Queen of Spades
The Elixir of Evolution (Day 8: CV5 Book Tour)
Greetings everyone! Queen of Spades here. It is Day 8 of the Concordant Vibrancy 5 Book Tour. I hope that you have enjoyed interacting with the past participants and learning more about their involvement in the Concordant Vibrancy collection.
Today, it is my day in the sun, where I speak on my involvement, not as a co-creator of the concept, but as a participant.
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.
