was having coffee by myself today before class and met a woman with dreadlocks, shes had them for 14 years. she was very nice and had coffee with me. Shes moved here from Jamaica,and was telling me that it takes her hair so much longer to dry here then there and that so many people rag on her hair here. I said tell me about it, I get some negative comments about my hair too. she looked at me and said our locks are our love, and our strength, you remember that. she wished me a good day and i was left alone with my coffee.
