“Still, Gyan was absolutely sure that she was proud of her behavior; masqueraded it about as shame at her lack of Indianness, maybe, but it marked her status. Oh yes. It allowed her that perverse luxury, the titillation of putting yourself down, criticizing yourself and having the opposite happen–you did not fall, you mystically rose.

Hey, Jo! I used to read your blog all the time and we shared comments once in a while. Nice to see that you are still keeping this place updated.

I only do a photoblog now due to my job and potential jobs in the future, so my current blog is protected. It hasn’t been updated in a couple years, though.

Hope all is well!
