On Any Given Sunday, you might find me at Starbucks, watching the Sun beam in through the windows, creating dramatic light and shadow. The strong scent of coffee, the sweet scent of cake pops and the sound of music (at times too loud ;)Read More

Currently listening to Justin Beiber (mute your dissent) and this verse goes so hard.
♫ Focus ain't the same if the picture ain't got you in it. In every line my emotions ain't the same if it ain't about you, I don't get it. Ever since the beginning now, you had that effect on me. All I wanna do is you, oh. I mean that so literally. Don't nobody go harder than you. All of the angels must be lonely now, without you.Read More
Because you care. Inspired by an unresolution, and an attempt to organize how I spend my time. I let go of Instagram, Tumblr and Posterous. The latter being the hardest because it was my introduction to blogging and their platform makes it very easy to do. Posting quotes there, images somewhere, music another place and books another instead of using one 'ring to rule them all.
Squarespace is my 'precious.Read More
“I was finally around people that understood me and I didn’t have to explain myself to them. I didn’t have to explain my excessive use of twitter because everyone else in the room was using it too. People didn’t look at me crazy when I told them I was a blogger. It was like finally meeting your real family (sorry mama but I still love you). It was cool to finally meet people that you knew about from on-line. Also it was cool to meet new people for the first time.”
This excerpt is from @CitizenOjo 's *Follow Him on Twitter* experience at the Blogging While Brown conference in the nations capital … he is blazing in the Blogging Firmament with The Desultory Life & Times of a Public Citizen
I’ve never fancied *Did I just write “Fancied” ? … Don’t answer* myself a writer | blogger, I was simply someone with too much time on my hands. Over the past year and few months of being a part of this social media whirl, I’ve learned to manage my own expectations but also realized the power of social media in business and personal life. Power may be too strong a word for most folk so I’ll *Insert* usefulness.
Personally, I’m not trying to push an agenda or save the world but allow the voices in my head to speak *I have to translate because they speak Spanish*
Mr. Ojo’s statement above gives me the perfect flow over my imperfect beat.
I’m Mr.TramueL and I tweet.

I started posting to satisfy the voices in my head not to change the world, but what I found were a great group of writers, blogger's and personalities that have influenced me, challenged me or provoked a thought process and for that I'm most appreciative. Shout out to GI, Sunny D., Ms.Nikks ('cause I am nasty), Cyn, C.Black, Mase' & J.Shin.
This week I went back through my post and cleaned them up a bit; added pictures, cleaned up fonts where I could and er'thang. I noticed that there are topics that I enjoy & are a part of my daily life that are missing from here. There are post on my Posterous that are indicative of those passions, but even then only a few. So in my struggle to find the direction of my space on WordPress I've decided to do what I've always done, post about life's ironic twist & how they may sometimes startle us. I've also started a Photo blog that will include random photo's about nothing.
This year I will attempt to answer the following questions:
- How often do you do laundry?
- Clean the bathroom?
- Floss your teeth?
Two Zero Dimes first Do As I Say, Not As I Do
- Reconcile Passion & Intimacy.
- Don't get carried away by Idealism.
- Not everything has to be revealed.
- Keep in touch with reality as well as fantasy.
- Learn to handle disappointment.
That's my time. I'm at the Public Library 'pose to be studying but I'm talking to the voices in my head.
