But Seahawks wide receiver DK Metcalf came in dead last in his first pro track and field race. But it was still amazing show and considering he ran the 100 M in 10.37 seconds, and he was asked why he would put himself through. This Was this just a PR stunt working out? I mean, just to test my speed up against the world class athletes like this? No, no, Like I said, Man just had the opportunity to come out here and warn against these guys, which is just It was just a blessing. You weren't afraid of the risk of what might happen in terms of just your profile and just your speed on the field, which we all live to see what Why were you not afraid to risk it? Because I'm a football player and athlete first man, a guy So you know, I just do things because I want to do it. So DK ended up coming in 15th out of a field of 17th in the U. S. Did you hear what that that question was like, Hey, you weren't afraid to jeopardize your profile. There's this so many of us that are held back in life because of our own insecurities and being afraid to fail. I gotta tell you, Ursula. It's okay to fail. And you know what?

Why 98% of Businesses Never Break $1 Million in Sales

"Yes. The first thing you want to look at right is the plan. I talked about that earlier right and get it out of your head. You know what you wanna do. It's in your head. It doesn't have to be perfect. It just has to get on paper because once you realize when it's on paper you can see 'em mitt charging when i need to charge. Seventy nine percent of small businesses are undercharging for their product and service. I know everyone that's listening right now. You know you need a pay raise because you pulled that pricing out of your hiney. Let's be clear we all pull it out of her honey. What is dennis charge. What a charge. What is bomb charge. When was jim charge. I'm gonna charge this basma. Nothing nothing to do with your pricing. So i go through a formula. 'cause even my business when i first started right i was undercharging. Five dollars right. Which doesn't sound like a lot of money but five dollars times three hundred customers. Right was fifteen hundred dollars a month. I was losing times twelve months. That was eighteen thousand dollars a year. I was losing and that was off a one service. So you you look at. You're losing money because you won't take the time to get clear on what it is. You're doing eighty eight percent of small businesses. Don't hit that hundred thousand dollars. We can go get jobs. One hundred grand. So i want to if you're going to do this and if you're going to sacrifice your time your money your retirement account hawk your home right. Get a home mortgage max out your credit cards. Let's do it right so it's looking at. Who is the ideal client back in the day as a hairdresser i was like where do i find my ideal qualified customer. So we all know our avatar and you put together but the missing piece that i see is you. Don't get clear on how much money they make. And how much disposable income. They have doesn't matter if i make one hundred grand if i'm spending two hundred gram it doesn't matter how much five hundred thousand dollars if you're spending five hundred fifty thousand dollars so do they have the ability to swipe that card and pay your prices and services. You'll grow your business quicker and faster if you get really clear. So i'm really clear who my avatar is

How Does Tik Tok Lead Generation Ads Work

"Last year since it really grew. And hey should i be on tiktok that you know as my audience there and so that's what i really wanted to talk to you about recently. Tiktok launched legion as one of the campaign objectives and it really just copies the campaign objectives from google from facebook from linked in twitter. And you'll notice if you're setting if you're setting up in ads account on any of those platforms. One of the first things that are going to do when you're looking at the ads. Creation is choosing the audience right. That's one of the things but the first step is really choosing the objective. And so if you go on tiktok in the ads manager part of tiktok you can see that. They now offer lead generation as one of the objectives right so if you wanna generate leads beat a b. or b. two c. It's there for tiktok whether it's gonna work for your business or your product or service or industry it. You'll need to test. I am testing it right now with a couple different clients. I'm testing it with my podcast. I actually just set up a lead gen campaign on tiktok for fifty dollars to run over the course of actually sixty dollars over the course of. I believe it's three days. So that's the minimum or you can choose the other minimum which is Twenty dollars a day but if we look at the audience the way i see it as this sixty two percent of all tiktokers are in the. Us are between the ages of ten and twenty nine. so that's not my audience. I know my audience the majority of the decision makers that i worked with them daily basis as a b. two b. service provider. My audience is forty five to sixty five years old. That's those are the people that are almost always making the decisions on building account. So you have to figure out if you're a b. two b. is your audience there presumably if they're telling me that sixty two percent or ten twenty nine than the other thirty percent are thirty years to sixty five years. Don't but i don't know a lot of adults who are of a you know even my my age category genetics Spending too much time on tiktok nevertheless even if you can get a small audience and generate some leads.

Somebody's waiting outside the delivery for so andrew came across a paper in the journal. Frontiers in psychology which. I was so charmed by that. You've read as we can talk about it. It's called acquisition of a joystick operated video task by pigs. How could i forget for the listener. I'll just explain. These experiments were carried out at penn state university. There were four pigs. A pair of yorkshire pigs named hamlet an omelette and a pair of panna pinto micro pigs named ebony and ivory. I guess after stevie wonder and paul mccartney or the song of that name or after piano keys and the paper describes what the pigs were and were not able to learn in these experiments manipulating video game joystick with their snouts. And what i really want to know is tell us how it changes your thinking as a psychologist if it all about non human animals their capabilities. The way we should think about them perhaps differently about ourselves differently. Well thank you for broadening. My academic horizons. I would not have read this paper on video games and makes were it not for our friendship so i i will just say that when i read this line i literally laughed out loud after twelve weeks of training. Hamlet and omelette were terminated from the experiment because they had grown too large no fit within the constraints of the test pen. Academic research is tough. You lose fifty percent of your research pool just like that so anyway now down to two test subjects by the way. So one of my intuitions is that one ought not an. I understand that this research is hard. But maybe not generalize to olive pig them based on this very small number of pigs because look at wilbur wright some pig yeah so maybe ebony or ivory were some one of them was much better than the other in the research so there's various across pigs even yes.

