Episode 31 – Echoes of Juneteeth and letters to the Ancients

The business of Juneteenth?

For me? It is an ongoing action, a time for somber reflection, meditation and gratitude for the resilience of the human spirit. Bearing witness to the calls of “get over it” or “the past is the past” echo with the concussive force of cruelty and a reminder of one the most consistent traits of humanity:

“Man’s ongoing inhumanity towards man.” On Episode 31, I read from a letter that I wrote to my Ancestors and I reflect on another that I penned for my Uncle after his homegoing, as the realization of history repeating is an uncomfortable, but necessary truth.

Episode 33 – The crumbling of our humanity? As the Incense Burns 🔥

On this episode I touch on the crumbling of our humanity or the traumas of the pandemic. As I read from some recent work; join me as I wonder aloud if narcisscism is our default setting; the battles or the hard work of choosing ourselves and the notions of serving something greater than ourselves which leads into a lesson or some storytelling gifted to me by way of my Family.
