Taylor Mali

For the uninitiated, Taylor Mali is a poet. Taylor has been on championship caliber teams from Providence, RI & New York and has a way with words that can make your head spin. He features wherever he can and is always up for a game of Scrabble.™ Taylor has appeared on several episodes of Russell Simmon's, Def Poetry to the delight of viewers worldwide. Taylor, a former school teacher, has made it is personal mission to recruit 1000 new teachers through his poetry. While not quite there yet, to hear him perform, "What Teachers Make" is enough to inspire anyone to take up the cause for education.

Taylor recently posted a 202 word sentence in his journal. Not to shabby. If you are not of the slam poetry persuasion, at least give his journal a look. (link posted below) He's a pretty interesting guy with a lot to say. In a time in age of many people talking about nothing, Taylor is a breath of fresh air.

I hope you all are well.
