This is one of the reasons I love living in Evanston (swipe left to see more). It is not a perfect place, by far, but EVERYWHERE you look there are BLACK LIVES MATTER signs and also HERE WE BELIEVE IN LOVE signs. They are in front of small houses and semi-mansions, apartment buildings and houses of worship...it just feeds my spirit, encourages me in struggle, to know that so many of my neighbors are on board with justice 🙏🏽

Lee Street Beach (Lake Michigan) within 15 mins walking distance of my house. Summer’s end...🥀

Here are copies (ones that DO NOT do them justice) of the Rashid’s photos ‘Jonathan’s Hands’ and (swipe left) ‘Jonathan’s Eyes’ mentioned in my former post.

I wish a photo accompanied this so you could see how beautiful these photographs are...

Today is the anniversary of my mother’s birth. She is no longer corporeal but she is everywhere in my life. She is in every success I have ever had, in the lullabies I sang to my children, in my recoveries from heartache. As Gina Breedlove once wrote about her mother - “she lives on inside of my spirit.” Happy birthday Mama! Amen.♥️

In Chicago’s ‘Chinatown’ with Maya, purchasing herbal teas and other herbs. (Swipe left)

TBT - 2014 trip to Greece. The last 6 photos are of doors on the Greek island of Skiathos. I fell in love with the beautiful doors all over the island. Rashid had an exhibit there and we went for the opening.

Working on a baby sweater. Love this color and the softness of this yarn. No, I’m not the one who’s pregnant. 😀

My puny little moon photo tonight...It was so much more beautiful in person. A full moon —- it conjures up love and luck, werewolves and other imaginary magic...
