RELEVANCE, in the common law of evidence, is the tendency of a given item of evidence to prove or disprove one of the legal elements of the case. In other words, it examines probative value to make one of the elements of the case likelier or not.
RELEVANCE in life is examining your relationships. Exploring your contributions to your community. Are you living an authentic life? Do you make the world a better place, or at least provide comic relief? How do you connect with others? Do you evolve? Conviction is inherent in Relevance, as so many things in life overlap and intersect.
authentic relationships=MAINTAINING RELEVANCE
I fancy myself as a relationship whisperer, which is probably code for co-dependent. It’s similar to a horse whisperer but without hooves and barn stench. I want to explore intentions and why they don’t always matter but sometimes matter the most. HostileWit lauds all the fuckery that makes us RELEVANT. I strive to be present, relevant to the people in my orbit. I’m very loyal and will call anyone back who will listen to me curse and calm me down when I think I’ve got herpes. Again.
Years after Ferguson, I’m in communities I can’t imagine now being without. I vow to have uncomfortable conversations about race, justice, and the things in life that really matter. I also plan to talk about topics like my uterus and Funyons. Those things are disgusting. Clarifying: Funyons are disgusting. My uterus is glorious.