I it's a funny story That has a very funny ending I remember a year or so before that There was a movie that came out I don't think very many people saw it was a movie called the secret and of course almost everyone has seen it and this was right at the beginning and i remember watching thinking two things number one. This is a very good movie and a lot of people are going to see it. And i really felt like the movie stopped short and fac in from my perspective. It chronicled what. I call the egos law of attraction which is based on. How do i use spiritual law to get what i don't have in somehow field feel fulfilled and i knew that what was really needed was to take it one more step. It was a wonderful first step but the next step was. How do we manifest from the level of soul not from the level of ego which is based not on what i can get but what i can give is not so much focused on riches but richness and less upon goods and more upon goodness because of course when we have richness in our lives and goodness in our lives will then everything else follows and we find ourselves fulfilled on levels. That we can't even imagine. I know i live in mexico in a small town called heat mexico and i'm surrounded by some of the richest people ever known even though they have next to nothing. These beautiful mexican families that surround us. And i know many people who have extreme abundance and they're poor and so the moses code is meant to take us to the level of soul so that we can become the source of that goodness and it goes back historically thirty five hundred years and what i always like to say is that this was a code. That was lost thirty five hundred years ago and it is the most powerful manifestation tool in the history of the

Why 'Anti-Aging' Is Out in the Beauty Industry

"In recent years for example like law magazine made this big hole statement that they're not going to use the term anti aging and so i'm forty two so i want someone who i don't know if you consider that oven age where i would do anti-aging but like what's your take as a woman who seventy on calling some of these things like vitamin c. Serums or retinoids anti agers so I just want to tell you the my started the over magazine in two thousand one. I made it a point. Never to use the words anti-aging. Did you all the way through without doing that absolutely. Not because by the time you know actually it was fairly close to the time. I left the since i was there for a very long time. I was able to do it for a long time. But after a while because of the industry you know it just became impossible not to use those words because in so many products so so when i i understand why we use that language because as an aging woman i know looking at an aging face. It it gives us lots of cues to something. Nobody wants to think about. Which is that not going to be here forever. So i mean. That's the most obvious thing i think is also probably the most subconscious thing is what we'll be looking at aging face like. Why do we recoil. I mean if it's a really old says well it's because it reminds us that we're gonna die one day and there's somebody probably standing in front of us is closer to that than we are. But it doesn't you know we're not we're never gonna be. None of us are going to be excused. So there's understand where the language comes from. But but i was thinking about you know would you. Would you march in a parade in carry a flag. It said anti aging jewish a feminist and an aging. And i respond to anti aging in a similar way that i respond to anti semitic and anti feminist. I'm not gonna march in a parade carrying with people who are carrying anti aging

I'm doing one to two hours of exercise. But i love it. I love it and it's halt. It doesn't come easily. The thing that we started doing before lockdown was. We have a very well known boxing gym at the bottom of our road. And i'm brady against boxing reagan punching people. But we'd heard about this boxing gym and we just saw in sellers had gone. Let's go and i'm like. I don't know i don't wanna be no punch beef and you might be a bag. Well we nagarajan pair. Boxing gloves a most fantastic experience. I mean i'm clearly the oldest person there but the guys are fantastic. The groups wanting to fool. It's not competitive. I can say the appeal of the inbox. Training is really hard coal. We just go for and when they stopped Gym's closed they were allowed to do one to one sessions solid. Several mosques up. We've got our own gloves. They're very careful And that was even harder because it's just you and so they make you do all the punching but it so much more focused on the detail and then you have to deal with this outside the running up and down and you know i just have loft with them. And it's it's not competitive. It's not about never going be a so. I don't want to be a boxer. Hate boxing professional. I hate the thought of punching and hurting someone but the five actually ended up doing is is hilarious. It's something on every much so One of my other things about resilience is constantly trying to push the boundaries. And kind of see. What else i can do. What can i do next week.

