Enola Holmes

Paint your own picture, Enola. Don’t be thrown off by other people.

Just Mercy

I now know that hopelessness is the enemy of justice. Hope allows us to push forward even when the truth is distorted by the people in power. It allows us to stand up when they tell us to sit down. And to speak when they say, “Be quiet.” Through this work I’ve learned that each of us is more than the worst thing we’ve ever done. That the opposite of poverty isn’t wealth. The opposite of poverty is justice. That the character of our nation isn’t reflected in how we treat the rich and the privileged, but how we treat the poor, the disfavored and condemned.

Work It

Love is happening all around us. We just have to look for it.

The Kissing Booth 2

“Life throws curves at you, you think it’s moving one way, and suddenly realize it’s heading in the opposite direction.”

The Half of It

Love is messy. And horrible and selfish and bold. It’s not finding your perfect half. It’s the trying and failing. Love is being willing to ruin your good painting for the chance at a great one.

Brooklyn
