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 →

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 →

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 →

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 →

Helheimr!

5.5.2020 Dear dad, I suppose you, and the people (I know, our letters are indeed seen by more eyes than our own), are probably tired of hearing about movies. The thing is, I just can’t help it. When I watch movies or read books, pieces of their stories inevitably and loudly speak to my own.... Continue Reading →

Damned nonsense.

5.1.2020 Dear dad, In this season of learning how to be a little girl, something else has come to my attention. I can’t think of being a little girl in the same way I think of being an athlete. That is, I can be both a little girl and an athlete but how I become... Continue Reading →

Pneúma.

4.30.2020 Dear dad, I’ve always wanted my life to be a movie. Maybe it’s why I enjoy listening to film scores so much. The instrumentals provide the backdrop, while I write the script. Music has such a power to wield our emotions and feelings. It often feeds our mood and reflects it. We all have... Continue Reading →
