Flicker

By C.V. Harris, published on Feb 14, 2008

As I reluctantly stood atop the twenty steps I had to descend daily in order to catch thetrain that would bring me to my daily grind, I attempted to put one foot in front of the other and suddenly...... I tripped! In the few agonizing minutes it took me to regain my composure and my footing, I realized, had I fallen, I probably would have plunged head first onto the hard linoleum flooring that awaited me at the bottom of the staircase. More importantly, I would have most assuredly suffered serious injuries, or worse, death. (As a result of my misstep, I sustained a bruised big toe that ached... (more)

Nucleus

By C.V. Harris, published on Jan 8, 2008

I have a friend of mine whom I’ve know for several years. I’ll call him Jack. Jack in my opinion, was physically the essence of health. Although I’ve never witnessed him working out, visually he appeared to.......well….look...... healthy. But what does healthy look like? Does healthy have a particular appearance? Maybe it does. Pfft. Who knows?

Jack is about five-feet ten, weighing in at approximately 150-160 lbs. He owns his own floor refinishing business and makes a pretty good living, might I add. Oh one more thing. Jack lives alone with his four very active... (more)

Big

By C.V. Harris, published on Dec 29, 2007

Why is it that so many of us have achievable dreams and aspirations for our future yet we fail to take the necessary steps in order to make those imaginings our reality? Are you one of those people? What about the ever-popular New Year’s Resolution? Ever resolve to quit smoking and soon after you find yourself still puffing away long after that particular New Year’s has come and gone? Afterward you bask in feelings of disappointment and hopelessness because when you made that resolution you really thought you could adhere to it. After all, you meant to quit wholeheartedly when you said you... (more)

The Road Less Traveled

By C.V. Harris, published on Dec 27, 2007

Can someone please tell me why it is that men who have nothing substantial to offer continually approach women who do? Do you have anything of benefit to bring to her table? Do these woman wear signs on their foreheads that read: WANTED. UNEMPLOYED MAN WITH NO MOTIVATION, NO GOALS OR ASPIRATIONS. GROUNDED EMPLOYED, SUCCESSFUL R-E-S-P-O-N-S-I-B-L-E MEN NEED NOT APPLY? I have often asked myself this question. And to be quite honest, I had no intentions of writing a story with the type of content that you are about to read. My intentions were TOTALLY divergent. Before I write about anything, I... (more)

Fake

By C.V. Harris, published on Dec 26, 2007

I want to be in love. Period. I want a man to love me deeply, intensely. I want this man to be as much in love with me as I am with him. Hell, who'm I kidding? I want him to be more in love with me than I am with him. Is that lopsided and so wrong? I know that sounds cliché being a woman and all, but today? Right now? Having that special person in love with me? Is where I wanna be. I mean really in love with me. Being in love with me to the point of my guy not even wanting to make love to another woman, only wanting to share himself with ............solely me. I want to have that great relationship... (more)

Disclosure

By C.V. Harris, published on Dec 21, 2007

Is there something wrong with being FEMALE, ATTRACTIVE, and SINGLE in today's society? As of late, I am beginning to feel as though being "appealing to the eye", or most recently referred to as "EYE CANDY" (to me, it’s an unfortunate that this is how I am frequently referred to lately), is quickly becoming my downfall. The unmitigated nerve of the men today to view a single woman who just happens to be engaging AND unattached as having something WRONG with her because she is not in a relationship is preposterous! Is it HER fault that there are more single available men in the world who happen... (more)

Damaged

By C.V. Harris, published on Dec 20, 2007

If you don’t have about fifteen minutes to spare, then don't attempt to read the following narrative. However, if you do, please sit back and read on. Maybe, just maybe, you'll learn something. Understand: This is dedicated to all the men and women everywhere who naively believe a person has to "Do" something to their abuser that encourages being struck by them. Humpf. On the J-O-B. That’s where I met him. Quentin Cole was his name. Everyone called him Q for short. Q was an extremely attractive man. He was 6’2”, had the waviest-curliest-jet-black hair that you ever saw. This man... (more)

Assault by the Seed

By C.V. Harris, published on Dec 18, 2007

Dedicated to parent(s) everywhere who have been at the receiving end of being hit by their child. I guess it’s safe for me to assume that since I have a blog, have written a book, been on the radio and give advice on my ASK C.V. column, that I can be considered a point-of-reference in the eyes of some. Although I am grateful for the blessings that I have received, one must remember that I am a single parent just as many of you are. I flail around to get answers at parenting and relationships as well as seeking sound solutions regarding everyday situations that my life presents just as I’m... (more)

Promise

By C.V. Harris, published on Dec 15, 2007

How many of us are aware that we need to make important or even life saving changes about our person or within our lives? Yet we wait until the eve of New Years to convince ourselves that NOW is the time to put in the work to secure that change. Case in point: You KNOW you need to quit smoking, so what do you do? You take out that new pack of Vice Roys and hurl em into the trash. However, as soon as that urge hits you, you know the one. That overpowering desire to ......SMOKE. A craving so enormous, that it encourages you to bolt into the kitchen, dig into that garbage can and retrieve that pack... (more)

Bankrupt

By C.V. Harris, published on Dec 12, 2007

It's amazing how people walk around today "appearing" normal on the outside yet, on the inside they are a sack of emotional dysfunction disturbingly screwed up and withered. What's worse, they don't even realize how jacked up they really are! By my own admission, I know I have emotional homework to do. I not only have pop quizzes, I also have lengthy exams to finish and a Thesis that was due yesteryear!! A friend I've know for years once remarked to me "I wouldn't tell some of my friends to read what you write because I'd be too embarrassed. You don't practice what you write"!! Yikes! I didn’t... (more)