So the themes will be complex and interesting and maybe at some times be triggering if you've attended this position today put this on pause and bookmark it for later. Otherwise Dive Right In today. I'm actually Overjoyed to be introduced and what's going to call you my long lost friend chocolate the Friendship has gone. It's just the you're in another part of the world than you used to be absolved. And you're in a country with its own challenges some of these say that so you should say that that's a understatement but yes, yes ton of challenges. I would say so you're in the this United States of America. I am I am in and not only am I in the United States. I'm in the middle of Silicon Valley Home in California, which I think the last time I I looked this up the the sort of if it was if California was its own country club in terms of the money generated, it would be the 7th most sort of profitable country in the world will be number seven. Which has its own problems. I found that quite a stunning fact. I've been enjoying some of your poems on Instagram and I'm like, oh, I can't quote the whole oshaka. I won't about the one of the poems. I just think is phenomenal is the poem. You said you might change the title of it is the one called stuck. Oh, yeah is a perm and a half and is it? Is it is it you don't know what Devils had to be tamed for me to be here now. Yeah, it was. Yeah, it was even who just saying that it you know off the Genesis of stuck was you know, and it's it's it's tied to all that's going on now with with the police brutality and and and I wouldn't even say its BLM but it's off, you know, I was sitting here God there's so many different aspects to this but there's this idea that you know back order for as a young as a black person coming up in in in the United States and police brutality and just all of these things that you sort of wage order to move forward. It's almost like you've got a tuck this stuff away. It doesn't it doesn't mean that you forget about it or anything of that sort, but you can't move into this world. I mean it's dead. It's a racist environment is a racist. Well, you can't move through it if you're attaching all if if you've got it all stuck to the outside of your body, then everything's going to stick off. So you almost have to tuck it away. The problem with that is that there's these moments like this like Mike Brown like almond dobre like off George Floyd Brianna Taylor that make these things pop back out, right and you've got to figure out how to manage that and manage the anger and the same ad and the fear and all of that and then tuck it back away cuz I got to get up and go to work the next day. I've got a raise a child. I've gotta do all of those things and that's what kind of the stuck came home. Right? Cuz it's all it's all kind of stuck and there's one day I was sitting here and just randomly this wealth of emotion Port over me, and I'm dead. Crying and and it wasn't for any one particular thing and what it really when I sort of peeled away the the layers I've put stuck so many things away. I didn't remember how many of them they were and how many times I had. I I could have been the Mike Brown's I could have been to George fluids, right the amount of times that things have happened just walking down the street and police stopping me are being pulled over in a car and and I've written about it here and there but it was just moment when it all came and I think to a certain level. I suppress this memory of these four policemen, you know running up on me in my apartment. I was carrying Pizza. I had a pizza box and my key is coming into my apartment and You know it just it I think I partly suppress it. But in that moment, it came back full fledged. Like I remember seeing the nozzle of the guns Irish, and and I think what all of this sort of brought up in me is how easily You know, you know there's another poem I have as about a a stop at a police car and the whole idea that I don't even know this guy. Bob understand the I I do understand the language his uniform speaks, right? And there's a line in there where I said, you know, I'm wondering all these things one of which is I'm wondering how quickly this Earth beside the car could bury me right? And so in that same sense, it's sort of like I I sort of like went right back to that moment and it was just a month which that could have been, you know, it could have been completely different and I tried to capture it in that poem stuck while it was here while it was you know, while it was Earthbound so to speak and that's where that that sort of poem kind of came out of and sort of like, let me let me catch it now before I stick it away I thought It's really important cuz we were talking before the interview talk about started about the thought impact of the afterworld on our inner World in a very broad way and that poem describes it really well. And I remember having a conversation with a friend of mine who's a photographer and we were talking about different sorts of oppressions to the body and that the more privileged you have the less you need to erect an invisible force field around yourself off when you enter into that world and entering into that world doesn't mean when you leave the house. It means everything including your computer your television, even when you close your eyes so that force field means stuck that force field means the burial of feelings in order to do that. You say dog Take your kids to school get the milk from the store right brush your teeth.

