And now…A new hour begins

And now…A new hour begins

Your brain is feeding you correct information, I assure you. That weird feeling in the back of your mind that says this can’t be happening is, in fact, incorrect. You are here, reading these words. And as it were, so am I. I’ll let that sink in for a moment. You deserve it. Crazy how life goes. For 3 years my Monday schedule included frantically editing and prepping the piece I wrote over the course of the last week. And then getting it shared all over my various social media sites. Stressing over content. Straight up harassing my writers until Read more »

And now we come to…the end of an era

And now we come to…the end of an era

Today, oddly enough was supposed to be the pay off FINALLY for a number of posts about relationships that I thought might be better than all my previous ruthless on relationships post. And indeed I’ll get to that later.   Instead, Today is a day I bring us to a place I knew could happen, but was happy every time it didn’t. Today we end the hour for the last time. What do I mean? Today is the beginning of a goodbye party. For this blog. Oh it will continue to exist, but a transition is afoot. And so with Read more »

And now… at the end of the hour

And now… at the end of the hour

This week we debuted a brand new podcast with a livestream. We said goodbye to one of the founders. We tackled coons, and hoteps. As well as assault, and the HIV & AIDS treatment drug Truvada.     I skipped a couple lines to let that sink in. When this started I literally just wanted to take my usual facebook ranting to a website. I figured it would be like the old days of my Xanga page. Now, now I deal with potential sponsors, have production meetings, worry about our average listening and reading time, and look for brand expansion. Read more »

What Are We?

What Are We?

Welcome to the Secret Thoughts of Reason… Why is it that men get so freaked out when a woman asks, “What are we?” What exactly is it about the words “What are we?” that send you into a frenzy? Does the word “we” equate to “marriage” or “life-long partner” or maybe you hear the word “forever”. While I cannot speak for every woman, I will speak for the sound ones…. When a woman asks, “What are we?”….She only wants to know what is occurring between you AND her. For example: Are “we” friends? Are “we” dating? Are “we” just hooking up? Read more »

Louise ∞ 6

Welcome to the Love World of Reason… “Sorry ma’am my co-worker…” I say as I look at the ground, hoping Louise hasn’t seen my face. “Ma’am?” Louise says laughing, “How old do you think I am?” “Oh no, it was just a way….” I stumble on my words. “I was just being polite ma’am…uh mm…miss.” “Well polite is a very subjective thing wouldn’t you say?” Louise says. “No, uh yes, yes, of course ma’am…I mean miss.” I say, still looking at the ground. I try to walk away before Louise can recognize me. “Leaving so soon?” Louise says. “Yes, I Read more »

Angry Black Queen

Angry Black Queen

Welcome to the Secret Thoughts of Reason…   I was at subway the other day and I saw a black man waiting in line to place his order, and my first thought was: where are these subway workers? They need to hurry up and come serve my black man. No, I did not know this man, I had never seen him before, but he was still a black man…my black man. No later than a few seconds later something happened inside of me that I cannot explain. My thought changed from this is my black man and they need to hurry Read more »
