Lovely visit to Atlanta. Saw old and dear friends. Made new ones.

And there were also deep convos with two dear friends I’ve known for years. The sort for whom present-day messaging moments would never do when it comes to authentic presence/listening/hearing/being (KB and Nick Chiles, you rock, my brothers).

Thank you for being you, for completing sentences and asking needed questions that continued as I read Saidiya Hartman’s latest, a gift from For Keeps. Free of charge. Who knew? Indeed, “our” collective utterances can indeed be heard.”
