I Lost Two Marriages, But I Found Myself, Finally!

Ain’t it a trip?  We always go through so much as women, and as men for that matter.  I had to opportunities to do marriage, and somehow messed both chances.  Of course it wasn’t my fault only, but I’m taking responsibility for my part of it.    Two down, one to go? NOPE!!    😀…

Like Litter In The Wind by L.M. Ross ~ (Book Review)

The Souls of black folks in America are deep and complex.  Many of the talented ones burn with intensity, and with luck,  mellow down into a pure and beautiful glow.  Often it’s not until the trials and tribulations of life buffet them that they are buffed to a high gleam.  At this point their multifaceted…

James Copes,The Mayor of Oakland’s Eastmont Mall

Two Sundays ago, I decided to go out in search of a bookstore to browse.  I’m a hardcore bibliophile and was seriously jonesing for some book spine reading action, so I first went online to see what bookstores are actually left.  Ever since my beloved Stacey’s Bookstore of San Francisco closed down, and also even…

Love Never Fails Us!

About three months ago, I started attending a human trafficking training seminar hosted by Love Never Fails,  and held at Allen Temple Church.  This was an intense 8 module course that would disseminate much information on the inner workings of this wicked and fast growing industry.  Love Never Fails set up the courses to give each participant the skills and background understanding to  becoming a highly effective, sensitive and…

The Incomparable Glide Memorial Church of San Francisco

Last Sunday, Aug 26, I visited the famous Glide Memorial Church in San Francisico, CA.  This church has been a bastion of good works and is well known and loved the world over!  Yet, it’s interesting how I have never been there before in my life, especially since I was born and raised in San Francisco within a mile of…

Youtube Love Couples I Love

Have I told you all how much I love Youtube?  It is so epic!  Youtube is such a wonderful way to preserve history, and it’s great when we gather only what we need.  I don’t do the negative stuff because my mind is like flypaper and the messy stuff would get stuck in my head for a long…

John 8 – The Terror of Arguing With God

This morning, I was listening to my CD’s of James Earl Jones reading the New Testament, (an experience in and of itself) and I was struck by the dispute the Pharisees were having with Jesus.  As I listened closely, I noticed that everything the Pharisees were in dispute with Jesus with was logical.  Everything they pointed out against Jesus…

Bishop Noel Jones – I Got To Get Myself Together

  We’re in times of great change.  Everywhere we look, we see all kinds of strange things going on.  Shifts in thinking are happening on a grand scale.  Everybody looks and sounds crazy to everybody else.  Personally, I’ve never seen so many cracked pots and nut jobs, especially in the political arena. But in times like these,…

A Young Lesbian Couple I Overheard

I was parked by Lake Merritt just chilling, which is an enduring Oakland pastime.  People drive down to the Lake, find a spot to park, then just people-watch.  There also are joggers, runners and power walkers getting their exercise on.  It’s a beautiful thing – some of us are exercising, others of us are watching.  We Oaklanders go to the Lake to meditate…
