Lift every voice [again] and…?

It's time for a re-post. From Saturday, January 21, 2017 to early Monday, January 23, 2017 a storm system with about 5 waves of severe weather ravaged the Deep South. In Albany we experienced another set of, equally destructive, yet totally different, storms. Even more citizens are left with nothing, and some lost the most precious gift of all: their lives.

Lift every voice and…?

On Monday evening, January 2, 2017, around 10:00pm EST, a storm system came from Alabama through southwest Georgia.  The height of the event lasted around 30 minutes, with folks who were awake huddling in closets and bathrooms riding out tornado warnings. That storm, regardless of how it's been classified, ripped through the heart of Albany, … Continue reading Lift every voice and…?

The Great Unveiling

I've succumbed. I told myself I never would.  I'm a Google fanatic.  I love having one place for everything of mine. But man, WordPress is slick.

Unless

This day comes around every year, and every year it makes me nostalgic for kid's books, summers rolling in the grass, and a strong sense of discomfort.  Seems a strange combination, no?Today is March 2nd, Dr. Seuss's birthday.  Every year on this day, I read The Lorax, and every year that book and what it … Continue reading Unless

Love Letter(s) to the World

Beloved,There are times I wish that I didn't love so much.  There are times I wish it were easier to separate myself from the joy, hurt, heartbreak, fear, hope.  Yes, there are many times I am grumpy, unapproachable, and rude.  There are times when I do not want to interact with other humans, regardless of … Continue reading Love Letter(s) to the World

Disagreement *Should* Not Presume Disdain

I consider myself to be a pretty calm individual.  It takes a lot to get me angry to the point of getting into a fight with another individual.  In fact, I can probably count on my hands the number of knock-down-drag-out fights I've had in my life.  However, that doesn't mean I have no opinions, … Continue reading Disagreement *Should* Not Presume Disdain
