Y’all – back in college I had the honor of editing a magazine called Roots and Culture with a brilliant young Peruvian writer named Daniel Alarcon. I thought he was as brilliant as could be. And his book of short stories is now out on Harper Collins and its beautiful and you need to get you some!!
go to amazon.com and search daniel alarcon. the book is called War By Candelight: Stories
in other news life is looking up. its spring and i went to sit in the park and my friend taught me to do a sun meditation and i heard desmond tutu and toni morrison speak the other day on the unlimited heart, compassion and reconciliation. i was thinking that there are things that are unforgiveable, but to see two people who have lived so long and seen so much, especially bishop tutu – to know what he’s seen and who he’s forgiven…he came and said thank you to the u.s. for their efforts in the anti-apartheid movement! to this shameful nation. but his grace is so unparalleled and visible. i was inspired to look at my relatively tiny dramas and let my heart become bigger. i feel humble and benevolent, its delightful.
and finally y’all need to sponsor me for the aids walk!!
go to: http://www.aidswalk.net/newyork/ and search adrienne brown or league of pissed off voters to donate.
