“Are you sure, …

“Are you sure, sweetheart, that you want to be well? …I like to caution folks, that’s all.” said Minnie, interrupting her own humming to sigh and say it, the song somehow still buzzing right on. “No sense us wasting each other’s time, sweetheart.” The song running its own course up under her words… “A lot of weight when you’re well. Now, you just hold that thought… Just so’s you’re sure, sweetheart, and ready to be healed, cause wholeness is no trifling matter. A lot of weight when you’re well.” ~ Toni Cade Bambara, The Salt Eaters
