WHAT TO EXPECT ENTERING YOUR SIXTH OR SEVENTH DECADE

Life has been quite a journey. I’m approaching 71 years young and still going strong. At many times in my life, I have surprised myself and achieved something that I thought was off the table, or walked through a door that I thought was already closed to me. People said that falling in love was no longer an option, but I got married at 69 years old. People said I should stop working, but I still m...

FINDING YOUR GOD

She stared at him from across the booth. His hair was in his eyes, making it that much harder to read him. Would this be worth her time? “So what do you think God is like?” she asked, a total shot in the dark, hoping to gain some sort of grasp as to who this stranger was. “What do you mean? Like do I think he’s some old guy in the clouds with a long ass beard?” he returned with a straight face. “Y...

“SHE’S A BLACK LACE BRA KIND OF WOMAN:” A HISTORICAL LOOK AT BLACK LINGERIE

Fashion is a force. It identifies, defines and expresses all aspects of ourselves. But fashion also changes over time, and what was once ugly or taboo becomes celebrated and lauded. For this edition of “Historical Titbits About Underwear,” I decided to take a quick look at how black lingerie went from being barely regarded to being the sex symbol it is today. At the start of the 20th century, most...

LOVE IS THE MESSAGE–FOR MAMMY

Close your blue eyes, don’t forget We made a promise to meet inside our dreams Pretend like I’m there holding your hand I’ll hold on to the way that feels   You’ve always been the strong one You’ve always carried all the faith You find the colors in the black and white You’ve always seen the best in me   Your words have found their place In between and through my heartbeats So even when ...

EMPTY SPACES

Every night as I sleep alone in my bed, I find myself always facing the left. According to my sleeping position, the wall comes to my right, but I’ll either be facing the ceiling or sleep on my side, facing the left. “But why?” I wondered. When I sleep facing my left, I can see my tiny room entirely, like a panorama view in a camera. Now my bed happens to be in one corner, my room door diagonal to...

WHO DO YOU THINK U R

who do u think u r  i wish i could go one single day where every time i had something to say i didn’t start with a stop to think “well what do they want me to say” what words, what joke would it take to convince anyone to give me an extra second of their time of their lives even just have them pretend they give one shit about me as a human.  i wish i could go one single morning without...

THE GIRLS BEFORE ME

She burned through you like an incense,   Slow.   Until there was nothing left at all.   The wooden stick was all you had left,   But you threw it away.  I will search everywhere for the remains,   and I’ll keep it close.   I will soak it in oil and light aflame,   so your love won’t have to feel the pain   of burning out again.     Author: Hannah Grimes  Author Bio: I’m Hannah from Sain...

LESSONS LEARNED STARTING AN UNPLANNED BUSINESS

I never planned on being a startup business entrepreneur. It happened by accident. But after suffering unbearable pain, numerous medical misdiagnoses and ineffective surgeries, there was no choice.  For four long years, I suffered from vulvodynia, experiencing sharp, stabbing, burning pain in my pelvic area, making it impossible to enjoy sexual intimacy with my future husband. The physical, emotio...

COMING THROUGH THE SLAUGHTER

TEARS   Warm salty wet sorrow  Drips down  Down down  Catch it before it falls  Falls falls  False words  False feelings  Feeling false  Words false  Gone  Gone…    Broken Skin  I have endured many skewers to the heart  Violent words  Fist to skin  Kisses to another  Contempt   And felt I deserved it  For some wrongs I must have caused.  Beautiful words   Holding hands  Looking into each other eye...

THE PERFECT ANSWER

Life from the beginning was far from perfect. I was raised by a single mother, from the tender age of four and a half. My father decided to follow his heart as a man rather than his responsibilities as a husband and father, and consequently left my mother with no choice but to pick up those broken pieces.   I remember feeling absolute anger, sadness, and confusion, and amidst these conflicting fee...
