Lets talk about it: BLOGS Writing has become a way for me to express myself as a creative. I enjoy the freedom of writing about my own journey through this thing called life as well as commenting on current events that greatly impact our culture.

Oh, Hell Nah Nothing is the same. We all look to images for escapism, peace, laughter and a moment that’s tame. But do we need more? Temporary anger over issues can be lame.
