One of my favorite Amy Winehouse songs is called "What is it about men?". This is a very good question, but even better is 'What is it about anyone?' man or woman. The older we get the more fairy tales become drastically unbelievable. In this day and time, figures we looked up to on television, … Continue reading Cancelled: A Short Story About Your Fave

A simple prayer that covers … Continue reading Black History Month Week 2: Acceptance
