I initially thought of skipping this last post, “Something Beautiful,” typical would be nature, that specific real/famous woman that captures your thoughts. However, last night looking for an old photo of myself, I happened upon the number of my first girlfriend (from Oakland, CA). See youngin’s, we used to ask girls for their numbers, and actually call them. So, there’s “Something Beautiful,” back when we were young and dumb, and thought we knew everything.
The manuscript Blue Lines is the fictional coming of age narrative of a young California woman Key Yemaya Walker, and her 2 year growing journey through school, love, and life period piece, written by Kenneth Suffern, Jr., taking place at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill between the years of 1997 – 1998. Loosely based on true events, and experiences during that time, told through the eyes and voice of the main female protagonist, a freshman first attending the school.
