One Amazing Thing I've Done

I slept on the street in Rome for a night. I couldnt find anywhere to stay, and at first I thought it was a tragedy, and I was ready to begin crying, when I saw a man who sold flowers on the street curl up inside his booth, and I realized that everyone is more resilient than we imagine.

Teach, Learn, Share

The subject about which I know the most, and about which I have the desire to know more, a desire that often makes me feel as though I know nothing, is Poetry, the art of the spoken word, which means the greatest thing I feel that I could share with people is conversation; because Poetry is nothing more than Conversation, and Conversation is nothing less than Poetry.
