I love conversations, especially those about my books…
Preparing for lunch, I saw one of the young biologists in my office in the restroom,
She is thirty, a bit shy and white…no that doesn’t matter usually, but, stay with me…
She asked me if she could come and talk to me,
We do that periodically, about many things,
And it had been a while, so I told her I was eating at my desk today, so come on down…
She walked in and closed the door…I inwardly groaned, thinking this was going to be a budgeting or personnel issue…all of a sudden my spinach and chicken didn’t look as inviting, I wanted a cheeseburger…anyway…she grinned, saying, ‘I loved SCHAE’S STORY…all of a sudden my appetite was back…
We chatted vigorously for about twenty minutes, laughing and giggling, then she sobered up, thanking me…
She thanked me for telling her about my books and allowing her to learn about my culture, something she admitted she would not have done had it not been me…but, here is the beauty…she told me that now she read other AA authors…YAY…
I thanked her and then told her what a time we as black authors have getting other races to read our work…a light dawned in her eyes, realizing how much she had revealed and how much it all meant…I smiled telling her that, ‘we don’t know, until we know, now she needed to go out and tell others…’
She promised me she would,
And I believe her,
And not just because the next time it might be a budget or personnel issue!




We are now at a time when the word change is very necessary,
People are losing jobs, homes…money is tight,
And for those of us who are blessed enough to still be employed,
It is amazing how much we can save by making small changes…
For years, I stopped by Starbucks every day, to the tune of about thirty dollars a week,
Didn’t seem like much,
Most days I ate lunch from a nearby restaurant,
Usually ten dollars a day,
Okay we are already at eighty dollars a week,
And I would purchase a magazine or two a week, another ten dollars,
Which translates to over 4500.00 a year…
Wow think of that invested or heck, think of how many food banks or charities,
One can support with eighty dollars a week!
That is grocery money for some families,
And believe you me, we had all better start doing just a little bit for others,
Because one never knows when they will be on the receiving end…
And these kind of changes are really painless,
Because the coffee I make is pretty tasty,
And my own spinach and chicken breast is good,
And healthier,
And a one time subscription to those magazines,
Is usually about the cost of two magazines,
See how easy it is…
And there is still a little money for books…
Speaking of books…
