When I get co-reported stories between free world and inside reporters, man that is my favorite kind of work. When that work involves discussion of the centrality of religion to our everyday lives, I am beyond! Eid Mubarak, everyone.…

I'm probing my relationship to the QA+ community as a predominately-straight person who has had several romantic, non-sexual relationships. We called them friendships but they were more like deep partnerships with non-sexual physical intimacy. What's the word for that?
My people, @scalawagmag is the best place to work for and we are hiring!!!
As @Poppyinthewheat put it, "The very best poems are incantations, ways of telling the truth, and sharing whatever gospel the moment demands." We're serving up new Southern poems all #NationalPoetryMonth. Catch up on our mixes & RSVP for our 4/29 event 🎶…6

Courage humility and cheekbones. Three favorite qualities in a person.
You have to know where your power lies at the end of the day. My personal power is in intensity, performance, joy, the color red, candor, an eternal perspective, a smile as wide as my face, and my global ability to thrive. All these, resources from the ultimate Source.
04/08/2022 On your altar I burn my need, burn my fear on top of your body until allwe are left is love. The holiness you spoke of through the 1st John and the last who sat with me on the roof as I learned again to ease into ease—is this it? #NationalPoetryMonth

04/06/2022 x's and o's exes and ohs I dot my eyes I cross my legs. I ovulate. Today I'm a whole alphabet underwraps. I spell, I spill the moon inside my pants. I punctuate every season between milk and blood. #mutterings #NationalPoetryMonth
04/05/2022 Alone always, I cannot unclasp the necklace of green stones. I sleep adorned, unseen. #mutterings #NationalPoetryMonth

I’d love to be able to situate the modern fight for Abolition within a Christ-oriented framework. I’d love to be in discussion with folks around this.
So grateful to be a part of this conversation with @Poppyinthewheat and @wearepushblack on why police reforms have always and will always fail, and why #AbolitionNow is the only way to protect Black lives. Check it out! #DefundPolice #AbolishPolice…

"The subtlety achieved through techniques of abstraction is masterful, seeming as effortless as a dancer in motion. Yet, Baghramian never fails to remind us that beneath the skin, there's a body at work, a leg threatening to quiver, a sculpture teetering off balance."

So everyone can have boundaries except God?
When it comes to mental health, our generation has become well-versed in stating our boundaries and diligent in requiring others to respect those boundaries if they want continued relationship with us.

20. Don't get lost in the infinite. You've planned, talked and dreamed about what you want to do. Good. But now you must take the leap. There is no limit to the things you won't know. The best time to act was yesterday. The next best time is now.

11. You're going to hurt people that you care about. A few of them won't forgive you and you will lose them. You will be an ass, selfish, petty, narcissistic, and short-sighted. Sometimes you will realize this. More likely others will. Those that call you out;Keep them around.

4. You cannot have it all. The tragedy of life is that we want multiple things but often they run counter to each other. The choices you have to make will demand sacrifices - career takes time away from family, great art comes at the cost of security. Our options aren't free.
Retweeted by Alysia Harris, PhD
3. You will pay a hefty price for not living life as society demands But remember that society and community are not the same. Society is a large, transactional force ; community is association. You can withstand societal pressure by building and nurturing a community.

"How can I give back what was never mine, how can I say 'I' and separate myself from what animates me, a self I claimed because I was wind wilt, ... I was made to be consumed, my highest use is to lose myself in the appetite of God" - @Poppyinthewheat
