I had a pretty busy week, so I didn’t read much.
However, today has been the best Sunday in a long time. Being outside in the Sun has many wonders. 🙂
Here’s the book highlight for this week:
This book’s core is a story of belonging and searching for belonging. The author touches on many sensitive issues, so several trigger warnings: racism, death, suicide (ideation), molestation, abuse, etc. While reading, I was reminded of certain incidents/experiences I read from Uncultured: A Memoir by Daniella Mestyanek Young and Indian Horse by Richard Wagamese.
One of my favourite phrases from the book was, “Whiteness has all of us speaking in tongues”. I think it speaks true for most people of colour as they try to navigate spaces not originally designed for them and find a sense of belonging.
I finished the book questioning my decision to live where I do. Often, violence is perpetrated under the disguise of aid/help.
See you again next week!
