I Celebrate Myself…

Vida La Vida!

1 Comment

For this post I feel obligated to write something. I have only blogged two times for this month. There are times when I miss it, and then there are other times when I don’t.  However, I do know the importance of having a voice…even if no one hears it…or reads it.

What an exciting and frightening time we live in! The recession is real, but so are the possibilities. Politics is so exciting to me. I didn’t appreciate it that much in college the way I do now, even though it was one of my majors. I wish I could sit down with my favorite professor from undergrad, Dr. Emmert, and find out what he thinks of all this.  (That reminds me, he owes me an email.) 

 I am also excited about the weekend and about spending time with my nephew and my friend who just had a baby. We ( my friend and I) are going to get  mani/pedis! I am looking forward to grocery shopping. The Trader Joes at Union Square is a mad house! So, I want to get up early tomorrow and shop before the craziness begins.

Here’s to life!

By the way,  how cool is Coldplays’ new cd, Vida la Vida?!

I Have Learned So much from God That I can no longer Call Myself A Christian, a Hindu, a Muslim, A Buddhist, a Jew. The Truth has shared so much of Itself With me That I can no longer call myself A man, a woman, an angel, Or even pure Soul. Love has Befriended Hafiz so completely It has turned to ash And freed Me Of every concept and image My mind has ever known. ~ Hafiz ~

    Writing the Night Women

    Marlon James bucks the old advice, “Write what you know.” James is obsessed with history, and his new novel “The Book of Night Women” reckons with Jamaica’s brutal past. With jaw-dropping vulgarity, it debunks “the poetry of poverty” James sees in Jamaican fiction. He tells Kurt about the challenges of depicting slavery, and how to write in the voice of a woman.
