This morning I was listening to a podcast by Bryan Stevenson, a recent AWTT portrait. Many of you know that he and his organization, the Equal Justice Initiative in Montgomery, Alabama, recently opened a new museum which tells two stories. One part tells the story of the ongoing systemic transformations of  racism in this country, from Slavery to Mass Incarceration.

What happened?

This was not a protest. It was a clarification.  A realignment.

It was not an aggrieved victim struggling to have her lonely voice heard as she implores power to hear truth.

It was power speaking to power. Legitimate power speaking to illegitimate power.

When I play with my grandson, we suspend the logic of reality. Toy dump trucks fly, giraffes talk with polar bears, gravity is a joke, a paper airplane zigzags twenty feet & has circumnavigated the Earth, an 18” high wobbly block tower is the Empire State Building. Mortality is a hiccup. Such is the logic of play, of silliness.