You've never seen my nails like this. I've not been able to go and get my masterful nails. So my hands are my near this cuts us closest my mommy is. Yeah that's been. My Momma that's wedding ring. You know they are me but so that's been. So that's been the thing that's been the most extraordinary thing. And hanging out with my friends on Sube. So Saturday and Sunday my friends and I had out and soon nearby Fransen later and other people pop into resume and we spent a whole. There we go. We're GONNA TALK WE'RE GONNA clean I'm doing this. So we spent two days Saturday and Sunday just work everybody doing what they're doing my friends I'm not I'm shopping now you know he should have died my friends is like I'm doing the toilet I'm here going I'm doing I'm who? Through the Bina, steam the steam US come. So that's been really good that kind of woman space with my friends Tony in south. Africa's popped in cleaning dishes while she's. And Sometimes Karen McCarthy's come on and she's working on a project where she's writing. So she's researching. So she sitting on a couch and ever so often she. Just, read this guy. So that's been the great thing about Kobe at. That's actually a big self help thing. I was GONNA say 'cause I was gonNA use a preemptive me because I was going to run the how much Conversation and communication part. Of self-help. Keeping grounded and it seems like this combination of, but below US use transmission before this transformational. Element of your relationship with your mom through the cooking and how presence your cooking and an embodied way. But then this thing, it's not just chatting on the phone. You're all in your little pocket, doing your things and some of them quite domestic. Yeah and they're always like Malaika you again, I'm like Yeah Yeah Yeah. Oh. My God, I'm rolling the royalty and this animal use. So but also we're not concentrating on each other on zoo. We're actually like actively in our house I'm going you finish all of that wallpaper looks nice that you're putting up. So it's that kind of interaction. We're we're present with each other true to who through technology. But we're all doing what we need to in our house. So we're all meditating together, win a meditation group as well, and there's this thing all gold trek. Blackwell right WELP walk in for the Revolution for twenty one days which we did and each day was another black woman was featured. So so two of us were doing that. So we'd be like, Oh, I did my check to the how did you do yours? At that got me out of my house walk in for thirty minutes listening to something on Angela Davis or. Only, Maurice. And knowing that thousands of women around the world were doing the same thing. So those. All of that I they now you've heard the whole of my my my kind of. My self help like kind of. you know The care self care but it's United States by towel say. The Metaphor of the of Catholic Church in Alabama Catholic Church. And the by tower in. Things of big grand. They're not so timid gray and even yourself cad. Is quite big grounds and full vitality during gala we do these things. Let me. Have a little talk Moore talking to a whole day I'm on Cook for the whole week and is applicable things dislike. Of necessity it has to be bigger. Well, I grew up in I grew up a lot of people so we would go. How to for. One. So. I. Do this big cooking from. Seven royalties and like this big Paul Cory. Aquino Jacob my neighbor. So he benefits from I, just kind of ring his bell and go. He's upstairs like, oh, he's a rights is when I go do you need some extra food but apart from that I have to figure it out and then I realized after talking to them that actually. When I have food for the whole week, I can then just get up going right and stuff and I'm not cooking in the week. So I can actually have. You can have lunches for my week. That's already done on Sunday. When I do that then I have a more productive week and so it's routine something. You. Enjoy. I think you. I-. I created then I break then I create then I break it. And But something needs to it the you need an ankle. So my six o'clock stopping to do my ex, my exercise on zoom means that everything I know that things have to rotate a meet six o'clock you know what I mean. You need ib anchor because you're just in your house on your own. So I do create routines when the writing retreat is going well the routine it's because I, stick to the routine and it works and then you know but during Kovachev allowed myself to go broke down. Okay Go. Then let's see this doesn't work. Let's try. And there's I think there's an experimentation when you're trying to get a routine around right where What worked last book or the last thing doesn't work the next time and you're trying to discover something new and I yeah. That's that thing about I wanted to sometimes with. What rock routine doesn't lost time. and. It works differently each time you write a book because the quality of the rioting perhaps requires different routine. Now, as simple as with you're writing a novel got to do so many hours and if you're writing opponent of this, but the actual must the energetic quality and the themes in the work require something different is almost like the music of it sounds different. So what are you working on at the moment I'm working on? I'm I'm working on a two long-term projects that I've been working on quite a while. I'm when my mom had a stroke had it had a devastating effect on me and I didn't realize. So I put both projects Donald Work on a play on. So I'm doing a PhD where I'm looking at the I'm continuing this project looking at the Bible. What happens if you place the the Caribbean region language, the people in a biblical context with the King James Bible specifically and how the effect of the King James Bible on carbon poetics, and then I'm doing something which is looking at nine nights morning and wake. And that's the next book. So that's what I'm working on obviously, also on the covert, it's taken on it's not at first. It was just like nine nine traditions, but now it's just Spiraling into all these things, but it's about way can an and morning and Celebration I'm an autism homage. So those two things the thing about Mourning. And celebration because I'm I'm. And the sort of grieving process and that seems. It's always very dominant but Zim sorry dominant now about how we grieve for. People. Power and our global community but separate from. And then how can we include?.

