"My country has caught on fire," she wrote. "I have been watching everything from home. It is like being in a circle of fire. I am inside while the fire is raging all around me on the outside, on the streets of Port au Prince."

Why oh why is there not an award, or something...anything...named in their honor? G.O.A.T.s!

I've seen this Morrison quote posted on Twitter TWICE today, BOTH TIMES with the last sentence lopped off: "It’s richer than being a white male writer because I know more and I’ve experienced more." WONDER WHY.

Lol. I try to be honest when they ask me questions. I said I can appreciate her, but it was an opportunity to mention the G.O.A.T.s like Salt-n-Pepa, Queen Latifah, & even Roxane Shante. That why the 'mom' part came in--that I'm old, old school. Cause old for them is the 2000s.

On a serious note, as an overcompensating (s)mother, I fight tooth & nail for writing & reading time. My hubs & kids are super helpful. The battle is w/ myself & constantly reminding myself that I absolutely cannot do it ALL. Or else, my body will remind me. 🤒

Will be very, very sick all week while hubs & kids are (conveniently) on winter break. Can’t do anything but eat, sleep, read, & write. *(Fake) Cough, cough.* *Evil grin.* *(Fake) Sneeze, sniffle.* *Retreats into mom/writing cave.*✌🏾
