Getting the wind knocked out of you is the only way to remind your lungs how much they like the taste of air.

I love the Under 30 series in TED Talks.  Sarah Kay is fantastic and I want to be her friend.  I think the way that she talks about poetry is the way that we feel (or hope to feel) about our passions; they help us make sense of the world and, as we learn more and know more, become the backpack of tools we bring to discover more about what we don't know.

I want to meet Charlotte, the student who wrote that Anderson Cooper is a gorgeous man.  And Sarah Kay, the teacher who let her.