"Cocaine and chide meditation for the first time because I've never been able to do it and exercising is about create that balance and realized the work is important but actually establish some bits of self care is important too. I mean Self Kasim's like quite. A small description. As like an antidote to what you're talking about 'cause when you talk about the poem as an object, the actual thing is a a process. It's a gift. It's almost like an incantation. You know because an object makes it seem like Scott Fine. My edges that can be contained somewhere, which is very so as. The idea of containment is I think aligned with wideness. You know it's contained not. So different ways contained it's controlled. It's labeled it in a place a no sent this poem. Go through this huge. Process is a huge undertaking when I get commissioned to write this pace on the my say like with the the unarmed black soldiers in the trenches and may maalot instant parallel as you know, health workers and Cabraha 'cause without the And also like legislation people say, Oh, the Mitchell a lot of. The. Black. People dying during cold bid, and so there's the black this this narrative happen, and then there's not Lincoln up with the narrative but that's a lot of them work for the Health Service Work for the Care Service Work in these spaces. So of course they they don't have but but but but but it saying, oh, it's because of housing is because of porn is because of this and somehow were clapping for the NHS and we're still doing the same thing that we bid for that that West Indian soldier in World War One. On. The western Souljah that description and this poetry comes into their. Axes lack of so powerful agonizing metaphor. You know the Black Man. In the trench with no protection and the anime, the enemy always has the power because the black man who is most vulnerable as saying as. The. Two is the most is the black Monday centers is the most vulnerable is seen as also the most threatening and there's lots of that that terrible twist. Of what's actually happening Latte distortion, which which goes on, which goes back to the goes back to logical. Because anthropology was to go out and studied the natives to combat. figure out how to deal with them and it goes back to that. It goes back to this thing of of. It goes back to the biological determination. All these or evolution is it goes back to all of these fundamental. Theories and and and stuff that that that that came out for to kind of justify the kind of The annhilation of of people of color around the world whether that's in the Pacific but it has Australia. Whether that's in America. This thing that these people salvages they have no culture they have no language. They have no there there little more than animals. And Somehow. When you hear you know when you hear my cousin was killed by police happening last year. When you hear the language that comes out beasts threatened aggressive it still that same language that permeates and as a writer. Then language is not only playful for me because language has you know the the the point has to be burst out of the scenes for me and that has a responsibility. Yes, and so I guess it has it has to be interrogated interrogating it as well. It's not it's not a responsibility, it's interrogation it. So it's interrogator language and having a new language, but also sang watch this language. Watch it. See see how it's being yet. And saying how it's underpinning everything. So in terms of self care looking opt yourself and doing meditations. Ridiculous and enviable matter exercise and cook with skid row the whole the whole thing. How much. Obviously that is lovely. Great thing to do. How much does rest play a part in your self care? Because I think rest is so K. restless. Okay. It is when that's how I realized that something was wrong as soon as I kind of locked down I kind of followed my body and stayed on my couch in my living room and made my living room kind of of one house bunk retreat, and the thing I did was slip. Slept an arm and equip only creative output I could do is cook was caught five into in food was Leptin and cooked. For about. Four weeks. And so yes. So sleep does play rest does play a part in it. and. Realizing that the more rested I am the better I'm equipped to do this work but also realized that a lot of times I live in my head, you know So something happens and I'm doing this work I'm I'm say this is if they're easy kind of links that I made, but it involves a lot of thinking and realizing that a lot of times I'm thinking constructed a watch shop in my head I'm mentoring people reading their work in my head I'm reading my own books in my head I. Always Forget I have a TV. So I'm usually in my land. and so what what what what what creates the balance is when I start to do things that are physically physically I. Have to concentrate to exercise especially when I started I'm I'm awkward I don't understand what the arms demand for half an hour my brain stops what I'm skipping on counting escapes. Okay. Now you're at two hundred and fifty you can stop. So then the brain then the brain. The brain kind of has a clarity. It's clear and it's a better space to kind of right and to create from. But. Also, it's better for me because I've been able to stop because if if I if I if if the one thing I could be this house doing all the time is reading read in history books. You know hugging them this great leading point cheap read the novels you know we didn't articles I just love reading so I'll be doing that. But that's a lot of input in a lot of thinking And Yeah, and also interestingly enough the the the cooking has been interesting because cook there's been a relationship with my hands. So my mom loves cocaine and my mom always called and sometimes when I was younger I, just especially when I was going to my kind of feminist women's face, I'd be like you're always why women always in the kitchen it's always cooking. and. Then as I got old I realized on my mom showed love like she with and I realized I have it like you know if I if if something happens I, want to cook for people want to open my door to people. My mom has that policy. But in the closed door couldn't invite people round I started cooking for myself but I was looking at my hands and my hands felt like they weren't by hands. They were doing the movements that my mom does like. That my mom didn't cook him and I was trying to cook the food that I never tried to from cookbooks like Rotea and I've challenged myself to call this food that I was cooking from scratch and so. Every time I would the kitchen on Sunday. Cookie. Sundays the cookie day for the week. It was like everything up to my wrist was like a booker and then the hands on my mom and my mom is in the room with me my mom how to town was stroke and she's a nursing home in in the American. So you ought bit on that happened him. I was really worried because she was very ill at the beginning and very worried watching the situation in New York and obviously solve the care things that I've been doing have been have been around.

