I feel like a part of my soul has loved you
since the beginning of everything.

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,

the human race is born again.
