I was in Oregon to see my kids two days ago.
Everything about seeing my kids was beautiful.
Other things were not. The loneliness I felt for not being of a place that used to be my place ran so deep it felt sharp.
I wanted to leave as soon as the the pain showed up.
I had already paid for all my Air B and B stays, so I had to…stay.
I had to live and breathe and be…through the pain and the joy, both too painful to handle.
I watched a video from America’s Got Talent with Nightbirde. It shook me loose.
Not only because she’s fighting cancer like I am, but because she bares her soul.
Behind the video for Nightbirde was this incredible song by Joy Oladokun. Joy is INCREDIBLE. She’s this generation’s Tracy Chapman. No, I didn’t invent that saying.
Enjoy. Let these women sing the truth to your soul.
There is NOTHING and I mean NOTHING superficial about either of them.
Their work stands for itself.