Welcome to the vast shots myself Alba freshdirect he's talking to people across the globe about that pandemic experience. On its relationship to pray of J. Mental, health emotional wellbeing? And as always, I'd like to a warning these are adult show of the themes will be complex and interesting and maybe at sometimes triggering. Ten the disposition today put this on pause and put market for later saw otherwise dime right. I'm really happy today with my guest because she is Malaika book how I haven't seen in person for A. So. This is just like a real joy of me. With discussing beforehand how you describe yourself and say. This because I thought I better, get it right writer fair to maker a multidisciplinary. But that doesn't really describe Malaika because there's so much more about that become say. What is the thing if you have to think of things that you love? And this little gonNA give a little hint hair if you don't include carnival out be very, very disappointed. Tell me like five things you love that. Make you get off every morning five things I love that. Make me get up every morning so communiqu I am a carnival. So that's like number one in my list of wells. Redon. Books. People. Five. Yeah people. Even. Though I put. So as well music you know creating. soundtracks for what's happening in my life at the moment. So So, I always have a kind of soundtrack. At the moment it's a soundcheck because alters and it's all music. That's kind of all. Is All music that's kind of positive. And I'm also has Mary McCabe Malaika, which you know which is, which is good to have a theme song that someone who has a solo by you so music has while I create theme tunes for Music and. And then just just actually just being rights just creating creating I think. God, what show live just creating music create Inkatha Wall. It's I love about this is that it's a whole thing of creating. We're talking about before the ulcers about creating also site, Chris, beautiful, and special space. And music creates a space like nothing else. You know music creates base memory atmosphere culture music does a million wonderful things I'm won't fascinating. Is the I always have a question at the end of the interview which just been word that people respond to my desk got into its lay people respond to the word and I just hope by some sort of magic the world to be the right word for that person but your word. Which I'm not GonNa ask you now because you've answered there even though it was right at the musicality 'cause I was thinking about your work and how much music that is in your writing. And so I'm GonNa make a big leap pair about link between the musicality in writing that even you know it's lovely to perform any even as a raider even in the comfort of your own home is lovely readout loud because of the musicality and what's the relationship between musicality I'm religion I'm relationship to God or a universal source. That's really interesting because actually I think that's my work is concerned with my work is concerned with. musicality with religion and also with interrogating on Plantar Chrissy and the legacy of Trento crecy. on the Caribbean Diaspora. and one of the ways I think that we actually. Have always been able to express express ourselves is to music and through religion. And one of the continuities of our culture is the fact that we were able to embed practices within religious practices. So my family are very Catholic but also. So in a way, I can't think of Era I. Don't think in terms of you know if someone's if I'm if I'm with someone and they say, oh You know today's anniversary I'd be shocked if I remember some something like that or what date did that happen? I don't think in terms in like that. So someone says what they did. You create kitchen. His poetry kitchen, which is something I created someone says, what date did you start writing? I might not be able to remember that what I remember is the memory what I remember the footsteps of someone coming up the stairs what I remember is the musicality of Roger's voice in my kitchen or in my bedroom teaching people to write So I remember things through music in a way and also I think religious wise I grew up. Catholic. And so grew up in the Caribbean the musicality in the Caribbean in Church with tambourines and the singing in the Catholic Church and then coming over to Britain. I'm going to the Catholic Church over here was so different, the Catholic Church over here there was a coldness through there's an austerity to there's a kind of a clinical needs to the singing. When when you shake people's hands for the body of Christ, you know when you shake hand in the hand of peace which do in the service everyone with hold your hand very limply while in the Caribbean you to go round the whole church shaken everybody's hands and an unsmiling them and looking at them in the eye. So I think so music and so the to me, the music change and the musicality that I think has stayed with me that keeps putting itself into the music into the poetry is a Caribbean musicality. That comes out. So no matter how long I've lived in. Britain. The the musical landscape are also things like when I came over police and thief in the streets was the song that was playing and I came over in one thousand, nine, hundred, September hundred, nineteen one just after the Brixton riots so that at any time I, hear that song I'm instantly reminded some of Linton Kwesi Johnson's music on instantly reminded and take him back to social cultural political landscape. So the land as well as seeing with me through music if I think about women that I'm writing I, see their movement, the fluidity of their movement how they moved their waste how they walk in terms of music or even if I'm thinking about. If I hear someone talk in I most popular I'm going. You know if I, hear somebody I'm going to the DA dum dum dum dum. I can I can go I start kind of almost skorean although I'm told they're scoring the Jamaican. Vernacular or the Guyanese vernacular or I've kind of listening for the musicality to to how to kind of replicate in my work So that's how I think of music as supposed in this way although I can't sing. My Kryptonite as a poet is that I cannot get my head around IAMBIC pentameter untrue. Okay and all of those things I can't score it on the page. I can't get my head around and even though my writing is so embedded in that in musicality. that. That is fascinating because it sought. A missing piece about your work because I know your work we've been workshops together on of I've seen. I've had this. Real tree of saying poems as they become formed but even early drafts of yours still have this movement on dancing quality to it unlike you say it's from. It's from the CARABINERS, lie okay. How begun to survive this but taking this with US wherever we go take it into the Catholic Church and the so called gang from the Catholic Church, in the Caribbean to the Catholic church hair ratzel lymph handshakes everybody very solemn and it's also it's also sorry amid a metaphor going from the Caribbean from a from a sunny vibrant landscape so that charge the two churches are. Metaphors for the whole difference in lifestyle right because you go from this warm beautiful vibrant place to this everything is Brown. The House is the Dullness, the grain of the weather.

