In the first of a series of conversations I am planning to have in the Bay Area, I had a great chat with a local poet Maryam Khawar.
We discussed some of her short poetry, where she is inspired, why art is important in our lives, and how to become GREAT at anything.
Here is a very short poem of hers we discussed:
How beautiful, was your mind
and the ability to see the essence of the universe
I see it through you
As you pass from artist to artist
We also read the poem "The Apology" by Ralph Waldo Emerson.
