I’m still here, gimme a hot min

So yeah, I’m on lock-down like the rest of you.

But that  does not mean you get shitty poetry/whinny posts from me.

I’m cooking up some nice, spicy words that can spin possibilities.

Dreams of what’s life like post self-distance.

So much I write about is about intimacy.

What can I do to bring you into my space, spiritually?

Stay tuned.

Stay safe and healthy.

I believe him.

Lot of anger directed towards him for saying this, but 1) I believe him because 2) he’s finally telling us the truth and 3) we don’t pay attention to how stress and anxiety affects our physical health and our intimate relationships. I did the opposite–I shut down my emotional life and intimate relationships and ignored the pain–and I ended up having a grand mal seizure. He’s in a dead marriage that probably died when he and Hillary embarked on their dual political ambitions. Yes, I’m saying the majority of their marriage has been a political show. Wedding rings in such a space are props at best. He needed a therapist, not a college aged intern aka mistress. He’s clearly attempting to making amends, which suggests to me he’s in therapy and is at a stage when he can be truly honest–at least about that. I predict a divorce or legal separation is coming.

Pray for Bill, Monica, and Hillary.

‘We Were the Undeserving Throngs’

From Chronicle Review:

Being a Black Academic in America

In the wake of the scandal, The Chronicle Review asked graduate students, junior professors, and senior scholars what it’s like to be an African-American academic today.

“The first thing I learned at college was that as a black student I had ruined college for everyone else.”  Read more here.

I’ll be back in a future post to talk about my experiences from grad school in New England to mid-career at an HBCU in the midst of many micro and macro aggressions along the way.
