“Love is never any better than the lover. Wicked people love wickedly, violent people love violently, weak people love weakly, stupid people love stupidly, but the love of a free man is never safe. There is no gift for the beloved. The lover alone possesses his gift of love. The loved one is shorn, neutralized, frozen in the glare of the lover’s inward eye.”

  •  Claudia, The Bluest Eye - Toni Morrison

UNI Presents: …of Her

“This woman.
This vessel, was not simply a vessel,
She was, and is,  both the message and the messenger of what needed to be said
Both the point of origin, and the voyage to wherever needed to be visited.
The voice of reason that urged the change of seasons no longer removed from it’s diaphragm.

I am. If you will.

Yes, we sat and discussed.
But further, The art of conversing lead to the conclusion that our lives are convergent.
Parts of a greater whole.
Somewhere along her words I found my soul and it said:

Go. Back. To. That. Thing. That. Begs. You. To. Revisit.

…and then, revise. If need be.
If not, let it be.
The catalyst.

Beyond surface conversation,
empty eloquence,
and beautiful rhetoric sits the truth.
Waiting to be courted.

Give me your hand, and we will dance.
… as we discussed.”

Part of the short film from Radio Music Society.

Because we did not create a grand body of work that would have taught girls and women new and visionary ways to think about love, we witness the rise of a generation of females in our late twenties and early thirties who see any longing for love as weakness.

— bell hooks, “Communion”

Welp, I’m disappointed (in jest!).
Esperanza is an amazing artist and woman, thank god her expression seems to know no boundaries.
