It was early morning; Ming was still waking up.  I didn’t want annoy him, so when a song began to play, I asked, “Is this ok?”  It was Bad Girls by MIA. He danced a little bit, to indicate he liked the song. “Oh, you’re a dance slut,” I said.  “You would dance to anything. … Read More »

how to have worth

Hey, what do you think?  It’s September.  My life feels like a patch of briars.  I’m trying to get comfortable.  Unfortunately, I’m made of human being.
