Happy December 1st everyone! Join with me as I am reminded that today is World AIDS day. A day set aside to remember those who have lost the battle to AIDS. A day set aside to support and show compassion to those who are living with HIV. A day set aside to remind us all to continue on in the fight to end HIV forever. A day set aside to raise awareness in the hopes of ending fear and stigma, still so ever present, and, prevents so many from being tested, from wanting to know their status. I could go on and on, but we can no longer live in silence while screaming for a cure. We are the cure. It’s not a brilliant idea, as one recently suggested to a post I had written. It can be a reality. But, it’s a reality we must actively pursue. Love yourself, and much love to you all. HB
Hello, I'm Herschel. And, I'll be the first to say, that I am not a writer. Although, there was a day, long ago, that I considered writing as a career. Yet, life took me in a totally different direction. Today, I find myself just putting my thoughts down, simply with pen and paper. I'm a little old-fashioned maybe, in that sort of way. I simply find myself writing about whats real, and relevant to me, based off what life has given me. If what I write touches you, then my heart is truly at ease. For what it tells me, lets me know, that we are truly in this thing called "Life" together. And so, I thank each of you for taking the time to stop by, for liking my writings, and giving me the honor, that you would somehow follow me. And, so, I'm not a writer, a poet, or even perhaps a great blogger. All I can simply say, is that I write from a heart that's real, a place that somewhere along the way, I forgot existed.
