Hello! And welcome to my WordPress site! I am Josh, a young Black writer with a voice that needs to be spoken and many stories waiting to be told.
This is my personal blog posting site that I try to focus on. I do work outside, in a of partnership collaboration called “Feeling Drives Work.”
My main purpose for writing is to record events. Too many stories go untold because their is no “proof” of it, so here’s the proof. Here’s a record of all of the emotions and experiences that people have. I want my words to help shape the world, and if it’s one person at a time, that’s good change in my opinon.
Click on here to go to “My Posts” page and see all of the post from most recent to the latest.
Underneath this message is a brief list of my latest posts. The one on top is the most recent one, and the one on the bottom is the oldest of the 5 posts. It’s an easier way to get to my posts.
I hope you find these readings well and expect more!

The … Continue reading A Love Letter
Amanda, you were right. When faced with adversity or an awesome presence, I talk big talk, but shrink and hurt myself for not being enough. I’m challenging habits that I spent 10 years making and fixing them to work out my school schedule. People always called me the “golden boy,” the “one who will do … Continue reading Facing Adversity
They say a photo speaks a thousand words. That, depending on the skill and commitment of the person, is true. Truthfully, my philosophy on photos are a reflection of what we see and what we know. Our experiences, however jumbled and dislocated, are somehow awkwardly articulated into a thought to derive meaning from a still … Continue reading A Moment in Time
