4 Year Love-iversary [an update].
Lizz Huerta convinced me I should, as a writer, have a blog. It’s not a thing I’d ever thought of & I started off apprehensive and slow. All I posted at first was this:
opening with gratitude, a 4-year update.
thank you to community for support, inspiration, sharing, light. here, a few of the folks who have lifted and lift me up & the work up, with so many more on the way.
To Chris Abani, teacher, mentor, fam whose support so crucial to the build, the craft, the path.
To Wayde Compton, mentor since then, who helped me see place, to retro-imagine, the piece by piece, the shapening.
To Ross Laird, mentor in the work work, reader who saw the four thematics, the undercurrent.
To Rina Alluri, sister by blood: nuff said.
