This week, when I thought about motivations, my thoughts kept returning to other people. I’m in a good place, I’m happy and peaceful–but I’m sure there are people I can help this week. And when I thought about what I really think about people, a certain poem came to mind.

I’ve started writing again, brushing up on my first slam poem and nibbling at a few new ideas. In that spirit, I think I need a little dose of Harry Baker to get me going today. I wanted to share his poem Paper People, but this video has two (they’re both great). If you want to skip to Paper People, start at minute 5:45.
