Enjoy The Life

Posted on January 11, 2014 at 11:30am 32 Comments

I didn't get her name until the end of our time together. When she approached me with her beautiful smile yesterday at the National Cathedral, I wondered how she knew me. 

It's so nice to see you here, she said. She asked if I still lived on M St. and did I still work at the school in the neighborhood. I scanned her face, hoping for any trace of recognition. I swear I'd never seen her before in my life.

She spoke with an accent, and wore a National Cathedral badge on…

My Brother and John Lennon

Posted on December 8, 2013 at 6:30am 23 Comments

John Lennon was not my favorite Beatle. I loved him mostly because he and my brother looked so much alike. 

When my brother was in high school, the Beatles were huge. Being ten years younger than my brother, I learned about the Beatles from him. I sat on the edge of my chair and screamed like a hormonal teenager the night they appeared on the Ed Sullivan show. I was too young to have hormones or crushes. But I loved "I Wanna Hold Your Hand," and I loved my brother. You look just…

White Girl Looking In

Posted on July 14, 2013 at 6:00am 11 Comments

When I was in college, a black friend of a friend said to me, "You will never understand because you are not black. You are just looking in."



I remember her words, I remember the house where she spoke those words, but I don't remember what we were talking about. It was, however, important for her to make sure I knew that because I was not black, I would not understand. I would always be the white girl looking in.



I never forgot her words. Even after living with a black man… Continue

Thank you, Cheerios

Posted on June 1, 2013 at 5:29am 18 Comments

My husband asks if I've seen the new Cheerios commercial. He mentions it to me because it is so unusual. He knows I will like it.



It's an interracial family. A white mom, a black dad, and a biracial daughter.



It looks like my family, sort of. The daughter in the commercial is beautiful, and looks more like her dad. The daughter in my family is beautiful, and looks more like me. She has more of my genes than her dad's, but she is most definitely biracial.



And it… Continue

Thanks for the friendship, Joan! So glad your daughter is safe and out of harm's way. Hope recovery there on the coast is swift and peaceful for one and all concerned!

Oh, that is funny. My sons will have a field day...if they'd been around I'd not be asking so publicly  : )  

Thanks, Joan!

Ha! I found both messages on my email, but only can find one of them on here -- and I keep hearing chiming...?

Eek. I feel a bit retarded. Signing out  : )

Hi Joan,

how does it feel being here?It's different,I find.I am used to this type from FB.

Zoomers.ca is similar.

Some changes are necessary,though.
