How the Government Attacks Political Opponents

"We have a nonprofit organization me and canon's own started blexit. Why did we get out of there by the IRS? Lexie didn't raise and it's all public record. Lexie didn't raise nowhere near the money that Black Lives Matter has raised. Why aren't they getting out of it? Patrice colors have to step down a cofounder of Black Lives Matter had to step down because they found out she was using donation money to buy mansions. Then she then they bind $1 million properties during her kid's birthday party at one of the properties, paying a baby daddy almost a $1 million. Another guy who just got busted, they're suing him. Because they claim that he stole money from the organization. When you look at it, they got $60 million or something they can't find. Michael Brown's family, Eric Garner's family, many people who family members have died and Black Lives Matter have raised money on, they're trying to sue Black Lives Matter. Because they got none of the money. George Floyd family didn't get a dime from Black Lives Matter. But they don't get out of it.

Black Lives Matter Executive Accused of 'Syphoning' $10M

"I got a list of them. They got all your favorite companies, PayPal, slack, we use slack our company. Comcast, Uber, a snap Shopify. We use Shopify on my ecommerce store. I mean, you go to Microsoft, Grubhub, DocuSign, DoorDash, I only want to talk about bumble 'cause none of y'all better be on the bumble. Go down the list, these major corporations, that's not even including celebrities. That's not they had so much influence around the world. And somehow black people found a way to mess it up. How in the work with that much power and influence, why couldn't a group of black people actually do something for black people? Why couldn't they clean up the inner cities, build the schools better, get kids a better education, somehow have a contingency of dads, community leaders, curbing crime in the inner city, they could have done something, they didn't do nothing but pimp y'all. Straight hoodwinked. Patrice colors. Step down until 2021. After they caught her, spending millions of dollars on mansions, then this dude, when she stepped down, she put him in charge. They claim that he didn't extract the $10 million from Black Lives Matter. In 2021, his company was paid $2 million.

Larry Elder Talks About the 'Uncle Tom' Documentaries

"Uncle Tom is all about the struggle of black conservatives throughout America from the time of slavery until right now that people like look at T Washington have always believed in hard work, accountability and becoming excellent. And his argument was that even in the face of racism, if you learn a skill, a job, a trade, as well as or better than somebody else, you will be rewarded because people want the best. They want cheap. They want good quality. They want things that work. When I was a kid, I used to spend summers, my moms ranch. And my mom, mom, farm, rather. My mom told me there was a black man who couldn't read or write, who was the best chimney maker in the south. And the way of determining a good chimney maker is somebody that does not order too many bricks because if you order too many, the guy that's ordering them has to pay for them and to make sure that Jimmy does not smoke. It's not leak. And she said he was always employed by all these white people that wouldn't invite him in for tea, but they'd invite him to their chimney because he was the best. And so there have been many examples of that. We explore that in Uncle Tom one about people that worked hard to learn the skills and learn trade even in the face of tremendous racism and Jim Crow still managed to succeed and to overcome. And then we talk about how this attitude has now been changed by these people like Jesse Jackson and Al sharpton and Patrice colors, the cofounder of Black Lives Matter, essentially telling black people that you're victims. Always victims. Eternal victims, if victims of systemic racism, enduring racism, foundational racism, to the point where it's changed the attitude of a lot of black people and the worst work ethic of a lot of black people and more importantly the family structure. With the welfare state, as I said, a million times, we've encouraged women to marry the government and we've encouraged men to abandon their financial and more responsibility. And now we have not a scandal, but a scandal and a crisis, Brandon, 85% of black 8th graders are neither mass nor reading proficient. 85%, that means 85% of black 8th graders are functionally illiterate. And the NAACP just had their annual convention and what are they talking about? Reproductive rights, voting rights, student debt, and police brutality. That's their agenda. And so if long as our so called black leaders are focusing on the wrong thing, the solution will forever be elusive.

Exposing the Charlatans of Black Lives Matter

"Well, Mike, I want to start out by just talking about Black Lives Matter. You know, we've heard of the controversy of Patrice colors and a spending of Black Lives Matter and that to me is the smoke. I mean, that is the fire, the blaze and the fire, but the smoke, which is what kills most people in these fire situations according to my father who was a firefighter. The smoke inhalation is what kills people. So I want you to dive into for the audience the smoke inhalation effect of the residual effect of what Black Lives Matter has done, not just necessarily the financial issues. Yeah, I'm very happy you put it that way because what I always say is that look, apparently there's grift involved, they have bought these mansions and Toronto and Southern California, in other places. But to me there will always be grifters. This is actually a feature not a bug of communism, brezhnev and andropov all had their hunting villas called dashas in the Russian countryside, Fidel Castro died a billionaire. To me, much more important than this is the ideology of the black lives matters organizations and allow me here a Brandon to make a difference. I don't talk about the concept, I embrace the concept. Black Lives Matter to me, it's important to assert that Black Lives Matter. I believe that. Disagree with me. But I believe that it's important to assert it because of history that we don't even need to explain. The organizations and their founders, though, is what matters to me because the Black Lives Matter global network foundation were founded by committed, I would say fanatical marxists whose project is central planning who really just use social justice as a fig leaf and who are having a huge impact on our lives today.

Tax Documents Reveal Truth About BLM Fraud

"My passion is to destroy the Black Lives Matter organization and show and prove to the world that they are the fraudulent organization that we always knew them to be. And this is not about politics. This is not about boot licking, Uncle Tom, and all this little crazy stuff people call me because I'm calling out the truth. This is about you understanding what the truth is and being able to make valuable decisions moving forward on who you support. Some of y'all was running around with a Black Lives Matter shirt on pumping your fist in the air, calling every white friend you know a racist. All in the name of what? Patrice colors should go to jail for this stuff. If you ask me, let's go through the financials. The financials were released. The headline reads from the daily wire, BLM cofounder paid her baby daddy. $970,000 for creative work, a creative services is what it's called. Quote unquote. Peter brother, $840,000 for security. Now, you know for a fact, they ain't doing no security and nobody doing nothing creative at Black Lives Matter to get almost a $1 million. But let's go through the finances in more depth or more in depth. $42 million in assets is what they were able to raise. They spent 37 million of those dollars on multiple different things that will make you sick to your stomach. I said it before, baby daddy got 970,000. Her brother got 840,000. The secretary of the BLM board secretary got 2.1 million Patrice Keller's had to reimburse Black Lives Matter because she spent $73,000 on a private jet.

