Life presents variables; learning how to cope in order to master, minimize, or tolerate what has come to pass.
Confessions of an Artist
What is art? What value does society really put on art? Why are artists not viewed the same way as other blue collar jobs? Be it abstract fluid art or 40 stanza poetry, why is such a accomplishment not valued? I don't ask these questions to whine, I'm just confused. In the modern world of Instagram and Facebook, SnapChat and Ticktoc, you would think skill, talent and artistry would be more valued. Rather, it appears to be the opposite. Speaking personally, I have found art to actually be a language of its own for me.
An Open Letter to Simone Biles After Winning the Bronze on Beam
Dear Simone, The last few weeks were rough, weren't they? Rough for gymnastics fans everywhere who have watched your 2021 Olympics struggle yes, but more importantly for you: an incredibly talented young woman with a dream and the chops to pull it off finding your body and mind unable to cooperate during one of the most important competitions of your life.
Are Morphine Angles Real?
We lived four miles from the Mississippi River, in a three-room apartment on the third floor, up three flights of skinny stares. we had a kitchen a bathroom and a bedroom/living room. Plus of course Elmo my Dog. we had moved from Kansas not more than three months earlier. One morning I walked into a walk-in clinic to see if there was a way to ease the stomach problems I was having. I had no clue the journey I was about to embark on, I sat in the Waiting room with others sitting Quietly like waiting on unsure news.
Birth on The Bridge
I find myself at that bridge a couple of times a year now. The salty tears no longer accompany me. Reflections in the water and those in my mind bring me peace.
31 years of living
The ups and downs I've faced over 31 years of living. Man the things I've learned and experienced, some people may never believe the things I've been through but they are all so very true. Majority of my childhood is blacked out because it was too painful to relive so I keep it buried deep inside me, I let little glimpses come out for the right people but not too much, just enough to understand me.
If Somebody Doesn't Like You, Don't Take It Personally
Unfortunately, we live in an unfair world. There are "good apples" and "bad apples", and some of them we just can't pick out and throw away. On this planet, we work, go to school, attend recreational programs, shop, do errands and other activities that require continuous interaction. Although some of the what we call "bad apples" can't always be left out and discarded, some of them can be! In personal relationships, we choose who we want in our "jars of people" and we often keep and store the "good ones in our jars". In professional relationships, we don't always pick and choose who we want in our "jars of people". For example, we don't get to choose our teachers in school, no matter how we view them. We have to learn to tolerate them and accept them for who they are. Over time, we get better at dealing with them.
I’ve been making music for 7 1/2 years as of writing this. And for as long as I can remember I’ve always said I was a mad mind or insane. I’ve recently been grappling with this concept after having to do some growing up and it’s frightening to say the least. After suffering a complete mental breakdown and being admitted into a psyche ward I find myself asking how far is too far now. I was content before while silently suffering telling myself “I’m stronger than this and I can handle it” however I now wonder if I’m genuinely mad or just mislead and it bothers me now.

Fire Ants Burn
It occurred to me this morning that danger comes in small packages. Has anyone questioned why an infestation of bedbugs or fire ants can be incredibly damaging? Now, I'm not an expert. But in my youth, adults told me fire ants are a threat to both humans and animals. They can cause health problems and in rare cases, death by reactions. All it took was my friend not wearing shoes that day to step on a mound of fire ants, my brother running his toy mower through a hornet's nest in the ground to get severely stung.
A More Subdued Birthday
On August 4th, I turn 30 years old. I’ve been considering for months what this milestone birthday would mean to me - joked with my friends about my body giving out, examined and reframed my personal goals, tried to make plans even though I’m working summer school.
