Two Steps Forward: Blasting head first into the 21st Century

By at 16 January, 2009, 2:22 am

So I have to say, gadgets and gizmos aren’t my thing. Call me old fashion if you want to, but there is something sacred about using a pen and a piece of paper and actually writing someone or even better dusting off those CDs (no, they aren’t Frisbees) and LPs and jamming to the music […]


Confessions of a Biker Chick: Finding Love in the Big City XXIV

By at 19 December, 2008, 12:00 am

I am a closeted rebel wanting to come out and reek havoc upon the masculine psyche; sensual red lips, tight leather pants, sky high heels and a devious smile for the brave soul willing to challenge me to a race. I have always had this fantasy of riding down an open stretch of Americana with […]


Life Cycles: Finding Love in the Big City XXIII

By at 11 December, 2008, 12:00 am

Why is it that the man of my dreams has a fucked up track record of failure? I guess it’s true that I believe solely on the promise of a happily ever after. Maybe that is the thing that keeps me going in life – hope. I already know that happily ever after is never […]


The Big O

By at 20 November, 2008, 12:00 am

The Big O (Freedom song) The day after Like any other moment of drawing together Riding through to the perfect sigh The enriching pain and pleasure Of recognition is at hand. No longer will I hide My beauty My spirit My power The style that lives on the darker side Walking though humble Afraid to […]


Rebirth of the Slick: Finding Love in the Big City XXII

By at 10 November, 2008, 9:22 am

I have been reborn. I haven’t found the time machine that takes me back to the days when things were simpler – childhood – being catered to, feeling the weight of your mother’s smile impress itself upon you like leaky faucet, consistent and at times nerve racking but ever missed when it isn’t around. We […]


Turning in My Cape: Finding Love in the Big City XXI

By at 20 October, 2008, 8:36 am

What exactly do I have to offer a potential mate?  Such a random question right? For those of us that are single, especially us women folk, the first thing that we think about is making “the list” – You know the list, that holy grail of qualifications that a potential mate should be endowed with […]


The Newark Chronicles – Part 1: Finding Love in the Big City XX

By at 7 October, 2008, 12:00 am

Since lightning struck once, why not twice? On a rare evening off, I decided to willingly cross state lines in search of food, music and fun.  Instead of trekking into Manhattan, I decided to give Newark’s nightlife a try. Why is it so much easier to feel saucy when you know that there won’t be […]


Crossing State Lines: Finding Love in the Big City XIX

By at 18 September, 2008, 9:05 am

Luck be a Lady Tonight. . . Home of bucolic skies, rich green foliage and the chance to take a deep breath after running the rate race.  Where is this place – Well it’s New Jersey.  For as long as I remember New Jersey has routinely been the butt of my jokes – you know, […]


Dreaming in Conception

By at 5 September, 2008, 12:00 am

Dreaming in Conception The fullness of my belly pooching out in its gentle roundness will someday be the host to almond eyes and a bud mouth, skin like tobacco, smelling of sweaty charcoal drenched in honey. Or maybe wild hair and smilingly mysterious eyes, aquiline nose and A smile that will teach Con Ed a […]


Stand Clear of the Closing Doors: Finding Love in the Big City XVIII

By at 22 August, 2008, 12:00 am

What is it about this 28th year that is forcing me to delve deeper into (cue the Darth Vader sound effect) DARK SIDE?  So I’m a bit spiritual and I do sort of buy into the whole numerology thing – with that in mind 2 + 8 = 10, which is equal to 1 + […]



By at 15 August, 2008, 12:00 am

This is an ode to the hairs that have mysteriously crept onto my chin, downy black silk which I can’t ignore as being there. This is a love song to the hardness of my jaw line; To the new creakiness in my knees which will slowly change my sky high fuck-me’s to boho sand scoopers; […]


Lil Wayne: The Poet?!

By at 11 August, 2008, 12:00 am

So I admit it – I, like over 2 million other people in this country, I wandered my way into my nearest music store, others into their favorite website or illegally downloaded Lil Wayne‘s Tha Carter III.  Yes, for the first time, I have willingly jumped on the bandwagon, and I have to say, his […]
