Chaka Khan Concert

Every now and then, I venture south of the city. Yesterday I went for the 14th Annual African Festival of Arts @ Washington Park (51st & Cottage Grove). In that it was raining and I’d never been to Washington Park, I almost didn’t go. But then, I reminded myself that there were going to be more than 200 artists “displaying crafts, fabric, jewelry, masks and more for the annual celebration of African culture.” Plus Chaka Khan was going to be performing.

My Biological Clock

I’ve said this many times before and I’ll say it again, if someone had told me that I would be unmarried without any children at 33, I’d call them a liar. Heck, my mother had 3 children at my age and I’m feeling a little pressure, as both my sisters are already mothers. Ok, sure the pressure is self-imposed, but the fact that my ability to get pregnant has decreased since I’m over 30 worries me to […]
