Afaa Micahel Weaver shares his reflections on Haiti's earthquake and aftermath at Radio Open Source.
Was missing Lucille Clifton today. On my ride into work today I played the Poetry Foundation's interview with her from 2007 when she won the Ruth Lilly prize. If you really want a sense of who she was--in her own words--listen to this podcast.
I'm paraphrasing, but in the interview she says that when her first book came out, she had six kids under the age of 8. Gives me hope as a parent that I can do what my heart leads me to do and still raise a happy family. Thank you, Lucille.
Happy St. Patty's Day, everyone!
