The Guardian

TwitThis

I woke up this morning tired. Putting ice on my knee tired.

I went out to Ms. Coca's party last night.

Ali Shaheed played Electric Relaxation and I got hoarse from singing along.

I was checking my blog statistics this morning and noticed that I was getting
referrals from
The Guardian.

I clicked on the link and saw that The Guardian had linked to my
"If You Want to Change Society" piece under their Best of the Web section.

I had to blink back the water y'all.

Thank you to Latoya for the Racialicious cross links.

Thank you to all who read and comment. Thank you to the lurkers. I see you.

Thank you to the folks who e-mail me, who reach out and ask for advice,
who write and share how they are "on becoming a more human human",
or that they are "struggling with learning that their partner has a near
fatal disease and they just wanted to reach out".

bell and Audre speak out their being power in the margins, so there is nothing
like being recognized, publicly, for being yourself.

@ E & M

Thank you for your kind words of support.
I am reading Baldwin and I swear I felt my soul leave and return while sitting there on he train.

My head is twisted. I see why artist either get addicted or go crazy. Sometimes the weight can become too much to bear.
