It’s Not The Load That Breaks You Down; It’s The Way You Carry It

It’s Not The Load That Breaks You Down; It’s The Way You Carry It.

At a future point I will provide a bit of personal context that went into my decision to do a reblog of this post by Kamilah Aisha Moon.  No, nothing like what she described, but more like the journey I took in 2010 to become much more aware of the importance of my health to my survival and the survival of my writing and research.  But first, read Moon‘s essay by clicking on the link at the beginning of my post and think about health, Black women, and Afrofuturism  When I post my response here, it will also be cross-posted in my new blog Professor’s Lounge. Yes, I am launching a blog just on academia in the very near future.
