becoming Selma

The only way I could become Selma was just to leave all of me behind and slowly become her. so I sort of was her for a year or two, I guess. and I decided not to bother so much about the similarities between me and her because you could look at it in a way that that was something I didn’t have to worry about then because I was already okay. like, I know what it’s like to be a single mom. I know what it’s like to have a son, you know. I know a lot of things, you know.
