Fabulous Fringes: A Poem

In response to being described as a radical fringe element… Bring it!!

Fabulous Fringes

I love the edges of things
places of intersectionality
where ideas meet
thinking is broadened
perspectives are shared

there is beauty in the edges
the fabulous fringes
that decorate our interactions
and build understanding

30 Days of Autism is a project designed to fight stigma, promote civil rights, and increase understanding and acceptance for those who process and experience the world differently.

This post is participating in the T-21 Blog Hop. Here is a bit of information about the intent and focus:

“This month will be about social justice. It will be for calling out, for demanding, for saying “we are *not* going to be silent”. Call it solidarity for the angry. We’ll call it “architects of change”.

Acceptance, fairness, equality: these things are not to be taken lightly. We are not all on the same journey. Some of us have taken different roads; it is at our common intersections that we will now meet.

For three days, add your posts, both old and new. Let’s set the tone for a year of change.”                                            Jen
