Christmas is complex for me. It’s a journey through painful nostalgia, colonised history, the morality of forgivness & questioning where I really belong.
I thought the activists who approached me wanted to heal the wounded. I was wrong. There’s no healing when there is hate.
‘Harriet the Spy’ is about a 11 year old girl who is gagged by family & system and forced into therapy. Reading helped me crystallise my own identity crisis.
I read ‘Carrie’ by Stephen King. In the same week, I received an invitation to a school alumni meet.
