Welcome to Day 8 of the Concordant Vibrancy 5 book tour. Today we are introducing author and poet Queen of Spades. . .
Greetings everyone. My name is Monica, professionally known in the writing community as Queen of Spades.
On Day One of the Concordant Vibrancy book tour, you received an inside look at the think scape that prompted the project.
Today, I am speaking as a contributor to the collection as I answer the following questions.
What prompted you to be a part of the Concordant Vibrancy concept?
For one, it would look a bit strange that the co-creator of Concordant Vibrancy wouldn’t be a part of the undertaking. Moreover, I was curious as to what my imagination would conjure as answers to each theme question.
Which Concordant Vibrancy books are you featured in?
I am featured in all of the books.
Unity: “The Authentic Snap”
Vitality: “Operation Restore”
Inferno: “The Calefaction of Insight”
Extancy: “The Itinerant”
Why did you choose a certain attribute as your answer to CV5’s theme question?
I have always been an advocate for evolution, not just in my professional development, but in my personal development as well. I believe that if one is not open to the process of evolution, then it is impossible to survive the ongoing winds of change.
Share an excerpt from your story.
In addition to the Excerpt poster, I want to share this segment that slightly precedes that language. For me, it speaks volumes because there are probably many who deal with this conundrum:
Additional excerpt from “The Itinerant”
In institutes of learning, all my classes are advanced placement. The color of my skin is a fat fly in a pool of buttermilk. There is no commonality in my classes apart from our collective ability to learn.
When I leave that echelon, exterior forces deem me inferior because of my melanin. The very community that I should be connected to drives me further into isolation, perpetuating correlations between skin tone and patterns of behavior.
Before I sign off, I want to thank all the participants, past and present, who have been a part of Concordant Vibrancy. This collection would not have been possible without you.
