Yellow Dress

Yellow Dress

 

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

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…

Memorials

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.

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…

WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO?

All transformation begins with an intense, burning desire to be transformed. The first step in the”renewing of the mind” is desire. You must want to be different (and intend to be) before you can begin to change yourself. Then you must make your future dream a present fact.  You do this by assuming the feeling of your wish fulfilled. By desiring to be other than what you are, you can create an ideal of the person you want to be and assume that you are…

Who Am I: Exploring My Blackness---Preface

I wrote this book because it is necessary.  It is necessary for the time and also to my state of mind in terms of where I came from, as well as where we are as a people.  The more I meditated on the things contained within this book, the more sorrowful I became.  Just like it is important to learn true knowledge of the Holy Bible, learning who you are as a people will let you know just how lost you are every…
