of Andrea A mere week ago, I was telling a client that I thought it was impossible to completely stop ourselves from thinking. I subsequently received some guidance that actually had me prove myself completely wrong! Here are three of my newly discovered techniques for creating a quiet, peaceful, empty mind: 1.

Instead of looking after them or watching them float away, focus on the empty space that is now in your hand. 3. Has your mind ever insisted on a particular stream of thought on and on, keeping you from sleep?

[back to the top] The Myers-Briggs system is a personality system developed by a mother and daughter team, Katharine Briggs and Isabel Myers, to help us better understand our innate personality differences. There are three terms that you will need to become familiar with in this system if you want to understand it better. Myers-Briggs lists four pairs of opposite preferences. (1) Extraverting (E) versus Introverting (I) Where we prefer to focus our attention and what energizes us (2) Sensing (S) versus iNtuiting (N) How we prefer to take in information (3) Thinking (T) versus Feeling (F) How we evaluate information and make decisions (4) Judging (J) versus Perceiving (P) What lifestyle we prefer Click on List of Keywords for Each Preference if you want to understand what each of these preferences means.
