Doo Wop. Don’t Give Up That Thing.

Posted July 8th, 2012 by in Blog, Musik, Womanism

This single came out when I was a freshman in high school. Right on time because my new curvy figure (thanks to McD’s hormones from all the junk I ate that summer) was too much for me and I was wilding out with the short shorts and little tops. Hot mess. Though it did get […]

Look for opportunities to experience security, joy and optimism.

“Look for opportunities to experience security, joy and optimism.” This is apparently part of the cure for Adrenal dysfunction. When your adrenals are dysfunctional, usually due to severe emotional stress, poor nutrition. This is categorized, along with Hypo-thyroid as “Low Metabolic Energy” When the body doesn’t have enough energy to function properly, each component of […]

The Vegan’s Need for Meat

Posted July 8th, 2012 by in Blog, Health & Vitality

I certainly don’t qualify for the term “Vegan”, although I do use it to describe my diet. I have played around with other terms, like an acronym that included Vegan, Gluten Free, Sugar Free, Organic, Plant-heavy. This may seem redundant to the meat-eater, but vegetarians know that there are SO many kinds of vegetarians. There […]

Put Your Money in My Hand

Posted June 22nd, 2012 by in Blog, Business

For me, admitting I am an artist was a huge leap of growth. It took decades to admit it out loud. Because 1> It wasn’t ok in my family for that to be your profession and 2> Because of <1> I wasn’t trained in the formal sense. It was not until I made this proclamation […]

If I Ruled the World.

Posted June 22nd, 2012 by in Blog, Musik

Is it ok that I love Nas? Even though he says the N-word, curses and talks about illegal $#!+ ? This is the anthem. Then ‘One Mic’. Below I talk about how the world would be if I ruled it. In place of an essay, a general summary of the elements of the world I […]

The Many Tribes of AFRiCKA

Posted June 21st, 2012 by in AFRiCKA, Blog

I really enjoyed this vid. S/He really went in, covering so many of the “nations” in AFRiCKA. I wish he had referred to the Rwandese as Rwandese or Kinyarwanda though. I was hoping they wouldn’t acknowledge that Belgian-induced Tutsi/Hutu bull. But anyway, enjoy! The song is dope!

I HATE the Way Wheatgrass Tastes

Posted June 20th, 2012 by in Blog, Health & Vitality

But I LOVE the way it makes me feel. I’ve been a wheatgrass juicer since my pregnancy in ’08, but I’ve been a drinker since ’07 when the Great Ali introduced me. It’s been quite a journey, noting that this stuff has a profound effect on my health and energy levels. I first tried it […]

Gays in Afrika

Posted June 20th, 2012 by in AFRiCKA, Blog

I’m supposed to be writing an article about Gays in Africa for Applause magazine. I’m hesitant because I have so much to say, and so much controversy to start 😉 How many of my gay friends will hate me after it is written? Will the magazine agree with what I have to say? Is it […]

How to Say Perseverance in Yoruba

Posted June 20th, 2012 by in AFRiCKA, Blog

The day got better. Today was one of those days when perseverance paid off. Reminded me to keep doing what I must do. Aside from poetry, there is Yoruba. Although, there is actually no distinction since Yoruba language is poetry. I started this Yoruba school journey over 5 years ago; after spending a year seriously […]
