Even as the world judders, as long standing structures tremble and crack, as the tide of injustice and looming disaster flows on and on and on, may you find the pockets and circles, the chosen families and temporary autonomous zones in which you feel safe enough to let down your shields and reveal your true face, raw and shining. May you be bold enough. to speak the truths you were taught to hide–as a woman, as a queer person, as a Black or brown person, as anyone at all molded and shaped by the dominating culture that maims all our souls–and may your vulnerability be met with kindness, understanding, and respect. May you dare to believe that each honest word you speak breathes life into a web of liberation and resilience, a web rooting and stretching to hold us all through this great breaking open.
