Tired in my bones

Tired in my bones....

Sydney needs to get a physical for basketball. We need to make arrangements for a college tour. The car needs to be washed. Zeus needs dog food. I need to make a sponsorship package for CWUW and send out thank you cards for the health focus group. I need to do laundry. I have to call about my student loans. I have 3 grants due by September 8th. I have to wash my hair. The toilet in Syd's bathroom runs all the time. Need to check on my grandmother, my aunt and my cousin's aunt. I have to call to make an appointment with the dermatologist. I should think about the second interview for the new gig. Syd's car needs a tune up, brakes and I'm sure something else. I need to give away some of mom's stuff, finally. I need to clean out all the journals, books and files from Woman to Woman. I need to buy an external hard drive before this computer messes up. I need to make sure Syd arranged for her SATs.

I would like to take a trip to South Africa and work with women living with HIV for about 6 months. I would love to paint. I would like to take yoga classes regularly. I want to visit my girlfriends and cousin in NYC this year. I would love to shop for some new clothes; suits - up my professional game. I would like a facial and a massage. I think I want to be a big sister once the Kid leaves for school or become a foster parent. I want to help my friends with whatever they need. I want to find the fliest black leather jacket at a thrift store this fall. I want to get at least 3 more tats and another piercing. I want to just rest my spirit for a day and let someone else take care of me. I want fresh flowers on occasion in my apt. I want to get my meditation time back on track. I want to start getting my pedicures regularly again. I want to wear a beater and jeans - daily.

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 AM A SEXIST MALE.

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…

I will never, ever, never, ever live in a box.


again.


If I can't be appreciated, celebrated, loved, and befriended with honestly and openly....with no conditions and controls.....then I can't be....for you.

I'm a good friend.  I'm a good person. I deserve good things from good people who really want to celebrate whatever connection I have with them....outside the box.


I'm free to be.

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 …
