Over the weekend, I read the NYT article – Successful and Schizophrenic. It blew me away. The author, Elyn Saks articulated some things I have felt and believe, when it comes to living and dealing with a medical condition. But this line stood out for me – “What I refused to accept was my prognosis.” [...]


Bumi Thomas has such a distinctive sound, I find it hard to compare her to anyone. She is who she is and has grasped what it means to own your voice. I heard her live at an event in late 2011, armed with her guitar and voice, she blew me away. Now take that magnetic [...]


Happy New Year!!!!! And trust 2012 has been off to a great start. As for me, you know this jig goes, we keep keeping on! As I write my first post of the year, let me start off by saying thanks so much for taking the time to read my musings, rants, opinions, you know I [...]

The first time I heard about Black Girls Rock! I have to admit, I was like, okay what’s that about? However, listening to Beverly Bond talk about her dream and vision for your black girls, this is a great and innovative idea. There is more to being a black woman than the booty shaking ‘hottie’ [...]


This is sickening and once again proves ignorance is truly a disease. A sick mind is dangerous in the hands of a man with no sense of self or respect for humanity.  The mother in me is boiling at the destruction of innocent souls who cannot begin to understand why they are being persecuted. Imagine [...]


Dear Pastor Terry Jones, Let me start off by saying, I’m fully aware the bible says, “Touch not my anointed and do my prophet no harm.” However, believe me when I say, if I were in a position to ‘club’ or ‘brush’ you across the head, I would. When I’m done, I would ask God for [...]