"Two of US shorts with neo me Watterson Albert Frederick. High. This is naming lettuce. Welcome to the US Charts Myself Alba Frederick talking to people across the globe about that pandemic experience. And its relationship to creativity mental health emotional wellbeing. And as always, I'd like to trigger warning these adult shows of the themes will be complex and interesting, and maybe it sometimes be triggering. If you're over ten the disposition today, put this on pause and put market for later saw otherwise dime right It gives me. Great. Pleasure. To introduce my guests today on a friend Adrian, Laurente who's on assignment on musician I was gonNA write a list of words because of my last people one murder the end, but number from one to thirteen. And you can choose the number a mile tell you the words and then we can talk about the. Three. As I, get older I think now living in this meet suit. I realized that with all the things that are happening it may be. The notion of the word us is less. and. I think Today for example, ironically is the ninety. Nine hundred ninth anniversary it's the anniversary of Black Wall Street. Being burnt. and. When I think about the notion of us as these events happen with the riots that are happening this very moment I think there should be less integration. It's less possible. Martin Luther King said something about. On his deathbed type should that. He realized that he had led the Negro into burning house. And I think that. What is coming out more in the laundry now is The notion of the inequality. propagated. Dare I say by White? People. And I think the notion of us is that we're. May, be a little less willing to have that. That we should. Focus on integration as much. And I think we should take back the Negro should take back word us. Look a bit more in to the things that. For example. that. Wall Street, for example, US building. Financial System. US. Being. Able to recognize that the pacemaker. Is Constructed by us in the first instance, the first car before Henry Ford was an ex slave. Jack Daniels. Slave to us, but we never seem to have a notion of us. We seem to have a notion of. I. Would you want to live with fully lift that Aslan? I was born here race in Canada I also think that the US. I don't feel alone even though. I'm walking down the street in. North of England because I feel the sense of us, it might spirit to my soul. I think assistant just a physical place think asses knowledge itself. The knowledge self when I was back candidate and That has grown like the garden I spoke of earlier. The Lone Guy lived here to the point where I'm able to harvest fruit in myself. To not have to live necessarily in the Blue Mountains amongst my people. But. I could then. Live in a log cabin in Canada which trying to get to. And Make separation from. Them. and. Be Able to. Focus a bit more on us even though I'm not physically beside. I would be close to my parents and my family in that unity of us. Is. Something, I don't have as I see here now. So Viva, even that small level even though I wouldn't be in my parents backyard just being on the same continent as them would give me a greater sense of us. Would you let's pitch another number? Six. Unity. It's almost like the system is designed not almost like the system is designed to. Go Out of its way to make sure that you don't feel a sense of unity. So. That word. Is No longer. Something that would make me you know itchen scratch his wants did made me feel uncomfortable maybe if it was mentioned on a personal level. The family. Our family has you know the good thing about being back on this island it's gone to my cousins and I was at my uncle's. Both funerals, their father. I was at. Both of their funerals. A weld in the mini? Back. Together with Uncle Lloyd's welder, he was a welder. So. Unity since this island differently been candidate could have ever done. Has Given me a sense of unity and family and allowed us to heal. As a unit. When I go back if I make it back out, spur my life than. That sense of unity will allow me to be in the woods by myself almost like an oxymoron. But you like to choose another number. Nine. Discomfort I guess I can describe in two different ways. Probably. One of the most familiar words. I live with daily. Because every time I leave the house. I live in West Yorkshire for example now. Every time I leave the house. It's not a lot of other Nikos around so. The minute I step out the door you said vows at seven twenty five to go to the A. Y. E.. And I'm in discomfort from the moment I see someone else in the morning. When I go to the job on the only welder there with a ticket. On that puts me in a particular position because the other welders don't have tickets or qualifications not that you need those things. It. ADDS to the discomfort. So even when you're trying to be better, you've made yourself actually more uncomfortable. So discomforted something I have to get up and leave the house. To demand I get home..

I get cooled up to comment by the BBC. About Eaton's history with colonialism and slavery. And I'm like. Why is the headmaster of Eton not talking about this? Why the descendants of slave traders not talking about this? Why have you not cold them? Why have you called a black person who was the most affected by that kind of environment to comment? Why do you always cool the oppressed to comment on the oppression? This is my fucking job. People say our Mussa like you made a career, I said. Do you know I've lost? If people knew how many friends I lost acquainted. I'd lost connections lost, and so oh, yeah, but do it. Do it for the work for the work, so yeah, price you paying. What price of these people pay on a human level? I'll do it. I'll do it. Don't get me wrong. I'll do the work I'm not going to give us an fucking medal I do it. This private conversations I've had a far more stressful fof nappy Kyw, far more important in the article I and I have those conversations and I never duck them. Out in the last week alone I have had. More of those conversations than most people, most fuckers having a lifetime where I've called people up cool people out in a private context when it's most frightening. I've called out people who've helped my career and I've written them privacy and said you were wrong. I've spoken to them and I'll keep doing it. And this isn't about whereas my reward. This is not what I'm saying. It's like. How do I get home? When do I get home? When do I feel safe? The fact that I sat here the age of forty. And I wrote an essay. I'm talking about.

And the reason why I can paint so eloquent is because I think about it. All the fucking time. I'm so far. This is the saddest thing about all of it. The past I am. A dent regret the life. I've made a proud of it. I'm really proud of what I've done with while I was given. But I'm so far. From the reality tonight one for myself. I think we'll be fucking. Slow painful I realize often about the multiple within. This this idea eve may ask his dislike. In this reality. It has been the span testicle reality. Physics improve. Do you know what I mean? It's not even a parallel universe that you can slip into slack. It feels like. The feeling is it's not there. But the longing for is the all the time.

