I was woke.

Now I know it’s easier to talk woke than be woke.

I am lucky.

By most parameters, I am privileged. I want the relatively lesser privileged to have it as easy as I’ve had it. For that to happen, people like me might need to take less space. Dunno how I feel about that, but I want to be prepared.

Be a part of my journey.

Come walk with me. I promise to take you down some interesting paths. When you’re tired, drop out. Join me again further down the line.
