Venus Sings by Reza Rites

Month

January 2021

Sunday writing. Also, may I say: What a weird feeling it is to give/write/extend humanity to your villain. I’m like…what? How dare he fall in love! But if it’s love it’s love. Ugghhhhh. So many feelings.

About last night…

I cooked late and it was great. Guest chefs prepared the couscous and salad ingredients, but the pork chops, asparagus and plantains all came from these hands. Made with love…just for me.

MLK Day was the last time I danced, and boy do those 7 days feel far away. But between the gorgeous breathtaking colors I beheld earlier in the sky, and the enraging realities facing so many, I’ve got too many emotions trying to sit motionlessly when we all know movement is the answer. Join me in the stories if you need a workout buddy; love yourself another way if you just can’t today. Sunshine and laughter. – Reza Rites

Today I reflect on the time I was able to emote my sense of gratitude and purpose-alignment with Dr. King’s legacy – through poetry. Like King, I don’t want to lead my people into a burning house. Yet, also like King, I fear a path not soaked in the light of love. I am not naive to the hate; personally, it is just not my best tool.

Sunshine and laughter,
Reza Rites
