As a white woman, waking up to the implications of her privileged existence, I marvel at the courage of those like Rosa Parks who stand up for what they know to be right and good.

I pray for the courage to step beyond the limitations of my own prejudices that I may become an empowering force.

Permission to write, paint, and imagine are the gifts I gave myself when chronic illness hit - a fair exchange: being for doing. Relevance is an attitude. Humour essential.

  1. I couldn’t agree more VJ. I have always been amazed by her courage and conviction, and inspired by the thought that one supposedly ‘simple’ act could spark huge change. I love what you said about praying for “the courage to step beyond the limitations of [our] own prejudices that [we] may become an empowering force.”