"Doesn't possible to actualize them. I think the knowledge of that experience within you, and how it was profound means when you're talking to short now engaging with their imaginations on engaging with possibilities. Even if they're imagined possibilities, you're still have like a real lived experience of back frustration when you can't live out what you're dreaming about on. That seems also. To. Feed back to spring forward and even spring forward itself. As about? Putting an investment in the future place. And saying you know. What can we imagine forsaken happen? What good can we find there so all? Seems? To be linked somehow back one last question for you. and. You just have questions the people and I. Some of them of research based some of them. Lack experience experience the personnel into being download. There's wildland. Unveil either hit the right motor. They don't son. I'm asking people to respond to certain words or themes, and the one I thought for you was about self validation. Is that something that you. Want to have a part of your well being in the world, or is it outside? Your frame of Reference is it easy? Can you do all the things around? What self validation means you? Really interesting question because I have A. I have very fluctuating relationship I. think wouldn't self validation. From the day to day. And I guess in terms of self allegation. We me like feeling. Wow. Fi. Feeling that what you're doing is the right thing for you to be doing. And that the words you'll putting out into the world. Already K. I guess an. Our. Kush! Hard, isn't it to think? I know that I love validation from outside of myself and love IT I. Live office sometimes. And, sometimes I way more into that space meeting validation to come from outside. But I think might cool. I do. Often not to lay. Believe in myself in doing. If. That makes sense because my makes absolutely perfect sense because I can really relate I love external validation as apart mill on what worth neon was. On this. Power of me with this. That is always in the fuck. It mentally tentative anyway. It's like a bulldozer just carrying on I'm going to carry on doing the thing that I love doing. And all the other stuff is quite surface rayleigh. Yeah. I think that's something I tried to visualize is just me with this kind of? Not Tunnel, vision, because obviously other people in the outside is so important and so key to everything I do, but I, I think you have to create the path that you want, and then follow it like regardless of all the things that come in and is interesting in trying to buy a novel. There are so many things that will come in. Stop doing that and anything creative. Actually I think a lot of people find you want to write pay right. There are often all of these things that will come in, and can definitely take over, and sometimes I let them and sometimes i. don't but I think ultimately it's about having to. Forge your path and just trust that your making the right decisions at the right time, and and just follow that, and even if you could only see two steps ahead just to take those two steps them wait and then take the next two, and I think that's a a method that served me quite well so far. Absolutely, fantastic point to end though like a lovely. Closure it's brilliant. I WANNA. Find your still, not me. And thank. You be able to say about spring forward and and just work generally and just. Amazing which is marched, thank he. This has been lovely as well so thank key..

"Said what needs to say in the in the book and now I want is actually for people to read it into that. Think about that and then come back and say oh. Yeah what's going on here? What's going on here. I I I at the moment feeling like I've got. I've got bored to say about him until until all the people who've engaged with him I think so so the couple of months they'll be a few more reviews and a few more in depth so thinking about it and thinking about the book the Aachen then respond to so in the meantime since that's happened what am I doing. Got Off got couple of commissions on the guy that I'm just nibbling out trying to trying to solve inch my way through and workout at what to do. I am writing some new poems. I think Justin Sims that yet. I'm not GonNa make any particular claims that quality thoughts that heightened state that I think we're all in at the moment that it seems like it feels like to me at least a little easier to access first drafts faster than it might be. Just because all my. We're more attuned to emotions a bit more than than we might. Otherwise be and I think in my case because I'm not as quote unquote busy running round. There's more time for thought settle in naturally than just actually something out spicier. That's fascinating because I'm thinking of you running around and then your desk writing on but there's this beautiful vision in fronts view of the world moving on in it's subtle ways and Requires a source of quite a focus as well as the fact that these events have made things much more raw and those two things together roar emotion but the ability to be quiet and sit on. It's not the brings out more portray. It's like it brings out poetry quicker so it might not change the quality we've done if no about the theme yet because you'll have to wait for a long time before we see this but there's still the sense slap it needs to be got out now when nearly outlier and that's just one question on whilst I've been having Bullet listen people usually answer our CEO. Wisdom to us. They preempt my answers so I think the question on guns boss view although the ones I'm going to throw at you and what relationship do have with music anyway on how that's changed if a all I think the best if if you're going to pin me to a single with the best word is lapsed that music was the big thing of all my life from about the age of thirteen pretty much till the about twenty five twenty six driving abiding passion and what. I the thing that I spend my money on this thing filled up my life my and then I discovered poetry and then that chip that changed. I in the six weeks. Oh how long since lockdown three phases Verio Leon just very solidly listening to Radio. Three as a way of bilking out of the Aleve Blah Blah Blah from the the news and stuff and plus. I just cannot rights if there is speech going yup going on as well so I can't right. Listen to radio for this and and right to speech by S- podcasts. So after save is full moving about commuting or doing stuff that doesn't need as much food on concentration and then so two weeks of Right S. I've spent an of two weeks listening to very minimal ELECTRONICA and a lot of very badly then musical most but just stuff that's not so Tulsa in the background actors white noise that stuff like stalls stalls laid. Just get low of riot. She sack mozai wealth on notes. Almost just as I need that to be something that won't that be much that's noticeable. I when you say about that what I'm thinking slap because you'll often in the same environment era home unless you go rum that for me as it. Does it change the social texture of my environment? It's suddenly painting the ball two different color or that fund at Chao. It just changed. That changes the light in every sense. Experience becomes change. And so I'm wondering about you. You having this different sorts of soundtrack to change the environment and the minimalism seems to be quite key. I'm potentially but it's been so much I've not been thinking is changing the environment per se is just Ashley. It's almost. It's my cycles of. What do I need right now? An emotional level. That might not be able to express consciously overly always let the first two weeks something radically different that. I wouldn't listen to normally second second phases all my something. The you know I don't need to think about the just fills a gap. But is there don't need to think about and then the last two two weeks just golden. It's been very much going back to what I was listening to when I was a teenager. So go craving that sort of emotional familiarity. Its Sonic territory. The I know that I have to think about but still yet but still mean. Something's lots of stuff that I was listening to green up. Rem Fountains of Lane smashing Pumpkins. Your stuff like that and I think us again. It's it's just it's the oral equivalent of comfort food familiarity..
