Song of the day (while I'm working) Space Cowboy (David Morales Classic Club Remix) by Jarmioquai (Let me tell you something, if you are in a funk or need to work out-this dude has some really great bops.

When Does Adulting Begin?
Who tells you when it's time for you to really adult and not just get by?
Overwokeness…Is there such a thing?
Another beautiful day in the neighborhood and I don't feel like cooking because it's about 8000 degrees outside. My garden is thriving and strawberries are about to become super sexy. I decided to risk my life and go outside (with a mask on) and check the news. Y'all. Dear Reader. These folks are talking about … Continue reading Overwokeness…Is there such a thing?
Let’s Talk About Music
I love music. I love all types of music. I can get down to whatever you want...okay? When I write, I like to be in a mood. I'll make playlists on Spotify to put me in that specific mood. One of my newer and more favorite playlists is when I'm writing about hoodoo. (No, I'm … Continue reading Let’s Talk About Music
Let’s Talk About the Future
When I was a kid, I always woke up on Saturday mornings and watched The Jetsons. I was so excited because I just knew in 1999 we would have flying jet cars, I'd be able to pop over to the moon for lunch and everything like that.

What’s Up With Me
Psst...you wanna know what's going on in my head?
Overwhelmed and Exhausted
Everyone has those types of days when everything becomes overwhelming. I know I had one the other day. Instead of trying to ascertain the problem, I just lash out at everyone. Don’t get in my way, I’m coming for you. I think it’s from holding everything inside for so long and never saying what you … Continue reading Overwhelmed and Exhausted
Make It Make Sense
Wtf happened to the Justice League movie, Whedon? Since it’s the beginning of allergy season, my youngest and I try to go out as little as possible. She looks like some red eyed, crying sad child and I’m her mother, the sneezing fool. Since the new “Justice League” movie was release and I’m adjusting to … Continue reading Make It Make Sense
Cut the Bull…Ain’t No Excuse
I hear the whining. I hear the blah blah and I think sometimes writers live to come up with reasons not to write. "I'm feeling overwhelmed..." "It's this damned pandemic..." Stop. Just stop. If there's nothing for you to write, there's always something for you to read and I'm about to give you a gigantic … Continue reading Cut the Bull…Ain’t No Excuse
