Nina Simone believed freedom was a life without fear. Some believe that choice defines freedom. And others are imprisoned by too many choices and no ability to decide. Frozen. Was there a choice with cancer? Was there fear? Was there freedom to understand within the fear? Were we/you robbed?
To stay, to leave, to be present. Facing what is given to us, might be bravery. But is freedom a choice? Does this equate to power or powerlessness?
