Weekend Wanders

I know the email for this assignment said to only write 1 to 2 sentences of why the piece we choose move us, but I felt it was important to share the whole story behind the piece that I selected.

I received a book called Words From a Wanderer by Alex(andra) Elle well over a year ago from part of this monthly subscription that I was apart of at the time.

When I first saw it I wasn’t the least bit interested in it and had planned on donating it to a local book store. Thing is – I could never bring myself to.

Finally, a few months ago, I took it with me to read while riding the Greyhound to visit a friend. And I fell hard for it!

So many pearls of wisdom and even a section at the end that allowed me a chance to write my own work – which I did šŸ™‚

My favorite lines from the Dear Self sections is from ‘Don’t be Afraid’:

“You are not that broken or that battered. You’re not that bruised and your spirit isn’t shattered.”

It serves as a reminder that my life may not be perfect, my growing up may have been rough, I have been hurt and made to feel less than, but dammit – I am still here!

My spirit is still strong and I AM strong enough to share what it is that I what to sing and say with the world.

Seeing one 'acceptable' troupe for fat black women like me was more than enough to entice me to step up and take a shot! ______________________________________________________________________________________________ After spending hours on stock pile sites and not finding the images of women that she wanted to see on her blog or book covers led K. McCoy to make more of her photography hobby. Besides shooting portraits, street and travel photography, K. McCoy would love to tap more into her creative skills and collaborate with cosplay artists as well as authors looking for their dream book covers.