"patrice" Discussed on Teach Us to Pray

"Your mind is going to be it's like swirl. Oh, okay, I'm supposed to. You know, and so you have to bring yourself back in. And our bodies were so, you know, I think it was Sandra, welcome Smith, who talked about, you know, and how you have to, you have to really teach your body to be still. So there's such a connection and of course when I go into all of that with your spirit and your mind and your body. But the first thing I would say is, if you need to set your timer and say, okay, for 5 minutes, I'm not going to do anything other than sit here and be still. That might be step one. Okay. Of growing in that discipline, right? Because just like with reading the word of God, we don't start at the beginning of our relationship with God being able to extra G the whole passage. It just might be one scripture that we're able to, you know. Same thing with that discipline. So for silence and solitude, I would say if you need to start with sitting and just literally maybe putting your phone into another room or whatever might be, you know the distractions that you can plan for. I mean, there are some things you can't plan for. If you have small kids and they run in your room and you know that kind of thing, you just like happens, right? But the things that you can eliminate, go ahead and eliminate them and just make yourself sit there. Now, how is that spiritual? What is not? But you've got to get your wife controlled. Got you got you. Okay. We're getting there. We're getting there. Right. Okay. So you started 5 minutes. And then once your body begins to kind of feel so anxious and agitated, then your mind is going to start to come in and you can focus your mind on God. And so what I normally do, I just literally, within myself, not audibly, because God is not set anything audibly to me. But then my spirit, I'm saying, lord, I'm here. Everyday as you want to say, whatever is you want to do. And I just go quiet. And I just wait. And if I feel myself drifting, like my attention, I'm going to something else. This is God's time. And I want him to know that I showed up. So I'm sitting in this chair. If I say that I'm going to come, you know, whatever time. And I'm going to meet with that. You know, it's just like any other relationship. Not every time you come together, you know, there's this agenda of, okay, we're going to go to movies at 7 o'clock. And then now we're going to go have dinner. And then it's not like that. It's just let's just see what happens. Yeah. And so we have to, again, be willing and it's so hard for us to structure to just release. Say, okay, got whatever you want to say. And not feel as if we didn't do something right, because here goes that performance. Uh oh. And God is not, he's not your father because of how well you perform. Even if you don't feel like he said something in that moment, it doesn't mean that your time was invaluable. It doesn't mean that you did not have a quality experience with God. God is more concerned about the fact that you came and you wanted to be with him. Yeah. Yes, I love that. Oh my gosh. We got to get you back on the show, 'cause I have so many more questions, but I'm gonna be respectful of your time and everybody else's time as well. You just such a rich well of wisdom and truth and grace and love and we can tell that you have been filling up on Jesus and I just thank you for taking time today to pour out to us. I am so much better for this conversation for sure. So much. Thank you so much. Before you go, will you tell our audience how they can connect with you? Absolutely.

"Us outside our heads and be like, okay. You know? Right, yeah. You know, he's not going to do that. We have to be willing to yield. Will you open the door? Just isn't going to bust the door down. He's knocking. He's not going to bust the door down, but you got to open. I love them. So in this season of your life, what is your prayer life looking like? How do you practically maintain it? Active life when I know you got ministry and work and family and friends and responsibilities yeah, I am trying to be very intentional about soul care and I prefer that term over self care because I think it really encompasses spirit soul and body and so when I see that the spiritual disciplines are things that I need to do because it's a part of my care. So it's not just because I'm again trying to meet some kind of quota or God would have spiritual actually be right? Right. But I need to do this because, you know, I'm just a better person when I be with Jesus. Right. Stuff just comes out a little bit better. You know that patient and kind and long suffering and all of that? Yeah. So for me, I've always been able to get up in the mornings in different seasons that time has changed, but I do typically because I have a work day, I start my first time with God because I just feel like if I don't get to talk to Jesus first, I'm not ready to talk to anybody else. Yeah, they're right. Yes. And I have to be on, you know, when I'm at work and so I in the morning typically have my quiet time, but prayer looks like different things. So there are times that I have designated for intersex repair. There are certain people that I have purposed in my heart that I'm going to pray for every day. That's just a part of what I feel God wants me to do, right? And then there is prayer where I'm doing a lot of the meditation in silence and solitude. So I'm not doing a lot of talking. I'm just listening for God. And then there are certain players that so I have flex time, certain days of the week that I know this is the time that I'm going to create scripture. So just kind of having a variety of mix of things that I do. That may look like some confession statements, faith declaration statements, but it's brain scripture, and so yeah, I kind of have different things that, you know, there are these times that I just spontaneously have to say, okay, guys, you know, I really didn't like that and XYZ is going on. Yeah, yeah, 'cause you know, when you're in the line of Chick-fil-A and people start acting crazy and stuff, you have to just pull one up real quick, right? Yeah. Okay, so, you know, all of that, all of that is a part of prayer and but starting my day with God has definitely been the staple of my of my Christian walk. I feel like having that time with him first helps me to center myself. And so really pouring into that place first. And then, again, thinking about what the spiritual disciplines, how we approach the work, right? Because reading the word is not the same as studying the word. It's not the same as meditating upon scripture. So thinking about different pockets of my time throughout the day. And this is what I mean when I say walking with God, it's a daily thing. It's not like, okay, I'm doing my quiet time in the morning, and that's over. And there's nothing else going on for the rest of the day. I may only have a 30 minute period, but in that 30 minutes, what am I going to do? You know, am I going to sit there and look at some cars, flashcards, or index cards, where I have scriptures, or over those switchers, or whatever. You have to just give those time to guide and dedicated to him. And he's going to do something with it. He may lead you differently from one to the other. But if you make room for him, he will show up in that space. One of the things that I've been very intentional about bring for this year in particular is margin, because I don't want as much as I love my color pins and I have my planner completely color coded. I know what I'm looking like a rainbow every day. And I'm like, the older I get, the more I realize less it's really more. This is really more. And one of my friends said to me, she said, I just decided I don't want to be a busy woman. I just don't want to be busy. Right. I want to be fruitful. Yes. Now, I want what I do to matter to God. I want the things that I spend my energy in to have eternal value for the kingdom, not for Patrice because every good idea is not a God idea. Every good thing is not something that God is necessarily calling me to do. But I want to be able to have enough margin that, you know, if Jesus just wants spontaneously speak to me, does he have space in my calendar to do that? You talked about silence and listening when you pray. What is that look like? And what's happening there? You know, 'cause some people might hear that. Am I just sitting there and I just don't hear anything? How am I hearing God? How does that work? Right. As in our, we always have noise going on in our society. We got our phones and our TVs and our devices and, you know, the idea of sitting down and quiet for 5 minutes might intimidate absolutely. So how do we just sit in solid student silence and hear from God? Like what does that look like? And there might be this fear like, what if I don't hear anything? What if I do it or something? And you may not. And that's okay. Okay. So the first thing is to not have this expectation of, you know, so when I first started doing this, honestly, I would set the, I would set my timer. Okay. 5 minutes. Okay. Because what I found is before my spirit to get into, I had to settle my body. Like, I had to kind of bring my mind back in because it's easy to wander. Like 5 minutes, there's nothing going on. You will hear the refrigerator. The ice machine is going on. You're going to hear everything outside. You're going to hear all the sounds in your house. You know,.

