It all comes together

For this daybook journal entry we were asked to walk around the building and pick phrases that we seen. The two phrases I found from around the building were "You're not alone" and "Leave your mark". From everyone else's phrases I wrote this poem which seems to be a poem about discovery and exploring the world around you and in the end to be able to leave your mark on others and to come to the realization that no matter where you are, you are not alone.

I thought this was a fun and interesting activity because we were able to come together collectively as a class and all add our own random flavor to the board with this list of phrases, and then individually we could arrange them into our own words while mixing and matching the discoveries of others. I think this is a really good analogy of what happens in reality and how we all learn from each other by what they find out in the world or by what we find out in the world, but ultimately it comes down to our interpretation of how we see it.


  1. I think that this is very interesting concept. It's interesting how the mind can work in parts to create a whole project.

  2. Very interesting... The poem that you was able to come up with is remarkable. I get the feel for why this activity was something you enjoyed doing. It seems that in your poem above, you had a message that you wanted to send out. I don't know what the certain message is, but maybe it involves the fact that everyone should embrace themselves and make a difference in one's life. And to see different random ideas from other people was very different from just coming up with our own ideas. Good blog!


  3. I love how you related the activity back to real life. I didn't think of it that deeply before but I really see the connection you made there.
