Dearest Ocean,

I have been a silent admirer of both your words and photographs in the form each have been represented on this blog, for a number of months now. I do not remember how I discovered "Brothaluva Cafe" and naturally, it does not matter. What does matter is that it is now time for me to break my silence.

I am a 51 y.o. though really existing outsider of that expression of time--same gender loving/two spirited member of The African Diaspora currently living in Tucson, AZ while simultaneously making plans to return to my beloved home in Oakland, California. I am a spiritual teacher/guide/healer. I am a sacred activist. Ashé.

Eleven weeks ago I had the experience of bringing into my sphere of awareness an event that allopathic medicine calls "having a stroke." Because the hemisphere of my brain in which the stroke occurred is also the hemisphere that controls rationality and logic, the stroke happened to also be experienced by me as a spiritual awakening because the hemisphere of my brain which is more prone to host such events became immeasurably strengthened while its logic and rationale obsessed corresponding hemisphere was systematically experiencing "damage." Ashé.

I have been following the diary you have begun since receiving your cancer diagnosis. I support you in your current journey. I lift you up. I present you to the ancestors for a revealed highest good for you. I present you to my healing altar daily with the awareness that I have no idea what is the course of my own healing much less another brother's. I present you nonetheless because it is what I do. I embrace the divine surrendering that allows me to let go of any attachment to any specific outcome.

May you receive what you need during this time and may what you do not need be gently and peacefully removed from you.

Ashé. Namaste' Moyo Aflame. Om Shanti Shalom.
