Those of us who stand out as exceptional artists tend to be those who work the hardest on improving our craft. If you’re paying attention at all right now, you’ve heard of Amanda Gorman. Watching her recitation on Inauguration Day and her subsequent interviews, it’s easy to see the amount of hard work she put into her poem. And it’s that work ethic, that breadth of research she conducted, that resulted in such a phenomenal piece of art. She is an inspiration for all of us, not just because of her incredible talent, but because of her dedication to her practice. It’s always good to listen to the greats. And I will be listening to Amanda Gorman.
