From Now On

 

The elec­tion of the 45th Pres­i­dent of the Unit­ed States did not go as I antic­i­pat­ed, or hoped.  In the two weeks fol­low­ing D.T.‘s elec­tion, we’ve seen a swell in hate crimes, the appoint­ing of white nation­al­ists to chief cab­i­net posi­tions, and a promise to destroy insti­tu­tions which serve all peo­ple in the US, not just the rich.

The call to hide, to keep our heads down, is entic­ing.  But I can’t do it.  I’ve nev­er been good at stay­ing silent.  I’m too old now to shut up.  You get what you get.

 

Wise words from a wise woman.

Wise words from a wise woman.

 

Toni Mor­ri­son wrote these words when W. was reelect­ed.  You can (and real­ly should) read the whole inter­view HERE.

I’m still processing/grieving/railing against the elec­tion results.  I hope to have more words soon.  But I’ve been think­ing of you, all of you, and what kind of world we want to have … and how we fight for it in the com­ing months and years.  One way is with our art.

Be well, speak out, stand strong, cre­ate.
