IT’S FATHER’S DAY

This is my tenth Father's Day. When my first one came around my son was about 6 weeks old. By then I was officially among the ranks of the sleep deprived and utterly confused. Since those days there has been a lot of living going on. Growing too (especially Dev who is now 9 feet [...]

I CAN DO MORE

THE BLACK DADDY LIST: IT’S ALL GOOD

For 2009 I'm taking a break from "The Black [Dad] List," mainly because it's too negative. I haven't totally abandoned the idea of negativity because I'm human and I have my moments, but I'd like to try to take positivity to a whole "nuva leva" this year. I'm enjoying the projects that I'm working on [...]

MEAN PEOPLE

I think I'm tired of mean people. (I say "I think" because I'm not sure if I'm mean people myself or not.) I don't mind people who say or do mean things for the sake of comedy and to make others laugh. Heck, I'm one of those people. But what I've had enough of are [...]
