I love black people. I love the way melanated skin absorbs sunlight and has an ever so slight glow afterwards. I love the way dark skin glistens and radiates light when misted with sweat or is caressed with a slight sheen of coconut oil.
I love color. Not quiet, subtle, muted colors; but bright, bold, loud, colors that scream!
I love light. From the subtle changes in sunlight from season to season, to the glittering sparkles of light dancing across water like broken glass. I love light.
But I also love the night life. The dark, the music, the energy, the excitement. There’s an air of mystery and unknown possibilities.
And so the question became, how do i combine these things in a way that is authentically me?
