Note: This was something I wrote when I first began blogging earlier this year. I wrote it about someone that I work with. He continually amazes me and makes me smile with his determination and positivity.
I saw into his world.
His story told with permanent ink on his skin.
A beautiful man, full of life, you can see it in his eyes.
He lives admidst the violence that has affected him so deeply
in his young life.
He has lost His father. His sister . His neice . His Friend .
Only one taken Home by age.
Names, Crosses and Signs of faith
in his skin,
laced with Black ink.
He still believes.
Each day he works,
to make His life better.
His life with His Wife,
and His Child.
His Faith Works.
His light continues...

I’m a bitch I’m a lover I’m a child I’m a mother I’m a sinner I’m a sant I do not feel ashamed I’m your hell I’m your dream I’m nothin’ in between You know, you wouldn’t want it any other way
no, Really, I am
I grew up in the suburbs of pittsburgh and now, again, this is where i am at now.
I have lived here and abroad and my dream location would be probably north caroline.
i need all seasons to feel right with the world.
My fav places the mountains and the ocean.
I love snow. I love sand. I love the sun warming my skin. I love my family the most and that includes furbabies.
I have a major obsession with vintage costume jewelry. I am now in the process of cataloging what I have by blogging about a piece a day. This obsession is beyond control actually.
I love to thrift shop. It is the thrill of the hunt. I do not like mainstream shopping at all. The only stores I frequent are Sams and Shop N Save (I do not purchase thrifted food, although I do look for reduced items there too)
