I remember now that poetry is why I wake up and why I bother with anything at all. I went to my first poetry workshop in years this morning and I forgot how alive and in love it makes me feel. I wish that every day - or at least every other day - I could feel that way. Talking about it, reading it, writing it, living it...this is what I want to do and I need to get back to it.
Poetry is life distilled. ~Gwendolyn Brooks
