This bee-yoo-ti-full shoe would only serve to physically put me where I feel I’ve been hangin’ out lately: on top of the world.
The Game is hatching out of its “repeat” status and returning to television; I got 10 new pairs of socks (none of them white); someone cares enough to make me smile; & I saved 15% by switching to Geico.
Well, the last part’s a lie…I don’t believe in Geico.
Seriously…tis the time of year where my spirits take a deep sea dive. While others revel in the front yard scenes of the birth of Baby Jesus, the opportunity to buy & wear fresh azz boots, I’m just trying to find enough sunlight to give energy to at least a low level smile. Seasonal Affective Disorder is the culprit. Right about now, the chill in the air & the decreased exposure to the sun’s energizing rays has typically made for a funky attitude & a desire to spend the next 4 months in a heated cave. The surprise: it ain’t dim round about my spirits yet. I’m hoping to keep it that way.

My 3rd eye, not the 1 on my left big toe, has been very active, visionatin’ the future. I won’t ruin it all by putting it all out here…though it may be cool to track back & see how I predicted the future with frightening accuracy. I’ll keep it a surprise for myself, watching it unfold like a dinner napkin.
There used to be a fish spot out here on The Ave called Pile Em Up. It closed down, as colo’d folk establishments tend to & was reopened--I assume under the same management--with the name Stack Em High. They mean the same damn thing; & serve as advice for what I’m about to be doing over the next few months. I’m going to continue to pile up the good times & stack laughter & joy as high as possible. & when it all falls over like a hoarder’s mess on my head, I’ll be surrounded by goodness.
& as nice as all that sounds, true joy would be actually being able to wear these shoes. Ahhh well…the knees & back have other plans. Perhaps you can have them; but you’ll have to search. My jealousy prevents me from providing the link to them. Happy hunting.
Watch me move.
