Ep. 125: Rhythmic Bridge with Paul John Dear
In Episode 125, #GODandMatter host, #ArleneJMGrant chatted with #PaulJohnDear while he was in Kuala Lumpur. Paul is a Rhythmic Bridge connecting people through music. He is also an ally and activist supporting the Black Lives Matter movement. On his website, rhythmbridge.com, Paul states, "My life has been enriched by my encounters with BIPOC and by the cultural connections, learning and inspiration they have afforded me. I recognise the privilege with which I walk through this world and I will always stand against Racism." Paul is from the United Kingdom and the spelling may be a little different to those accustomed to American English, but the sentiment is and was heartfelt.
Paul also connects people through his photography and poetry. Visiting Paul's site, paulscribbles.wordpress.com provides a closer look into the beauty of his thoughts and spirit.
During this Episode, Paul shared his original music produced in Scotland and also the poem, Community, from Starhawk, which he considers his go-to poem.
