Through Tires and Tribulations

Last Friday night I had a great time catching up with my old co-workers. I suggested we meet at Coyo Taco, my FAVORITE restaurant in Wynwood. We broke bread and ventured out to explore Wynwood Walls. I even came across a life size Super Mario statue! On my way home, I'm sitting at a light… Continue reading Through Tires and Tribulations

Daniel Caesar – Freudian (Album Review)

A few months ago, I wrote a piece for Vibe Fridays: Daniel Caesar – Get You. In it I talked about Daniel Caesar, a relatively unknown from Toronto with buttery smooth vocals, church background, and soulful lyrics about love and life. Today I'll talk about his debut album, Freudian. Let me say this clearly. Daniel Caesar… Continue reading Daniel Caesar – Freudian (Album Review)

Alabama and Pragmatic Black Voters

Now that the smoke has settled from the heated Alabama election and we push forward towards the largest tax restructure in our lifetimes, what does Alabama tell us about the future of our nation? Why did black people choose Doug Jones over Roy Moore? This is Part Two of my piece from last week. If… Continue reading Alabama and Pragmatic Black Voters

Movement Monday!

Picking up an old hobby can be quite refreshing. In Chicago, I used to do Aerial Silk and Aerial Yoga. I have been looking for a place to continue this practice for two years. Today I reflected back on my first Aerial class and to where I arrived now. I admit I am very rusty,… Continue reading Movement Monday!

In God I Trust

The past year has been a tough one for me. I've had highs and lows that have sculpted me into a man who I would not have recognized months before. I did one of the best things in my life and possibly one of the most dangerous: I asked God for something. *gasps* I know… Continue reading In God I Trust

My Identity in Him, Her, and Them

Until recently, I've been desperately searching for a sense of meaning while loneliness, hopelessness, and restlessness swallowed me whole. Sickness moved in as I began losing confidence in myself and the world around me. I lost my ability to interact with others as people have been become more apathetic and the notion of the United… Continue reading My Identity in Him, Her, and Them

Democracy off the Rails

Wednesday started off in a positive note in the midst of the maelstrom of heartache and headache that the past year has been for a black person living in 45's America. For those unplugged, yesterday Doug Jones won Alabama's Senate seat after a highly contested battle against Roy Moore. While it would take me an… Continue reading Democracy off the Rails

He Loves Me…He Loves Me Not Part 2

He said, “Your different and special in every way imaginable. I want you Christina, I want ALL of you not just bit and pieces like you give everyone else.” My stomach DROPPED...I sat in silence. In the past I struggled with allowing people to love me. He won't be faithful. I'm not good enough. Can I be enough for just ONE person? He spent all this time trying… Continue reading He Loves Me…He Loves Me Not Part 2
