I am pleased to announce several new writing projects, all non-fiction. At age 64, there are certain things I need to say, and not in a fictionalized manner, and that includes the sequel to the romance Novel, New Kiss Horizon which I am proud to say is also NON-fiction
- All I have is a working title, and it is paramount that I tell the truth about myself; no one else can, and yes; I do indeed love my Thing, with all my heart! seen with me above.
I have too many wonderful things to say to let it pass as fiction. Yeah, at age 64, I am in love at last. You don’t know when its going to happen, but I knew from the very fort Kiss; well, no need to go into all that, but yeah, his Kiss is something very special
all true, as lived.
2. I will also be writing a book about my son.
A certified Mensa genius! Dont let anyone tell you the brown young men are not as highly intelligent as anyone else. My son scored in the top 2% of IQ, not an IQ test designed to bypass the cultural bias in the “standard” test, but on the Standard test. The world need to know about more Brown and Black women and men who are or can be achievers. They exist. One should not be ashamed of doing well!
I can’t wait to write this as only I know the entire story, and I want to tell it while it is possible.
3. A new collection of poetry. I already have selected a title with help from my Thing. I find him so inspiring and in just writing series of texts to my Literary Executor, I discovered the titles in what I was saying to him, implying that had I sent him no texts, I would not have have this need, this urgency to make stuff, this time out of words.
May your journeys through life be as rewarding.
Well, I have several pojects underway, the first is closest to my heart:
I, at age 64, am finally in a Thing, my featured photo is me and my Thing, age 70. Oh the wonder of this because I love this man so very much and will I never love another the way that I love him.
Who knows how long a Thingdom witll last? I do, Forever!
What you do not know is that I was cooking in my apaertment in Michigan when flames leapt from the gas burner, and ignited my my hair! My waist-length hair, I was a regular 4th of July sparkler. Just a couple of weeks ago.
Here is the stove:
Here is the hair that burned off:
I am lucky indeed to be alive! My dilemma: My Thing, Thomas Robert Higginson, always liked long hair which is what I had, completely natural. Was I ever proud of my hair, the way I could swing it, the way I never had to use extensions or relaxer that other women used, no doubt, some men also.
Me with the 100% natural hair I had before:
How I looked after going through the fire:
If you need anything done to you head, go see Pat Freeman. All hair types, any length.
More of how I look previousl, “Breathtakingly HOT!” is what my Thing said.
and me right now:
Are there any set limits? No.
As long as we want, the partners in this crime of Love? A long time coming to be sure! I asssure you, I have no idea what the protocols of Thingdom are, but I am very glad to have it. I have been in love with this man for quite a while, and he surprised me with this Thingdom. I was texting with him all night, and during this, he had put his name on my featured Fb photos, and I opened my eyes to see that he was admitting that we have a Thing after so many years. I have known him for around 20.
Between hair and my Thing, which would I rather have? My Thing, fof course. Nothing can take the place of him. Nothing in this world. I went through the fire for this man! —and only for him would I do anything like this. That’s how much I love him. Always.

Oh, by the way, my Thing is now my Literary Executor!
I am very pleased to announce my thingdom with a man I have loved for several years. Yes; Thingdom on Facebook. Where the entire romance with, well, Bob Holman began. Photo taken in Chicago, Illinois, our first weekend together.
In the photo, I am 60 and he is 66. I do not know who took it, an anonymous person happy to see ths elderly couple taking a walk in Chicago. We stopped and stood on ths bridge that connects us to every possibility of life.
Now we are a thing! –hallelujah!
a whole weekend of firsts! 23 October – 25 October every year!
For this anniversary a most special song, full of meaning for us, “No One” Alicia Keys:
Isn’t Love wonderful at any age!
