Documented in June 2010 with a Flip Camera during the 13th Annual Brave New Voices International Youth Poetry Slam in Los Angeles, Shannon Matesky (shannonmatesky.com) asked Rolando "What does the phrase Life Is Living mean to you."
"My goodness. It means being invited to name something, like a Daughter... Listen, this is what I feel. Whatever you value in your life, whatever that thing is, whatever those things are, celebrate them. Celebrate them loud, celebrate them in front of other people. Share that celebration. And from that celebration, figure out ways to continue that thing with which you love. That's Life is Living is. Realizing that your Life is about Living in celebration of the things you value. We value some really good things. And some challenging things as well. But we're working on it."
Shout of to Queen Godis & Hodari Davis.
