These are words that I really needed to "hear" today my sistah - Thanks.


Wakin' up and realizing that you forgot to turn your clock back - giving you an extra hour of much needed rest!
...sitting at work thinking about the last piece of chicken you hid in the back of the frig. behind everything and when you arrive home, dropping everything onto the floor to retrieve that last piece of chicken, you open the frig. and the chicken is gone!

And you know, that if you stay long enough, somebody will come through with something that you will need - at a "discounted" price!

What's funny is that they have closed the schools... just because we might get snow!!?? (they did the same last week).

D.C. will never learn...
1. Walking into my mothers' house and seeing her sitting in her favorite chair,watching her favorite program(s), any/and all of the judges,ie. Judy, Joe Brown, Mathis, Milian etc.
My mothers comments about the many defendents and so on, are hilarious!!

2. Being the only African American on public transportation,ie. bus, train or plane for a long while; and then, a bunch of loud, garralous, laughing, joke cracking, black folk men/women board, who have a minimal concept of quiet, protocol or whispering. Moments like this,are when I feel some sort of 'solidarity' with the 'community' of my African American self.
And then of course it sort of starts wearing off, and I await their departure/ or at least them 'settling down' somewhat (no condescension); but not before exchanging phone numbers, email addresses, and even hugs sometimes Cool. lol!
In many ways, the African American is always a traveling 'stranger' at home in the U.S.

there's nothing like lying on your back on the grass, sun on your face, daydreaming, on a bright summer's day... staring up at a vivid blue cloudless sky bsm either alone, or with someone very special.

Or as above, on a blanket... on a clear cool starry night.
Bein' who you really are and not givin' a damn how anyone feels about it.

Playing in the sandbox wit' my roadies.

Being around grown ass women who know what's up and know how to deal in any situation.

Miles on the stereo. Cosmo on the table. Woman on my couch just kickin' it.
