Creative Inspiration: Billy Collins

Among America's poet laureates, Billy Collins is one of my favorites. He takes the everyday, and transforms it. For example, we've all been annoyed by a barking dog, but only Collins has written Another Reason Why I Don't Keep A Gun In The House.

And, before I forget, poetry and animation make a fascinating combo. Enjoy!

Well, the video is reassuring and, at the same time, frightening. It's good to know I'm not the only one forgetting; scary to think about it for too long!

I had forgotten what I posted today. Truly. It is a little frightening ...

There's a little yappy dog who lives one street over from us and I have a new perspective for him now. Really enjoyed the video too. Social media is changing other art forms, it's amazing.
