As she transforms their hair, Novelette transforms her clients' lives with powerful love. Laughter, dance, music and ceremonial water wash away the pain. In Novelette's salon, everyone is welcome and everyone belongs.
After seeing the play last night, I have a dream. I am being held by a huge beautiful woman, as black as God Herself. Today, I don my Da Kink in my Hair red baby tee and crawl into bed to seek the Novelette within. I cry for the Shirelle, the Sharmaine, and the hurt child in me. I touch my own hair and I find peace.
What if everyone could see people with the loving eyes of Novelette? What if the world were like Novelette's salon, where everyone is welcome, and everyone belongs? May you find the Novelette in you. May you heal your heart. May you heal your world.
If you get a chance to see the play in Toronto, it's closing tomorrow. Run, don't walk to get tix. It got another standing ovation the other night, and I expect it to sell out.
Thank you, Trey Anthony. You have changed my life with your play. I wish Oprah would invte you on her network, because you could heal the world with Da Kink.
