Love, Loss and Chandeliers

www.youtube.com/watch?v=2vjPBrBU-TM”

Finding love also means learning how to see it – God, how I love Oprah. She comes up with these amazing quotes seemingly out of thin air. I wish I could do that. Mostly I have to content myself with reusing quotes that other brilliant minds have uttered. I’m ok with that though. Not everyone […]

Too Busy Ballin’

I’ve had some positive life changes recently. Things are looking up, up, up. As with most changes, even positive ones come with their fair share of challenges. When life takes a turn in the right direction sometimes we unintentionally lose sight of what’s important. If you’re like me you get distracted and let certain things […]

Forty-seven percent of Black women will never wear a wedding dress and are losing the battle for love overall.

Black Lives Matter ~ Ferguson

I hate to say it, but while I’m saddened, maddened and severely disappointed by the grand jury’s decision not to prosecute Darren Wilson for the murder of unarmed teen Mike Brown, I can’t say that I’m surprised. I’ve been alive long enough to know that when it comes to the lives of our black children […]

The Bluest Eye ~ Redux

Bitches wanna be white so bad. Was one white Instagrammer’s response to Tameka “Tiny” Harris’ (T.I’s wife) new permanent eye color change. Is this true? That’s the question I’d like to ask my sisters of color. To the pigment changers (bleachers), the nose straighteners, the silky weave wearers with locks that graze formerly cocoa colored […]

Sucking Lemons

I recently went on a date consisting of good conversation and lemon water. For 2 hours I sat in a lounge with a sweet and sincere fella talking about the environment and the future of male and female relationships. Homey was earthy, humble and chill. I liked him well enough until my stomach started growling. […]

Killing Kindness

My sister has grave concerns for my safety because she says I invite trouble. She uses my most recent interaction with a pan handler to argue her case. This is what happened. The gentleman was well-dressed considering he was claiming to be without food, funds, house or a home. He approached black women on the […]

Fear of Failing

Some people are afraid of heights. While I understand their anxiety, looking down doesn’t bother me. It’s falling down that produces all the terror. ~ the Super Sistah ‘I’m failing.’ I recently admitted to a family member. ‘How can you be a failure?’ She asked in a tone that suggested I was being ridiculous. ‘You’re […]

This Week in Reviews ~ June 2014

I love hearing from my readers. It makes the often laborious, lonely and doubt-filled process of writing worthwhile. Every time I hear something positive from a fan I feel like I’ve touched someone’s life and that feeling makes everything I do meaningful. Thank you for the kind words. Keep them coming. See the review here: […]

Nappy Natural?

When a relative of mine (you know who you are) is being mean, provoking or just being a straight up be-yatch, she likes to remind me that my newly natural hair isn’t silky. Remind me in a Denzel-Training-Day voice that Joan (i.e. Tracee Ellis Ross hair) has nothing on me. She likes to gently, not […]

All Bend no Break

There are times when life challenges us. There are periods when we feel like if life gives us one more trial, one more test or one more setback then that will be it. Game over. We’re done. Although we consider ourselves strong and resilient, this survival stuff has become a tad too difficult. Life has […]
