|Deeone Higgs = AWESOMENESS !!!!|
Technically, the ALL MY DONUTS stories are about the odd and interesting people I meet in Cleveland while I'm out seeking FREE WiFi (or as one guy said, FREE WeeFee). Deeone is different. He has transcended the geographical range of my original concept - an Internet soap opera with no plot.
Deeone brings a rich plot to the periphery of the donut. He has a story to tell. He is a gifted writer, which makes grasping his story even easier. I hate when someone has a story and then can't write a freakin' sentence or use paragraphs. Don't you just love 9,000 words of solid text?
Mr. Higgs is a full-time blogger. He's from Atlanta, GA. And he's about as connected as I am on the Internet. Every time I turned around, there was Deeone on Google+, then LinkedIN, Facebook, Twitter, Klout - who is this guy? But his signature word kept popping up along with his face - AWESOMENESS !!!!! And after getting to know my new shirt with the Higgs label on it, I began to agree - Deeone is AWESOMENESS!!!!
In fact, Deeone has so much AWESOMENESS, I've done something I almost never do, I added him to my blog roll at the bottom of this site. His blog is Releasing Me Today (a link will be provided below). It offers a very powerful message about releasing the anger in your life, releasing the bad people, releasing the things you feel you must hold on to, but they are the things that are holding you back. He smiles every day. I wanted to learn how to do that.
Deeone is not just a guy hopped up on happy pills from the south. He's a person who has suffered great tragedy in his life. Loss. Disappointment. Ridicule. Pain. So, when he writes, he writes from his personal experiences and his heart. He has a plot to his blog and it unfolds every day. I felt his voice was a great addition to the voices that are already there at the bottom of this blog.
The other sites I have on my blog roll are Maniacal Mom's Moments - my friend in Calgary who is a single mother trying to survive and keep her world together. She's blunt, frank and honest. And she cracks me up.
I have a doctor, Michael Kirsch M.D. who I met at Dunkin' Donuts. He writes MD Whistleblower - a site that exposes the murky side of medicine. His writings will tell you the truth of what is going on in the medical industry.
Lessons Of A Dad is by my first blog student. He's a father in the Philippines. He has a lot to offer and worth reading.
Now, I have Deeone on that list. He is black, so he has a perspective that none of my other blog roll friends can offer. He's also gay and living a life that is completely OUT. He's been in a monogamous relationship for four and half years. But it has not all been easy for him. And please don't think his site is "gay" site. It's really about living. About living well. About living free of burdens.
Blogging is about creating and crafting a voice and finding an audience for that voice. Sometimes, my voice sounds like I just took a soccer ball to the family jewels - or as they say today, "I got my junk skunked." I feel it is important to offer you options when you've had enough of my madness.
We live in a diverse world. All of us are doing the best we can. However, as bloggers we try to tell you, "You're not alone. We are struggling too, but here's what I've found that works. Here's what helped a friend of mine. Or don't let the burdens of the day bring you down, watch one of my insane movies for five minutes."
We can't all offer the same encouragement and inspiration because we come from so many different directions. But, I'm trying to offer some viewpoints on this site - a mom, a dad, a doctor and a man full of AWESOMENESS !!!!
I hope you take the time to click on the link to Deeone's site - Releasing Me Today - and really meet Deeone Higgs. He's an ALL MY DONUTS story and he's full of AWESOMENESS !!!!
