Dating while poet cory booker arianna huffington dating
A big reason why people don’t have a go at poetry is because they’re worried they’ll fail.
But there’s no such thing as failing if you’re just writing it as though it’s an experiment in understanding things/people/the world.
For me, poems are stories of personal experience, written so that many people can relate, even when the ideas are oddball.
A friend and I were at lunch, discussing our frustrations with online dating, when I suddenly realized the ridiculousness of our conversation. I decided, right then, that I needed to do something to alter the course of our conversation.
Here we were, two modern, educated women, and we had spent nearly two hours talking about our romantic relationships! Putting on my big-girl feminist cap, I said, “You know, there have been a lot of talented, amazing ladies, throughout history, who never coupled off.
We laughed, and then went on discussing our own dating disasters.
For the next week or so, I went about my business as usual, but this Emily Dickinson idea wouldn’t go away. It would be an interesting art project, if nothing else.
