Peace peace fam! I typically do not post more than once a week but I am having a sudden burst of creative energy lol. I have tons of time on my hands since I am no longer employed full time. Today marks my 10th day being down south taking care of my mother. She is doing awesome (though she doesn’t feel like she is) and I am finally beginning to feel more balanced. I wore my white feather in my hair all day yesterday. Ma’at greeted me with open arms this morning. And although my mother is Christian, she has seen my altar and has yet to question me about it. I prepared my offering with love last night and woke this morning feeling much better.
We have had some visitors over as well. My mom was very pleased to see one of her old friends as well. I have had people come up to me since I have been here and tell me they are happy that I am back in the town. Their kind words mean a lot. My presence is felt here and all things happen for a reason. I have huge plans and wonderful intentions for the people in this town and surrounding areas. I am also very happy to be able to help my mother at this delicate time in her life. No man knows the hour. I just want to be sure to be present for her now that she really needs me.
I have come to realize that the experiences, the trials, the triumphs, the day to day, the meeting of new people, the connections—they are all tied together. We should look to each day as an opportunity to grow, progress, and to bring light into this world. I am an artist, a writer, a poet, a revolutionary. I am a mother, sister, soon to be wife, a daughter. Let us all be who we were born to be—the very best US we can possibly be. I am well on my way—-finally.
Peace, Love, & Light,
Ashaki Ma’at Mirembe Ali
