I’m not sure how much time I will have for this space over the next several months, but I don’t want to entirely neglect it. I thought I might share a poem or essay with you on Fridays which reflects what I’ve been working on during the week.
This week I’ve been reading Alice Walker. I had only ever read The Color Purple before, several years ago. I am immersing myself in her poetry and personal accounts of her activism and bearing witness in Gaza, in particular. “Working Class Hero” is a poem I keep wandering back to, to reimmerse myself in its vast tenderness.

Happy weekend, everyone
