Chimamanda inspires me. She and I are around the same age. More importably, she’s had the courage to tell her stories, while I have not.
Over the time I’ve had this blog, I’ve wrestled with the idea of telling every random story that’s on my mind. Some of them seem like a departure from the pop culture/TV/spirituality paradigm that I’ve set up. Yet I know that silence has done me a disservice. There are too many singular stories floating around. By speaking, I know that I have the power to offer a new level of reality to the limited narratives that exist.
