Privilege is me thinking, crap, I haven’t written a blog post in 13 days, while Baltimore burns and suffers.

What do I have to say this week about being a single writing mom while so many mothers are mourning their children, dead at the hands of unchecked police brutality?

What do I have to say this week about being a single writing mom while thousands are dead in a massive earthquake in Nepal and I’m shopping for a new convertible crib/toddler bed online?

What do I have to say this week about being a single writing mom who, while a survivor of domestic violence, is not being ripped apart on social media for outing the abusive behavior of an apparently feminist-supporting poet and publisher?

Not a damn thing.

Here’s who I’m listening to, though, at least on the subject of #BaltimoreUprising:

That old adage about not saying anything at all if you don’t have something nice to say? Replace “nice” with “of value.”
