Ezinne. I try to read everything you write when I come back on Medium for my fix, lol. Ya know, I love your writing style and in particular I enjoy how damn honest you are. You don’t pretend to be living your #bestlife at every minute of the day. It’s such a relief. As a reader I need to hear that from other writers. I loved reading your previous…
Melissa this is good and funny 😄 You have some zingers in there and also touched on a lot of the reasons people drop out of organized religion. One other thing … spiritual work is still work.

Yes! When I heard the news yesterday it took my breath away, although I had no idea why. I didn’t even watch 90210, but of course the cast were ubiquitous. I mourn with you and my fellow Gen-Xers at his loss, and ours. Beautifully written as always Ezinne ❤

How much worse is it gonna get … that is indeed the million dollar question. I love your direct, no nonsense style. You tell it like it is. I might just start calling this country ’Soviet America’.
I’ve thought of writing about this topic too! I love the way you approach it and the last line is profound and lovely, “ And then I slowly open my hand, and like petals in the wind, I let them drift away.”
The saying, “youth is wasted on the young” annoyed me when I was young. Now I get it and I wish we could’ve been…
Hey, I love this piece. My teeth are also crooked so it spoke to me. That whole section I highlighted that begins, “like any story we all have set-ups and payoffs” is beautiful and profound. I will look for your book in airports ;)
