Yellow Dress

Yellow Dress

 

I remember the bright yellow dress she wore that summer eve. It was like the color of fluorescent

 love shining so bright that night. A special moment in time past, I shall never forget. The winds

blew softly as it whispered its tender cries of calm between us, while the breeze of freedom set

write the vision

Write the vision; make it plain on tablets, so he may run who reads it. For still the vision awaits it's appointed time; it hastens to the end - it will not lie. if it seems slow, wait for it; it will surely come; it will not delay. Habakkuk 2v2,3

The above quote is what everybody should live by. Every idea starts with a vision, but seldom do we write them down, as a result many multimillion pound ideas fall by the wayside, because we either forget, don't…

The society is plagued by diverse problems, including drug abuse, child abuse, domestic violence, crime, child trafficking, sex trafficking etc.

Literary Woes

I am struggling to continue writing my second novel and I've hit a rough spot.  I've written and written and then I just suddenly stopped.  I don't know how to begin again.  Now, that's not to say that I haven't written a lot already.  I have about 200 pages from my first writing.  I was so inspired to write this new book after receiving favorable personal reviews from friends and family on Facebook who read my first novel, "Masculine Strength."  I literally wrote nonstop for three weeks.…

I know personally how tricky and scary it can be. Corporate America severely lacks in diversity, there are only 5 black CEO's at Americas 500 biggest…
