Challenge Accepted

There is a black and white challenge circulating on social media between women in support of one another, tasking us to post a black and white photo of ourselves. I was tagged by a sweet being, and felt my response was worthy to share here as well. Much of my work centers the wounds of [...]

Jogging While Black

We must learn to be in the world. Not of the world. Buddha said this. Earlier this morning, I posted two things on my social media regarding the tragic murder of the young black jogger killed in Georgia by what I see otherwise as three white men acting as modern day slave patrols.
