I’m Lawana Porter, a Black woman thinker and writer in Dallas, Texas. Why blog? It’s a good question, one I’ve pondered a while.

There's much to think about in this time in the U.S. As a Black woman, I crave to be part of the conversation. I want to share thoughts that matter and hopefully spark conversations that can shape who we are as a people and who we aspire to become.  2021 was an incredible year with so much change and heartbreak. In some ways, it was the epitome of the best of times and the worst of times. I'm desperately hoping for a better year in 2022--for my own people and those everywhere. I think we deserve better and I want to be part of the solution. 

If you’re a curious thinker, I invite you to seek me out and share your own views.

Writer, thinker and someone who wants to contribute to the global conversation in hopes of leaving the world better than I found it. Throughout my life and career, words have intrigued me. As a reporter, I covered Dallas City Hall and the school board. As a campus-based liaison, I crafted newsletters and info pieces for parents in the Dallas Ind. School District. For two decades before retirement, I worked in school PR as a member of a dynamic communications team telling stories about Dallas ISD personalities and programs. Now, in retirement, I'm fortunate to write what pleases me, which is what this site is all about.
