Creative Inspiration: Will I Be Pretty?

Consider the power of just one word -- pretty -- on a child's self image. On a mother-daughter relationship. On life.

This video of poetry slammer Katie Makkai is making the rounds on Facebook ... I think it's worth a listen. As she might say, it's pretty amazing.

I am sharing this with my mom, who always encouraged me to be creative and intelligent, who always told me that beauty fades and should never be one's only pursuit. Katie Makkai's performance was amazing, and so full of truth... thank you for sharing.
