Flowers and Gardens(poem)

He loved them for just as long as the life of the roses he gave They weren’t green thumbs They gave their hearts, but he threw them in a grave. She had grown a garden, she was different from the rest He gave her his heart and she kept it in a chest He threw…

Youtube Spotlight: My Autistic World

A new Youtube channel is out that follows the life of a highly talented artist, dancer, and actor, Vincent Jones. He has autism but it hasn’t stopped him from dancing with some of the top choreographers, acting and writing plays, earning medals in sports, and having his art featured in exhibits.  I help in the…

Esperanza Spalding: Emily’s D+Evolution
