Is full of song
In perfect progression
As we move to the chords of our heart's melodies
On one accord
As if we were one body of instrumentation
A resounding crescendo
“I don’t think about art when I’m working. I try to think about life.”
— – Jean-Michel Basquiat

March 2023 (A REPEAT MESSAGE)
I started to write this long and what I consider profound thought but instead I decided to take this time to speak to my fellow artists and those who support them. Poetry/Spoken Word is evolving, and artists are being more transparent and vulnerable than ever in hopes of sharing their hearts and lived experiences with the world. This level of courage is applaudable but often times taken for granted or merely mistaken for entertainment only. While most artists will make you feel good, the artists that you need are the ones that speak to your soul. The artists that are authentic and a reflection of you.
With that being said, artists KNOW your worth. Understand the value you bring to this crazy world. Do not take it for granted that people enjoy and support your work. Do your due diligence. And art lovers, respect and show appreciation for the craft not only with your words but also with your dollars.
In closing, we have no idea what the world will be like in the near future but what we do know is that art of all kinds has united us and kept us alive. Keep this in mind for all the creatives in your life. Hold fast to their words and allow their gift to be a blessing.
