Podcast: Follow-up to the Emily Dickinson Episode. In which we read cards!
Conversations with Erika and Nancy
If you listened to the Emily Dickinson podcast you'll know that we invited listeners to email us their name and we'd draw cards for the Big Question: How can I make a difference in my world and/or the world around me. This week we drew Lenormand and Tarot cards for six people, answering that question.

Erika and Nancy have recently returned from Amherst, Massachusetts, home of the poet Emily Dickinson. Although Emily's life was sheltered and reclusive (at least towards the end of her life) her poems, which few saw, made a difference in thousands of lives. Including the lives of both of us. We discuss how an individual can change the world, and (more importantly) how an individual can change themselves, making a more perfect union between and Self and Others. If you listen to the end you'll find out how to submit your name for a reading next week on "How can I make the world a better place?"

The History of Literature
Because Jacke could not stop for the scheduled episode topics, a certain poem kindly stopped for him. Luckily it's one of the greatest poems of all time! It's by the 19th-century American genius Emily Dickinson, and it packs into seven short stanzas a journey through life, death, and the cosmos.Read a copy of the poem here:Because I could not stop for Death - (479)Additional listening suggestions: 120 Astonishing Emily Dickinson Shakespeare's Greatest Sonnets | Sonnet 29 ("When in disgrace with Fortune and men's eyes") 379 Gwendolyn Brooks Help support the show at patreon.com/literature or historyofliterature.com/shop.

Where do thoughts come from? In episode 69, we turn to a poem from the American Poet Emily Elizabeth Dickinson (Dec. 10, 1830 to May 15, 1886) where she shares her experience of an arising thought. It is a beautiful poem. The poem provides one with the opportunity to become aware of one's thinking mind and it's relationship to one's observing mind. As some are more visual learners than others, here is her untitled creation: A thought went up my mind to-day That I have had before, But did not finish,–some way back, I could not fix the year, Nor where it went, nor why it came The second time to me, Nor definitely what it was, Have I the art to say. But somewhere in my soul, I know I’ve met the thing before; It just reminded me–‘t was all– And came my way no more. -Emily Dickinson At the end of the episode, I have included some bonus material. Something extra from Danielson, a regular Hopeful Humanist Café guest, and the first beat I have ever created called, "Outdoor Playfulness." Both "sharings" utilized free digital audio tools from the online music platform called, "Soundtrap." I hope you enjoy the listening experience.
