"Blue Mind is a fascinating study of the emotional, behavioral, psychological and physical connections that keep humans so enchanted with water... Nichols draws on science and art, hard data and anecdote, and plenty of experience, to explain our blue mind in detail."
- Washington Post Book Review
"Blue Mind: Creative Work, Critical Play" was a Guilford College 2017 Interdisciplinary Senior Capstone, a class comprised of religious studies, creative writing, photography, environmental studies, and many more majors that brought their unique perspective to discussions.
As a junior, I documented the participants of the class as they explored many environments and readings. This included trips to the Haw River, Carolina Beach, Lake Brandt and the Guilford College Woods.
