Yanni Is Coming To Town!

On April 9, 2011 Yanni will be accompanied by his orchestra at Radio City Music Hall and possibly a city near you! Check out his website at I submitted an application to join his street team and share more info with you. Here's an excerpt:

Dear Yanni Street Team,

I first came to know and love Yanni and Orchestra while watching a special, Yanni Live at the Acropolis, on PBS when I lived in Boston back in 1998. I've never forgotten that experience. I've been a fan every since. Now Yanni is coming to New York City, my place of birth and residence.

I want you to know, I've never purchased a ticket for an event so far in advance for any reason in my life. Yanni and Orchestra are blessed with such talented gifts from above. In all of the world they are on my list of the most amazing, inspirational, lovely, eccentric, group of musicians.

I am the writer of ThresholdWorld. It is a blog to inform and inspire individuals of the world into positive action. Every experience in life has a cause and effect. It is up to the individual to use the result for the positive. The reason I'd like to be a street team member is to share the inspiring experience I once had watching PBS, for more people of the world to be inspired to create a ripple effect in their environment. I even plan to give a ticket away for someone to experience!

-Be Blessed!

So Yes friends of the World, I will be giving a ticket away to someone special. Orchestra seats have already been purchased. It's been arranged for you to sit right next to yours truly. Will it be you? Send me a letter why you should be blessed with this experience.

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…
