About me

Gender MALE
Location Midwest, United States
Introduction Profiles are like plastic screens with a little dust on them - and that's me sitting on the plane. I could tell you about the music I like. I can tell you about the books I've read. But would that really tell you about me - the man and his life? I could tell you what I love to eat, or what I desire in a friend, yet that wouldn't tell you about me. However, some have said I've lived many lives in my short lifetime. To a degree that's true. See what I mean in the "Favorite Movies" section (in my complete profile).
Favorite Movies Okay, I hijacked this portion of my favorite movies to continue my profile and here it goes, I served 4 years in the US Air force, I've been locked up and thus touched the cold steel of bars surrounding me, I've drank wine in the jungles of Thailand and tapped my feet at the Apolo Theater, I've had 3 great love affairs, and I am now a widowed black man in America, I've been a little league baseball coach and I am presently a guest columnist for a local newspaper, I've been robbed in Dayton Ohio and ripped off in Minneapolis Minn, I love music and recently returned from the Essence Music Festival in New Orleans, I've dangled my feet from the balcony of a theater at the Teluride Film Festival, and in the waters of the Atlantic and Pacific oceans, I've literally held 7ooo volts in my hands, and I've held the hands of my 3 children, I love to laugh and love to eat soul food, My great uncle is the late and great Kingfish from the old Amos & Andy TV series, There's more, and hopefully you'll read the rest if you decide to enter my blog. There's pain and struggle, love and hope in my posts. It's who I am, It's my profile! I go deeper in my comments, I hope you enjoyed your visit and do come back, Btw, I can get a little silly, so be forewarned.
