express yourself

Express everything you like. No word can hurt you. None. No idea can hurt you. Not being able to express an idea or word will hurt you more. Like a bullet.

~ Jamaica Kincaid ~
Caribbean-American novelist and professor

I still choose my audiences carefully. And maybe no ideas can hurt, but how people behave as a result of an idea...that can hurt.

Lift your voice, as much as you wish. I'm listening.

I met Jamaica Kincaid in person...have a few signed books. She's amazing.
