    This is really something else. ❤️ Having a single musician accompanying her words makes it more special. I love the deep tones of the cello. It pairs so well with her deep words! I love that piece of music also they chose!

    What a zero she is. A husk of flat prose. For those who we would not know a poem if it took the top of their head off.
    For some genuine poems, listen to Robert Bly accompany himself on the oud.

    Never stop learning. The human art of language is beautiful when used so creatively. The accompanying music is a language too.
