Writer Devi S. Laskar, author of The Atlas of Reds and Blues, reads aloud Lucille Clifton’s won’t you celebrate with me, prior to reading her own work. Laskar’s post about Clifton led me into a rabbit whole of reading. Leaving me with the feeling that Clifton speaks directly to the soul.

I was reflecting on my own experiences and how they have impacted my life, shaping me into the woman I am today, and still ever-changing. I think of the inability to control certain circumstances, but also having the control to release what/who does not bring purpose to my life. Awareness of the self is the first step to making the changes you want in your life.

Prompt #5

What experiences in your life shaped you into who you are today? (Cultural, environmental, relational, etc.)
