During my first trip to Bosomtwe, I remember becoming fixated on this stump. How she stood there - bare, decayed - barely above water. Yet in her death, she brought through new life. Providing the new with asylum - and hopefully the space to blossom.
On my search for freedom,
I found myself learning how to unlearn the structures and systems that were not for me, that made me forget where I came from, that buried my power.
I found myself learning how to observe again, becoming a student of the world and the pull-and-tugs of life.
I found myself learning how to release - creating space to love and to be loved.
I found myself in all of this
On my search for freedom.
