W is for Wine 

Since it is the end of the semester, I’ve been thinking about wine. Especially since it seems to be a tradition here at TC that on the last day of classes we usually drink lots of wine. This makes me wonder why do we drink wine in certain social situations versus others? From celebrations to …

W is for Walking 

Now that the weather's finally warmer and it's light out for longer, I've been taking more walks in the local parks, most commonly Riverside, Morningside, or Central. After a long day, it's a nice way to decompress. It's also a great means of mind-body connection; if I have a big issue to mull over, I'll often have …

W is for Within 

W is for WITHIN Curious how reading something can begin to alter your vision. Just reading about lines gets me thinking about WITHIN-- energies vibrations and what you radiate outwards. I have read about (Dwyer) putting + energy out in the universe, to dwell on what you want to manifest. In WITHIN, he posits that …

W is for Why do I have to learn this? 

The method of equality was above all a method of the will. One could learn by oneself and without a master explicator when one wanted to, propelled by one's own desire or by the constraint of the situation.”                                        The Ignorant Schoolmaster Rancière's pedagogy envisions the creation of emancipated individuals who are liberated …

W is for Waking 

W is for Waking 1. I wake up every morning with the sunrise and start the day with a sun salutation followed by a half-hour of meditation. I eat a wholesome breakfast sitting at an actual dining room table, drinking actual coffee, and actually reading the New York Time’s international section (and not just the …

W is for Welsh, Steve 

1. It’s always a little daunting commodifying oneself and one’s interests, so why don’t I try to present myself through a few different lenses… 2. But can speech ever be truly devoid of meaning? 3. @SungMejiafvj hey are you a bot? 4. Some of these institutions are private, some public, some centralized, some nebulous. 5. …

W is for World Trade Center 

I wrote this poem shortly after 9/11 for a workshop in my Masters in Creative Writing program at NYU. The year before, I had attended a three day conference in Tower 1 and on another occasion gone to a wine tasting at Windows on the World. I was haunted by so many vignettes of memory …

W is for Walking 

Subsequent to parking in the Village last night, my cousin and I walked nearly a mile to reach the restaurant “Dallas BBQ.” The former purposefully parked from this distance because he says that he desired to have “a good walk in the city”; I retorted, “You just wanted to park far away so you could …

W is for Walking (backwards) 

"...moving quickly, trying to get through the crowd to catch the bus. You have two blocks to navigate, and the crowd makes it difficult. You weave through the people, taking bigger and smaller steps, looking for holes and then filling them, inhabiting them momentarily before they close". Yet, "Walking 'alone' does not exist. Walking in/with the …

W is for Writing 

One of the major claims Rousseau makes concerning human nature in Emile is that human beings have a tendency to live safely. Parents instinctively have the urge to preserve their children through constant care and overprotection. In doing so, children are not living their lives to the fullest. What parents and educators must do is …

W is for Woodcut 

Last night I was reading Artforum...which I have to get sent to my parents house because it's so big they refuse to deliver it to my tiny mailbox. but anyway. I was reading the obituary for Arthur C. Danto by Daniel Birnbaum, where I was immediately drawn in by Birnbaum reflecting on the first time …

W is for World 

Every time I watch students’ performances in the auditorium, I am always proud of their achievement and creativity. Besides that, their performances continually brought me touching moments. A group of kindergarteners sang the song “The World Is a Rainbow in a student choir. While they were singing, they were doing sign languages accompanied with the …

W is for Walter Benjamin 

On the first day of class, I brought up Walter Benjamin’s essay “On Some Motifs in Baudelaire,” which is a lot about aesthetic experiences (and the loss thereof). In the introduction to Performing Live, Shusterman brings up Benjamin, too. I checked the citations in the back of the book, and it looks like he’s referencing …

W is for Whitman 

As I was thinking about aesthetic experiences this week I was reminded of this Walt Whitman poem called Poets to Come. The poem, being that it’s a poem, is in itself art but it is also addressing the nature of art. It brings up the notion that the artist is only really half the story. …

W is for Winter 

At this point in what has been a very long, very snowy winter, I’m sure I’m not alone in hoping that Spring, and its warmer weather, arrives soon. Tomorrow would even be preferable. But, as the forecast seems to be eluding that prospect as far as I can tell, I thought it might be helpful …
