This has been an insanely busy week for me, as reflected in my below average blog postings, but I managed to make room for a friend who wanted to write a profile about me for his writing class. The interview ended up lasting 4 hours over a two day period, but I'm so glad I did it. It was the most comprehensive view of my life I'd ever shared or even thought about internally.
The questions were focused around the origins of my interest in comedy and politics. I told him things I'd never mentioned to anyone, like my experience in an all-black, conscious Boy Scout troop and our trip to a Masonic temple in DC to discuss its use of African imagery. (the Mason's were like, "African?? oh Noooo, those are universal symbols").
Answering his questions got me to appreciate even more the life I have, the family I have and really just everything. I'll let yall know when his profile is in a publication somewhere.
