Okay. It was never easy for me. I was born a poor black child. I remember the days, sittin’ on the porch with my family, singin’ and dancin’ down in Mississippi. Except that it was Dallas, Texas in 1982.
Spanky Lee was the 2nd child of young parents, a preacher’s daughter and a smooth talker from the backwoods of Friendship, Louisiana. His parents knew early on that he was a special child, when at 8 months old he authored his first book in French, a scholarly critique of Saussure’s theoretical reconstructions of the PIE vocalic system, and particularly his theory of laryngeals. He…he was smart is what I’m trying to say. So…Spanky developed an early love of the humanities, spending his days reading, drawing, singing, writing, and humanitying. After graduating from high school, he went on to complete a Bachelor’s degree, double-majoring in Psychology and Ethnic Studies with an African-American Studies concentration, while volunteering as a mentor for incarcerated students. These experiences informed his already observant worldview and also provided a few laughs. Baby convicts. HA!
Anyway, after working as a church sekatary, choir director, loan funder, and high school teacher, Spanky finished a Master of Liberal studies degree, concentrating in Psychology, Religion, and Human Studies. With a dedication to human thinking and behavior, Spanky writes from a unique perspective, blending humor, edge and mindfulness with a dialectic approach to cultural issues. He uses
gargantuan big words.
In his spare time, Spanky is a science reader, a foodie, a cook, a
tired proud uncle, and a diner. Well, he’s not technically a diner. He just loves to dine. What’s the word for that? Dinee? Dinette? Is Spanky a dinette?
Aaaanyhoo, some other stuff and
I am Spanky is great. Read this blog.
Thank you and goodnight!
