In Tribute I Do Pay


I have always been writing, and in turn, have always been reading.

It was my favorite authors who inspired me to write, unknowingly giving me the push through the literary door that I needed in order to express my ideas on paper.

So, this post is in tribute to them:

Zora Neal Hurston...Stephen King...Truman Capote...Jamaica Kincaid...Ernest Hemingway...Richard Wright...Langston Hughes...James Baldwin...Alice Walker...Toni Morrison...Flannery O'Connor...Sophocles...Alex Haley...Jean Rhys...Anais Nin...Homer...and Wallace Thurman.

Thank you for your words about love, fear, murder, family, money, race, incest, discrimination, war, history, slavery, sex, and skin color.

Who Is Your Favoite Author?

You Had Me At...



Recently, a friend and I were talking.

"Do you believe in love at first sight?" he asked.

"Nope. I believe in lust at first sight." I answered.

"Why can't it be love?" he wondered.

"How can it be? You don't even know the person. They could be just a really sexy lunatic."

In my opinion, love at first sight is unrealistic.

I once made the mistake of telling someone that I loved him on the fifth date. Needless to say, he went running, stayed gone for a few months, came back...and we never talked about it again.

I discovered that it was not love, but lust that made me say what I said. Honestly, I said it after a night of heated physical play...not a night of talking about our plans, goals, and dreams of a future together.

Do You Believe In Love At First Sight?