"You said you were going through 15 months of pain and just healing from that still needing to work. And then God is like, and by the way, right? And I had to take an MRI or a cat scan or something one day come from work and I was just that whole side of my body where I had impact. It was still very stiff. I wasn't able to, like I said, maneuver down the stairs or things like that. So it was obvious by the way I was walking, that something was still wrong, physically, right? Right. And so it was just kind of in my spirit. Of course, 'cause I love God and I respect him. I would never say it out my mouth. Like, you want me to do what? Oh, you must have the wrong person. The other one down the street. Yeah, yeah, yeah. Can we write a different kind of book? Because I don't want to talk about being a warrior. To be honest, you know, because sometimes people, they hear that term and they think a lot of different things. And for me, I feel like, and I felt like, in that season, I was none of that. I'm not hardcore, you know, just kind of in your face and kick the devil in his teeth. That's not my personality. That's not my persona. And God tilt me. He was like, Patrice, you will never have to diminish your femininity as a woman administrator. You'll never have to downplay any of that to be a warrior because again, it's not about the outward appearance. It's not about what you say. It is what you do. And we go into your closet and you pray and you lift your hands and worship to me, that is what makes you a warrior, right? Yeah. What was one of the greatest lessons you learned in being obedient to write that book in that season of pain? That God is faithful in his timing. Our job is to have faith. Our job is to have hope, our job is to confess, right? Right. We speak God's word, we put ourselves into pregnant with his work. But ultimately, we have to trust him. That he's got, we are not. He knows what's best, his timing is perfect. And at the moment that I was supposed to recover my healing, my limbs, all of those things that it was going to come together. Yeah. Did I want it in a month number one, month and number two? Yeah, I did. But that wasn't his will. And I trust that he was no less deserving of my love, my praise, my trust, because he didn't do it the way I thought he should have. Right. I love that, you know, you encourage that level of devotion and faithfulness, despite your circumstances. And you know, a lot of Christians today that are probably watching or listening to this are going through their own, you know, healing, whether it's physical, spiritual, mental, or things like that. And we know that there's power in prayer. Even in those seasons, what are some of the most important areas that you believe Christians should be praying about today? Personally, starting with yourself, you know, your surrender. I think we have to really make sure that when we pray in that model prayer that Jesus gave for disciples, let it be done on earth as it is in heaven. Right. And so a part of prayer is understanding what is the role of the father in speaking that in the art, putting ourselves in agreement with him. And so although we can say, I want this is my desire, but deeper than that is surrendering to God's will forever. I think that is the place where we truly find peace. You know, everybody has the idea of what they think they want, but gazi is the big picture. He knows the end at the beginning. And so surrendering that lord, this is what I desire, yes I want going back to my single sisters. Yes, God, I want to remarry. I want to marry whatever the case might be. But I have to trust that you have my heart and you're not going to allow anyone to do anything to my heart because I'm your daughter. And you want what's best for me. And so when things don't materialize the way I hope I'm not going to give into that place of, well, when is it going to be my turn or God must not love New York? All of those things, I'm going to trust that you are my father that you have a father's heart for me. And that you're too wise to make any mistakes. Right. I can surrender even the thing that we think we have to have because when we talk about surrender really, it's never the 5%. It's never the 95% rather that we're willing to relinquish, right? Right. But surrender is always that 5% that we want to hold on to one thing. Yes, we need to have it. We got to have it our way. And God is saying that right there. You got to correct me with that. Is that that's the kind of guy he is. But we see his faithfulness even in that. And then what happens is we got blesses us, right? It's so much better. It may not be what we thought it should have been. So much better than we could have ever imagined or put together. Even if he would have said, okay, here's my God, baton, wand. I'm gonna let you hold it for a minute, and you can poop, do whatever you want to do, right? Right. It's still so much better than anything we could have figured out for ourselves. Yeah. I love that. Yeah, he can do exceedingly abundantly more than all we can ask or imagine. And we can experience that when we, like you say, a surrender. So yeah, there's going to be important for us for me. To be like, help me to surrender to your will by trusting you. Essentially, and I love that we can pray about it. You know, we don't have to just be like, oh, I am this or I'm not, you know? If we feel like we're lacking in an area when it comes to our spiritual growth or trusting him, we can pray and help help me have the faith that I don't have in this area, you know? Absolutely. He does not leave us comfortless. That's one of the jobs of the Holy Spirit. He's our pair of fleet. He's our helper. And so he will give us what we need. We just have to ask. But the part about the Holy Spirit though is we have to be willing to yield. Yeah. This is not going to stop.

