“In a million years, when kids go to school, they gonna know: Once there was a Hushpuppy, and she lived with her daddy in The Bathtub.”
Over the holidays, I had the opportunity to sit back, relax, and watch movies. Beasts of the Southern Wild pulled me into the world of Hushpuppy in the Bathtub and forced me into a Sankofa/Satori moment that had me blubbering and crying like a baby.
I’m a rather private person and I usually only share my woes with very close friends and family. So, it is hard for me to publically disclose the fact that I haven’t been writing. Writing is one of the most important things in my life. If I’m not writing, I feel like I’m dying or dead inside.
