For Cultural purposes: My conversation with Michael Smithe

You can hear the French Quarter and New Orleans upbringing in Michael Smiths voice. Good or bad. Setbacks or flourishing. He never stopped being who he was and you can hear that with some of the conviction in his words as his proud accent reigns supreme. I’m telling you this now because it will become…

Most Nights

They use to call me J-Bird. Now only my mom call me that every once in awhile. I don’t really like the energy associated with it anymore. Flashbacks of small sounds of just a simple click that would get you in a mode. Nothing is safe and if we die here let my sister know…

Thankful Year

I want to start this with all holidays that I celebrate are evil and based on some deep rooted form of capitalism. So I celebrate them for the reasons that make me happy and appreciative of what my values are. Now that we got the wokeness out of the way it’s time for the lion…
