I've been thinking lately: What good does it do to spew out beliefs that the world is a big 'ol dumpster fire?
I mean, haven't we known this for a while? (Haven't Black people and other minority groups known this.... forever?)
While I believe awareness that systemic issues lie behind many (if not most?) of our problems in America is part of a larger process of REPAIRING those things, the process of change buries me some days. It's just so BAD!
GOOD IS HAPPENING. But it feels BAD. And I don't know where to process that. So, that's one of the reasons I've created this space here.
I love humor. I love happiness. I love lightness. But I don't always FEEL that way. And I can't explain that, each and every time, on Twitter (my primary social media channel right now). I don't want my Twitter feed to be cluttered with that. So I'm going to see if having that stuff here helps, and if I can explore it a little better with more space to talk.
I think it'll allow me to be & feel & express myself in a richer way, to give voice to both sides, the Celebration and the Commiseration.
Maybe it's a good way for you to get to know me better, too.
Maybe it'll give us something interesting to talk about more deeply one day.
We'll see how it goes.
