My last installment of The By and By @ Oxford American is called Try and Try and Try. Writing for OA is a true honor. Beautiful magazine, beautiful ppl. And this dreamy artwork is “The Weary Moon” by Edward Robert Hughes.
“I have a naturally buoyant personality, but as I write this, it is gray and cold and I am identifying far too closely with Solange singing about being weary of the ways of the world. But stubbornly, I’m identifying even more with her singing, I’m gonna look for my glory yeah. I’ll be back real soon, reminding me of Psalm 71:14, but as for me, I will always have hope. Hope for better translations, hope for this world, hope for quiet spaces, hope for light and pages turning. Hope and hope and hope for learning from our past. Hope for knowing the stark difference between when to speak up and when to listen.”
