WELBEING FOLIO TWO...... Living (ISSN 1530 - 3659)
The second in a series of folios combining word and image, of fine art prints and an essay, from
Wycross Press. The idea is to inquire into the state of well-being, through word and image - mind and
body, so to speak - focusing thought to take stock of this new born century into which we are fast emerging.
How, one might ask, can we find a state of ease with the times in which we live? The dissolution
referred to in the cololphon and the essay, suggested in the prints surely must lead to a consideration of
living the good life.
Jo Taylor’s three page essay, “Living Well,“ examines the good life thru three case studies literally picked
out of the air. Jo lives and works in Puerto Rico as a Research Coordinator for the University of Puerto Rico.
She taught English at Tuskegee University and her love of poetry naturally reveals itself. She references her
study for our further study.
