THIS is the question I will take on this year. I always love a challenge, and I found today “the” Bill Gates stating that no one had answered the question satisfactorily. Either it’s my turn to try, or…Bill Gates needs a new reading list. I believe the answer to this question lies in the everyday.
I believe in the power of poetry to change the world—not in the form of large, over-orchestrated, time-consuming, and costly acts, but in the simple act of stopping, slowing down, and being thoughtful and observant in our day-to-day.
We want poetry that brings meaning to our lives, that helps us understand. That everything has meaning, even amid the chaos.
