Death tryin' to kick at the crib

Grandmother is VERY ill and my aunt tells me that she is very sick but won't tell me what the hell that means.

Death -

2002 - Aunt and Great Aunt die within two days of each other
2004 - Mom
2005 - Mom's Brother
2006 - Mom's Sister

7 siblings, 3 great uncles, one great aunt, 2 grandparents, 2 cousins - one family

I actually tired of Death.

There are families that are still waiting for the first grandparent to die. They have no idea what it feels like. YIKES.

I'm sorta just melancholy. The kids is too actually.

As we approached the hospital, I was like UGH!! This icky feeling came over me. It was near hospital. As we approached, the hospital had been renovated. I calmed my ass down.

I just faced the possibility of another death. I'm ok. My cousin was sending me texts about our moms. She was missing them. I guess death was on her mind too.

Death has been just kickin it. Chillin'. Its annoying and needs to go away for a minute.

Its all a part of life. Nature way of keeping things new. Prayerfully all the people you have lost have gained peace. Remember that. Pray for their peace. And you will find it also.

Confessions of a Recovering Misogynist" by Kevin Powell

In the past few weeks, I've had the opportunity to have very brief conversations with Kevin Powell. Its very interesting to speak with someone with similar passions for community service. As someone who has been very transparent on her blog, I find this essay by Kevin refreshing. I just happen to see this on Facebook as someone posted it many months ago.
Thanks KP.


I take no great pride in saying this, I am merely stating a fact. It is not that I was born this way-rather, I was born into this male-dominated society, and consequently, from the very moment I began forming thoughts, they formed in a decidedly male-centered way. My "education" at home with my mother, at school, on my neighborhood playgrounds, and at church, all placed males in the middle of the universe. My digestion of the 1970s American popular culture in the form of television, film, ads, and music only added to my training, so that by as early as age nine or ten I saw females, includ…

The Ankh

Ankh : The Original Cross

The Ankh is defined as: The symbolic representation of both Physical and Eternal life. It is known as the original cross, which is a powerful symbol that was first created by Africans in Ancient Egypt.

The Ankh is commonly known to mean life in the language of Ancient Kemet (land of the Blacks) renamed Egypt by the Greeks. It is also a symbol for the power to give and sustain life, the Ankh is typically associated with material things such as water(which was believed by Egyptians to regenerate life), air, sun, as well as with the Gods, who are frequently pictured carrying an Ankh. The Egyptian king is often associated with the Ankh also, either in possession of an Ankh (providing life to his people) or being given an Ankh (or stream of Ankhs) by the Gods. This can be seen in the picture of King Senworsert below who is holding two Ankhs to his chest. There are numerous examples that have been found that were made from metal, clay and wood. It is usually worn as …
