Zero Percent Chance

Day 33- 34 What do you do when you are told there is “zero percent chance” of that happening? Told you are in the very small percent that it doesn’t work for? Told you are too old? Told that your chances, even as small as they are, are shrinking by the day? Told to never…

Muscle Memory

Day 31 and Day 32 Sitting in the ER, the ultimate destination for a Father’s Day, Jiornee holds the heating pad against the left side of her neck. An hour earlier, she woke up complaining of not being able to move her neck. Then her arm going numb. After some probing she revealed her newfound…

Seven Languages!

Day 30 Headed out to meet up with some family at a local lounge. When I say local, around here, that’s anything less than 1 hour to DC. His name was Eyob, our Lyft driver. Part of why I enjoy taking Lyfts is because I love hearing people’s stories of where they’ve come from and…

Today….It’s ME!

Day 27 -Day 29 Before flying was as common as it is now, when we would pass the airport, my mom would say, “Look. Today, someone is flying somewhere on a vacation or to visit someone. How exciting!”  Sadly, it was never us. We didn’t fly for the first time until in our twenties. Nevertheless,…

Behind the Counter

Day 26 Eleven days with a headache and cough. It was this morning that I realized things weren’t normal and not progressing as a normal cold. After some expert medical googling, I came to the conclusion of the likely diagnosis of a sinus infection. Cue urgent care and antibiotics. Mucinex and Tylenol extreme sinus. All…

RIP…While Passing By

Day 25 I’m sure they had family. I’m sure they lived a certain life up to that moment. They were important to something/someone. I can’t get these thoughts out of my head as I pass by two deer that appeared to have been hit by cars lying dead along the highway. I have always had…

Lord, IF it’s You…. (in progress)

Day 23 -24 Peter walking on water. This miraculous , assuredly life changing event, was captured differently depending on which gospel you read. On one hand, the notion of simply alternative perspectives is an obvious answer to the difference in tale. Yet when we peel back the initial simple answer, we see that how each…

Prince

Day 21 Realized I didn’t write .. despite thinking about it all day. That’s progress right ? Prince has a lawsuit in progress headed toward settlements despite being dead .. think on that. Settlement relating to a 2007 YouTube video and the concept of fair use .. crazy! What’s the legacy?

Journey of Discovery

Day 19 Spent this day chatting with my oldest son. Organic in nature, a whole day of just talking. About everything …from racism, to college, to filmmaking, and relationships. As a sit and admire his own journey of discovery, I am ignited to be on one of my own. Admiring his season, his grasp of…

Stay Woke

Day 17 and 18 I have come to realize I don’t always have the best view of a situation while I am currently in it. While I was on active duty, in the Air Force, I fussed and complained. I remember wishing, most days, wishing it was all over and how stupid the rules were….
