Before there was support or precedent, Toni Morrison was there, writing her heart out in her car, on her way to an editor's job where she championed other writers. She is and always will be a miracle. Read every one of her words.
Though thankfully prepared remarks were not required (I still get so nervous I lose all my saliva), when I received the news of this Honorary Doctorate, Yale asked me if I had any words to share with the graduating class: I wish you work you would want to do, even if you were not paid, and friends who are chosen family. Then you can withstand all the storms of life and become who you uniquely are.
Mother’s Day is coming up and these great bracelets by @birdandstone are here just in time. Most exciting is they will donate 10% of all proceeds to the ever-essential @feministcamp! Purchase at the link in my bio. I often say I see “mother” as a verb: as in to be mothered and to mother — ah, then the very best of human possibilities come into our imaginations. And we are all able to mother, whatever our sex or our age or our abilities. To mother is to care about the welfare of another person as much as one’s own. To mother depends on empathy and thoughtfulness, noticing and caring. To mother creates the only pairing in which the older and the younger, the stronger and the weaker, are perfectly matched. It reminds us all, whether we are young or old, male or female, of the possibilities that lie within us and that we cherish in others.
Finishing up tour for the 3rd edition of Outrageous Acts with a #tbt to 1983 on the road for its original release. My airplane “desks” are still this messy!
3rd edition out today with a new foreword by my dear @emmawatson. I had a lot of fun updating it, hope you’ll feel the same reading it!
I will never quite get used to the idea of watching myself on stage, but Patricia Kalember does a great job! Please join me in welcoming her to the @gloriatheplay cast. And thanks to @melodiousmsm for the photo.
