Mix it Up!

Water will help us all to survive. Yet it's time to plan and do more for our lives.

Picture a cup empty and then with some water. Once you drink it down you're like ...Ahhh. Your body is releaved. Especially if you were already thirsty.

A little later how about a glass of milk, orange juice or red wine! Hmmn. Color, calcium, vitamin C, celebration; Vibrancy, life, action! When I think of the threshold, I think of all the possibilities we have in life. Some of us just decide to survive and others hardly at all.

We become dehydrated when we do nothing or feel deprived, bored or like something is missing in our life. You do have a choice. Add diversity and options to your life. Don't go to the same place day after day, year after year. Have you met significant people?, gone to amazing places? or seen much differently than before? Mixing will produce a different kind of flavor. Keep drinking your water but every now and then mix it up.

I think I'll have a Pina Colada today! I'm gonna have lunch with a friend in Manhattan and then print up some business cards. I've got a new place to go. I'm gonna meet some new people tomorrow! How about You? Got anything to drink besides water? Are just just surviving? Be Blessed! Pace.

Let Us Teach As We March On!

I recently attended a black history celebration in which a woman on the program was singing Lift Every Voice and Sing. This song is the Black National Anthem. As an African American raised in a predominate black church I'd sing it with congregants during service, as an alum of an HBCU (Historically Black College) we'd sing the anthem at special events and as a member of the NAACP (National Association for the Advancement of Colored People) which adopted it as the official song, I'm both humbled and proud to stand up in reverence of my ancestry. The lyrics request for a people to give high praise in continued faith and remembrance to past and present legacies of resilience. Be sure to view the words and related links below.
Yet at this event I was the only one standing. It was a teachable moment as I quickly nudged my eldest daughter to stand with me. I could hear someone whisper, ‘should we be standing?’ I didn’t turn around. I figured someone would tell them or they’d ju…

Day On Dreams!

Happy Blessed 2018! I'm elated that new year celebrations are followed by national commemorative events and the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service. Starting this weekend there will be many opportunities to lend a helping hand in our communities across the United States of America. This is a Day On to Serve! The Corporation for National and Community Service expects to engage nearly 1 million people in thousands of service projects in all 50 states. On this day, federal, state, and local
leaders will join citizens in honoring Dr. King's legacy through service projects addressing pressing
community needs.

In 1994, Congress designated MLK Day as the first and only federal holiday observed as a national day of
service, and charged the Corporation for National and Community Service with leading this national
effort. Americans may visit to find a service project for MLK Day or a year-round volunteer
opportunity in their own community. If you have not already …

Creation Is Life!

I see this page clear, white, new and I write. I'm creating! I first thought about it. I revisited why I began. I looked at my vision wall. I spoke of who I am and I did it. The rest of the story will be completed as I continue.

It is me. The words could not be written without my ideas, my experiences, my action. This is written revelation. The consistency I've needed has always been in me. So in continuing to encourage this action I do the work. I maintain the flow needed to see these black words fill the page with life through letters. Altogether creating for those after me to be inspired in purpose.

Expression has always been a blessing for me. Verbal shares, written thought, movement and dance. Being still in the garden, watching life in the company of my breath. Walking slowly in admiration for the beauty that grows from a seed. All senses glorifying the experience. I give God thanks for every activity of my limbs.

I close my eyes. I breathe in deep. I feel my heart beat…
