  • Empathy – The World Needs More Of It

    What is empathy and do you practice it? The Mirriam-Webster dictionary defines empathy as “the action of understanding, being aware of, being sensitive to, and vicariously experiencing the feelings, thoughts, and experience of another of either the past or present without having the feelings, thoughts, […] More

  • Why Government is not the Solution – And what is

    And what is the most likely solution? Government will most likely always be a necessary social construct. While there will always be those fiercely independent types who elect to live as far away from governmental authority and control as possible, there will likewise and conversely […] More

  • Can I Live?

    Can I live? Yes, everyday black people breathe differently than others. Because breathing differently means knowing and acknowledging we don’t have the same experiences as others on a day to day basis. We walk around with 10 ears and 20 pairs of eyes. I as […] More

  • THE CHOICE IS OURS

    My friend, Diane, serves lunch at Saint Vincent de Paul. Daily she serves meals to the lines of the homeless and down-and-out. Voluntarily she does so: to anonymously give back to her community as well as to support her spiritual practice. Not everyone there is […] More

  • Ancient Farming Technologies

    There is no doubt that technology has advanced by leaps and bounds over the last century. Some technologies … computers in this particular instance … are already outdated by the time they hit the retail store shelves. Nobody is advocating giving up computers and going […] More

  • Stop Pretending Black Lives Don't Matter

    We must use our voices now more than ever to protect those we love.  The color of one’s skin should never dictate whether or not their life is deemed worthy or not.  Blake Lives Matter.  Period.  There should be no discussion where someone disagrees with this.  Would you want to worry about a loved one every time they stepped out the door because of the color of their skin?  The African American community doesn’t want to do that anymore, either.  They never wanted to do so in the first place. We have to step up, and we have to do better for fighting for one another.  We must start spreading love instead of hate because ultimately spreading hate and not breaking these racists stigmas are costing people their lives more and more each day.  I hate that I had to write this piece because it means more people have died.  We must stop pretending their lives do not matter.  We must.

  • A Year Later, Kinda Sorta

    I’ve found myself in significant reflection this week about various topics—one of them being myself.  I think during times like this, we can all feel overwhelmed to the point that we are painfully down on ourselves. We’re allowed to have those moments, but we cannot stay there.  It’s essential to climb out of that hole. Even if we’re clawing our way out, and it becomes the fight of our of life.  No more than ever, we have to remember that self-reflection is a good thing and that self-care is vital.  Take care of yourself, and the rest will fall into place.  I hope you enjoy this piece I wrote as a reflection of a previous article.  It is also linked within this link if you want to read it first.  If you do, you will see the shift in my mindset over this past year.  I hope you enjoy and stay safe out there, folks.
