Taylor Mali: A Poetic Inspiration

Like many people, I’ve wasted many hours playing around on YouTube. Though my husband could watch Jeff Dunham clips every day and my daughter gets a kick out of baby animal videos (both can be entertaining, I will grant them that), my weakness is educational videos—the kind that are enlightening, entertaining, and moving. Those babies make me want to watch videos all day, sobbing or laughing or both the entire time.

Sir Ken Robinson is my favorite—though there are many TED talks, professional speaker clips, and other pioneer voices that provide the same humorous yet insightful commentary. Lately, however, I’ve stumbled upon Taylor Mali, and I am absolutely hooked.
