Well, here’s the news I wish I didn’t have to give.
As some of you know, I’ve been a caretaker to my mother for a few years. She applied for a reverse mortgage a few years back in order to make ends meet and to help me out of an unfortunate situation. Back in September, mom passed, and the balance became due. But, in contrary to what we thought, I could not pay the loan back in installments after her death. From that moment on, my home was headed for foreclosure.
Today, that foreclosure completed. I’ve been given some time to vacate and find somewhere else to stay.
Unfortunately, my personal situation doesn’t afford me many options, and the only option I have open to me is to return to Ohio.
It’s with a heavy heart that I inform you that I’m leaving the Atlanta area.
I thank you for the past couple of years of learning, and imagery. I love you for showing me a part of this city and this culture that I adore with all my heart. And I’m sorry that I couldn’t do more to contribute to this community.
You are all, in your own way, major inspirations, and losing you is unbearable. I don’t know what’s next for me, but I know that it will pale in comparison to you all.
God bless you,
