nail polish, black-eyed peas, and cheap wine

  • i am not superstitious and stuff but i will toast at midnight with cheap sparkling wine and give my honey a kiss…
  • i tightened my locs and polished my fingers and toes because these things make me feel sexy…a feeling that i hope lingers throughout the year…
  • i washed all my clothes on thursday because at some point someone’s big ma told me it was bad luck to do laundry on the friday before and after the new year…
  • i will make a small pot of greens and black-eyed peas tomorrow because well…when mama was in the world she told me this had to be done..and i’ve been doing it ever since…
  • i am not superstitious and stuff but i wonder what the ball dropping without second seed will mean for familial ties in 2012…

on resolutions…

i made promises that i left in 2009 and again in 2010..unfulfilled…there will be no promises made tonight that linger into a million tomorrows…i have tried to get free all while living some semblance of the american dream…this i tell you is a feat that can never be accomplished. yes i am tired. i have planned to—live cleaner, listen harder, love stronger, and forgive louder…i have failed at them all-yet they remain desirous, mysterious and seemingly unattainable…i have no plans of grandiose monstrosity to usher in what some may consider a new year…no promises…i just want to live comfortably…somewhere outside of my head…
