Being my own best friend

I've been getting the message of being your own best friend a lot lately, from all different places.  It's like  the universe is sending me signs.  One of these signs came from Afrika Bohemian of Tribe 53's post called  UHURU THURSDAYS: WOMBMAN OWN YOURSELF!  She had been inspired by a post Tikeetha from A Thomas Point of … Continue reading Being my own best friend

America is being torn apart and it’s bigger than polictics…

My heart feels heavy lately.  Like I’m on the verge of tears one minute and angry the next.  The continuous posts on Facebook and social media of Donald Trump.  The fact that I have friends and family that are posting racist and hateful posts. Trying to stay open minded and let people have their opinions, … Continue reading America is being torn apart and it’s bigger than polictics…

Invisible Upsouth

For years I had been friends with Christopher Johnson on Facebook.  It wasn't until this past fall I actually had a chance to get together and speak with him in person.  I had checked out some of his performances on youtube that he had posted and I really enjoyed his poetry and spoken word.  "I … Continue reading Invisible Upsouth

Pure Poetry

The count down is on til Valentine's day.  That's right, just two days and my baby boy, my "pooky bear" will be 18 years old.  So I'm sticking with my theme of posting songs by black artists for black history and incorporating love quotes from songs.  Last night I was looking for a song to … Continue reading Pure Poetry
