Quotes by Alexis Pauline Gumbs  (?)

“May you study the pink of yourself. Know yourself riverine and coast. May you taste the fresh and the saltwater of yourself and know what only you can know. May you live in the mouth of the river, meeting place of the tides, may all blessings flow through you.”
Alexis Pauline Gumbs, Undrowned: Black Feminist Lessons from Marine Mammals

“I respect you as so much bigger than my own understanding. And me too. I don't have to be available to be eligible for breath. I don't have to be measurable in a market of memes. I don't have to be visible to be viable on my path. I don't have to be shy to be sacred about my time. There are only two things I have to do, my mom taught me, and I can do them in the company of my choosing. The company of myself, my living, my dead, my folks, my dreams. 1. Stay Black. 2. Breathe.”
Alexis Pauline Gumbs, Undrowned: Black Feminist Lessons from Marine Mammals

“and when you love. you let it go. you put it down. you show your shoulders what to do with sky. and love is how. and love is when. and love is why.”
Alexis Pauline Gumbs, Dub: Finding Ceremony
