aMUSEing: Poetress

So here's a short list of things that I love:

1. TED talks
2. smart friends who share cool things with me

Below is a talk given by a 22 year old spoken word poet/teacher/business director.
There are many reasons for why she is inspiring, but the one I'd like to focus on right now is the point she makes mid-way through her talk where she begins to explain why she writes. In essence, Sarah Kay confesses that she writes in order to make sense of things that she doesn't understand, and that the process of writing sometimes leads her to realize an answer, and sometimes it doesn't.

Life, writing, practicing yoga, making's all a process of creation! Whether the results reveal the vision or spark still more exploration, it is a necessary and often cathartic expression.
Check out her awe-some talk:
