Who is Cool C(h)rys


Welcome to the CCC. If you’ve stumbled across this blog…its because you’re a creature of the curious variety. Get comfortable. take a look around. You’ll find some pretty cool, although random readings. And if you find that the CCC is NOT what you’re looking for…there are plenty of links to other interesting sites and blogs on the blogroll.

That said, let me take a deep breath. I’ma twenty-somethin’ Afi-Merican wombyn who long ago mastered the art of “faking it”. I’m not talking about sex (get your filthy minds out of the gutter)…I just mean in my every day walk…or run, if you will. I learned how to say the right thing at the right time. Stand and strut the right way to get the right person to notice. Problem is…now…I’m trapped in the realm of make-believe and mediocrity. I’m like that kid in high school who bloomed late, spead too thin and then peaked early. And now I’m just trying to find my way back to the real and true.

Attempting to differientiate MY goals, dreams and aspirations from those of my friends and co-horts.

Struggling to regain faith in what I’M good at and what I was born to do. 

Perfect MY craft,

see MY vision.

 Wanting to become the wombyn I KNOW that I can be.

So walk with me. Struggle with me. Like what I write or don’t. It’ll be random. Some days it will read like my personal journal, others like an article in the Village Voice.  Mostly, it will be rambling and eventually I hope to find my way back to the eccentric, honest, focused, genuine, “just something about her” girl that I used to be…only all grown up.

    Black women are the most beautiful creatures on the Planet. Thank you so much for being the mothers of civilization. We owe all to you.

    Your blog is insightful and I don’t know what I would do without it.
