No matter how hard I try to not talk about myself, sometimes other people force my hand. So here we go again. During the Valentine’s Day weekend of 2016, my apartment at 537 W 147th St Apt 1 was flooded. My  apartment was and is managed by Aizer Realty,…

"It’s been little over a week since the presidential election. I feel like I’ve aged five years.

"Some of you may already know that my father passed away last night after a year-long battle with ALS.

Some of you may also know that I received the news from Facebook, or rather, from a Facebook post publicized by his pastor within hours of his demise, who I’m sure was given permission to share the news by my father’s wife, Miriam."

Hello, Since about 2005, aptseven.blogspot.com was home to scraps of my work. It was a 'portfolio' in that I could copy and paste work here that I didn't want to lose during the fall of the floppy disk and the quick rise and fall of the zip drive. I took it...

Cherchez La Femme
I've
been participating in some writer challenges lately. Last year I joined the  NYC Midnight Flash Fiction Challenge  and
joined again this year. This is my first round submission. It's highly
competitive, but  I

My father died last week, and after I got the news, I coped how I know best. I wrote about it, and the ensuing outpour of support was much more than I expected.

In my last post, I posed some questions that are key for self-actualization. They are: Are you doing the right thing? Are you a good person? Are you making the right decisions? AND: Are you making a positive impact for the world around you? But I forgot the most important question of them all, and I want to talk about it more about it today.

Anastasiia: Marco's Assignment
She had not been an easy assignment. A party girl in her own right, she was the reason for Marco's sleepless nights. For the first few weeks she'd barely noticed him at all, but one mistake and her attention honed into him like a torpedo. He thought about t...
