Hi, Bryan “the untaggable” Thompson.

I have been sitting on a piece written in a similar vein for about 3 weeks now. It’s wiling away the hours in my Drafts folder. I went in tonight and made a lot of progress but I was stuck trying to figure out how to describe systemic racism, along with a quick and dirty way for people to diagnose themselves. I think you did just that, and did it well, because you jogged my memory about a story someone I look up to and respect immensely told me a couple of years ago. As fate would have it, the details of his situation segue-way right into the final topic of my piece beautifully. :)

That means I may actually one day finish the damned thing and hit publish. Who knows?

Thank you for inadvertently pushing me through that block. It’s so appreciated, especially since we’ve never even met. Lol. :)

I still don’t know what I want to be when I grow up, but I know I want it to be spelled right and punctuated correctly. I guess that’s something.
