Before starting the blog I felt such anxiety about it. I knew it was part of my mission, but dreaded sharing my writing and my experience in such an intimate way with the great (or small) unknown (or known) audience. My ego was behind this too, since I have this warped idea that everything I write must inspire and transmit love and humility, and that I control the outcome.
The day following my mini-break-down about the blog with Mami, I went to mass. God had fun with me and said, “Write down, therefore, what you have seen, and what is happening, and what will happen afterwards” (Rev. 1:19). Laughing, I smiled and grabbed Mami’s hand. The Holy Spirit will be with me and is with me as I write you this letter, as I learn Creole, as I walk with you and our brothers and sisters in Jean-Rabel.
May we be present and embrace our journey.
