If you want to give a good wedding gift to someone, just remember that a thoughtful gift is far better than an expensive one. This is what Joe Arroyo and his wife thought and gave a cute label maker to Joe’s sister.
Rather than throwing money on the first thing that is in the market, they give a little thought to the gift and came up with a brilliant idea. After Joe’s sister, Lita got her wedding gift, she started cracking up everyone with her sense of humor.

“I saw the world as a place filled with secrets, in-between colors, textures, whispers, and hidden spaces. I could make a world out of the smallest moment. And I still do. Being a poet feels like having two bodies — one in this world, and one in some other.”
“While that sounds like plagiarism, it’s not,” Lisa said. ” It’s totally okay, and normal in the early beginning. Eventually, with enough writing and reading, and listening to yourself, you will find authenticity and your own voice. I am always working on my own. But seriously: read. It’s not enough to write.”
“Create the poetry you want to read. There are no rules, and if someone tells you there are, they’re probably not evolving quickly enough,” Lisa added. “But don’t write for an end-goal — write for you. There’s just no way to say this more clearly: A poet must write as much as they can. That doesn’t mean for hours a day, of course. What I do mean to say is that you must dedicate some of your time to the craft.”
“Writing is like the body; it has to be conditioned to grow and change. Your writing ritual depends entirely on you. But you will never be a better writer without writing — even if what you are writing is bad or you dislike it. You will write through the badness and into the good.”
“I don’t think people talk about revision enough,” Lisa continued. “I certainly never used to revise, and it caught up to me. Whatever you create, right off the first go, is usually not a masterpiece. Some people say that the rawness of a first draft is indicative of its true power. Well, sure. But a poem is made of a few parts, one being the heart and one being craft, I think.”
