Thought of the moment
I had to at last acknowledge that while theory is powerful, engaging with life is even more so.
I started to identify as a Womanist. I began thinking more deeply about what it means to inhabit a flawed world as a flawed being, while simultaneously striving for a richer, more sustainable, more life-giving future for all.
I fell in love.
I listened to these lines by Suheir Hammad over and over:
“…as we lay and love/ our touch is not free/ it comes with responsibility”.
