Welcome to The Lovely Brains Newsletter! I am Elizabeth Pinborough, a poet, artist, and brain injury survivor.
I believe that every brain is lovely and that every brain matters, whether healthy, injured, neurodiverse, or neurotypical. Brain injury creates a neurodiversity frame of reference, and I write with that continually developing frame.
Having a brain injury means doing a lot of online research to figure out what the heck happened and how to fix it. It also brings a ton of creative attempts to reimagine the self and the world. Poetry, art, photography are some of my native languages, and they have been indispensable tools in my neurorecovery.
Where art, neuroscience, spirituality, and the self collide, that is where The Lovely Brains Newsletter is born.
