reflective writing - a collection of my own reflections, others' reflections & bodies of work that prompt me towards reflection
“the reason is, i think, the reason is that in order to be free—let’s look some facts of your life in the face—you have to look into yourself and know who you are, and decide what you want or at least what you will not have, and will not be, and take it from there. people are as free as they wish to become.” —baldwin, 86
"My huge failure was like the recapitulation of the experience of the race: I had to grow foul with knowledge, realize the futility of everything, smash everything, grow desperate, then humble, then sponge myself off the slate, as it were, in order to recover my authenticity. I had to arrive at the brink and then take a leap in the dark."
"When writing, it always feels like I’m writing toward these spaces of care, these spaces of freedom."
