I'm exhausted, 2016... and it is your fault. I'm exhausted by the constant "Mights" and "Maybes" happening throughout you: 'there "might" be work this week', '[friend/friends] "might" be at [insert event] tomorrow', '"maybe" I'll do this this or that, depending on money or transportation'. I'm too tired to decipher "mights" and "maybes" any more, and I'm tired of using them … Continue reading I’m Exhausted – And I’m Not Stopping
When I started a draft of this blog a few days ago, I never would have imagined that I would be adding the following sentence to it this weekend: "Muhammad Ali has passed away."

However, there were quite a few peaks, valleys, plateaus, barriers, and roadblocks that I had to navigate over, around, and through. In no particular order, … Continue reading A Wild, But Not-Wild, 2015

A special group of most of my best friends. I first met 2 of them (J.R. and Allen) 14 years ago, 3 more (Angela, although we had been in band together … Continue reading Too Much To Be Thankful For, To Put In A Facebook Status
After moving in 2004 from 34th Street, I moved into an Efficiency apartment in Hampton Hall, a set of studio/efficiency apartments off of York Street, just south of Downtown Louisville.
