If any of you want to get me a really nice present, here is what I wish for: to spend a week with bell hooks. A week in which she doesn't have to do very much work--like, maybe she's writing in the mornings or something, and we can have leisurely tea times in the afternoons, and long dinners in the evening. Sometimes we can be quiet and sit by the lake and watch swans. And mostly I can just pour our my heart to her and ask her all my questions and listen to someone who has been around all the blocks and has a wide open heart and a very smart very alert mind and a beautiful engaged body....that is what I want, should you be feeling like giving me a present.
