“... I need to
Bring something fixed and fragrant
Into this uncertainty. I need to flame
Back the tatters of dreams past. I
Need to prove to myself that I can
Live the life I want, despite
Darkness, despite doubt, despite
Fear, and despite my sex. I am so
Tired of wondering when and how.
I am so tired of limping through this
World alone. I will build my life
With song and language. I am
Doing it now with hope and dreams,
Blessings and reprieves...”
Leah Umansky, The Barbarous Century

“... I can't remember the last time I thought it best
To stand so completely honest with the world, with myself. We lie.
It is so easy to lie, but I know that even lies have colors and they stand
Out against the dark.”
Leah Umansky, The Barbarous Century

“... This is the time where what we love is not what we say
or share or feel. Love something. You should love something
so intently that it becomes a destination.”
Leah Umansky, The Barbarous Century

“I'm a pioneer, motherfucker.”
