“Education is a progressive discovery of our own ignorance.” – Will Durant

I’m most definitely going through a spiritual journey and so, I’ve been holding back from posting blogs to stay away from looking like a confused duck. ::Laughs:: I thought about it and now I’ve decided to write. Why not? I figure you judging my thoughts or my coming of age is wack anyway, so why should it matter? In the meantime, stay tuned. Return and stay inspired. Remember that teaching the babies is not about giving your two cents, but being a positive example of progress and application. Thanks for the continued support. 

P.S. I miss my babies in Honduras. :-)

“He Moonwalked With The Warriors”

“My mama always used to tell me: ‘If you can’t find somethin’ to live for, you best find somethin’ to die for.” – Tupac Shakur

Tupac Shakur

There are often times in life when we feel like we’ve been hit with a rebirth. All of a sudden, the things that mattered to us the most, become things of the past, and patterns that you never thought about performing, become things of everyday life. I think Tupac was in a transition – a transition that wasn’t complete. I think he was a dreamer, a believer and a passionate person who dedicated his lifelong thoughts and heart to the betterment of humanity. Right now, I have so many friends who are going through transitions, who need to be reminded that tomorrow isn’t promised. Move and act now. I too, doubt myself and my potential and end up wasting more than enough time. As a reminder, I wanted to tell you and I, that we are a legends in the flesh and God is in us. Maybe, just maybe, Tupac wanted more for you than he wanted for himself. What an amazing spirit. Check out the beautiful Ruby Dee and her perspectives on the legendary artist. Read more…

Angela Davis & This Post Racial Society (?)

July 17, 2009

“We have to talk about liberating minds as well as liberating society.” – Angela DavisFree_Angela_Button

After the constant evaluation of President Obama and the recent interregation of Sonia Sotomayor, is the country really over racism? It seems as the most of us are “over it” in regards to working together and sharing ideas- but are we really “over it” in regards to our real lives and our “outside-of-work” experiences? Have stereotypes been shattered and prejudices murdered? Or are they alive and well? How far along do we have to go? Better yet, how far along have we come? Let me know your views on the following video: Read more…

Suga-T, “Sprinkles” Love In The Bay

July 17, 2009

“Struggling as a female artist, struggling with male chauvinist mindsets… Dealing with other females who are competitive, who are intimidated to work with you.  Dealing with b.s. and management.  Building a corporation and being a mother raising my children and going through challenging relationships, has all been hard.” – Suga -T, HipHopDX.com 

 

 

Deep, deep behind the beautiful smile and my edgy style, there’s a mini Al Pacino. I am an absolute reflection of INSOMNIA. Ha. With that being said, I received an e-mail around 1:15 am from Suga-T (E-40′s sister) about a community event for student athletes in the Bay Area. I thought it was such a great reflection of her (along with several other organizations), to award children whom excel (in both sports and in education) with awards, donations and future inner-city sports facilities. She’s simply a reflection of the notion, “Live To Change Something” and she’s continuing to stay an example of community contribution. Congrats Suga on your latest project and your appreciation for humanity. We could all use a “sprinkle” of sugar.

What Makes A Woman A Woman?

July 17, 2009

“I love to see a young girl go out and grab the world by the lapels. Life’s a bitch. You’ve got to go out and kick ass.” – Maya Angelou

Beyond the designer hand bangs, a figure that turns you on and the sound of her sweet voice – what makes a woman a woman? Is it the way she walks?  Could it be the way she talks…?  Or is it the way she feels? Is it her smile that you’re addicted to or her mannerisms? Does it really matter what she looks like? Or feels like? Or what type of soap she uses? Or is it simply a biological gift not eligible for return? Let me know what you think, as society’s views are often shifting… and women want to know. Right ladies? We want to know.
