Saul Williams Poetry Night

Words cannot express how I felt when I got to meet one of my favorite poets. It was such an extraordinary night for me. I was in complete awwww.....just amazed at the fact that it was real. It almost felt like I was dreaming or something. He put on a great show with songs, poems, and of course dialogue. He made a great point in telling everyone to voice their opinions, regardless of what others may think. He said you my not believe 100% of your parents views on things and thats okay. I took that as something I meantioned before being more of you and less of someone else. It seems simply, however it can be very complicated sometimes. In this day and age we have a lot of distractions such as media, social media, workplace, and this capitalistic world we live in. How do we get over all of this...I know the answers will be different for everybody. Im finding for myself right now what is working is writing in my journal. Im trying to do it on a daily basis and look back on my experiences to challenge myself in different ways. I know the main thing for me will be changing careers soon. I know for sure I miss working with people and the community. Thats absolutely something I have to get back to soon. I did ask Saul one question and that was how do I become more creative. He told me to look into this particular artist work. I have to get her book and write a seperate post about how that goes!!!
