There are seven books, that my Literary Executor also my Thing has been asked to oversee. The last book has two possible titles, and he will be the one organizing my writing , some of it going back to early childhood.
Only my Thing can do this as he is the only one who knows the TRUTH. The entire truth! I am making sure of this and as he is also the only man I have completely loved, I want him to do this.
I know I am not going to live forever, but I hope my Love for him does.; I hope he will always know how much I Love him.
A photo of me an d my Thing , a man I love so very much; he means more to me than jus about anuthign in this world.
I went through the fire for this man! yes, my natural waist length hair caught on fire, my how quickly it blazed, and in remeberance of that, Alicia Keys “Girl on Fire”, it was really the Fire of my passion for this man that I really want to commemoate!
How I look now, age 64, multiracual, no weave, no wig, no extensions =, and no relaxer ever in my life. Although half my hai rbirned off in a kitvhen gire, thsi is what rmains after half my hair buned off. My mother did not have hair like this; she ws always called, “The Little Black One” as she grew up in the southen USA in the 1930s. She hated her hair and did not want a child who would sffer as she did. Hence se sought my father so that she would have a child with the hair she always wanted. Tale a look at my essay, “Good Hair”, the hair my fahther had and his immigrant father, half Caucasian, and half Indian, from India Uttar Pradesh . The hai ryou see in teh photo pnly exemplifies just how much hair I had, hor afte rhalf burned off in a kitchen fire, this is what remained.
