The Extraordinary in the Ordinary
"I've never thought of it that way before." Something I hear quite often after I've shared poems or given a talk about writing. And that's what writing is supposed to do--make you look at the things you see every day in a new and different way, a way that brings you closer to inspiration and solutions, or helps you to better appreciate your own gifts.
That's why I love sharing poetry at my buddy Oriel Ceballos' pop-up art exhibition at Daddy Green's Pizza in Bed Stuy. Oriel is an amazing artist, and by curating this local Brooklyn event, I get to meet a new group of emerging art lovers and artists every month.
This is the way we build bridges and get a fresh burst of inspiration--getting out and meeting new people, sharing ideas, and stepping out of our comfort zones. It's a synergy that can only happen when you actively engage in the moment.
May you find something extraordinary in the ordinary, and may it propel you to new creative breakthroughs.
