Hi Love, 

Take a deep breath. Inhale. Exhale. Welcome to this moment. You are here with me in this space. In this blossoming month of June that's filled with uncertainty. In this moment, in this state of the world, life feels overwhelming. It is. We are living in a visceral reality. As a black woman I've always lived here. My mere existence is a constant statement. A burden my ancestors have carried and one I still bear. How does one proceed in this acute state of living?  The same way my mother has, and her mother, and her mother, and her mother, and possibly your mother has. Inhaling. Exhaling. Accepting. Revolting. As I step into this new month, with it's new challenges, I intentionally remind myself, that there's new hope and abounding knowledge to behold. Am taking this month to do something I've long said I would do: educate myself of my history. The revolution is advancing and I want to strap myself with knowledge.
