Seriously, though. 28 years seems like a lifetime to me, in fact it is practically my lifetime minus a year.
It may seem like an obvious statement but there’s something to be said about a committed relationship especially with the way things are going for my generation. It’s become harder & harder to connect, to find & to achieve meaningful & loyal partnerships, and to sustain a solid relationship for a number of years. I blame social media but I also place the blame on ourselves and on our lack of ambition & interest in trying to beat the current odds, which seem to side on casual over formal. But this is a separate conversation I’ll save for another time.
Made it a much-needed date night with Diana. And yes, her headband would light up at a press of a button.
Eminem never fails as a performer. His passion to entertain is tangible & his energy is electrifying.
I was also pleasantly surprised by Rihanna: great live performer (her singing is on point) and her vibe was “dope”…no frills, no excess, just her soulful and down-to-earth interpretation of the usually sensationalized Princess Ri-Ri brand.
It’s beautiful, indeed.

Detroit, as strong as it is, has its arms wide open and is calling on its citizens for help, care and awareness.
Detroit is happenin’ people. It’s real.
