Energy cannot be created or destroyed; it can just change shape. This chorus of kindred spirits reminds us that grief work is cultural work and gives us an opportunity to hold space for the recent transitions of Mable Haddock, Greg Tate, bell hooks, Michelle Materre, Gary Smalls, and Lewis Erskine among so many others. As writers, filmmakers, play cousins, friends, and artists of all forms, we engage in a practice of ancestorship by commemorating the ones we’ve lost in ways that aren’t suspended in the past. We reflect on what it means to keep their energies alive as we build more tender, sacred worlds in the here and now.
