• A Spirit of Excellence or Spirit of Expectation?

    The Walls Group is getting some righteously deserving air time for a song entitled, “Perfect People.”  It beautifully unfolds the image of elements of a seemingly perfect life exhibited through daily living and reminds the listener that “this song is not for you.” As the tempo slows, it beckons the listener that if trials and […]

  • The God Of A Reprise

    One undeniable fact about me is  that I love music.  More specifically, I love a good song.  Dig a little deeper for a song and you might be blessed to come across one with a reprise.  Now, we’re cooking with gas! I adore a reprise because deeply embedded is the sensation of time standing still […]

  • These Boots Were Made For…

    This has been an incredible winter in North Carolina.  Its been distinctively different from the past 20 years I’ve called this state my home.  I grew up in Chicago, and was accustomed to harsh winters.  My escape to the southern way of life was a welcomed change from my history.  However, I found the last […]

  • Is It Live Or Is It Memorex?

    During the 80s, in addition to big hair, asymmetrical clothing and rap, there was a fabulous advertising campaign put out by Memorex.  Sidebar: Cassette tapes came after 8 tracks and before compact discs (for my more contemporary readers…lol).  Okay, we’re back to the future.  The campaign asked the question: Is it live or is it Memorex?

  • Looking For the Perfect Beat People?

    Music for me is transformational and transformative.  It has the ability to move me from one space in time to another.  It has the power to allow me to reflect, and it soothes me in a manner that few other conventions can.  Listening to music is a part of my daily regimen and as I’ve […]

  • When God Says Shut Up!

    He finally did it! Smack out of nowhere, he did what some around me may consider his best work to date.  He shut my mouth! He, being God allowed a sinus infection to drain into my throat and snatched my voice. So, here I sit, watching The Voice, with no voice! I guess even God Almighty […]

  • When Did You Become Afraid of the Dark?

    As a child, I insisted that my mom keep the light on in the bathroom, which was near to where I slept.  I was afraid of the dark.  I’m not exactly sure when my fear began.  I believe it must have been after my father passed.  Prior to that time, I would actually sit in […]

  • Increasing Capacity with a Monkey on my Back

    I went out of the house night before last for the first time in two days.  Happy to report that I wasn’t sick.  Instead, I was still in recovery mode from my four hour drive home (that usually takes 25 minutes) due to inclement weather.  It was straight gridlock all over the city, and when […]
