“Peace is just something we work toward, every day. It’s about the things we can become. It’s about the things we should un-become. It’s about changing our hearts when they need change, no matter how scary that is.”
Ra Avis is a poet, author, and blogger who lives in Long Beach, California. She has written two books, Dinosaur Hearted (which I wrote about here), and Sack Nasty: Prison Poetry. Although some health issues have kept her from blogging lately, her blog can be found here on WordPress at Rarasaur.com, “where frightfully wondrous things happen.”
Ra’s birthday was yesterday, August 27. Happy birthday, Ra!
