Still Here

I been scared and battered.
My hopes the wind done scattered.
Snow has friz me,
Sun has baked me,

Looks like between ’em they done
Tried to make me

Stop laughin’, stop lovin’, stop livin’–
But I don’t care!
I’m still here!

Langston Hughes


I am profoundly grateful to those of you who have emailed, texted and called to inquire where I am and what’s up with the silence on bh.

Thank you for your love and concern.

Your kind words brought Still Here, one of my favorite Langston Hughes poems, to mind.

Long story short, I had an acute medical emergency last week that demands recovery time and generated some short term issues.

I am certain that I will write about it in the future, but for now, I assure you that I am still here and am humbled to know you noticed my quiet and care enough to reach out.

Thank you!

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah!

There was a time you let me know
What’s really going on below
But now you never show it to me, do you?
And remember when I moved in with you
The holy dove was moving too
And every breath we drew was Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah!
