week 38 on the farm - exercise imagination, exorcise oppression

Have you heard?!


It's time to read 'Emergent Strategy' by adrienne maree brown. I bought my copy at Source Bookseller on Cass. The quotes below are from the book, which I've found to be a resonant verbalization of the lifestyle of love, justice, and togetherness-seeking that grabbed me and keeps me grounded here in my life in Detroit.

"If the goal was to increase the love, rather than winning or dominating a constant opponent, I think we could actually imagine liberation from constant oppression.

Maya Angelou's 'On the Pulse of Morning':

 

"Each new hour holds new chances

For new beginnings.

Do not be wedded forever

To fear, yoked eternally

To brutishness.

 

The horizon leans forward, 

Offering you space to place new steps of change."
