Many of us propel through life on the promise of completion.

Ah, the perfection in being smooth, well-rounded.

Fragmented and jagged; a shard; a sliver, we pray that people and circumstances will come our way to make us greater than we can be on our own.  Whole with a capital “O.”

Leave it to the man who made you giggle as a grade schooler to show you how to get the “Big O” in life.


ShaMecha Simms…is having a staring contest with you, right, now.

She wins.
