Impossible is Impossible

This blog is my way of reflecting upon life. Life is about living and learning. As I live and learn I’m going to reflect upon this life I lead. Hopefully I'll offer something insightful with my postings. If you learn nothing else from me, know this that “impossible is impossible”.

I Love...

So, D Sands posted on Ten95 a bit about his love affair with books. It's a common thread which I think binds many of us budding intellectuals, we love books! I didn't have to go far to see evidence of this in my own life.

These are books I've cracked open that I should probably finish:
Black Journalists: The NABJ Story by Wayne Dawkins
A history of the NABJ.
Eats, Shoots, and Leaves by Lynne Truss
A guide to punctuation.
The Covenant with Black America by Tavis Smiley
Highlighting some of the problems in the Black community.

These are books I own, in my dorm room, that only the Lord knows when I'll begin them:
