We’re taught to trivialize our bodily sensations because we’re afraid of suffering, eros, or narcissism. So we close ourselves off to our deepest yearnings, our desires for love and freedom, our hunger for expressing from the deepest parts of ourselves. More

I had invited black folks to crash the private upper middle class party that was going on and it was just not wanted. Really, I was quite bereft for a while, feeling foolish and naïve. More

I settle in to the taxi, hoping to get a bit of work done before my upcoming meeting. As the driver begins pulling away from the curb, I open my briefcase and take out a folder. Even as I try to settle in to my papers, I can see from the cabbie’s face in the rearview mirror that he wants to talk. “So, whatta you in town for?” he asks.  “I’m giving a speech. A presentation to some business people,” I say, hoping to make it sound uninteresting so the driver will leave me alone.  He doesn’t take the hint. “Oh yeah? What’s it about?” More
