At work.
It’s cold as all ice in this dance studio. I’m in a blanket…at work. I don’t know what I’m doing here, but they’re letting me do it. We’re about to move (where we don’t know yet) because gentrification is a mofo and they’re turning our beloved Downtown BK into the new Lincoln Center *rolls eyes all the way back*. We have 3 months to find a new home. 
I’m moving too (again). Life comes at you fast, yo. Not sure about anything anymore but what I do know… it’s a cold, cruel world out there without a cosigner.* (and without wifi, beloveds)
I’ve been away because I haven’t quite learned the art of balance. Building with Blavity and Tea & Breakfast have taken away from building TIA, but that’s no excuse, right? Where’s my loyalty to TIA, to books and conversation, where’s my loyalty to myself?

Not sure what this post is about, but alas I’m about to click “Post”.
How do y’all juggle a full plate and still get sleep (and have a place to sleep)? Is it possible? Are we all just living in a cold world hoping that wherever we are there’s a blanket?

DONATE BOOKS NOW to the #Ferguson #fergusonOctober book drive @ 9191 West Florissant Ave, St. Louis, MO 63136 Suite 208.
this is just a sample of the hundreds of books they’ve received for the youth! we gotta educate & politicize the youth for this revolutionary movement, and they’re doing it out here (and i quote) “Panther style.”
I REPEAT: send books NOW (and whenever you can, they will receive indefinitely) to 9191 West Florissant Ave, St. Louis, MO 63136 Suite 208. (flyer coming next)

YASSSS!

The survival of African people away from their ancestral home is one of the great acts of human endurance in the history of the world.
