My guess is, a lot is lost. Even though that myopic specialization can be beautiful too

I certainly do. I guess that’s normal... I love the competition of slam, how it elevates talent the same way sports does. But it Makes me think about specialization for better and worse. Like when a kid is good at basketball and quits every other sport. What is lost?

I remember that ❤️ and I do miss it. It was so cool to go up right after a emcee and just before a storyteller at Word for Word. And I loved even crashing open mics that were clearly geared to musicians and doing a couple poems...

Problems w this: 1) assumes all schools have access to PPE which isn’t true & doesn’t fully acknowledge issue that poses. She says that has to change. How?? 2) Patients come already ill. School can spread virus. Kids and/or their families could die

Hmm... that’s interesting! I came up in open mic culture which is lighter on the “rules,” esp with music. Ive always looked forward to a beat, a guitar, something sonic to set mood... but is there something cool about the poet having nothing up there but a voice?

I just saw this and sent it to my dad, knowing we both love civil war history. He said “I remember that episode, I was 9 years old.” That puts the civil war less than 3 lifespans ago... it’s good to reflect on just how recent even the “old” things are.
