Long time to post.
I would apologize for my absence but… I am damn near 40 (as in next week). Life happens… and life happened.
Short story shorter, I am at a stage in life where a lot of things I thought were non-negotiable… were negotiated. People I thought I would know the rest of my life… I won’t. And there a myriad of other life lessons I got the hard way.
But yes I am still around, still black and still gay. I am just in a new tax bracket, a new dress size, and with a whole new list of grown folks issues. So I said hell… why don’t I blog about it. It will keep me honest… even when I lie (mostly to myself).
And so The Kword becomes… Hello40s.
Oh and feel free to read all the irrerevent stuff I wrote back in my 20s… on here. I was a whole freaking wave.
And heck no I am not going to update/change all my old things to say Hello40s because…. a) I wasn’t 40 then, and b) my 40th self now doesn’t have the bandwidth or desire for that much needless work. *peaceful sigh*

Welcome to the fabulous 40’s, it’s so much to live and learn on this side. Happy to have you back you were missed!!!
Awww thanks! I am excited about seeing if I still got it in me. crossing fingers
Welcome, welcome, welcome.
It’s been a trip, so far.
But I believe the best is yet to come.
That’s that the folks keep telling me. My 30s was a trip, so I need my 40s to be the nice landing.
