  1. I remember when you highlighted to artwork for the book on your site before you wrote the book. Amazing cover. Now, I viewed your video of the reading. Comments. 1. I think that at this stage in our development at sacred beings we may need to examine how our remembering the past could actually be contributing to its repetition. People of color are some of the most diverse and fascinating beings in our universe and I’m sure many if us have evolved beyond the pain if the “N” word. And the cover of your book speaks to me – what concepts and histories are we accepting about ourselves? Many people if color are the inspiration behind many ideas, including the white screen in this technology, yet some are still not allowing ourselves to evolve beyond the legacy of overcoming pain and being the perpetual victim. We are so far ahead of that experience. I am hoping that we can being to see ourselves as privileged all in the same. And the last line resonated with me “it never heals” wow. I can’t even imagine that as part if anyone’s life experience. But I’m glad you had the courage to speak it…it tests the soul for sure! Your book has encouraged me to 1. Write a book called blackstones and rainbows – how we give birth to challenges that help us grow and give birth to our next era. 2. To open an artists in residence center to help introduce those born from scar psychology into privilege. I’m not yet vegan. But i have eaten vegetarian food prepared by privilege chef and scar chef and there is a big difference! And preparing meals IS an art form. I plan for your books and Terrys books to be apart if the arts library. We need to continue doing the work that separates black from pain. And although Im glad that you focus on justice in recent black crime issues, I’d really enjoy seeing you work with classes that introduce vegan eating directly to newbies. In our current truth, there us no underclass or unprivileged. That’s all echoes. And as um witnessing glass and steel structures growing all around me, along with ancient stone temples and hones, I ask myself – what is our legacy? We birthed this technology – how will we use it? What ripples in the universal pool will we respond to? How will we free ourselves from an unbalanced economy? Truth- there us More than enough. Always was, but even more so now. You are such a blessing. Also, lived the chicken clock in the background. Made me smile and laugh. Don’t go to far down this path. Pull back into the other direction and expose new opportunities for vegan lifestyle and embracing a blessed life. We are ready!
