The Gardner Museum presents - Reflections on Spectacle Pond
Thursday, September 29, 2022
Inspired by Zen poets, landscape painting from China and Japan, and Thoreau’s Walden, author and thought leader George Kinder has spent the last 30 years finding creative inspiration from the solitude of living on the edge of a New England pond. Attuned to nature’s teachings, Kinder recorded its seasonal changes through poetry and photography that culminated in his latest book, Reflections on Spectacle Pond. He’s offering the book free to everyone through an email subscription that weekly presents a curated selection of his poems and photography reflecting the upcoming week. In this event, he offers an intimate window into his creative process with a poetry reading, photography slideshow, and discussion about meditation, nature, and inspiration.
