This week was difficult. I won't pretend it was difficult for me as I've never had to worry about being in a car and being pulled over because I'm white. I've never feared that a traffic cop might kneel on my neck or, felt that I might find hatred just by leaving my house. I can only acknowledge that others feel that every day.
I'm 100% privileged.
My friends in Baltimore, and around the country are battling, and I am privileged.
I am lucky. I have an interview sent out in the world by the Writers and Words series in Baltimore (Maria Goodson)---where I read a few years ago. It really doesn't seem to matter much about what I am doing for myself these days, compared to what is going on, but I'm going to post----(Maria and Writers and Words are wonderful) and give all I can to be kind and treat others kindly.
Here's the link to find all the interviews---titled Five Burning Questions for Timothy Gager---turns out that they, in the scheme of things, aren't all that burning.
and I'll post it here
