There are angels everywhere.
This is a picture of me with two dancing angels, Vida and Doni, who taught an Afro-Brazilian and California mix dance class on Sunday morning. We stand here beside another sparkling angel; their body covered with small, glistening mirrors. I thought that was perfect because then anyone who looks at that angel close enough will see themselves reflected in that angel.
From the leaders of the Coalition to End Sheriff Violence in LA Jails, to the wise elders who spoke at CSUN about Spiritual Activism, to the revolutionary poets in seminars and on street corners, I am surrounded by angels…announcers of (in)tense veracity: messengers of divine warning, encouragement, faithfulness, and love.
