Back in the Day…The Stoop

Sittin’ on the stoop in Bed-Stuy
Always sayin’ hi when the brothers walk by
Just got the etiquette, sittin’ on the top step
With a bag of chips, sit back, relax, enjoy the trip
~ Little Jackie, ‘The Stoop’

Back In the Day...The Stoop

So I’m sitting here on my front stoop, relaxing with my hot fries, eyes closed and reminiscing about my youth growing up in the hood and this song comes on the radio. And BAM…I’m back there again.

Now I’m not from New York (and thereby not from Bed-Stuy), but this song took me back! Like way back to my childhood, young!  No matter where we hung, be it houses, apartment buildings, front porches or the park  it was always all good. And yes…we were ALWAYS snackin’ on something!  Pickles, Hot Fries, Mike.and.Ikes…yaaaaaaas; that was childhood in the hood!  It was simple.  And we were just chillin’, waiting for our homies to be allowed to come outside and play.

I sit here now on my front stoop in the city watching the cars pass, pumping tunes on my radio and observing new tails of street corners, double-dutch and kids playing games running wild in the streets…at least til the street light comes on!  And I realize that I love this place; this time capsule town where even with all of modern technology luring our kids away from the fresh air…there is still a place for them to run free and be children, safe in their hood.

…It’s all good, it’s all good
Cause I love my hood, love my hood
~ Little Jackie, ‘The Stoop’

Green Without Envy

She’s fresh, excitiiiiing, so exciting to meeeee…
    ~ Kool & The Gang, ‘Exciting’

Green Without Envy

One of the many things I love about looking at people is admiring their unique beauty, blended with their distinctive personalities.  And though I have my own body issues, the one thing I have found is that we are all beautiful to someone.  And sometimes, we’re beautiful to many without anyone really understanding why.

And that’s when it kicks in: dislike, disgust, envy of what another’s perception is of someone that has nothing to do with you…NOTHING. And usually it’s not even about what someone out finds beautiful in someone else that we envy. It’s about finding faults in ourselves that make us envious of others who may have similarities but are loved anyway. The biggest issue we have to address in that is this:  it doesn’t matter who finds us beautiful, fresh, exciting or unique.  If we don’t find the things within ourselves to love, bump and support…it won’t matter who loves us because we never will.

So find that one thing you’re loving about yourself and love it hard.  Be green (fresh) without envy.  It will look so much better on you than anything you could add to yourself to make you more appealing to others. 😉

After the After Party…

After the After Party...

This year has been…quite a year. Many losses, many adventures and misadventures and plenty of quiet losses that no one really knows about.

I’m lucky, I’ve survived a lot more than what I anticipated.  And my battles are far from over.  and though we’ve celebrated many a win, the journey is just beginning.

After the After Party...

This party that was 2019 was one hell of a shindig. And now that we’re sorting the riff-raff out and getting folks gone, I’m ready to wrap up everything and take a bite out of 2020.  I’ve wrapped up all but this mondo burger that while I’m starving I simply don’t have the energy to eat.  Maybe…wrap it up for leftoevers.  Yeah…leftovers indeed.
