So yeah, Boston? I dig you: a poem by Regie Gibson

If you have any kind of appreciation for beautiful poetry and/or this beautiful place called Boston, I suggest you take a listen. Incredible way to conclude an incredible day with Boston Magazine.

New post recapping The Power of Ideas Symposium coming soon…but for now? Please excuse my amateur video work & enjoy…

I was humbled to watch Regie perform, while standing amongst a small crowd w/ big ideas; some of the most innovative leaders and creative thinkers of Boston. With my big-girl pants on and very official name tag hung around my neck, I was filled head-to-toe with awe and enthusiasm and a new perspective on my bright, bright future in Boston. Inspiration and excitement running through my veins. I dig this city. No, I big dig this city.
