Yellow Dress

Yellow Dress


I remember the bright yellow dress she wore that summer eve. It was like the color of fluorescent

 love shining so bright that night. A special moment in time past, I shall never forget. The winds

blew softly as it whispered its tender cries of calm between us, while the breeze of freedom set

upon us to run free. That night we sat upon an old couch on the back porch…

write the vision

Write the vision; make it plain on tablets, so he may run who reads it. For still the vision awaits it's appointed time; it hastens to the end - it will not lie. if it seems slow, wait for it; it will surely come; it will not delay. Habakkuk 2v2,3

The above quote is what everybody should live by. Every idea starts with a vision, but seldom do we write them down, as a result many multimillion pound ideas fall by the wayside, because we either forget, don't…

The society is plagued by diverse problems, including drug abuse, child abuse, domestic violence, crime, child trafficking, sex trafficking etc.

Literary Woes

I am struggling to continue writing my second novel and I've hit a rough spot.  I've written and written and then I just suddenly stopped.  I don't know how to begin again.  Now, that's not to say that I haven't written a lot already.  I have about 200 pages from my first writing.  I was so inspired to write this new book after receiving favorable personal reviews from friends and family on Facebook who read my first novel, "Masculine Strength."  I literally wrote nonstop for three weeks.…

As we celebrate our first official holiday of the year allow me to encourage all to be safe as we travel while enjoying the company of family, friends and our love ones. Let's do so in the spirit of peace, love and joy.

Memorials are days and or times set aside for remembering and reflecting. That said, let us remember who we are and whose we are.  Let us also remember and pay tribute to our servicemen past and present who sacrificed so much for this country.

Peace and…

Surviving as the Only Black in the Office

Being the only black person working in an office environment can be challenging, and very intimidating; but does it have to be that way?  I was in that situation for over 25 years , and while many things in the workplace have changed for the better; being the only black in the office still gives most of us a lot of anxiety. I know personally how tricky and scary it can be. Corporate America severely lacks in diversity, there are only 5 black CEO's at Americas 500 biggest…

Love Will Not Be Denied

We are facing a world crisis that will continue to grow as long as we deny the power of love.  The lack of love breeds a ground for war.  Where there is war, we find desperation.  Each soul is born to bear love.  No love means no life.  The world is a cancerous monster right now denying love.  There is no way we can move forward and have hope for the future for our children if we do not face this epidemic.

What has happened to Paris is a reality check for mankind to seek a better way…
