"We need the poem. We need the minute. We need the respect for the minute more than ever."Naomi Shihab Nye
The spaciousness of the minute is a favorite topic of ours at 1440 Multiversity.
Named after the number of minutes in a day, 1440 is a place devoted to helping you discover opportunities for connection, for stillness, for learning, and for delight in moments spent here and back home in "real life".
To watch Naomi Shihab Nye, award-winning poet and 1440 faculty member, light up as she talks with 1440 cofounder Scott Kriens about poetry's ability to beautifully occupy tiny increments of time sure has us smiling and nodding in agreement.
