Thoughts on forgiveness and tenderness.
In a world where someone kills and wounds several people in a gay bar on the night before the Transgender Day of Remembrance, your words have helped me. Your analysis of Phillips' poem helped me understand it better. The world needs tenderness, forgiveness, acceptance so intensely in these days. Thank you for contributing to that energy.
This was beautiful. You do have a gift in the way you can help others also access words and the worlds they reflect and open up (in case you needed to hear that). Thank you.
To understand Carl Phillips is such a joy. To be able to understand hi and then walk so many of us through his words, with such care and tenderness is such a gift. I wish you always get to enjoy written words, the way you do. Really appreciate this whole post.
