Love in All the Little Things

Ever step on a crunchy leaf on the sidewalk just for the melodious sound of the crunch? Ever tried blowing kisses to the moon? Do you walk down the street brandishing a delicately picked flower like it was a magic wand? Because I do. All the time. I don’t think. I just do. I walk…

Peanut Butter by the Spoonfuls

I swear I could eat like 3 jars a week. This increase is due to my new “Meat Only On Saturday” Diet. Yep, I gave up bacon until brunch. That was the saddest break up ever. No pork, beef, chicken or any of the sort until Saturday. I let myself slide with fish twice a…

Others all around me, passing by me, all seem to have it. I ask to borrow it, most are willing to lend. Just when I thought I have it, it slips through my fingers like water No two days are the same. I am never the same person Tears won’t help; Fighting does no good…

College — Lies They Told Me

I fear you may think I am a pompous dickehead for saying this but it must be said. Allow me to preface this by saying that I am in no way saying that college is bad. Not at all but that it fails to answer the promise that it calls for. I can show you…

An Open Letter to Harriet Tubman

Dear Mrs. Tubman, I have looked all over for you and could not find you. This saddens me to my core. I have so much to ask you, so many things to tell you. I need your advice and your help. Today I cried harder than I remember crying before. The kind of cry that…

So Icy

So Icy… So Icy…. What Gucci Mane said. I get icy sometimes. Less summer time twerkfest more cyanide in the chardonnay kind of icy. And yes, I know that life is full of highs and lows, ebs and flows. This I certainly know. Let’s talk about today, shall we? Can we converse? In my typical…
