“Hope bounced back and forth to the sound of merciless concrete, and polished Nikes were like knives reaching for revolution in the air…”
Happy is the person who meditates on wisdom
who reflects in his heart on her ways
and ponders her secrets
pursuing her like a hunter
and lying in wait on her paths
and listens at her doors
who camps near her house
and fastens his tent peg to her walls
who pitches his tent near her
and so occupies an excellent lodging place
who places his children under her boughs
who is sheltered by her from the heat
and dwells in the midst of her glory
– Ecclesiasticus / Sirach 14:20-27
“There is always something to do. There are hungry people to feed, naked people to clothe, sick people to comfort and make well. And while I don’t expect you to save the world I do think it’s not asking too much for you to love those with whom you sleep, share the happiness of those whom you call friend, engage those among you who are visionary and remove from your life those who offer you depression, despair, and disrespect.”- Nikki Giovanni

In the meantime, I need you (and your friends) to SUBSCRIBE to this blog for a chance to win prizes, play games, gain further insight into the book by asking questions, post your reviews, and for a chance to read sneak peek excerpts into Season #2.
Writing is something that brings me joy, and that makes me happy regardless of the gain. But in addition to writing, I also like to have a lot of fun, and to inspire as many brothers and sisters as I can through innovation and creativity. In short, I really enjoy doing what I love, and what I LOVE is to engage my readers in games, activities, and contest whenever I come out with a book (for those that remember The Aftermath blog).
That said, I would really appreciate you SUBSCRIBING to this blog to get a better understanding of what this screenplay series is all about and for the opportunity to engage in open discussions concerning the gift of writing itself.
This blog will feature literature, articles, quotes, and poetry periodically. But for exclusive access to poetry please visit my sister blog @ ahouseofpoetry.wordpress.com.
