• Please Listen Carefully As Our Menu Options Have Changed

    The last week required me to make several phone calls to access needed information. My friends who are millennials can appreciate my frustration. They seek information online and rarely find it necessary to make a phone call. In this regard, we are similar. However, what I needed wasn’t accessible online. I could feel my level […]

Hey, I’m not complaining, I love warm weather, however, I desired my nail polish to reflect autumn. I chose the color brown, to remind me of the foliage. Yet when […]

  • Pencils Down. Praise Up!

    Y’all I’ve been 50 for 90 days. If I were in a job, I would be considered permanent. I would receive full benefits and the all the rights and responsibilities associated according to plan. I actually consider myself grown (at least when my mommy is not around…LOL). Yet, our chronological age and our spiritual age […]

  • The Devil Wears More Than Prada

    A few nights ago, I was watching one of my favorite movies, “The Devil Wears Prada.” Haven’t seen it? Check it out, especially if you enjoy a good plot, accompanied by stylish clothes.

  • There remains life on the vine

    There are few instances in life that leave me speechless. Our society has morphed into a series of antics, people attempting anything to extend 15 minutes of fame with meaningless action for clicks, likes and the like. One has to be intentional to seek and find authentic beauty. About eight years ago, my mother in […]

  • A Tale of Two Chicks

    It’s just about safe to return to social media in case you are over the battle between the fast food restaurants about whose chicken sandwich is the best.

  • He’ll Keep The Light On For You!

    While growing up and early into my young adulthood, if I went out during the evening and arrived home after 11pm, I could count on two things. First, my mom to be in bed, but awake, and two, that the light above the stove to be on. Recently, KevOnStage lifted up the connectivity within the […]

  • Jesus, Layaway in Reverse

    Tis the season of preparing for the academic year. Having grown up in Chicago (shout out South Side), we began school, traditionally, the Wednesday after Labor Day. Accordingly, we began in June or early July engaging in the ritual of school shopping. Rarely did my mother have the funds to purchase my school clothes on […]

  • The Heavy Lifting Occurs Below Deck

    Blame it on being a latch key child in the 70s and 80s, but I enjoy watching television. There, I said it. #dontjudgeme I don’t always engage in my favorite past time during the week, but if my schedule allows, I play catch up during the weekend. I got sucked into a show called “Below […]
