From my very first post I wanted to pay homage to the speech which inspired the title of my blog, Ain't I a Woman? by Sojourner Truth. Such a beautiful speech, such a beautiful name, such a beautiful woman. It is one of my favorite pieces. I strive to emulate this style in my own work. Poetic and powerful. Honest and unafraid. Memorable. And I like brevity. It too is beautiful. This is the standard I wish to be held to as I explore the question with you ~ ain't I a writer?
"Obliged to you for hearing me, and I do have a few things more to say..."

poetry night | Nikki Schwab | Yeas & Nays | Washington Examiner

      Man, I wish I was invited to this party! A poetry party at the White House.  Still, I am so very happy that my president and first lady are having it. The connection she is making with schoolchildren so that they may benefit from the event too, is under-appreciated. And did you see the photo of the president reading Chicka Chicka Boom Boom!? I'll post it for you. Wish I could hear that too. Can you hear me sighing?
