This website is dedicated to my second mother,
Anna Mae Roy, and to Mrs. Brown and the St. Edwards girls.
All of you were the best of us.
"This is precisely the time when artists go to work. There is no time for despair, no place for self-pity, no need for silence, no room for fear. We speak, we write, we do language. This is how civilizations heal." - Toni Morrison
