I am stricken with joy, overwhelmed by anticipation so deep it's a flavour on my tongue, a taste at the back of my throat, welling over and over till my sinuses burn with sheer and utter delight in life. Yes I am aware that the sentence above is a prime example of how not to use a comma but I DO NOT CARE MWAHAHAHAHAHA!!! Why you ask? Whywhywhy? Because I am happy. For the first time in a really long time I'm catching glimpses of the gleeful creature I was born to be. I no longer burn bright and uncomplicated - my colours have thickened, deepened. I am searing light and blood red depth, tears and laughter like rich, viscous honey-drip. I am grown and my joy has changed but I've found it again - I can see it and touch again. Thank you God for this blessing, for this feeling. I am so grateful to finally be saying goodbye to numbness. And now for the BOOTY DANCE OF GLEEEEEE!!!!

These images are from a shoot I did for the Black Accountants Association 25th Anniversary. I met a lot of amazing people - people who clawed their way to success and then did not forget their roots. It was an experience that I have to say strengthened my faith in our ability as individuals to make an actual difference.
