So last week Literary Phenom, Nobel Prize Winner, and Black Excellence Personified Toni Morrison celebrated her 85th birthday. This woman has been a guiding light for me both as a speculative fiction author and as a human being.
Case in point:
As the kids say: CHALLENGE ACCEPTED!!!!!!
And as the kids also say: FLAWLESS VICTORY
Ms. Morrison, because of you I can, I have and I will. Thank you for being the guiding light for myself and countless others. Happy birthday and God bless.
