I feel like a part of my soul has loved you

since the beginning of everything.

Maybe we’re from the same star.

Emery Allen

contemporary author and poet



Here was peace. She pulled in her horizon like a great fish-net.

Pulled it from around the waist of the world

and draped it over her shoulder.

Zora Neale Hurston

Their Eyes Were Watching God

one of the pre-eminent writers of twentieth-century African-American literature

In every child who is born, under no matter what circumstances,

and no matter what parents, the potentiality of

the human race is born again.
