Musings of a Busy Mind
I wonder what you hear when I say I’m tired. I wonder if you think me lazy. I wonder how many more sentences I can squeeze out while you figure it out. I wonder how long it will take for you to understand my language. I wonder… because I really am tired. I wonder but… Continue reading Musings of a Busy Mind
#Lekkimassacre One Year Later
My greatest hope is that when the citizens go out to vote in 2023, they remember. They remember who is for them and who is not. They remember that instant gratification will rob you of your future. They remember that together we are stronger, better and capable of much more than we can ever imagine.
I did it! 😱
I did it. I actually, unbelievably, not-in-my-dreams-but-reality did it! I self-published my book. An entire 26-chapter, 44,000-word work of fiction. Arrrrrghhhhh! Honestly, I still partly feel like I'm in dreamland and the other part of me is screaming that it wasn't ready to be published but... let me tell you something. I started the book… Continue reading I did it! 😱
2020, Can We Please Stop Now😔?

To Post Or Not To Post
February this year marked twenty years since my mother passed away. That's almost all my life. As significant as this is, I've spent even more time than usual wondering how different my life would have been if she was here. And I’ll tell you a secret - I've caught myself feeling sad that I don't… Continue reading To Post Or Not To Post
Blowing Out Candles
Recently, a conversation I once had with my dad has been coming to mind. I can't remember the context of the conversation but I vividly remember an experience he shared. I'll share a little background to shed perspective on this story he told. I've always wondered about the inevitability and what could be described as… Continue reading Blowing Out Candles
We Need To Get Angry
Anybody can become angry - that is easy, but to be angry with the right person and to the right degree and at the right time and for the right purpose, and in the right way - that is not within everybody's power and is not easy. - Aristotle It seems to me that the… Continue reading We Need To Get Angry
There Has To Be a Purpose
Death is not the greatest loss in life. The greatest loss is what dies inside us while we live. - Norman Cousins How cruel, how rude, how disruptive. Many times, death doesn’t send a warning, no preparation, nothing. It just comes when it does, leaving heartbreak and chaos in its wake. I think it’s one… Continue reading There Has To Be a Purpose
