Yesterday I left my house in the late morning to buy a new pair of sneakers. It did not take long to accomplish that, but it was so beautiful outside that I stayed out for most of the day. It was an absolutely gloriously gorgeous day! At around 4:00pm I headed to a new restaurant to Troy to get dinner. I did not feel like cooking, soContinue Reading
I received an overwhelming response to the blog post Black Victoriana, so I decided to post more photos of African Americans from way back when.

And then, one evening when they’re driving home, a thought occurs to Martha, and, without really thinking, she says it aloud: “Do you realize that, as of tonight, we’ve been seeing each other for exactly six months?”
And then, there is silence in the car.Continue Reading
