The Spirit of Sunday Dinner

Brian is asleep.  He has worked the last ten nights straight.  He has also spent his days working on his part-time job.  Most of you know our situation.  He can’t pay child support.  We have a child.  I can’t get an apartment in a safe and decent neighborhood.  We have made a decision to share a place until things change or until our Sarah Bear goes off to college.  Either way, this thing of ours has an expiration date.  How we spend this time of incarceration is up to us.  It’s our choice to…See More

And Yet Another Girl Is Living My Dream

I get emails from all over the world.  It was no surprise when I received an email with a photo attached.  Happy, shiny Black couple beaming from the base of the Eifel Tower.  They were in Paris.  I deleted it.  Photo proof that another girl was living the dream, offered to me, but in my stubborn mind had cast to the side.             One cold day when I was living on the East Coast a few years ago a very good Black man came to me, out of the blue, and said, “I’m going to marry.  I’m…See More

Grant's Mum is Wrong

I have two sons and two daughters.  Yet I spend almost every waking hour fretting, worrying, crying, and agonizing on one child.  Joslyn Lavonne is 29.  John Van II is 24.  Grant Worthington is 22.  And my Sarah Vaughn is 14.  Yet I concentrate over my one son and beg Allah the Merciful for him to find his respect, dignity, purpose and reason.             Joslyn is a beautiful college graduate who keeps her own house while attending graduate school.  My Sarah can have the world.  Grant is his…See More

Systems of Support

Posted on October 2, 2012 at 12:49am 0 Comments

Sometimes I don’t think I took enough time to think why someone selected me to be their friend, lover, or associate.  I should have.  It seems as if I was always just happy to be wanted or needed that I never questioned why.  Once in a circle, or assigned to a role, for some reason, I was determined to stay “on the job.”  I was so afraid of failure that I didn’t mind losing.  Today,  I examine opportunities and it seems as if the things freely given are those which have the greatest cost in…

Love and Force

It’s the end of my writing hour.  My son has just walked in.  I hear him in the kitchen and he’s eating the last of the butter burgers and hand cut fries.  He pours some tea and walks down the stairs into the basement.  Mentally, I’m checking on all of my cubs.  My mind also rests to that man, Himself, down the road.  I see him as I hope he is.  Resting.  Well.  And my good friend sleeping warm with puppy dreams dancing through his head.  I wonder if all six are well.  And I hope they will…

Dear Vonda, thanks your message. I certainly wish to communicate with you. I will do that within the next few days as at present I have my eldest daughter whom I am bringing to a medical healer. She has been ill for a while and so it would seem best to go beyond the medical world to a healer.  The healer, a woman, ofcourse fills me with curiousity. Anyway I did not want to keep you waiting for a reply  - be sure that I also wish to read more of your blog that I sat up reading two or three nights ago. I look forward to communicating with you. Best regards, Jocelyn
