Discovering the Relevance of Words
In its inception, the poetry question was simple: is poetry relevant in the 21st century.
Through our meandering exploration of the written word it has become more… or less, depending on your perception.
Recently, Chris started a segment called “How does so-and-so feel about poetry?” in which he asks celebrities the question via twitter and posts their 140. The responses have been beautiful, fun, funny, creative, insightful and wonderful– especially the words from Jon Favreau (the speechwriter, not the Swinger).
I feel that poetry is everywhere; everything is poetry. Life is poetic if you allow it to be. The world is poetic if you look for it. Seek and ye shall find.
The way you speak, the words you say, the way you move is your poetry.
I not only feel poetry is the most important thing we do, I contend it is all we do.
