Born in Harlem. Raised in The Bronx. Wrote multiple Award-Winning Cast and Crew screenplay "What If" and "Trickster." Educated. World traveler. I now reside in Long Island, New York. I adore writing. It's the only time I get to play God.
I remember it all like it was yesterday. It was Friday, October 13, 2011. Friday the 13th. I should have named these two Jason Vorheese and Michael Myers. Literally, it was two weeks before Halloween. I passed all my classes that semester even math and science my two most difficult subjects and I was happy. Very happy. My dad was happy too, of course. Any parent would be. I was eleven years old. I felt entitled to ask Dad to buy me a puppy. I have always wanted a puppy and it seems a good a time as any. I swore to myself that if I had one, I would take good care of it. I would learn to train it, I would wake up everyday to walk it, feed it, bathe it, etc. I'd never be too busy to spend time with it. And it would be my best friend. I have always wanted a puppy. They are so cute. And I hear dogs are truly loyal and love you unconditionally. Something like how God loves us. Actually, did you know dog spelled backwards is God? So there you have it. Dogs are truly awesome.
At eleven years old, I would say that the imagination is most vivid…..I imagined I was a full-grown woman, a virgin. What if, by the transgression of one person, all death came to reign through that one, how much more will those who receive the abundance of grace and of the gift of justification come to reign in life through the one person Jesus Christ?
My Last Wish
HER My last wish. What would it be? I wished for so many things in this world. And I’ve gotten all of them. Now, that I’m about to be 51 years old, I look back at all my life and look what I see; I see someone has granted me all my wishes. Everything I have ever wished for; have been giving to me.
“Liar!” I heard a voice say. Actually it woke me up. It’s 3:31am. This is great. I’ll never get back to sleep now. I lit another Newport and thought to myself. I recognized the voice. It sounded like my mother. My mother is dead. She died of congestive heart failure. A code blue. A few days later I was wearing black for her funeral. The color black to pay my respects and mourn. It was always colors I remember to symbolize a fucked up situation. Honestly.
I do what brings me inner peace. I do not always do what is popular. This is what brings me inner peace. This is what makes me truly happy. Let me describe it to you. First understand that whenever I do this, I have the ability to transform reality. Yes! You heard me. I can transform reality. I can invent the fairytale. In order words, I can do whatever I want.
That pretty fish in the picture is me. Ain’t I a sight to see? And the shark…well I’ll tell you about that. I’m a Betta fish. Betta fish are among the most popular and beautiful pet fish in the world, but that wasn’t always so. The genus Betta contains more than 73 recognized species, but the fish most people are familiar with is Betta splendens or Siamese Fighting Fish. Now go to the beach and look at my home. It’s even more astonishing. When a human stand by the seashore, a person will no doubt marvel at the ocean’s power, its restlessness, its vastness and depth. The ocean is my altruistic brother. It’s really all I have. You may have wondered how the sea creatures feel, surrounded as they are by water. Thousands of feet down you can find crabs and other sea animals walking on the ocean floor. The tremendous pressure down there would crush a man, but the bodies of these animals are built to tolerate it.
A Special Day
Even the blindest of blind men would concur that Ruby Godfrey’s physical beauty had no parallel. Apart from her perfect beauty, she is very arrogant and uncouth when it comes to listening and respecting others, rather she feels they should obey her because of her highly privileged lineage. The powerful Godfrey family that Ruby belong to own and control the enchanted Garden of Kiza in the deep desserts of South Africa. For the days of her life as a child, she was given many riches and consumed only the finest of golds and treasures and the best of the best including anti-oxidant rich fruits, grains and herbs that led her sustaining a comfortable life, although she was highly dependent on her older brother Rasheed, an Enchanter who is heir to the Garden of Kiza.
