A Sistah writes on a friendship card to her Sistah friend, Almost Winter in Atlanta 1998.
Nana, Its unusual that a card with so many words, speaks the song of my heart, or maybe when I was standing at the card rack, waiting for my car to go through the car wash
maybe I was right - This one could only be on the planet from me to you.
So as you go deeper inside your knowing to bloom above the stars walk on the ocean floor Ill fly with/near you, sharing each fragile breath grinin. Thanks and praises for our friendship and love. BarabaraO
To Sister Nana,
Thank you for your generosity and tenacity! I am glad at heart to have a wider circle for storytelling about your lifes work: keeping tradition strong and people in accord with the Divine. Sister Bridgette Rouson
Nothing is truly intimate outside of ritual, says Sobanfu Somé. Like many other Africans, the women of Dagara do not sleep with their men. Women need to sleep together, to be together to empower each other...then if they meet with men, there is no imbalance. Tribal women not only sleep and live together, they join together for group rituals.