"patrice" Discussed on Teach Us to Pray

"I'm excited to share with you a conversation that I had with Patrice Burrell. She is an author life coach and worship leader who loves practicing the presence of God through a lifestyle anchor in spiritual disciplines and encouraging believers to live authentically and pursue God passionately. She's the author of warrior sleigh, a devotional book on the power of prayer and worship. In this conversation, we're going to be talking about her book warrior sleigh. Why she chose that title and the gift and the power of prayer in our everyday lives. We're also going to talk about practical ways that we can stay connected to God through prayer even when life is busy. What listening prayer is and how to get started with a prayer of solitude and listening. If you are like me, you're probably like, what is that? I can't imagine being still for more than 5 minutes. How do I get started with something like that so that I can hear God clearly, Patrice is going to break that down for us and give us some real life tips on how we can actually incorporate more solitude and silence in our lives so that we can hear from God through prayer. She's also going to give us some real life tips on what her prayer life looks like and how she's maintaining an active prayer life, even when things are busy. So enjoy today's conversation. I wanted to briefly talk about your book, warrior sleigh, where you talk about the power of prayer. First I want to ask, tell us a little bit about the title of that book. Where did that title? Well, you know, in culture, we hear that term slay and sometimes it takes on a very worldly context. If we're honest. And my book is kind of like, but that's not how you say. That's not what makes you a warrior. Will make you warrior is having a prayer life. But making you worry is understanding the power of praise. Again, those two spiritual disciplines and so I want people to be women to be empowered by, you know, it's not because your hair is on point and your makeup is flawless and all of the stuff and you can have the total package from the outward appearance. But if behind that, there's no staying power. There's nothing that keeps you rooted in anchor. And that's going to be your prayer life. Then that's not how you slide. So we're all going to go through things in life, right? In this world, we will have trouble. But God has been so gracious to us, he's given us tools. He's given us a model even for Jesus and how he was so intentional about praying to the father. So we know that there's power in prayer. Right. And I believe when you couple that with praise, it's just even that more dynamic. And so warrior site is really about emphasizing how I'm able to overcome how I'm able to break through, you know, I wrote that book when I was in a 15 month rehabilitation process after a really bad car accident. And at that point, I moved to Orlando in two months later had the car accident. And I was like, God, what is this about, you know? Am I am I in your wheel? Why is it so hard? You know, I was just in so much physical pain, trying to manage the pain. And it was like, well, you know, did you think that when you go into the promised land, there's not going to be giants, you still don't have to slice and stuff. You're still going to have to, you know, you're going to have to deal with some things. It's not going to be like, okay, I'm in Orlando now, and whoop they do. No, that cane, what's the warfare? And going through that and walking through the process of at the point that I had been out of work for about three weeks and had to go back by vocation. I'm an educator. So at that time, I was still a homeroom teacher. I had been teaching third grade and I remember literally when I had to first go back to work. And my colleague, they were so gracious. They would take my kids, I was on the second floor of a building. But it was obvious to everyone that, you know, things were different for me. I was taking stairs. I had to take the elevator, my walking, so they would take my kids downstairs to the cafeteria when it's time for them to go to lunch and all of that. And I remember times when I would, by the time they would usher my kids out the door, I'd go to my desk and I put my head down and I just cried because I'd been so much pain. And I was like, God, you know, it's so painful. My body is still just, I'm dealing with so much pain. Then in going through that, you know, eventually God let me to write the book and initially, I went silent. You know how Sarah laughed at that? I didn't laugh. I just went sided like if I were, I'm just gonna act like this is not what he's saying because I won't have to do it. And you know, I'm just gonna ignore it. And but God has a way, right? So I sent lord, I don't even feel like I'm ready to write this book because I'm still dealing with this pain. But what I learned in my pain was never stop praying and to never stop phrasing. And that said to me, I want to see what you were going to do at the greatest point if you're paying for treats. Would you let the warrior on the inside of you rise up? Would you begin to praise and release the praise in the midst of the pain in the midst of wanting the healing, not wanting it to be the way it was. I mean, who wants to go through something for 15 months, you know? But still that what I would give him would be praised because I trust it that even in the midst of the struggle in the midst of this test, that there was still a warrior in me and that he was going to bring me through. And so I battled with writing the book because I felt like, well, I'm not on the other side of this guy. I'm not finished with my healing and God says, I don't want you to write from being on the other side of it. I need you to write these devotionals in the midst of your tears as you're walking through this process of pain because.

Black Lives Matter Suspends Online Fundraising

"Questions have also been raised up what's going on at the top of BLM G and F and nobody knows there's no one in charge. It's a slush fund. It's a shell. It's a mystery. The organization is not appear to have a chief executive officer for over a year. According to the Washington examiner, which did great work on this, former CEO Patrice color stepped down in May of 2021, following criticisms of her personal finances she went on a shopping spree. She bought homes across the planet. Literally, Canada everywhere. This appears, they gave all these different excuses, but then this one gets even more interesting. BLM gnf has now off the suspend its online fundraising operations, tens of millions of dollars were also certainly raised during a period when the organization had no leadership team. And then of course, were the houses, spike dot com writes. Again, this is a terrific piece. One of the main reasons caller stepped down was due to the controversy over her real estate buying binge, which she purchased four homes valued at $3.2 million. Colors signed off on the deeds for a house in Inglewood, California worth half a $1 million, a custom ranch property located in rural Georgia, which was equipped with an airplane runway. And at $1.4 million mansion in ritzy topanga, canyon, a short drive from Malibu. You think all of this would make people want to know what happened to the billions pledged to BLM or the millions given to BLM G and F, but nope, the media doesn't care at all. Why would they be bothered by such things?

Michael J. O'Loughlin Previews His New Book, 'Hidden Mercy'

"C. S. Lewis said that if you could see grief and it was colored black that the world would be wreathed in black from space. Do you believe that to be the case of the country and the aids crisis? It was a pretty grim time. Like you said in the intro, like I wrote about in the book, it was a time when people were not only suffering, but they were being ignored by so many parts of society government pharmaceutical the church generally. And there weren't a lot of moments for hope, but what I tried to do was profile those individuals who were stepping up and doing the right thing. So there was a lot of grief and darkness, but there were people who for many reasons and in my case I profiled Catholic remote by their face who said we have to do something step top and love their neighbor as they were called to do by the gospel. That's why I think it is very timely. We're going to be dealing with long COVID for a long time, and we're going to be dealing with the deaths of despair and people who are lonely and isolated. But sister Carolyn, sister Mary Allen and Bellevue Illinois, sister Patrice Murphy and New York, father, Bill mcnichols in New York, father, Tony Maguire and San Francisco. You've got a legion of heroes in this book. So tell me why you wrote it. You're a young man. Why did you go back and find all those people who are my age? Yes, so I'm in my 30s and I've been reporting on the Catholic Church and politics and religion in the United States for about a decade. And I really didn't know any of the story. And it was important to me because I'm a religion reporter. I'm also a gay man and I was intrigued by this relatively recent history that just wasn't taught. I didn't learn it from my family. I didn't learn it in schools. I certainly didn't learn to church. And I realized that there was this vast wealth of information from people who were 20, 30 years older than me, that just hadn't been passed down. And I thought there's all this collected wisdom and insight that I think is applicable to all people. A part of our history. And I wanted to capture it before it was too late. And some of the lessons in mercy talk about why it's important to step up and do the right thing. Even if society isn't quite there yet, even if society is pregnant a lot of shame and stigma and people like sister Carol and other Bill really were confident in their belief that they were called to serve their neighbors and they did so through heroic means and with a sense of great humility at the same time.

