A couple of weeks ago when I attended the Wyoming Writers conference, I was captivated by the poetry presenter when he read one of his poems on the first night, and I wanted to attend his workshops the folllowing day. My friend Rose, who is also a poet, pointed out that he was black and wore dreadlocks. Because of my limited vision, I wasn’t aware of this. So what, I thought. The next day, I attended his workshops, and I’m glad I did because I learned a lot.
This is exactly what Rhonda talks about in her post. It’s important to look past what your eyes tell you about a person. You may be pleasantly surprised at what you find.
