Sometimes the only thing to do is be quiet and get out of the way. Such is the case with this lesson in astonishment, a spoken word poem entitled,  “Acceptance Speech After Setting the World Record in Goosebumps.”
As Colorado poet laureate Andrea Gibson recommends, “Tear off the caution tape from your life and be touched.”
I hope your Thanksgiving is filled with lightness and beauty and too many goosebumps to keep track of.
Beautiful side note: Though Andrea Gibson is Colorado’s poet laureate, it turns out she is actually from Calais, Maine. 453 goosebumps.
