A Woman With Two Sticks

A Woman With Two Sticks

“I said I got to…go to knooooow! *drumbeats*”
~Lenny Kravitz, Are You Gonna Go My Way

One of the things I love the most about a good song is the drumming. When it’s hard, pounding and RIGHT…you simply can’t go wrong. And one of my favorite drummers is Ms. Cindy Blackman. Lawd that woman is air.  So I just had to hop in the studio today and channel her awesomeness.  Whew! Listening to her rock out just gives me so much life!

A Woman With Two Sticks

Thank you Cindy. If not for women like you and Lady Shiela E, I don’t think us minority darlings would have ever wanted to pick up drumsticks. Rock on, Mama. Rock on!

and because she’s just so damn good…here’s a 2nd video of her awesomeness!!!

Our Makidada…

Our Makidada

For Karinoelle, my SL & RL sister

We were born in an ocean of bits and bytes, 0s and 1s
Finding kinship in computer languages
Only on the grid to find
Our reach a 30-minute train ride
And there we were…sisters
A 20-minute turned longer break
Broke down our 0’s and 1’s
Cracked our codes
Firewall exceptions granted and now…
Our program runs smoother with each login

Sisters we were before we came face-to-face
Bonded by love, respect and grace
That first hug was like coming home
And it’s never left me
I don’t need to login every day
To embrace my sister
Or to go X # of stops down the red then transfer to find you
You’re always in my heart

If this grid shuts down tomorrow
Our ocean of 0s and 1s depleted
We are still connected
I am still your little sister
And nothing will keep me from it

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. 😉

Taking a Bite

Taking a Bite

So I was supposed to be meeting a friend for lunch and got a text they were running late; start without them. The smell of Reuben Sandwiches was so overwhelming that I had to try one. No sooner than I start to open my mouth to take a bite, I hear a camera shutter.  I look up and lo and behold…my friend was watching me from across the room and trying to take photos of me on the low.

I mean really?  Taking pictures of me while I eat? How invasive!  Weirdo! 😛

Everyone has their ‘thing’. I guess theirs is watching me eat. smh…
