The Visionary Activist Show – Liberating Aphorisms with Yahia Lababidi

Caroline welcomes the return of Egyptian-American poet, aphorism Genie, Yahia Lababidi,

on this Maundy Thursday, that the Mythic News may weave the secular-muggle news into liberating divination…

 

Yahia Lababidi is an Egyptian-American thinker, poet and author of 7 books in 4 genres. Lababidi’s forthcoming book, “Where Epics Fail”, was featured on PBS NewsHour and is generously endorsed by Obama’s inaugural poet, Richard Blanco.
Do you know what an aphorism is? It’s not exactly a Haiku, a proverb, an axiom, nor a poem, yet it harnesses the power of all these. Aphorisms are an ancient form, but its current-day master is Yahia Lababidi.

Like a sip of wine, a wave just as it breaks, a sliver of the moon, or a drop of rain, each of Yahia’s aphorisms appear as simple, natural gestures, that in fact hold multitudes of meaning rooted in the eternal.” -Richard Blanco

‘Epics’ is to be published by Unbound (UK), in partnership with Penguin Random House and currently is available for pre-order: https://unbound.com/books/where-epics-fail/
