About: This writer (LaToya)

*** WARNING ***

The peace maker made me post this

The schizophrenic 52-year-old Caucasian man warned me not to

He believes this site is for believers, dreamers

And the highly motivated and they all want him dead

There are about 8 people who live in my mind

Of all different nationalities, sizes, ages and gender

Screaming to be heard

They are all trying to get along in such a small space

Not always easy!

I apologize in advance if you read anything offensive or controversial

I have very little if any control over any of them

Oh boy!



I am a sucker for love and a sob story; I am definitely for the underdog. I am a little weird but very loving, I am perfectly imperfect but shhhh, don’t tell anyone, I wrote a poetry book called Mental Notes  in 2011 about addiction and all the insanity associated with it. I have randomly been posting pieces of the book to my blog. Here is the kindle link for a preview http://www.amazon.com/dp/B005SFS54U/ref=rdr_kindle_ext_tmb  I am so grateful for the road I am traveling and I thank you all for traveling with us. 

There is way too much I can say about myself but I won’t bore you with my way to boring BIO. We all have one common bond, we love to write!

I am still trying to figure all this out (life), in the meantime, I will do what the universe has called me to do! Write!

2013 update 2 times published! Mental Notes 2 “Grey Areas” take a peek inside the book, just click on the link http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00C333YGO/ref=rdr_kindle_ext_tmb

  1. In honor of this occasion I decided it was time for me to upload a Gravitar picture (rather than just accept the generic one). So by posting this Reply now it should appear, right?

  2. WOW – what an output – both in imagination and in text – wish I had your stamina! 😉
    But I’ll try – and by the way – thanx for your Likes and following my nonsense already 🙂
    – just got started 3 days ago ^^
    Think I don’t have to tell ya keep up the awe-inspiring work, cause so many did already 🙂

      1. like “shit, my n-th personality just split?” (ok, that’s an old one… but wtf not wtc 😉 – thnx!
        [commercial_mode=on]and don’t forget to take a look at theoldnewcity[commercial_mode=off] ^^

      1. I think that is so funny because I assumed it was spanish,,,lol, I had to look up the word “Gracias” and I wasn’t real sure what to say back to you from your first comment. I’M SORRY.

  3. Hey, I’m Johnny. Glad you found my blog, now here I am showing up at yours. Looking forward to reading you. Thanks for the follow. : ) btw, I’m not crazy either.


      1. I thought it to perhaps be a self-portrait and/or portrait of you. I find it to look enough like your picture to think this. Of course : ) my brain is not a normal one (this is not a joke, although it IS funny.) This causes me to have some problem recognising faces.

        I remember when I was a very young man, I worked for an engineering firm wherein our manager, at the time, was a sort of prankster with an odd sense of humour. Because his moods changed radically from hour to hour, he used to pretend, jokingly, to be two different men–with two different names. This is quite embarrassing, but I was the only fellow there who had to be told this was a joke and there were not, indeed two different managers with a similar appearance.

  4. Hi… dear Latoya I’ve recently posted English version of my poem called “the bird” on my blog sardunyalar.com. May I ask you have a look on this poem linguistically? It will be great…
    thanks… best wishes

  5. Just stopped by to thank you for your recent like/follow on Shift Key and peruse your excellent blog. So much to read; so much well done. And more to read… a pleasure, thank you.

  6. Hi there,
    It’s been great following your posts. Thanks so much for them.
    My website has moved and I’d love to keep you as a reader.
    Could you subscribe to my new mailing list at the following link:


    Hope to stay in touch,
    Anne Skyvington

  7. Holy snapping duck shit. What a following you have. And even numerous nominations for the prestigious Lobster Award.
    But I like your space too.
    I’m attracted to people who can cheerfully discuss psychotic drug experiences, knitting, spontaneous orgasms, great Christmas gift ideas, alcoholic blackouts, the perfect steak sandwich and interplanetary exploration – all without a change of tone.
    OK. I haven’t seen the whole lot yet. But it’s probably in there somewhere. Or will be.

    1. These bloggers only follow me because I followed them first so if you call that a following, I guess 🤷🏽‍♀️ I don’t like blogger awards, the expectation is too high for you to write a passage, a memoir, a biopsychosocial and a fucking thesis! This is an award free zone, we are all winners 🏆

      Keep reading, like Ragu, it’s in there 🤣 Thanks for visiting, please come again ❤