"Into that person so you should just know what you're getting into. I was listening to this episode of the dave ramsey. Show or this man was talking about he and his fiancee. He was going to be an orthodontist. He just become an orthodontist one million dollars student loans one million dollars in student loans and he just got engaged and he was like planning for a wedding and like all this stuff and i just remember the people in the comments. Just let them have it. They're like first of all. Who's marrying you with a million dollars in student loan debt and i just like well at least the woman must know but it's one of those are questions that you have to ask. Are you going to be prepared to work with someone. In order to get out of that type of debt because the conversations the the beefing but headbutting is usually about debt. it's usually about debt repayment. And a lot of times it's about like overdrafts and overspending and monitoring what people are spending on and i think you need to have an addition to what's coming in what's going out you have to have some conversations about values and in future because if people won't stop overspending because they are so caught up about appearances or the validation that may come with buying certain things or living in a certain area driving a certain car if you can't get on the same page about that hopefully if you have a reasonable partner you will get on the same page about your future that this can't go on forever so i can let you be great in the year of twenty twenty. What are we going to do. Twenty twenty five twenty thirty twenty thirty five arcades going to school debt free. Are we going to let them come out of school with student loans like we did in once you start connecting to bigger wise that our future wise especially when you can add visual to it. People start to shift especially with children. I see more than anything. Not wanna your children's experience. What you did is usually a great motivating factor. Yeah no this is great and as you know patrice i could talk to you forever and this has been fantastic but before you go. What is one challenge that you would give to the audience. That can help them in this conversation. If there's one thing that you want them to take away from this what is the one thing would be to start with yourself. Yes it's a difficult conversation that you wanna have with a significant other but you have to have some really difficult conversations with you. I about are you being the example. Are you showcasing. The very ways of being that you want to force upon them or you just want to point the finger right and are you clear about how you grew up because perhaps you have a false ideal of what they're actually doing. Because you're only looking at it through your lens through the lens of your upbringing as opposed to. Perhaps you know they're so looking at yourself and making sure that you are being the example before you try to force.

I want to remind everybody that you should look at when you're behind the microphone. It's game time so let's talk just a little bit about your gametime routine when you're talking you talked a little bit about at the beginning you know talk about pets or whatever. Do you have anything standard that you do with your clients to prepare them for for the ultimate and of recording. The way i try to warm them up is. I asked them to tell me about the weather. What is the weather like that way. I can check their levels their microphones. Whatever he also they get warmed up we're talking with. Everybody can talk about the weather. Come on you're never wrong. you're never right. The weather is right there. That's how we'll get going. We'll get warmed up that way and then it's will let's see. What did i learned about the last time. Let's bring that up again. I've got folders with little notes and it's it's once you get to know them. I even by the third episode. Your friends you're more than acquaintances because you have sweated this together and it's matter of it's the personal but it's also it's the technical. I'm at this end going. Holy cow is level kicked. Don't don't mess up on you're doing fine. You're doing fine keep it going. Keep it going and we're end. I'm sure it's like. Oh my god. I gotta keep it going to keep it going. Yes you're sweating it together. Man it's something various special. It is well we hear that a lot and so as we wrap up today's podcast. I'm gonna make patrice even more uncomfortable here other than some other questions because one of the things that we hear from your clients on a regular basis is the fact that they feel so comfortable with you that you're so professional and you really do make them sparkle you make them just sound amazing so i want to personally. Thank you for that enclosing. If you were to give advice like something that you learned in in your very short time on this planet that you say which everybody just knew this before they got behind the mike. What what. What would that be. There's nothing special. there's nothing hidden..

"Was nice nice. Let's look that makes me feel appreciative. You know what. I mean like something here. That really awesome as one of the last question. I wanna ask you is throughout this time patrice. It's the moment you've been open actually toll right now. what's been your biggest. Like struggle or fowler pitfall no real huge pitfalls at the moment am kind of thinking about. What's my next marketing strategy. You know right now. Everyone's everyone who's found me. Google and you know they mentioned on social media but now i'm thinking kay west the next thing it wasn't Naturally makes sense you know so. It's not a pitfall necessarily but is one thing that i'm kind of. I'm kind of struggling with it. A little bit. Yeah what are you thinking about right now for the next thing you know. I'm not sure. But i'm thinking that everyone's on social media and my patients are kind of in that age group where it's the twenty eight to forty five year old age group is kind of a millennial and so they're always on social media. That's where everybody is. And so i'm thinking maybe i should do a little bit more with my social media get a little bit more involved. It's very time consuming. But that's what i'm thinking. But i have to do a little bit more research. Were marketing is concerned. Yeah would you ever delegate. The to one of your team members i have thought about it but that might see members are not very millennial. And so in slow. They don't they. Don't necessarily use social media. And so if i do want to delegate that i think i would hire someone not necessarily just social media but Mba younger person had them do something. Like sterilization and also social media makes a lot of moral. Yeah almost like a new patient. Concierge where they had to like make sure everything's cleaned up everything right and then marketing and social media exactly. I liked that. I liked it. Okay awesome and then so throughout this time. Do you feel like the vision of your practice. Is going the way you envisioned it or has it had to pivot a little bit knows actually going the way i envisioned. It concerns considering considering the pandemic Is a slower uptick but the trend is upward regardless. And so i would say is not happening. Possibly as fast as i wanted meaning the growth the having his best is. I wanted to but then realistically speaking.

"Captain Patrice Bergeron spoke to the media today and was asked about the game plan heading into the rematch. Have a better start. You know, I think that that's the main thing we talked about. Even after the game last game is, you know they came out strong and they got the better of us early on, and we got better as the game went on, But then you know, you can't just rely on that. And the Celtics are back on the court. Tonight, They will host the Detroit Pistons at eight o'clock. Brian Antonelli WBZ Boston's news radio, Well, 6 13, and we're having a time of it on the expressway per usual. Subaru Retailers of New England all wheel drive traffic on the threes like you brought to us by Yankee Custom truck. It seems like the same time every Friday night to call the North Bound Expressway. A complete standstill. Coming up from Braintree with the left lane crash after Furnace Brook Parkway. The backup reaches well before Route 37. It's now reaching onto the top of Ruth three up into the splits. Oh, yeah, just a real problem at the start of the expressway here. South down. The expressway is good coming out of the tunnel. Slow going Mass after self bay. But surprisingly, it's not bad After that. Route three is clear all the way down. Pass route to 28 tonight and Rich 24 95 south. They're both fine coming down from 93. Another problem is downtown. The Tobin Bridge, Outbound jammed all the way up and over. It's a crash at the bottom of the bridge on the Chelsea side, keeping it down to one lane there Well, Storrow drives eastbound is backed up a little bit coming into leverage Circle. It's pretty slow on the left right up ramp, but the lower deck of 93 is fine. And so are all the airport tunnels up north of the city. Things are finally good on the upper end of 1 28. Roots three and 93 north. They're both pretty good up to the New Hampshire line and out to the West. The Mass Turnpike is good now..

