Toni Morrison’s pulse is precise and profound, drumming truth and poetry into the lexicon of American history — and we are made better by her words, and how she allowed us to grieve, to feel anger, to feel pain, and to survive, still. Most of us first read her novels in high school, navigating our porous, elastic imagination through her stories, and we were granted permission (perhaps for the first time) to travel boldly in pursuit of ourselves. For that, and so much more, we are grateful. You will be missed. “The pieces I am, she gather them and give them back to me in all the right order.” #icon #tonimorrison
“You have to go the way your blood beats.” Thank you for your heart and wisdom and words, happy 95th birthday to the greatest. #jamesbaldwin

“I started totally free and crazy and innocent. Now I’ve seen many films, and many beautiful films. And I try to keep a certain level of quality of my films. I don’t do commercials, I don’t do films pre-prepared by other people, I don’t do star system. So I do my own little thing.” Agnès Varda, champion of emotion, humor, integrity and doing your own little thing. Thank you. We will miss you.
