I’m back folks! It’s been nearly three weeks since I last posted. To be honest the acquittal of George Zimmerman had a profound impact on me psychologically. The combination of Zimmerman getting off and the various reactions to it truly knocked the wind out of me. I didn’t have the desire to write. For the first time in my life I didn’t even want to read. I was consumed with grief and anger.Slowly but surely I’ve managed to pull myself back from the brink. I took a brief and desperately needed vacation. My anger is still present but has simmered enough for me to write again. I hope to put up a number of posts this week as I have much to get off my chest. Stay tuned.

A native Seattleite and recent East Coast transplant, I have been interested in politics, religion, and race from the day I saw “The Autobiography of Malcolm X” on the bookshelf belonging to my BFF’s mom back in 1991. While my zealotry has thankfully diminished with maturity, I remain the deep thinking, passionate, and humble woman I have always been. I reside in the suburbs of NYC with my husband, daughter, and our two feisty but deeply loved cats.
