A common #Gullah/#Geechee word that’s also found throughout the Black diaspora in languages such as #Naijá (#Nigeria) and various Caribbean creoles is “guh.” Though conditions of colonialism were (are) ugly, us descendants of displaced Africans having common vocab across the globe is a beautiful bond that I cherish.

On three separate occasions, years apart, Mama helped rescue two of my cousins from house fires, resuscitated the back to life, & did the same (CPR) for me after I mysteriously stopped breathing when I was two. She had no CPR certification; she learned it from reading & saved three lives. I can never repay her for that, but the least I can do is restore the home she lost to fire. This project has proven to be quite arduous, but it’s a labor of profound Love for my Mama… a literal hero in our familial Gullah/#Geechee village.

Mama said she has to drive her car to the mechanic “cos ee broke.” I asked her how she can drive it there if “ee broke.” She said “well, ee broke, buh ee’n broke up.” lol True.
