Without doing anything, things can sometimes go more smoothly just because of our peaceful presence. In a small boat when a storm comes, if one person remains solid and calm, others will not panic and the boat is more like to stay afloat.

Meditation is participatory observation. What you are looking at responds to the process of looking. What you are looking at is you,and what you see depends on how you look.

Let’s remedy this.

But of course. We just need a ‘when’ and a ‘where’

Pour in the support, and keep up the positivity.

Marcus Books, the legendary (one of the oldest Black owned Book stores in the entire US) is in trouble of closure. First started in SF, then opening a branch in Oakland…I along with countless young people of all races trekked to this store, probably first as a child with my mother, then as a college student at SFSU studying Egyptology among other things, and now as a parent/adult when looking for Black picture books. Reblog this so the petition gets signed, but note that places like these are important landmarks of knowledge and self determination.

It should also be noted that Marcus Books is the only book store i know of (and i’ve called many) that has an Extensive collection of Childrens Books, Picture Books, and Comics featuring African and African American children.
