I started this blog back in 2005.
I was living in NYC, working as a paralegal, trying to make sense of things.
The title, have mastered the art of ..., comes from the first line of a bad poem I wrote while riding the train to work one morning in '05.
A lot has happened since then. These posts capture moments. It is here you will find old and new ideas that haunt me, souls that inspire me, music that I like to boogie to.
You will also find several pictures of sneakers. I luv em. There's no deep, artistic reasoning behind it. I just like a clean pair of kicks.
I write plays. Most of them are about Black folks. All of them celebrate the power and magic of telling a story on stage. I enjoy playing with language. Every play reflects life's possibilities, realities, tragedies and miracles.
I write other stuff, too. But we don't need to bother with that just yet.
Enjoy your time here. Feel free to visit often.
