Out of Omaha and on to the big screen

Growing up in Omaha Nebraska has never been the picnic in the park, easy going “Good Life” that’s written on the sign.

That life is for some,but not for all. Hidden behind the scenes of our city is a quiet rule of thumb pictured in the documentary Out of Omaha.

The movie follows twin Trotter brothers around for a span of eight years. Showing the ups and downs of life due to racial and economic crisis for people of color.

The director,writers,actors,and producers put together a vision of what it takes to move ahead of life when the odds are stacked against you.

Out of Omaha will be available March 6 and 9th at the Aksarben Cinema.

Hope you all can check it out.

Running 

Woke up late. Well later in the day than normal, but that’s because I was up all night wrestling with the ideas of what to do next.

I’m running out of time here at my ex’s aunty house. She’s ready for us to move on and we’re ready to go also. I’m appreciative of the hospitality and happy my daughter is on her last leg of her classes.  

My plan was to let her finish up her externship staying with the ex and me and the boys leave town.

Well lo and behold the price of the greyhound tickets keep going up and I’m on a limited budget with absolutely no time.

I heard a voice in my head telling me the other option I have. And yes I mean the 1 other option. I’m puzzled and sad. I’m sure that complaining about this and that isn’t going to help me in this moment. Once again I’m stuck between a rock and a hard place. 

2017 has been a very humbling year. 

I’m more determined to become the writing goddess I want to be. I just wasn’t expecting to still be in California while I did it.😕