"Speech he gave during game six of the cup final where they're facing elimination, which blew the doors off Saint Louis and that game and their own their own building all those guys afterwards. It wasn't about you know, the cliche dances of you know, we were good on the forecheck, you know around in Parks or anything like that. A lot of it was just need those speeds version gave and their commitments not wanting that season-ending that way. So yeah, I mean you kind of Trace all a lot of the success for the Bruins on ice off a lot of it is a trace back to version women who admitted or not. He probably won't in terms of his role and all of it of course, but he's just been a Monumental piece for the Bruins in terms of just his successor over the pretty much the whole tenure that he's been here. The brownie now going into is 17th season. So it's definitely Testament and title that is absolutely deserved and not a surprise to anyone. No, not a surprise. I think there's a legit case to be made the best thing to happen to Brad. Marchand was Patrice Bergeron. Oh and that first Bergeron really was kind of the the guy that set a guy like Marshawn straight cuz there was a real. It was never like Sagan but you know, like it was known that Marshawn like to have a good time and you know, the the the the celebration after the cop was she was well warranted. I mean you want to kill a cop like absolutely but you know the stuff on the ice and sort of his Antics on it was more on the ice stuff. It was him being AWOL from the Stanley Cup DVD cuz he was not in the state to do his recordings, which it was a great little fact about that video. If you watch it. He doesn't he's not have they always have you know, the talking head things. He's like not in a I don't think cuz like yeah, he wasn't available. So yep. So there's that too. So it's things like that that you know, I think it feels like you know as marshmellows are got older and matured. You know that happens as you get older but I do think that the best thing I think one of em, most, you know responsible pieces for Brad Marchand becoming an elite, you know Point getting Winger in the NHL, which I don't think you know, if you go back to the beginning of the 2010s, I don't think many people pegged Mars is like, you know, a top-five left-winger at some point is career. And here he is. He might particularly might be the best one player. This is arguably argument to be made for that. So a lot of that is Bergeron like that girl was you know, they've been linemates whole time. He reached his best friend on the team, you know, first runs been like the biggest influence on him. So I do think that it's absolutely possible that Bergeron is probably the best thing to happen to Brad Marchand back on and off the ice. So I think Bergeron obviously definitely, you know deserving of the the captaincy, but when you want to make safe bets like Burj Becoming Captain. There's only one place to make a bet like that. And that's betonline.ag absolutely Heaven. Listen up guys. It's an exciting time of the year around the Sports World.

