On Pride, Not Prejudice

On Pride, Not Prejudice

Milo Baughman and Such Relics

A million little particles of insult disseminated into the air, covering me in the disappointment dad believed me so stupid to think baking soda would ever be snorted. Drug-free mom had explained to my brothers and I the reality of substance abuse at an extremely young age. Was he stupid? Now I see dad just wasn’t present enough to measure the awareness of his own.

Home Beyond Lodabar: From NYC to Wichita, Kansas and Back

Perhaps the New York City skyline sufficiently espouses the greatness of man, placing a seed in the mind of its youth that all things are possible; maybe it is the sheer beauty of the lights sustaining the wonder of its children. An island with over eight million people, each containing stardust, provides enough energy to recognize human ability; if one knows the ability of man, shouldn’t one recognize the power of God?

As the rest of the world binges the latest Netflix content, I’ve gone old school on IMDb TV, watching the old series, Dallas, for the very first time. I was struck by the words of the patriarch, Jock Ewing, to his son Bobby in one of the more intense scenes: “If I gave you power, you’ve got nothin’! Nobody gives you power.

Harlem Shuffle

Harlem Shuffle

And the time came to let go of my white people on a residential rooftop view and waterfront backyard with a baseball field on the side. With all its man-buns, diverse restaurants, bars, Polish culture and consignment shops, Greenpoint couldn’t compete with uptown Manhattan, where a renaissance of black excellence ascends history at more counts than Basie. Long held my heart has Harlem Word.
