Letters

Why letters

As long as I can remember, I have always liked to write. Never minded papers in school and almost always have a notebook on hand to trap thoughts in ink before they’re lost. Sometimes I use writing as a clarifying or an emptying from everything going on in my head. Can’t say it always proves... Continue Reading →

The invisible player.

7.11.2020 Dad, The daily Scripture reading today comes from Isaiah chapter six. The verses are one through eight. The last, six-eight, is my verse. Here I am. Send me. Though this is the short and sweet reminder, the whole scene in this section of Isaiah is quite beautiful. I have spoken of it before, but... Continue Reading →

Lets talk about pride.

7.5.2020 Dad, If I think about it, it was quite fitting returning home from Denmark the day before the fourth. The whole month of June abroad I got to feel what it is like to be inside another country as an outsider. To be within and without. Us Americans asked the Danish girls on the... Continue Reading →

Undoing.

6.19.2020 Dad, I realize from my short 25 years that I have a lifetime of undoing ahead of me. More than a lifetime if I am true to my humanity. All of my efforts to arrive and be good have actually taken me farther away. All of my delusions I could be my own god... Continue Reading →

Upper room.

5.31.2020 Dad, I’m still only playing at love. I’m still only playing with black lives. I’m not trying to know their world but pull them into my own. Use the Dream [Between the World and Me] that burdens them to clothe their beautiful black bodies and redeem their inhumane lives. But it cannot. The white... Continue Reading →

5.29.2020 Dear friends, I have very much enjoyed being intentional about lingering with the Lord since my last message to you. His Word truly brings life to my soul, a mirror to my heart and clarity to my thoughts. I am continually amazed in the ways He manifests Himself and how truly we ought to... Continue Reading →

Linger.

Fear and condemnation are swallowed up by hope and acceptance. Your countenance becomes wildly refreshing. You exude peace, passion, goofiness, and fun. When... Continue Reading →

Fiat mihi.

5.15.2020 Dear dad, I am struck by the sensation of being stuck in a room in which the door seems to be inching closed. The room appears to have strange drawings on the walls, pictures or carvings, almost, of the likes of windows and doors. Not the kind you might see today in our modern... Continue Reading →

Swag.

4.29.2020 Dear dad, It rained incessantly today. Every time I thought it was letting up and there was an opportunity to go for a walk with the dogs, it would start pouring. It honestly made me kind of restless and annoyed. What business do I have being angry at the rain, though? Usually, I quite... Continue Reading →

Just tears.

4.4.20 Dear dad, Mom and I watched the movie “Just Mercy” last weekend. Gosh let me just say Michael B. Jordan is so attractive. Dang it. I wasn’t sure how he would be in this movie as an intellectual versus a high-octane professional athlete as in the Creed movies. The suit took a bit to... Continue Reading →
