quote Sometimes in black communities we forget that black girls are girls, not little women. My friend then shared with me her own story of being sexually abused and ending up pregnant and in need of an abortion at age 12 because her family members irresponsibly left her with a male family friend. The first time a 12-year-old black girl ever told me she had been raped, I, too, was 12 and she was a friend. The second time, I was a 22-year-old teacher, and the 12-year-old was my student.

I realize now, having heard a version of this story, yet again, that as gut-wrenching as these stories are, among black girls they are not uncommon; they are not even remarkable. So many of the highly educated black women you see went to hell and back before reaching the age of 18. Education has become our drug of choice.

[…]For black girls, educational achievement is not always the best indicator of a stable, happy home life. For me, education offered a goal and reward structure that was predictable and that I could control, simply by doing what was asked of me. In the midst of so many things I could not control, school was attractive. I imagine that for many black girls the narrative is similar.

Wow bukowski so profound do you also bathe fully clothed you dickhead. “Oohh isn’t it funny that a person will eat when they’re hungry but will duck if you throw an apple at their face”

Not counting Ask Saint Walker, I think I’ve drawn my Adara-Saint Walker design more than the original one. Yeah.
In other news, I’m still in a creative morass. =|

Here’s further proof that anyone can (and should) cosplay their hearts out. Seattle-based photographer David “DTJAAAAM” Ngo took this awesome portrait during the recent 2014 Emerald City Comicon:

"Olive Oyl and Popeye prove that it’s okay to cosplay at any age."

A tiny flame gazes down upon the wick it stands on and contemplates life. Memory is difficult, the immediacy of the present is so strong.

The flame gazes into the seemingly infinite gloom, straining to witness all it possibly can. Books, a bell, wood. Smell, a clock ticking.

The flame stretches and dances to explore the depth and breath of its existence, mesmerized by everything it is, by everything it is not.
