Adrienne Rich. My mentor of letters. My friend during those most emergent years of my life. A deep heart break...opening to remember her; how much her words meant to me when I needed them the most, as a young woman, a young lover of women. Two lines come to me and continue to recur: "Every woman's death diminishes me." And... "I believe I am choosing something now/not to suffer uselessly." There were thousands of others. She mattered a great deal to so many of us, women of color, queer women writing today. I will miss her embodied presence on this planet. Michelle, I send you every blessing and much love in this moment of such profound transition for the both of you.

I heard her speak at FSU in the 1970's as a Women's Studies student. Very powerful and a wonderful foundation for those of us who followed.
