I'm a 16-year writer/editor (half spent with mainstream newspapers before I tapped out on "unbiased" journalism). Check out my six Medium publications: BlackTechLogy, Doggone World, Homegrown, I Do See Color, Tickled and We Need to Talk. On a personal note, I hate aerobics but love dance fitness (Kukuwa Fitness the most). However, I adopted a Hound mix on Juneteenth 2021 after being a two-year dog walker, and I'm too sleepy from morning walks to dance anymore. I'll get back to it someday. Lastly, every time I talk to my old Girl Scout leader, she offers me $1K to go to law school. Why? There's a little lawyer who has set up shop inside my head and an activist who rents office space, even when I really just want to walk my dog, dance and enjoy a vegetarian meal. Anything else?
