On hypocrisy.

So one of the (many, many, many) take-aways from recent (and not-so-recent) national events was that I need to write. So I will. This won't be me writing about the fear and grief and despondency I've experienced over the past year*, emotions that seemed to spill over late Tuesday near midnight as I woke up [...]

we ain’t kids no more…

I'm sitting at one of my favorite Starbucks in Miami, staring out the window at the sky. On my left, the sky is covered in ominous clouds that threaten rain and fill me with a tinge of despair. On my right, a bright light blue sky with white streaks of shapeless clouds fills me with [...]

Cognitive Dissonance — or, remind me who I am

I've been having this struggle lately (/slash/ not-so-lately) and I was thinking maybe you've been there too. Or maybe you'll be there someday. Or maybe you've seen someone who's been there.

I spent the hours writing. mostly purging my [...]

Conversation in the Clouds.

Current goings on in my head are annoying. The back and forth is getting tiring...and old. This may be more of a venting post but I think there's some good thoughts for all of us to ponder toward the end so sticking through the crazyness if you can may be worth. Per uge (or as [...]

I be workin’ on my ishhh — or, where i’ve been

Unfortunately, there's too much ish to even attempt [...]
