Kindred Spirit – Amy Lowell

Standard

“Art is the desire of a man to express himself, to record the reactions of his personality to the world he lives in.”

Amy Lowell

Amy Lowell is a kindred spirit.  She was born in 1874, into a well-known and respectable family.  She had two brothers:  Percival Lowell, who became a prominent astronomer, and Abbott Lawrence Lowell, who ended up as a Harvard president.  College was a forbidden fruit – no place for a woman.  Not to be thwarted, she turned to books.  In fact, she was an obsessive book collector; hence a kindred spirit.  Can you imagine what she would do

Conformity & Creativity

with a Kobo, Kindle etc?  Amy Lowell’s life is amazing, full of creativity, poetry and inspiration.  What better quote to start my photo blog.  Just this once – I have modified the pronouns.

Art is the desire of a woman to express herself, to record the reactions of her personality to the world she lives in!