"You're listening to women. Making Waves Patrice Lawrence fuels. Were living in a world where writers of color are still represented. Patrice writes stories that reflect families. Who Don't have a voice or face in the world of books initially Patrice. Its debut book. Orange boy faced resistance for publishers. Never reluctance to present this new and different story. It was later shortlisted for the cost of Children's Book Award and won the Bookseller Waie Prize and waterstones prize. For older children's fiction but chase lawrence speaks to susie Thorp award-winning writer of stories for children and Young People Patrice Lawrence is charmed by London music. And Saifi she loves reading stories that confound stereotypes and feels very strongly about the need to mirror the diverse range of lives and experiences. She sees around every day in her own. Writing Hallo Patrice when did you discover Patrice? There were not enough representations of you in stories and to be honest. I never ever expected that I be in a story so I think for me to say you know. Did I ever expect to see myself represented like I dunno saying Patrice? You want to be a strawberry. Because if it just so random and Seville I should be there was born in the UK. And I grew up in the seventies and eighties in Sussex. Lot Books I read were as opposed to classic Books Secret Garden. Heidi wind in the willows Little women on those type of books and there were never any body that looked like me and also grew up in a family where my Stepdad's Italian? My Mum's Trinidadian were married. Everything about ourselves different so for me. It's an absolute impossibility serving the thing. The first time I thought that we could actually be burks as in UK. People of Color supposed to American. When I was thirty two and just had a baby is two weeks old. And it was December and I turned the Latifi and it was the BBC adaptation of Marie Blattman Picart boy and I've been writing for a long time but never put people in stories because I just saw which is in stories in on writing not not not on a page and suddenly Oh my goodness we could be an store opened for me. Yeah the idea that you discover something like this at the age of thirty two patrice. It's absolutely heartbreaking. Because you me we should all be reading books reflecting all of society. It's a loss to all of us really absolutely. I think we can find our world food books. 'cause we can find ourselves but also and it helps us develop our empathy knowledge or care in our kindness and one of the things. I grew up in a Sussex and the secondary school I went to. There's probably less than ten of us out of sixteen seventeen hundred who weren't white And I had a good time at school have good friends quack democratic but remember in the only thing we learned about People of African descent was that we were enslaved so nothing about how we fool not all and remember headmaster during an assembly about just Jones. The sprinter and it's a I almost hold of him and I just sat there in the middle of this assembly with all these little white students around may feeling so proud thinking that actually we do things we did achieve. So it's how you see. Your identity is seen to be powerful to others is important and I think we can do in books by making Audit People. Heroes and heroines. You brought up in a mixed race family. How important is it to recognize families? I mean all family news when trying to connect people to read for me that essential and when I do school talk talk about the fact that are all things that made me feel different and to subjugate made me feel lesser of all the things that made me a better writer so I've never lived in a family where we're all the same color so the first family. I lived in a foster family because my mom was the only one of her siblings family who came to England so she was the second youngest of twelve and she came from Trinidad to be a nurse and I met my biological father. Who'd come from Guyana with the ball up in Barbados and chance to be a nurse? And they were both sort of early twenties plight and sixties parties and suddenly. My mom is and it was just also just pre the Abortion Act surfing. My Dad wanted her to terminate the and she didn't want to so choices. Were really for me to be adopted as obsolete quite people my age were if that patients who are married but I was play if oster from the age of four months two full years with family employed who absolutely lovely sort of white working class firm. You really cared from Chile and then it went back to my mom who had wet my Italian Stepdad's and so then looked to plumbers from there and when I write my stories I always write about families often well it might be a family whether might be bereavement single-parent family or families of the new book where one characters the characters died and talking schools. It's so relatable to young people absolutely and to see that families are all shapes low colors and hope that place in Berks you're brilliant writing from different perspectives portrays. Do you think men have this ability to. I don't know I think it's interesting with orange. Boy I've got a really brutal writing and in first few drastic. Say Like no. Marlin is not a boy betrayed. The boy's name won't showers you know and it's like no just sounds like you. I actually had to do a lot of research and two things actually worked for me was just the basic thing of asking particularly my rightist grape who had teenage sons and offended teenage sons. We observed them think of it sounded royal and secondly was changed the story from third person to first person because originally it was a really close in a close point of view third person but by actually changing the first person. I could see through. Marlins is a sink how he would sit on the bus. I think how he would see how people project things onto him. I could really visualize and gets under his skin of research because I'm still writing not just a different gender but from a different age and you have grown up in London so did take a lot of research and I'm just lucky that I know people are willing to ask quite intimate questioned. What is so modern? It's also because I'm writing about a young black boy who gets involved in crime. The temptation is to people read stereotypes to read an archetype and so it was really important for me to make very much individual individual. So that's Geeky and Saifi. And he's clings to music is inherited from his dad was barely an indigo donor. I really wanted a really kind boy. Who's really comfortable with his kindness? Think so I think it was right in a bit of an archetype there. But you know besides reading your books other ways. Are you trying to reach people? Find Your books I think. That's one of the joys of the school visits and going into secondary schools which I do quite quite a lot. I was lucky enough this year to be part of the Hay Festival's scrupulous tour. So it's they work with five universities in Wales and schools. Kind calm when usually year eight nine or ten students the ones who wouldn't normally go to university and a that used to four to middle grade mixture to next week to young adult writers. So they see me. I'm blind can hamper through grew up working class environments so we could talk about our journey about how you know someone like me. You would never ever dream that mom would go into waterstone's insane it. That's my daughter and about everything that told me that I could be a writer. Made me a writer. I also secret weapon. Which is my teenage diary from. When I was thirteen is incredibly relatable even they cringe on my behalf and also talk another. Another sort of workshops took about different types of stories for instance. How Pixar uses favor and things like Toy Story and up to create in our sympathy for characters talk about Korean dramas which have fantastic in there. In episodes spoken word poetry how to some brilliant young spoken word poets who caught on video and took about things relatable to lots of young people that are kind of different ways that we can think about how words and stories can be used. You said that music is really important in your books and Saifi as well. How do you use it in? Your Books Patrice Fifi with more in in The the first Book in orange boy mainly because it was sort of an accident in that wrote the original power that might in course just from a variety informed and have no idea that was going to be a burke and are chosen models named simply because that was the name of boy my oldest class at school and then whatever it started lighting the burke thinking. Oh my gosh I am writing a black boy. That's getting involved crime. I want to explore that because there not a lot of knife crime in in can you live comic. This boy and a stereotype. Solar thought was like how would he get his name? Wow Marlon Brando. Superman died in a films. So if his dad was really into Saifi and my biological data's really inter- Isaac Asimov and Star Trek so kind of bought that over and the Matrix when I won the other two of it. So all of these things and music. I think is something that really combined us that sense of when you go to sort of live music everybody singing the same chorus so think music music from his mood as well so he has a lot of that shape mood and bring people together. All of what you've written safer really really Madison. It's not just becoming an author but it's all about changing perceptions as well. What do you can really see the difference. It makes when affect young people and sometimes adults who have experienced some of the issues that I talk about in the books and I think one of the things that took about when I do school visits is in my biological father who died when I was in mind when I was in my twenties. And he was in his forties and he'd have to a breakdown hit Been imprisoned for a month for just for forging a check but because these are nurse obviously can work and then he couldn't meant his petit and became sort of street homeless in Brighton and he died in a house. Five Squat and talk about this and I talk about it because I say that there's quite a lot vivement and lost in the books as well but I know that sometimes when you're holding things inside it's really hard to talk about bereavements and lost to other people because you're dealing with your own feelings in any have to deal with somebody else's reactions but actually you can find yourselves in berks symphony. It feels really big responsibility. About what books? And what young people see there and how they see themselves because even at a contemporary books and issues I deal with quite tough. I also want that to be hope because I just think. Young people are incredibly strong. Resilient as well. It's really interesting. What you say about responsibility and I suppose in light of what? We're going through right now with lockdown and reading about fake news to you. Try to focus your novels on true representation of society as opposed. Both books can be in a sense. I suppose it don't set out that way I start off with characters by also sat. Young People. I'm a bit that hope that important ingredient into go donuts. I had no idea what was going to light because at the to Brookdale but it was also a time when Foster children if they were living with foster care were supposed to leave the family when they were eighteen. And remember thinking is that my daughter's like fifteen sixteen really responsible when she's eighteen a time for celebration not saying now leaves the House and I think that made me incredibly angry so when I was writing about. Somebody's in foster care. I felt it really important for me to let what her truth. Were both feeding some message about what it's like to be in. That situation and I have had really good responses for young people care experienced who have actually seen themselves in a book version of themselves so I think as something that is incredible great responsibility. I mean the other thing I remember is when I saw as before the Internet at school. Weasley Book Club so leads to give looper bushes with books in there. And you'LL CIRCLE. Take it back to you.

