This is what I believe:

That I am I.
That my soul is a dark forest.
That my known self will never be more than a little clearing in the forest.
That gods, strange gods, come forth from the forest into the clearing of my known self, and then go back.
That I must have the courage to let them come and go.
That I will never let mankind put anything over me, but that I will try always to recognize and submit to the gods in me and the gods in other men and women.
There is my creed.
-D.H Lawrence


Cole’s newest and dearest word. It’s not a word that’s unfamiliar to me, I’ve heard it many times before and it made me cringe… even though it wasn’t directed at me. Last night, after work, Yaya is all excited to show me Cole’s new word. I look at Cole, and Yaya tells him to call me by my new name. He smiles, looks right at me, and then says “Mamasita”. I’m rasing a Little Mexican Pimp! I love it!
