“The Midas Touch” Guest Writer: R. L. Norman         We were standing six feet apart from each other. Because of the coronavirus, it was the ritual.   We’ve been dealing with this virus for the last seven months, and social distancing has become a part of life. So, here we stand. We’d just finished having lunch and walked to my car, which [...]

“Pardon Me” Guest Writer: R. L. Norman       As I sit here, I swear I can feel the walls closing in on me. I don’t know how much more I can take of this “quarantine thing.”  But they say, “It’s for my own good.”  I’m not so sure about that:  I’d rather be with my family and friends during this time.  I [...]

“Jump!” Guest Writer: R. L. Norman             I was frozen with shock. I couldn’t move. My mind was racing with so many thoughts.      “I can’t believe he did that. I can’t believe we did that. Right here in the alley between two buildings. Anyone could have walked upon us.”      At twelve years old, I thought about [...]

     “You have to believe in yourself in order to succeed.  If you don't, no one else will.”       Sounds simple, eh?        Then, why is it that too many of us find it so difficult to do?      That’s the mantra of Mr. R. L. Norman, arguably the quintessential Renaissance man.  Mr. Norman is an African American entrepreneur, videographer, performer, columnist, internet host and author [...]

“Are You Wearing a Mask?” Guest Writer: R. L. Norman          We ran down the dirt road to the little store to buy candy. It was me, my little brother and my cousin. My grandfather had given us each a dollar. He made us promise not to tell my grandmother because she would have said it would spoil our dinner.    [...]

“Love Is Not Always Blind” Guest Writer: R. L. Norman          I stood at the door to the apartment, preparing myself for the mystery that was in store for me.        “Behind this door might be my perfect soulmate,” I thought.      I checked my clothes, my breath, my hair—everything.  I had to make sure that I was totally “on point.”      My hopes soaring, I got up the [...]

“Four Simple Words of Comfort” Guest Writer: R. L. Norman       It was so dark in the room that I couldn’t see my hand in front of my face. It was so dark that I could probably hear a pin drop; that’s if a pin did drop. I know that if I were a kid, I would probably be scared, calling for [...]

“The Power of Prayer” Guest Writer: R. L. Norman   I pray that the doctors find out what illness my friend has, and cures him. I pray that my cousin graduates high school, continues on to college, and stops hanging with the wrong crowd--before he ends up in jail. I pray that my fifth novel, "Honey Hush, Don't Ask and I Won't Tell" (the [...]

“Hands Down, Hands Up”  Guest Writer:  R. L. Norman        As I sat in the back of the car waiting, I was blinded by all the flashing lights. Vehicles were slowing down as they passed by, with the drivers trying to get a glimpse of what was happening. With all the people who were trying to get a look at me, you [...]

“The Master Plan”  Guest Writer:  R. L. Norman        I was standing on the side of the stage out of the line of sight from the audience. From my vantage point, I could only see a few people in the front rows. I had no idea how many people showed up for this event--my debut.      You see, this was my very [...]
