Thy Creative Life

As a creative, I can relate to you in many ways. We had dreams of becoming the people we have become today. We dreamed about doing all of the things that we are actually doing right now. We’ve finally locked eyes with success. Yet we often feel dissatisfied with our progress. We’ve stayed up for … More Thy Creative Life

Black Women United!

Oh, 2020.  You were supposed to be lit—a year filled with holidays on the weekends and a pivot into a new decade. You done went and got petty on us with that “lit” part. The world is on fire with a global pandemic, one of the most consequential presidential elections I’ll probably see in my lifetime, and back-to-back instances of racial injustice. (Lord, what did we do to strike … More Black Women United!

Apply Black Pressure

I’ve been trying to find the words. The right words. Then I realized there are none. I know the world is in dissaray right now, discord, and there is apparent division. There is so much tension, hurt, pain, trauma, struggle, and stress. When you witness a human being in distress, struggling to breathe, struggling to … More Apply Black Pressure

My soul is the keeper of my words. It tells me what to write, what to say. I can’t control what it concocts. I move when it tells me to. I move wherever it tells me to. When it compels me, I listen. The sound is deep. I am its vessel designed by intricate parts. … More Deep

Fix Me

To be completely honest, I once considered having plastic surgery because I hated my body. After having three children, my stomach wasn’t as flat as it once was. I gained a considerable amount of weight, and I just wanted zero parts of my new body. At the time, I didn’t fully understand nor did I … More Fix Me

Aunt C

Death landed on our doorstep yet again. But this time, it came for my beloved Aunt Cookie. My Aunt and I had a very special bond that could never be broken. No not even in death. She was my second mother and she called me her “Poopsie”, yes she did LOL. She called me that … More Aunt C

Queens V

She really needs no introduction. But let me tell you a little something about her… She is a unique treasure. A gem of a beauty and  filled with sparkling passion. When in rare form, she holds the power to eat you up and spit you out if she so chooses. IF SHE CHOOSES. She smells like … More Queens V

Happy Now

When I awake in the mornings, there is a peaceful noise. There is a permanent smile that appears to have awaken within me. I’ve never felt a smile quite like this one before. Well…I have in my dreams a few times. It’s so powerful for it to have reached my soul, powerful. My soul is smiling … More Happy Now
