Good Thing I'm Not A Blogger

It's been nearly three months since posting an update here. Yeesh-o-meesh. And to think bloggers do this everyday...and as it should be.

Needless to say, there's been A LOT going on since the first of May. Actually, most of it is a blur. So, let's hit some high points and see what I can remember...

====Broken Toe?====
Yeah, never a good idea to be sitting at a desk barefoot, whirl around to the left, and smack your foot into the side of the desk. Purple and red are lovely colors on the toe next to the pinkie toe. Not sure if I actually broke or fractured it...but it happened on a Saturday afternoon...had to take a sick day on Monday...hobbled a bit on Tuesday and Wednesday...and by Friday was feeling pretty normal.

====Crazy Work Stuff====
We've been undergoing research and tweaking and rebuilding here at WUSA9.com. Please excuse our mess, we've got some dust bunnies everywhere! Still doing the 7am - 4pm workday.

====Teaching Young Married Class At Church====
A new class started at church has been for young married couples. We have three in the class now. We're a few weeks old and looking to grow...it's been a blessing.

====MySpace====
I've started creating a little page in MySpace...and was considering moving this project over there...just to consolidate. Check out: http://www.myspace.com/webmonkeydc

====When 50 cents equals 25 bucks====
Yeah...when you slap a few coins in the meter hoping to get back before time's up, it's better to have 50 or 75 cents more...than to come back and hour after your time expired and have to pay 25 bucks. But at least one can pay online. Woo-who!

More to come...

May We Never Forget

On this 20th anniversary of the September 11 attacks, I'm posting below a story I wrote on the 10th anniversary. These are my reflections on that day.  Looking at the first paragraph, it's interesting how times change. No one has asked me questions of where I was or what I was doing. I'm not sure if many of us have forgotten but more likely we're so very distracted. We've navigated almost two years of a pandemic that's taken and changed so many lives. We've navigated political and cultural changes poorly and emotionally to the point of creating more divisions.  We are not the country we were the weeks and months after 9/11. The bipartisan efforts then were refreshing. The amount of American flags flying proudly and in solidarity was inspiring. Today, it seems many despise their own country and its flag. But even this is not new. While she has stumbled over the years and will continue to do so - America will always be the most amazing country in the world. It

Risks Of Being Vulnerable

Being vulnerable can be so rewarding. It can also be horrifically disappointing. Stereotypically for guys, being vulnerable with thoughts and feelings is simply against a man's nature. It doesn't come naturally. Emotions are saved for when men are alone or to share only with spouses or best friends. I think of the Tom Hanks line from  A League of Their Own : "There's no crying in baseball!" Anger seems to be permitted but not fear, worry, or tears. More often I've seen people apologize for getting upset or tearing up than for showing an angry or passionate reaction.  The more reflective emotions seem to be reserved for women. It seems stereotypically more natural for women to be shedding tears or showing concern. Yet, too much or too frequent emotional displays can also bring scoffing or ridicule. It's like there's no winning when it comes to being vulnerable. This is why being vulnerable is hard and requires intentionality.  The reality is that be

Grateful During Unemployment

Two years have passed since I last scribed in this blog. Much life has transpired during that time. Too much to really unpack here. Then, I was a few months into a new public sector role with the City of Baltimore and starting to pursue the dream of rebooting the paranormal broadcast TV news series I co-created with Darren Dedo called "Unexplained" as a YouTube docu-series "Unexplained Cases."  Today, I am unemployed and "Unexplained Cases" has grown but has yet to generate revenue.  In July, I was dismissed from both my part-time weekend job at Grace Community Church and my City of Baltimore job. I've never had the pleasure of being released from two jobs in a month. Technically, I was released in June from Grace and my separation date was July 3. My last day of work at Baltimore was July 23 and my separation date was September 23. Unless one has been through an extended period of unemployment, one cannot understand the emotions that are stirred. For