"The first, the first Pocono enjoy mainly, because it was sort of an accident in that the original power glass that cry mighty cost just from a variety informed and have no idea that was going to be a burke, and are chosen models named simply because that was the name of a boy, my oldest clouds and school, and then when I started light in the burke are thinking my Gosh, you know I am writing a black boy that's getting involved in crime. Want to explore that because they're not a lot of knife crime in in Hackney live, but comic. This boy and a stereotype solar thought was like. How would he get his name? Wow Marlon Brando who superman died in a foams. Kid So what if his dad was really into Saifi and my biological is really is Asimov Fan and star Trae so kind of bought the over and I loved the Matrix when the first one now the two of it. So these things and MUSICA. Thank is something that really combined us. You know that sense of when you go to of live music and everybody's singing the same chorus. So I think music and live music from his mood as well so a lot of that shape mood and bring people together. All of what you've written safe are really really mattison. It's not just becoming an author, but it's all about changing perceptions as well. What familiarly and you can, you can really see the difference it makes. When young people and sometimes adults world who have experienced some of a issues artists is talk about in the books. And I think one of the things that talk about when I do. School visits is in my biological father, who died when I was in my four when I was in my twenty s, and he was in his forties, and he'd had a town hit. been imprisoned for a month for just the four GINA check, but because he's a nurse, obviously can work, and then he can. Meant his property I became sort of St homeless in Brighton, and he died in a house fire, squirt and talk about this and talk about it because I say that there's quite a lot vivement lost in the books as well, but I know that sometimes when you're holding things inside, it's really hard to talk about bereavement loss to other people, because you're dealing with your own feelings, and then you have to deal with somebody else's reactions, but actually you can find yourselves in Berks so for me. Me It feels muny big responsibility about what books and what young people see there and how they see themselves, because even at a contemporary books and issues I deal with are quite tough. I also wanted to be hope because I just think young people are incredibly strong resilient as well. It's really interesting that you say about responsibility, and I suppose in light of what we're going through right now with lockdown and reading about fake news to you. Try to focus your novels on true representation of society. As opposed both books can be in a sense and I suppose it. Don't set out that way I start with characters by. Sat young people have a bit late. Whole Component Yank me. Over into go nuts. I had no idea what goes into light because had the to Brookdale.

"When did you discover Patrice? There were not enough representations of you in stories, and to be honest I never. Never expected that I would be in story so I think for me to say you know. Did I ever expect to see myself? Represented as like a denault saying Patrice, you want to be a strawberry, because if it just so random and Seville that I should be. There I mean I grew up, was born in the UK and I grew up in the seventies and eighties in Sussex. Books were it were as opposed to classic books. No Secret Garden Heidi. Windy willows. Little women others type of. And there never anybody that looked like me. And also grew up in a family where my Stepdad's Italian. My Mum's Trinidadian. Married everything about us was different so for me. It was an absolute impossibility. Thing the first time. I thought that we could actually be burks as in UK, people of Color as opposed to American when I was thirty, two and I just had a baby is two weeks old it December and I turned on the TV and it was the BBC adaptation of Marie Platinum Picker boy. And I've been writing for a long time, but never put people in store because I just saw in stories in on writing not not not on a page, and suddenly on my goodness, we could be an. Store opened for me. The, idea that you discover something like this at the age of thirty two. Patrice is absolutely heartbreaking. Because you me, we should all be reading books reflecting all of society, it's a loss to all of us really. Oh, absolutely! I think we can find our world food books, so we can find ourselves, but also birth, and it helps us develop our empathy, our knowledge, our care in our kindness and one of the things I grew up in. West Sussex. The secondary school I went to probably less than ten of I out of sixteen, Seventeen, hundred. Who Won't White and I had a good time at school of. Of Quackery Mik, but remember you know the only thing we learned about people of African descent was that we were enslaved so nothing about how we were Appalachia, nothing at all and remember headmaster during a assembly about. Jesse Owens the sprinter, and it's a I heard of him, and I just sat there in the middle of this assembly with these sort of white students around may feeling so proud thinking can actually we did do things we did achieve so it's how you see. Your identity is seen to be powerful to ever is important too, and I think we can do that in books by making older people, Heroes and heroines you bruce off a mixed race family. How important is it to recognize families I mean all families when trying to connect people to read for me that that is sent show and when I do school talks talk about the fact that all the things that made me feel different, and to subjugate made me for lesser alone things that made me a better writer, so I've never lived in a family..

"Feel like there's someone out there who understands them a little bit better because of that and that for me is very powerful to think that. I these are perfect strangers and yet there's something what I have shared of my story that is going to enable them to stand taller in their own story. The other thing that I think feels extremely satisfying about my work in the world is I feel like I have created an artifact for my children that I didn't necessarily think about as I was writing this but as I've done this I feel as though I've done something very powerful and giving them this gift having written this book for them so so those are pieces. I think feel very satisfied buying about putting my work out there in the world and then thinking about maybe people who may not respond as positively. I won't just be completely honest. Your lands and say we won't compliance. Yeah so I honestly I do not interact a whole lot with review the my book or those types of things so i. I don't feel like I know a whole lot about how people might not positively be responding to my work. I know it exists out there but I just feel for me. It's not super helpful for me to spend a lot of time engaging in those spaces all right last running life questions would you tell your younger writing self Something valuable you've learned and that you cure your around with you now as a writer that you wish your younger writing self at nine. Yeah when I think about my younger writing self I feel as though I would want to tell her to trust what's happening to just trust the process of growing as a writer. I feel very strongly in the writing life. It can be very easy for us to compare ourselves to other people and other writers in the progress other writers are making and I. I mean I'm a human being. I've have that I've had those experiences as well and I. I definitely feel like if I could go back to my younger self. I would say to her to trust what's happening in your own writing live. Trust the writer that you are becoming and also to just keep working on your craft That at the end of the day. That's the thing I come back to is. I love writing and part of why I love. Writing is that. I have grown as a writer and I think it's important that we continue just keep growing as writers image. Might a difference in your life. I'll absolutely yeah so let's talk. Let's talk about that Jamaican Plant. What is less? You got a little rage. Quick rate here. A plantain is not a banana but they are close. They both share common ancestry with the same ancient plant. The seeds of modern varieties are sterile instead of sowing seeds to yield new fruit. Immature suckers are taken from the parent and planted elsewhere. Just after I finished graduate school. My mother took me to visit Jamaica during that trip. I told my uncle in Kingston that I was Jamaican. He shook his head. No I laughed but I think this gesture directed to my sister would have hurt her when my friend with a similar complexion to mind told me that she didn't really think of me as being black a great sadness gripped me. I think a lesser sadness would've gripped my sister. Perhaps we are both whole and yet both incomplete. If my sister missed out I missed out to last line. I've been thinking about that. You know both whole and yet both incomplete. What we get for Louis though. I think the idea that I was hoping to bring to the surface is that yes we are. We are both full of who we are. We are identities and yet perhaps there are connections. That are in a way missing from us that we are not holding onto that we are not necessarily grasping or integrating into our lives. And so so I wanted there to be that Kind of separateness between this idea that we are. We're good. We're fine who we are as beautiful and yet at the same time there could still be elements that we long for and I think it speaks to this idea which shows up in other ways in this book of satisfaction with where we are who we are and yet a longing for something else to that exist and I think that's what I really wanted to convey in this moment well listeners.
