One of the most fascinating phenomena about our existence is the ability to transmit our emotions via the medium of writing and those who come in contact with text can actually relate with the writer on so many levels. This goes to reinforce the power of communing as described by Pierre Teillard de Chardin "There is almost a sensual longing for communion with others who have a large vision. The immense fulfillment of the friendship between those engaged in furthering the evolution of consciousness has a quality impossible to describe."
On this episode of the word café we will be sharing the space with Orlando Taylor, who has come to embrace the power of communing via the art of writing.
Orlando Taylor was born in St. Louis, MO., growing up, he was fascinated with writing, science, reading, and this interest led to some early exposure to reading comic books, poetry, literature. Later, Orlando developed a passion for ideas that could be transformed into scripts for TV and film. In My Scars Are My Birthmark, Orlando explores the issues one might face in life and those common to the African American community.
These are the loves, relationships, and the fight to have a life of meaning in a country that wants to erase you. He writes in the hopes of informing his readers about black-experience like James Baldwin or Richard Wright and examines how these experiences collide as Octavia E. Butler.
He has been featured in several anthologies of poetry. He can also be reached on the website www.kuumbaconcepts.com - firstname.lastname@example.orgSupport the show
