11/11 (on time)


Listening to bluebird by Paul McCartney on my way to pick up new prescription glasses…and as I was driving I saw some branches in the road that I had to slightly dodge.

it took me back to a place and time in my life where my ex girlfriend I drove across the country from Atlanta, to Oakland. I don’t recall exactly which southern state we were in…I really wanna say Texas…& I’m talking like…the “ain’t shit in this town” part.

We were driving for a couple hours and out of nowhere comes these huge fucking tumbleweeds into the middle of the desolate street: I’m talking like 5-6 of these huge ass mf’s…& I had to do some stunt double ass maneuver to dodge one of those things flying toward us. Shit. What a time.

Oh. By the way, that trip was supposed to be a solo trip. My best friend was deployed overseas & couldn’t get back in time. I had a deadline to make to get to Cali for my job. After learning that I was gonna drive by myself, my ex refused to let me drive alone. Now, keep in mind, she did not have a license, so I literally would’ve still been me driving by myself anyway 🤷🏾‍♂️ lol. However, she wanted to make sure I had somebody there, present with me to make sure that I was present on that long ass drive.

& as I remember this life, I can’t help but to be hella grateful. Wanna know why? Here’s one of reasons:

The fact that I had somebody in my life that, even though our relationship was completely dissolved, gave af enough, cared that much to say, “I’m going with you.”

Grateful. To atttact & align, share time and space with (& hella lessons-because growth) such incredible people. They remind me of pure, no strings attached love. Loving for the sake of loving and never needing a reason to be a kind, loving & compassionate human being.

I keep being led to this quote:

Tis better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all.


It’s all fucking true. The love I’ve received in my life…continue to receive…what a gift. A blessing in so many forms.

Hella grateful for every chapter of love that I shared an experienced. Thank you to all the beautiful, messy, loving, authentically human…beings.

Free Love
