Emerging…

I just kept hearing the word “emergence” in my head recently. Where am I going to wake up and make my next move? What will it look like? Do I really need to abide by these self-imposed rules? Or can I just…do what I want to do? Is it okay for me to emerge into this new unfamiliarity of a…

Inspiration to keep going – RIP Dick Gregory

“I chose to be an agitator,” he said. “The next time you put your underwear in the washing machine, take the agitator out, and all you’re going to end up with are some dirty, wet drawers!” ~ Dick Gregory (from this CBS interview) Thank you, Mr Gregory, for your courage, your strength, your tireless advocacy, your humor, your wisdom, and…
