love, life, and the pursuit of liberation
Obviously I’ve been gone for a few days and I hope y’all will forgive me. I’ve had a very busy 2 weeks at work and am now on vacation in Cali, my home state. I did attempt to blog while I was at the airport a few days ago but I’m not quite used to the Kindle Fire and lost the post 😦
In that post I shared three things that made me happy.
1- My valentine’s day surprise from my wife- She took me to see Alicia Keys’ Broadway play Stickfly, which was amazing. Beyond being excited to see a play about middle class Blacks and the secrets and complexities that are revealed when two brothers bring their gjrlfriends to the family vacation home on Martha’s Vineyard, I felt so special that my wife was thoughtful about creating an experience I would love. She even got her (male) coworker to babysit LA for the day.
2- I had taken a step through fear and applied to be a contributing writer for one of my favorite websites, Elixher.com. I love writing but didn’t quite trust that it was good enough. I bit the bullet and applied before I could talk myself out of it and I’m glad I did. I’ve been accepted as a contributor!!
3- Speaking of writing, the second chapter of Pieces of Heris up here and the third should be up tonight. Check it out and let me know what you think. If you really like it, share it with your friends.
So that’s what I intended to post 3 days ago. Now off to work on the other thoughts that have been baking in my mind.
