Talking writing/writing talking

I had the great pleasure to spend hours this afternoon and evening with Lynn Sweeting, fellow blogger and old, old friend. We talked about writing, about ideas and identity and the place of art in the shaping of identity, in the telling of our collective tale. We talked about emancipation and knowing who you are, about knowing your history and how it shapes you, and how it doesn't; we talked lies and truth and the only Bahamian generation that really believed that the freedom that they talked about between 1967 and 1982 was real.And we talked about the responsibility of the writer in this space. And we vowed to write.Here's to Lynn.
