Rapper/Actor Donald Glover aka Childish Gambino, recently caught the attention of the folks over at the Huffington Post for posting a series of “troubling” Instagram pics. Glover’s posts offered an intimate (not that kind of party) glance into his state of mind.
As always I’d like to start out by saying thank you to my contributor for dedicating time and energy to do this for me. I feel your pride in this one. I like your twist on the “assignment” and so I’m keeping it as is. Without further delay I invite you on my tour with Unknown Black Male (check him out, because he’s funny, witty, and I luv him!). You’ve sold me on this one and one day you’ll be referred to as Known Black Male! Enjoy everyone.
Hello loves, this week I give you the lovely and very sweet Tracita of Globetracer. You know the drill, if you’ve never been to the blog, check her out. Have I ever led you astray? As always I have to give my thank you to Tracita for taking the time to do this for me and for you guys to discover something new to do should you travel to her neck of the woods. Enjoy and leave a comment or two. Continue reading

From your description and the above picture, I’ll definitely make it out there this summer. Everyone, the lovely Ayanna and also check out her blog aMg. Continue reading
By now you should all be familiar with the lovely Goddess Intellect. She’s first up in the ‘Coming From Where I’m From’ blog feature series. I’ve asked Goddess along with a few other blog friends to share what it is about their city that makes their hearts swell with pride. It can be an event or a special spot where you hang with friends to party or a spot where you go for some self inflicted solitude. As a person who loves to travel and is looking forward to more travel as the years go by, it never hurts to know which cities to hit and which events are a must! Enjoy! I give you G.I.

Short and simple. I’m currently reading a book entitled “It’s All About The Moon When The Sun Ain’t Shining“, written by Ernest Hill. I read a few chapters last night before turning in and as I read a quote from the main character’s mama stood out to me. I began to question whether it was true.
“Like they say,” Mama said. “You know the parents…you know the child.”
This was the character Maurice’s mother, trying to explain to him that the young woman he refers to as his fiancée is just not good enough for him.

Sound off! What are you thoughts on that quote? Agree or disagree? Talk to me!

Today my thoughts stirred and I was inspired to write as I laid on my bed staring up at a dream catcher I made with clients at my previous job. Continue reading
My post today was brought to you by the letter S for status. So I was perusing Facebook and noticed my cousin’s status. She recently had a baby and during the pregnancy, like many other women, she retained water and had to remove her wedding ring. So I started thinking… Continue reading
