Despite my anxieties, upon returning to Syracuse, I feel more assured in my work as a writer and dare I say – oh god, do I really dare say? – my work as a reluctant activist. Other people may not quite see what I’m doing. But I think, looking back, it will be coherent. And if nothing else, perhaps I validated some very lovely human beings, “with loves and hates and passions just like mine.”
In short: You can’t please everyone, so you might as well please yourself. You can’t speak the truth, so you might as well speak your truth, and accept, sooner rather than later, that it’s going to be a very lonely ride.
