Dreaming While Awake: Where Moony Interviews Artists About Their Art, Development, and Being a Human

My friends!

In the recent Dreaming While Awake, I had the great pleasure to meet with the magnetic and energizing poet and creative leader Masaki Takahashi!

This was a great interview where we learn about Masaki’s poetry focuses, development, and power within the arts community as well as his appreciation for food and hip-hop.

Check out the video!

Ways to connect and learn from this spoken word poet can be found in the video!

Be well, my friend.

Moony's Poems

40 stories
Two young children, one draping an arm over the other, both facing away from the camera, walking down a dirt/gravel road to a distance not established. Upon the sides of the road are brush that are bristlely, short, and dry grass.
Porcelan doll face that is cracked and looking down and with the closed mouth, looking scared.

A person, how hands are hidden in front of them, stands just before an open lane at a bowling alley. All pins are set for a fresh take at the bowl. Neon lights are all around, the room feels dark and cool. It is ready to be played.
An individual is holding these multi-sided paper shaped three dimensional start in their hands while many others are floating all around them. The star being held is covering the individual’s face. This is to say “have imagination and let it flow from you.”

Motivation Series

6 stories
A collection of natural images such as the ground of a forest, desert extending higher through the natural layers of our existence (moving through the trees, to the mountains, sky, then stars) showing our place in this reality of current.
