News, News, and More News

First I would like to say rest in peace to our fallen ball players as well as Leonard Nimoy. I would like to say happy birthday to Tasha  Smith and her equally gorgeous twin sister. I would like to say congratulations to my nephew, Naigere for getting accepted into The University of the Arts in Philadelphia,

Now, everybody is buzzing about Zendaya and her red carpet look. I didn't know who she was until she was offered the part of Aaliyah for the biopic. I don't see what all of the fuss is about. She is embracing who she is. The commentator who was classless enough to spout that racial dumbness on tv should not be surprised that she is now currently unemployed. Burn! Watch what you say out of your mouth! If you don't have anything nice to say don't say anything. Simple...

 Changing gears here. I have begun to experiment with different flavored cheesecakes. My chocolate swirl didn't come out the way I had hoped because the chocolate cooled off too fast but the two strawberry cheesecakes came out beautiful. I also made a pineapple cheesecake that was wonderfully accepted.

Post-Awards Hoopla

Aside from the glamorous gowns and funny antics of presenters I appreciated the message John Legend and Common brought forth. There are more black men incarcerated today than there were slaves in 1850. That speaks loud and clear about America's racial attitude towards black men. The question now becomes, how will America correct this problem of protecting human rights at home when she so loudly protests against human rights violations abroad?

 On a different note, a much more pleasant note, upon my return I have yet to introduce you to my two younger children...

 Yehudi is my first-born daughter. Spunky and very observant, she has a mind of her own and the stubborn Leo in her is not shy. At 2 1/2 she is definitely a character all her own.

Chava is 9 months old and is just as hilarious and demanding as his big sister, Yehudi. Crawling, standing, babbling and grabbing plates of food...

I'll Huff and I'll Puff and I'll Blow Your House Down...

That is how I woke up feeling this morning and the temps outside read 1°. Yes! 1° with a wind chill of -15°! Lord, old man winter can you please stop disrespecting my bones!

 Spring is right around the corner and I am anxiously awaiting the warmer weather...

Freezing Cold

It's winter, I get it. Winter is cold, I get that too. What I don't get are these Arctic temperatures on the middle of the east coast. Woke up to a temperature reading of 2° with a wind chill of -15°. Those are insane readings. I need a warm climate...

Valentine's Day

Soo many people get bent out of shape if their boo doesn't put on a massive PDA for today. Cards, flowers and candy is nice but should the true love not be there the act of love is - you guessed it - empty. Why not revel in the heart fluttering feeling of love you get from thinking about your love. The tingle in your body from reading a message from your love. What happened to slow dancing to Marvin Gaye just because?

Love To Love You

Don't you know I love to love you?
 Your voice intoxicates me like fine wine,

Making me swoon in time

to your smooth baritone seduction.

Don't you know I love to love you?

The lack of respect people have for others' time is astounding. I'm just sitting here shaking my head in irritation.

Sistahs With Purpose w/Tina and Yani

Tonight I was invited to listen in (and maybe contribute) on a blogtalk radio show called Sistahs with Purpose. Tonight's theme was What would be your perfect Valentines Day? Interesting topic with a wonderful array of insight. I read a few new poems I had written over the last few months and it felt good to read them aloud.

Why do we make such a big deal out of Valentines Day? Why do we search harder for love than for our life's purpose? Love is the ultimate addiction...

I'm Back!!!

I have been on a serious hiatus courtesy of Life. Since my last post I have gone through some serious changes. Found out some more information/knowledge and made some discoveries about myself (some just remembering moments). 2015 is starting out wonderfully! Happy New Year! I'm Baccckkk! Long time Locked in a slumber of my mind Subliminal incarceration From space and time. Out of body viewing days, weeks, years Pass by like Roll of Thunder Hear My Cry As I waste time asking why? All the time I should have acknowledged the reason So I could transition To my new season Of metamorphosis Away my beautiful self...
