I’ve stopped giving advice (or providing an opinion) unless explicitly asked for it. I’ve held for the longest time the same position that most living souls don’t want you to problem solve, they want their choices validated.Read More
I’ve had anxiety about driving after my car accident. It comes and goes, an ongoing general feeling of uneasiness. Memories of the accident replay over in my head, triggered at times by seeing an Audi…Read More
But Satan Been On His Shit
Two Thousand and Eighteen for my family; immediate and extended has been incredible. We’ve had some lows but mostly been high. For me personally there is no greater example of God being the greatest and Satan trying to tear everything down than the last few weeks of the year.Read More
Fantasy Vs. Perspective
Creative imagination, unrestrained fancy. A capricious or fantastic idea; a conceit. An imagined event or sequence of mental images; a daydream fulfilling a wish or psychological need. Obsolete, a hallucination.Read More
My observations are born from conversations with people I interact with at work, at home, at the coffee shop, on a run, in transit —Life. Most of them could be fleshed out into whole ass essays but ain't nobody got time for that.
Michelle and I visited with our great couple friends and soon to be neighbors in Harrisburg. The two observations below materialized from breaking bread, and drinking drank with them.Read More
This shall be known as the summer of thunderstorms. This morning on my drive to work I watched a young man offer a young woman his umbrella in passing, I don’t know what words were exchanged but it must have been fly, as I glanced back through the rearview mirror; both moved in the direction originally traveled by the young woman, both smiling uncontrollably, both moving through the rain with enthusiasm and a positive outlook.Read More

People Who Don't Hear Me
In social settings, I Am generally reserved and feel most comfortable one on one or one on two. Most of us like the energy in the room; loud music, laughter, or sports broadcasted across large screens -- These are all nice but in order for me to enjoy myself, I have to charge up my energy to participate.

Lol, I'm just serious.Read More
Food for thought.
Sat down at the bar inside of Cedar Street Tavern to order lunch, incidentally I had a small garden salad with honey mustard dressing and a chicken salad sandwich on wheatberry bread with a side of fries. I do it.Read More
Although I Am a consumer of music, I Am also creating. Creating memories on my morning run, while working out, on my walk to/and on the bus, or while I'm working. While we are watching movies, watching our favorite shows or breaking bread — the music we hear has the power to fuel us continually at levels more than just words.Read More
To Me Language
I take stock in what is off putting for me when conversing with others. Having that awareness keeps me honest about what and how I communicate. Excluding family, close friends, and living souls I Am comfortable around, those people whom I consider family but ain’t blood — because we are who we are around them.Read More
Tomorrow is my first sister's birthday (writing older sister sounds rude ;) and as I am going through my little contretemps with Geneva I’m reminded of how I treated my folks at the same age. In retrospect I believed everyone was responsible for my shortcomings, I was selfish and self-centered.Read More
