Journal Box of Jars

Box of Jars is a collection of words, music, art, and ideas. A space that promotes Auden's notion that poetry is 'memorable speech.' We could extend the idea to say that music is memorable sound, and painting is memorable imagery, and so forth. The three basic tenets we want to uphold are: sincerity, integrity, illumination. The work should be deeply felt and deeply considered; the form of each piece should be purposeful; the experience of each piece should linger.
