The Ride – No Ticket Required

Hey There,

Welcome to The Ride. 

Allow me to introduce myself.  My name is Carla Thompson.  When asked, “What do you do?” I simply reply, “I am a writer/educator.”

Short and sweet.  You can fill in the blanks.

Yeah, I am a writer although I penned a book about my adventures as a Harlem native living in Montgomery, Alabama a while ago.  And I did some freelance journalism, but the last article I wrote was over a year ago. 

 And about that “educator” part.   I am adjunct instructor of communication studies.  I teach business communication and public relations but I am not sure how much “educating” I do.

 As I grow older, I realize that there is not much I am certain of.  And that’s okay, I love to learn.  I love being right but I love being wrong even more.

Discovery is what makes the ride so meaningful.  You never know where it’s going to take you.

Who knew I would be a Harlem native, Evanston, IL educated, Hollywood wanna-be who takes a tour of duty in the Deep South only to return to the BK (i.e. Brooklyn), NYC.

 But enough about me.

 Once again, welcome to The Ride.
