apropos of nothing….


I hail from a long line of sturdy, hard-working people. Strong women and men who gave zero fucks about societal norms. Because they persisted and resisted, I am here. They haven’t all been on the right side of history, but I’m doing my damnedest to make up for those times that they weren’t on the right side of history.

There are days when it’s hard to remember that I’m here on purpose and to put my hands on gratitude for my life. Then I think about the Brown’s, Blevins’, Joneses, and McSwain’s….my spirit gets a boost.
