Day 16. A Paragraph A Day: 30 Day Challenge

yesterday i had one of the most liberating experiences in my life. i felt and sensed a lot of different things but the most important thing that i experienced was the present. i experienced the moment. i experienced the present. i wasn’t concerned with the future. i wasn’t worried about the past. i was there in that one moment with a cup. the only ting that mattered to me was that cup, what it could do, what i could do to it and if i wanted to do anything to it. in that moment there was no pain, there was no sadness, there was no heartache, only life. i finally understand why people say live in the now because when you do life becomes more simple. yet, i had a thought when my experience was over. if i live only in the now, it is really good to forget the past but then how do i prepare for the future? 

Day 8. A Paragraph A Day: 30 Day Challenge

i have to start putting my money where my future is.i am a writer. i love to write. i write poems. i have started writing a few novels. i have a few hundred ideas for movies and tv shows that i have started treatment on. the thing that has always inspired me to write has been black super heroes. in fact it is the lack of black superheroes that got me back into writing. so why don’t you hear a lot out my super hero stuff? i have done anything new with it since 2007. i haven’t gone to any comic book convention, EVER, and there are two that take place in Chicago. i do not have an answer for why i don’t put my money where my future is. all i know is that if i want to create black superheroes so kids that are like me can see faces that are like theirs saving the world. i better get started soon.
