  • Who Licks the Letters?

  • Things That Go Unsaid

    How often have you had just the right thing to say at just the right moment only for the moment to pass with that thing left unsaid?

    This blog is about an opportunity to recreate those moments. This is what I would say if the moment magically appeared again and it would all come out perfectly!

A Million Little Events

Dear Life, It seems I can never get over how small six degrees of separation really are. A few years ago my best friend C-Leen was into making this board game at every party where she connected all the six degrees of separation in the life of the person being honored. People then had to … Continue reading

Graduation Day

High School on Steroids

Dear High School, As I walked across that stage on the final day of High School in the Spring of 1999 I couldn’t wait to make the long-awaited escape into the real world and away from you. I took a deep breath and looked out at the promise of the horizon that stretched before me. … Continue reading

The Independent Woman

  Dear Independent Women, I have been like the rest of any number of woman across the nation, bouncin’ along in my nearly paid off car, headed to my nearly paid off house, letting my independence scream through my speakers at all who dared to look my way.  If any questioning, threat of questioning, or … Continue reading

Fearing Colorado

Dear Eric Harris, Dylan Klebold and James Holmes, There are so many things to love about Colorado it’s almost impossible to imagine that you are hiding within all the beauty that state has to offer, waiting to strike and splash a bloodbath upon the canvas of that beauty, leaving it almost unrecognizable. My favorite thing … Continue reading

Date ‘n Game

Dear “The Way Things Are Supposed to Be”, Boy meets girl and girl meets boy and they live happily ever after with a dog, a cat, three and a half kids and a white picket fence. Or do they? What happens if boy makes it into his thirties without meeting girl and girl is in … Continue reading

IB and Joey

The Hip Hop Offspring of Love Jones NYC

Dear Hip-Hop, I remember the exact day when I first fell in love with you. Unlike Sanaa Lathan’s character in Brown Sugar it was not in a park listening to Dana Dane, Slick Rick or Dougie Fresh battle in the Bronx. Rather, I was on a road trip with my family and my father put … Continue reading

clinton

Dear President Clinton, You are a symbolic figure who was publicly caught and publicly annihilated for what you did in private and the thing is that while the entire American public threw up their scarlet letters in disgust and quickly threw rocks while living in a glass house, you are not the only one who has some version of a … Continue reading

Not the Righteous Rape

If it wasn’t for Date Rape He’d never get laid. Aaaahh… Sublime circa 1992. There I am at 12 years old rebelliously using my parents’ coffee table as a stage with three of my best friends, belting out the lyrics to Date Rape. To us there’s nothing more to that song than a catchy beat … Continue reading
