Is there anything that you love , anything for which you have a fine appreciation, but don’t know how to do / are not very good at? For me, it’s tennis and spoken word.
I love watching tennis matches and for a while back, I could recite stats, name the players, etc. I don’t watch as much and I don’t really follow the tournaments and matches anymore, but if a game happens to be on, I’d pause and watch. I’m not good at tennis. Not at all. I don’t remember when or how my love for tennis began.
Same with spoken word. I absolutely love spoken word, especially Sarah Kay’s. I could sit and listen for hours. I marvel at how she can so cleverly weave words together so beautifully and ‘perform’ in such a way that draws the audience into the worlds that she had created with mere words. I dabble in poetry when the mood suits me, but my poems are for private consumption, not for public sharing –not on my blog and certainly not to be performed.
