One More Try

One More Try

It is said the road to hell is paved with good intentions.  But what if you’re trying to get to the lighter parts of the road? What if you’re trying to escape hell? Does that mean be an asshole? I often wonder which is worse…failing miserably at being good when trying to find the light only to end up in the darkness that much more. Or to just be bad and end up in the darkness anyway.

I’m definitely no angel. But I damn sure ain’t the devil either.  Towing that line is a challenge. But let me be a good person, let me do good things and maybe the light will find me in the midst of the darkness and pull me out.

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

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. 😉

Curating the New Year

Curating the New Year

When I first got commissioned to be a Curator for the exhibit, I had no idea what I was getting to.  But as I walked through the gallery, taking notes, I came across this piece that simply spoke to me. The young artist was incredibly talented, colors incredibly vivid and though the work seemed chaotic, I found peace between the lines.

I think…this series of artwork is going to be amazing and this gallery is far too small to contain such talent.
