A Few Thoughts on What is Going on in Cleveland

by Jennifer Black

A FEW THOUGHTS ON HEALTH:

      Because of my health issues, I’ve had to call off from work a lot more than I’ve liked.  I haven’t been feeling well lately, I’ve been passing out a lot at home and at work. I think it may be because of my emphysema, which is always worse for me in warmer weather. Other than that, I’ve had a couple of CAT scans and things are looking well.

A FEW THOUGHTS ON FAMILY:

      I miss my kids. I haven’t seen my son in almost a year, I haven’t seen my daughter in a year, and I haven’t seen my grandson in about five months.  I hope that I’ll be able to spend some time with them around Thanksgiving.

A FEW THOUGHTS ON WORK:

      I’m glad that the Market is making the parking lot bigger, because more parking means more people to meet and more people to sell the paper to.  I love that the Market is open on Sundays—it’s one of my favorite days to work. There are more people to meet, and it gives me a chance to get out on Sundays.

A FEW THOUGHTS ON CLEVELAND SPORTS:

      I’m glad that the Cavaliers won the championship. Their win has brought more excitement to Cleveland. I love the Cavs! All we need now is for the Browns to win.  I like the Indians, but I’m not big on baseball. But anything that brings excitement to Cleveland is fine with me!  Other than that, I’m just taking life one day a time, trying to focus on selling the Cleveland Street Chronicle, to help the homeless, and to make things a little bit better for them and for myself.  I hope that everyone has a safe and wonderful day!!
