Greed is Good, But Contentment is Better

“Greed, for the lack of a better word, is good. Greed is right, greed works. Greed clarifies, cuts through, and captures the essence of the evolutionary spirit. Greed, in all of its forms; greed for life, for money, for love, knowledge has marked the upward surge of mankind.” – Gordon Gekko (Wall Street) Is greed good? … Continue reading

The Distribution of Disrespect

A lot doesn’t surprise me nowadays. I wish it did then I could say the strange things that happen are outside the norm, not the norm. Apparently, Danielle Bregoli, the infamous “cash me ousside” girl from internet fame has gotten a record deal. Yes. I’ll wait for you to stop laughing. I have no problem … Continue reading

Don’t Wait To Take A Hurrication

Harvey is gone. Irma is on the way. I’ve lived in Louisana most of my life. We have four seasons: football season, carnival season, crawfish season, and hurricane season. After Hurricane Katrina, most along the Gulf Coasts takes every hurricane as a serious threat, AS THEY ARE. Some hunker down and prepare to ride it … Continue reading

The Social Responsibility of A Mega Church

This is not a Joel Osteen basing post. When then-Hurricane Harvey was reported to make landfall in the Houston-area, my first thought was Lakewood Church, pastored by Joel Osteen would be a perfect evacuation site. The church was formerly the Compaq Center, a multi-purpose sports arena. To me, it would be a perfect place to … Continue reading

The Reproduction of Potential

I ate an apple today. It was delicious. Red. Not overripe. Juicy. I ate most of the apple. Yes. Most. When I got to the core, I threw it away. Why? To me, what was left was the seeds. At that moment, the seeds were invaluable and worthless. They were trash so I treated it … Continue reading

With Thanksgiving right around the corner, many people are  not looking towards the holiday. When families get together, there may not be laughs. It may be a time for nitpicking, judging, and bringing up traumatic memories. With many Thanksgiving laughter becomes shouting. If this is your type of family and you are able to avoid … Continue reading

The Finish Line

This morning I caught up on the Emmys. As a writer, I watched so many catergories for writers and as I watched. I felt insignificant. I felt like I hadn’t achieved as much as I wanted to do. After plagiarizing on this blog back in 2011, I had to go through self-reflection. Is this what … Continue reading

Stirring Up Trouble

I read a great quote this week. When a toxic person can no longer control you, they will try to control how others see you. The misinformation will seem unfair, but stay above it, trusting that others will see the TRUTH, just like you did. – Jill Blakeway I love this quote because it simple … Continue reading

Don’t Feed The Trolls

Trolls!! I’m not talking about fairy tale monsters who guard bridges. Trolls is a term applied to people on the internet who intentionally make inflammatory remarks to spark anger. Some do it for laughs. Others do it because they are miserable and like making others angry. Thus, while many fall into the trap of arguing … Continue reading
