a powerful piece Nicole! You just gained a new subscriber. In terms of your last discussion point 'have the courage to be misunderstood', that reminds me of a book that I really like called the courage to be disliked. I'd recommend it if you have not read it yet

Love the notion of having faith in your own curiosity and wonder as opposed to your own knowledge - it’s a good reminder :)

Thank you for your kind words :D and I would recommend Liner for highlighting in general - it's a tool I love

I highly recommend an extension called mymind. You get to save paragraphs, photos, and anything that is selectable on the internet.

I had no idea who Lucille Clifton was. I love discovering new writers through other writers. Once again, thank you for sharing
