"Your words are a spell," proclaimed @loveiswiseill
"Use them wisely." In January of this year, Loveis wrote a list of all the things she hoped, and wanted, for the year. And then she spoke them aloud, weaving her dreams into her waking world.
Top of the list: work for The New Yorker. This despite the fact that she was only 23, a senior in art school, and just getting started.
The first week of June her art graced the cover of The New Yorker. The second black woman in history to illustrate one of their covers. And surely, one of the youngest.
Our conversation will come out sometime early 2019 but I wanted to give you this wisdom as we wrap up one calendar year and enter into another. To think about our words as spells and what we want to weave and how we want to live.
