sometimes you have to stop, take stock in your own life and acknowledge just how blessed you are in spite of your journey … my best days are ahead and the sun will keep shining!

And then I Cried…

So many heartfelt losses during 2016. The tears rolled down my cheeks, and an ugly cry welled up in my throat (Kashif, Prince, Sis. Afeni, Colonel Abrams, George Michael, Phife, Natalie Cole, Maurice White, Vanity, Sharon Jones, Billy Paul, on & on)!

Joey Gallant: Makes You Stop & Listen!

Posted on | February 8, 2017 | No Comments

Remember the video of the soulful mochalatte crooner paying tribute to President Obama that made its way to every inbox when the world realized we were heading for a horrid 4 years under the leadership of the new person occupying the Oval Office? Well, here’s another offering from Joey Gallant that will simply make you ‘pause!’

There isn’t much to say except, “shhh please listen!”

Coming in 2017…

Sometimes you have to step out of the shadows in your own life when you realize that the life you thought you’d be living is not the life for you after all! #truestory

Independence ~ Self Assuredness 

A Concerning Observation!

Posted on | September 24, 2016 | No Comments

Last night, one of my very best friends treated me to a show featuring Charlie Murphy and D.L. Hughley, with Terry Hodges as the opening comedian as an early birthday gift. Anyone who really knows me, knows that I can just sit and ogle at D.L. for days — he’s been deemed my ‘next lifetime husband’ (snickering)!

Living: Inhaling/Exhaling & Smiling!

Posted on | September 14, 2016 | No Comments


So FYI ~ a vacation doesn’t always involve sandy beaches/airports or passport stamps ~ but when that word hasn’t been in your vocabulary for 5 years, and you know that it’s time ~ you plan to do things that you’ve wanted for quite a while and you make it a reality! On the day that I created a facebook photo album, I had a date to see a LADY! (a green lady who stands 305 feet and represents much, historically than she does in the light of beauty).

Do Our Black Lives Really Matter?

Heartbreaking ~ how can we fight and say that Black Lives should matter to others when they seem NOT to matter to US?!

2016 has not been the kindest. 

I have learned hard lessons about life, and love particularly — matters of the heart. I have also been forced to make harsh decisions about what is best for me, and I began reevaluating relationships — on all levels.

I am not sorry for what I’m feeling. I’m not depressed over what I’ve experienced.

I am no longer expending energy on relationships with family members whom I have previously attempted to establish ties with. If you cannot make time for me, then God bless you and so be it!

Friendships are treasured relationships — to me — but perhaps the importance of friendship is something that only I hold near and dear. That sentiment, seems not to be reciprocal these days. In that area of my life, again I will no longer make excessive efforts.

Romance? Maybe another time!

What can I do?!  

Dust myself off, and keep me in the foreground!
