#XD30 – Nineteen – So Much, So Little

I have a so much and so little to say.


A range emotions, thoughts, wishes, moods that are itching to get out of my head and travel through the my arms to my fingertips.


I also just… don’t have much to say at all.


It’s a creativity stuck between a rock and a hard place.

#XD30 – Eighteen – Father’s Day

I didn’t grow up with my father. I don’t know too much about him. I know where he is, and I know that he’s alive.

I think I’m amazing, and I don’t think I’d be amazing if my life were different…including him in it.


And I suppose I owe him a thank you…for not being there.


It’s the best thing you’ve ever done.

#XD30 – Seventeen – 3

I have three minutes until 12.


Quick thoughts:


I’m tired. I’m hungry. And some how, I’m full.


Let’s try writing something substantial tomorrow.

#XD30 – Sixteen – Pray

It’s always interesting that we ask folks, or even ourselves, to pray about something when you need it, and never praying just to say “thank you.”


I have to work on this. I’m working on this.

#XD30 – Fifteen – Brown

I’ve been so drained creatively due to work and life…


However, I was reminded today of a quote and all of a sudden, I met the winter of my discontent.


“I know a boy who is sky soft brown. Dirt leaps for joy when his feet touch the ground.” – Toni Morrison.



#XD30 – Eleven – Dancing On The Smooth Edge

“It’s been a while since I did this but I think I still got it.”

Diana thought the same thing to herself. She smiled and they both slow danced to Blackstreet’s “Before I Let You Go.”

Arthur’s was now Katra Lounge where it was 25 enter and 30 to remember. Diana and Vann knew they’d be in good company.


The danced the night away, and made the night beautiful.


Vann drove Diana to her home on the hill, and in true gentleman-like fashion, Vann walked her to her door.

“I had a really great time tonight, Diana. May I see you again?”

“I’d love to see you again.”

Diana kissed him on the cheek, entered her house and closed the door. She slid down to the floor with bliss.

Vann walked away smiling hard the same way he did when he asked Sarah out on a date.

“I still got it.”

This concludes the story. We’ll revisit something new tomorrow.
