At Newark City Hall for The Raising of The Flag!!!

I HAVEN’T BEEN ABLE TO FIND SOMEONE WHO CAN KEEP UP WITH ME: I’m starting a blog today, counting down the last 50 days before I turn 50. I’m going to post something daily that speaks to the things I’ve longed to say and finally found the words.

When people have asked WHY ARE YOU SINGLE, I have pondered and paused and stumbled, like many. But I read an interview with TRUE BLOOD star #JoeManganiello who was the #1 Sexiest Bachelor in a recent #PeopleMag and that was his answer: He hadn’t found someone to keep up with him. He wasn’t being cocky. He actually waxed poetic about being a romantic who wants someone who makes his feel like he’s flying when they kiss. But the truth of why this stopped me was become THE TRUTH of my singledom and my being single is that I don’t want a love that makes me feel like I can breathe or slow down or settle down or for or in. I want a love that inspires me daily, engages me powerfully and ignites me consistently. Love and partnership, for me, are about finding that someone who wants to read the manuscript or who takes notes during a sermon or asks my opinion about something they are working on with the same vigor that I do. I want someone who gets up on purpose, daily, and until then I will keep moving and keep it moving, praying that The One will catch up with or bump into me as we both move, like and have our being as The Best Me.

@bbasstheillest, trust me, it’s a powerful thing to hear and feel, so thank you. Love is not a trivial thing so thanks for #LovingOnMe. #KingsOfAFeather

#CalmDown: It may seem hard in the moment, even impossible, but you must learn to not let every push of your button be your detonator. Walking in peace means learning to work on it, person by person, day by day. It’s a struggle indeed because things get to humans, but in the words of the great Q-Tip, learn to breathe and stop…for real…then give it what you got…because what you’ve got is more than a moment or a misappropriation of emotion.
Now, breathe, and govern your accordingly. Good evening!
