my dad is an athiest physicist, my mom is a reading researcher into tao, zen, judaism and whatever i tell her about sufism or kemet/orisa.
but a friend pulled me in at a young age.. he terrified me that the world was going to end and that the anti christ was gonna come. so i joined sunday school and the choir. those songs brainewashed me i think. a lot of the voices i hear are strongly related to themes of the songs we sang for many years as a young child up to high school!
as far as literature goes, im smart as hell! i have read lots of it and will read more. too bad there are no books in hell, i want to read it all!!
