Thoughts for Maker series structure/curriculum

Lynda Barry starts with a poem as an initial stetting of the stage, often one by Emily Dickinson. I'm trying to think of what poem we might start with?

Also using her book Syllabus to start thinking about what the feel of each class will be. I want to draw up a lesson plan, ie, which will be open to change, etc. but also have a sense of structure to keep us on track in some way.

Gonna add notes for that here, please share any thoughts you have.
