29 Aug On the Palms of His Hands..

I'm not much of an artist. Fact is, I have not one artistic bone in my body. But, attending a church conference a few years ago, I felt unusually drawn to a lively discussion on Christian artists. The speaker was a good friend of mine, and I had...

18 Feb Nakisisa’s Flight

It’s dark, under here. And scary. And hot. There is a spider at the corner, near my left eye, sitting still, staring at me. I’m too scared to move, so I keep my eyes firmly on it. I can hear Baba coming. I don’t know what time it...
