My daughter sent me this video, which opens with Sarah Kay’s If I had a Daughter ….  

Sarah is a Spoken Word poet.  If you can’t open this video link, you can find it here: Project V.O.I.C.E.

I was in the library, in The Quiet Room, working on my manuscript when this video showed up, and it just so happens I was reading through a section where my mother shares a favorite memory of her mother:  “She told the best ghost stories in the dark on the front porch.”

Did she ever.  Here’s to the spoken word.
