On a stoop. In BedStuy. Family, Friends, Collegues, Neighbors, Children, Strangers, from so many walks of my life, popped up and loved up on me so hard yesterday. I don’t (and many never truly) have the words to describe what yesterday was. But someone else said it perfectly: “it’s beautiful…to watch you… free yourself like that.” & I guess that’s it. So to all who celebrated loss, love, & triumph with me — to all who shared tears, laughter, and hugs with me — I simply say THANK YOU!
What a wonderful way to close out my last NY show of the summer. As I head to the West Coast for a while to work on some dope projects (I think y’all will love), I will hold on to this space y’all have fueled me with.
