The day I see Putin dress like this, I will believe that all is well with Russia, and I will go for a visit. Until then, I can’t even come back, there is this new law now that if you’re not registered or some shit like that, you show up in Russia and you land in jail. I have dual citizenship, and I have no registration in Moscow (long story). So I either have to denounce my Russian citizenship, or brave it and pray to bureaucracy gods, because most of the new laws change so quickly, you don’t have time to blink, and, as usual, nobody knows anything for sure. So who knows, maybe I’m safe.
Also, wrote 2566 words today, none about Russia and ALL about America, black America, in fact, and all the pain of segregation. No, not all. I will never know all the pain, but I’m trying to understand. And still sick, but drinking tea and feeling better, especially when gazing at this lovely portrait below.
