I recently wrote about NFT’s, Non Fungible Tokens, from the perspective as a novice, dear reader, I am still a novice! As I continue to learn more about NFTs, their current value within our society and the connection to cryptocurrency I am keeping my ear open to what’s being discussed as it relates to pop […]Read more "Mo’ Money! Mo’ Money! EDI! EFI! NFT!"
At some point I began planning events in my head. I daydreamed about what outfits I would pack for my trip to Virginia. I haven’t been to this part of the country in years and I looked forward to traveling outside of Connecticut. “Maybe I need new luggage too?” I thought as I perused online […]Read more "Love, Locs, and Plants"
Yesterday was a good day. On the 19th of January I discussed the local threats that we may face here in Connecticut as we all continued to talk about the insanity of January 6th. I prayed for safety for all of us as we prepared for the inauguration of both Biden and Harris. And on […]Read more "We’ve learned that quiet isn’t always peace"

Everyone was talking about Tyler Perry’s […]Read more "“Help Someone Cross”-Tyler Perry"

I grew up differently than today’s kids. We were latch key kids. My older sister used to get off the school bus and walk to my school. She would get on an elevator-go to the top floor and pick me up. We’d head down the elevator together hand in hand and walk home. Sometimes we […]Read more "The World of Cassette Tapes, Cabbage Patch Kids and Crack Vials: I’m an 80’s Baby!"
Aside from wanting to practice meditation more, I want to be more mindful of my every waking moment. I have found myself bubbling over with anger at what I perceive as a great injustice. (In reality, most injustices are not worth an iota of my time-but in the moment: I am ready to ponce). […]Read more "Old Miserable Jamaican Lady Syndrome"
