This so moved me that I went and bought Lorde’s Sister Outsider. I’ve been thinking for a while about writing something about Shakti, which is essentially that erotic feminine power (that is available to men too), which is the creative life force of the universe. It needs to gel in my brain a bit more before actual writing takes place, but what you’ve written here and Lorde’s powerful words have helped move me a bit further along. Thanks!
