Slam poetry – of the inspirational type!
I never though poetry reading would be fun, even less inspirational. Well, Taylor Mali entered my browser to disprove me 😉 I was amazed at his skill — not only to come up with the poems, but at his passion in the way he delivers them. I warmly recommend you a dose of slam poetry — it’ll make your day (or night) beautiful.
I definitely recommend What Teachers Make because of the power of delivery and inspirational message, but I also loved The The Impotence of Proofreading, Reading Allowed, Totally like whatever, you know? and For The Life of Me.
Maybe listening to Mali will inspire you next time you go to your local bookstore or library to try poetry instead!
Update (Jan 31): In the “live what you preach” spirit I visited a bookstore yesterday and got myself a book of poetry from Thomas Hardy!
