    “No Filter” September 7, 2018

    I recently read an article on @Elitedaily by @aratagrams on what #filters are creating in the mind for women. It said, “Like every kind of social media, Snapchat is a company with its own agenda. It wants to flatter & persuade you to keep using it, but has no obligation to tell you the truth or take responsibility.” That stood out most to me. A lot of us lack self-care & make it a habit to put a filter on our life. We don’t take control because we can just cover it up. But it’s not easy to cover up low self-esteem. I’ve never had great skin.  Terrible eczema, dry…

    “Summer Perspective”

    Frustrated by R.LUM.R “Here I go talking ’bout the same thing; in and out as quick as you can fade away. It don’t matter what I say if you want me to chain you to the sky, oh my. You give me your kaleidoscope in monochrome. So unlike the way you color me at home. Some days it’s so vivid. But mostly I would rather be blind.” He also continues to mention throughout the song: “It never seems like you’re the one that has to choose.” R.LUM.R’s speaking about pursuing his career in music and everything else in his life that’s keeping him from it or causes him to feel…

    Overflow 2003

    We had a huge 6 disc CD player in our living room. I would turn it on and listen to music while I cleaned the kitchen. It helped that I had my mom’s taste in music. I’d have all of her Body + Soul albums that included artist like Smokey Robinson, Isley Brothers, Gregory Abbott, The O’Jays etc. The other 5 CD’s were artist like Mary J. Blige (Share My World), Rome, Keith Sweat etc. I was in the zone every time. I deep cleaned to the rhythm, basically. I’d stop dancing when he came in from work and find a way to clutter myself in a mess so he’d…

    Define Privilege (2015)

    I think it’s relevant we all take some time to understand “privileged and prejudiced.” An experience I had at work should help a few people out that would rather assume these experiences do not exist or others who would rather call someone racist. There is a difference, it can be a real close call but I never rush to assume its racism first. For example, I am mind blown how customers, without any consequences, can casually walk into a place of business & say “I’m tired of dealing with a bunch of niggers” or “No, not you! I don’t want help from any niggers today!” Or look you dead in the…
