LET’S CHILL, LET’S SETTLE DOWN

Is there a difference between settling and compromising? I’m in a number of single’s groups on Facebook, as well as signed up on dating sites. When I’m not being an introvert, and hiding from the world in my comfort zone, do go on dates. Well, maybe I should call them social experiments, or learning experiences. Or, I should say, comical episodes in this sitcom I call a life. No matter who I go out with on dates, there’s always one topic I love to debate and discuss; the age oldRead More

Le sigh. Excuse me while I take a deep breath before I touch this topic. 2017 ended with an influx of allegations of assault touching nearly every part of American society.

He’s the same age as me, single (we both are) and we both see eye to eye with our career goals. I’m strictly business but can’t help the fact that I’m attracted. We work close together and I think I’m starting to catch feelings for him. I need and love what I do so don’t wantRead More

African father helping son with homework

The first memory I have of my father is the day he picked me up from my home in Queens, NY, and whisked me off to Buffalo to visit with his family. All of them were strangers to me then. And now, 37 years later, many of them are still strangers. That visit with him was magical. Before that night, I was not even aware that I came from two people. I had no knowledge that I even HAD a father. But that night, I saw my first Atari 5200,Read More
