The C2S blog draws on the arts, the social and biological sciences to explore the many meanings of health and "dis-ease." Designed to be a locus where patients, their families and professionals can meet on a level playing field, it is the natural off-shoot of the Cell 2 Soul Online Journal. We encourage the submission of ideas, essays, poems, stories, humor, and timely reviews relating to the humanities and health care.
The great haiku master, Matsuo Basho (1644 - 1694) wrote, "The bones of haiku are plaineness and oddness." Little has changed.
For National Poetry Month, The New York Times asked readers to write haiku about the City. The response — more than 2,800 submissions in 10 days — was as impressive. NYC in 17 Syllables is an inspirational and optimistic selection that crowdsources the talents of uncommon, common people.
