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.
