“Let your memory break open.”
– Joy Harjo
The longer I live, the more deeply I learn that love — whether we call it friendship or family or romance — is the work of mirroring and magnifying each other’s light. Gentle work. Steadfast work. Life-saving work in those moments when life and shame and sorrow occlude our own light from our view, but there is still a clear-eyed loving person to beam it back. In our best moments, we are that person for another.
– James Baldwin
“Writing is finding the courage to discover and embrace our truth, and then become the master of that truth..”
– Laura Lentz
