“I feel super supported here, but I left Pittsburgh as soon as I could. I moved back as a grown up and already knew what my practice was. I already knew what kind of existence I wanted to have. I just want to be able to do what I love to do and be able to take care of my family doing that.
“I have a kid now. When you have a baby, the universe opens up to you. I just see things differently.
“I grew up loving sci-fi and fantasy, comic books, and that whole kind of superhero, magic, and witch stuff. The superhero thing is describing exactly black people. The things they had to withstand and survive from, is totally like there are superheroes. I’m a black woman, and I was raised by black women, and the most magical people to me are black women. We’re the mothers of humanity. Now I’m in this mystical, natural, more organic space, and those are the things I’m really thinking about.”
