Reboot

leave a comment »

One of my longtime friends mentioned something earlier on social media about how it was time for a reboot when it came to her life this month.

Since I’ve spent a good part of the last couple years writing in here, it got me to thinking about why I started writing here in the first place, along with some of the things I’ve written about.

And along the way, I came to the conclusion that I’m not tired of writing, but I am tired of writing about the parts of being black in America that make me unhappy and fearful of living and raising a son here.

My personal writing has gotten darker (and if you’re even familiar with my personal writing, then y’all know it gets pretty real there)–

–and yet, I’m compelled to keep going.

Just to see how far it goes. How dark it really gets.

On the other side of this coin is knowing I need some balance here, which is why this next move is going to hopefully help out with that.

More tomorrow.
