Fair comment, from myself. I am poet today because of you. I was engaged to poem during Latitude days. My favorite part about that show was the starting introduction of the show THERE IS A SPACE BETWEEN YOU AND ME and the last two minutes of the show, where you were wrapping up the show your scripts. I you are the reason I join the industry and the industry is also happy to have a poet like me, because of your motivations that's was all over my mind. #OneLove
