Unzip

This is for the zipped-up ones, the upwardly mobile ones who don’t talk about life experiences because they want to keep everyone comfortable. Tell your story here. Unzip yourself. This is a safe space.

The paragraph above is paraphrased from a post one of the characters in Americanah posts on her blog, inviting others to comment, to write something they might not otherwise share online, or off. Paraphrased because her blog content is wrapped up in a race issue. Regardless, though, it intrigued me, this idea that I can invite you to share whatever your experience, not just as  it pertains to whatever topic I have written about. So I extend that invitation to you to…

Go ahead. Unzip your thoughts. Share. 

 

What do you think? I'd love to hear your thoughts as well.
