I write one page at a time, with only one to five words per line. The structure can look like poetry but has more to do with the physical limitations of a handwritten page and my desire to emphasize multiple meanings. My Page poems are a combination of sketch pad and journal.
The history and method of my writing process can be found in my article How I Wrote Three Thousand Pages Without Trying
"If you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough." Albert Einstein
"The obvious is that which is never seen until someone expresses it simply." Kahlil Gibran
“Simplicity, carried to an extreme, becomes elegance.” Jon Franklin
I like to limit my writings to one page with one idea, but my favorite achievement is to distill short meaningful sayings. I have selected a few quotes from my 2014 volumes for you to savor here. Try having three or four breaths between reading each quote to contemplate and expand the meaning to yourself.
