Swallowing the Sun

I’ve realized that the more anxious and helpless I feel about the horrific state of the world, the more hyperbolic my writing becomes. I feel compelled to stretch my imagination as far as it will go and even further still, but I usually end up with the same “colossal Black woman towers over the world” images, which I fear are still unsatisfactory, in light of the tired and tiring tropes around Black women’s supposed superhuman strength, or Black women’s diminished humanity in relation to just about anyone else. 377 more words

My godmother has published her new book!

I had the privilege of reading the pre-publication manuscript, and I loved it. (Of course, I am a little biased *grins*.) A lot of practical information is inside, including tips on tools, sacred spaces, rituals and correspondences. 21 more words
