“Shorty just text me, say she wanna sex me LOL :-)” A couple of words from the Trey Songz hit titled “LOL Smiley Face”. Even though that song is a couple of years, it signified the change in our culture. We went from using our cell phones and telephones as a way to talk to people we care about and loved to not using telephones at all and only using cell phones to send quick messages such as text messages. It’s even gotten to the point where we use abbreviations to make the message even quicker. Lol, brb, imo, wyd, etc… these are all examples of letter phrases used in the place of words to make sending the message easier for the user. And now with all mobile phone carriers allowing unlimited text as part of their plans, it doesn’t look like we will ever go back to the days of dialing numbers to speak to friends and families.

Yes I will admit, (more…)

Love is one of the most powerful things to encompass this Earth. People search hell and high waters to find their true love. People work job after job until they find the career they love. People go to school for decades to learn information about a subject they are passionate about or love. True love can give you a feeling of utopia almost unmatched in this world of ours.

Everybody wants, yearns and will give or do just about anything in this world to achieve true love. But the problem is most people don’t understand when to love and to when to let go. Shoot most people don’t even know how to love to begin with. And maybe that’s the biggest problem, who teaches people how to love? How do you know when you are receiving the right love? How do you know if the love you are giving to other people is the right kind of love? (more…)

 

I want to apologize to everyone, I have been quite busy doing a bunch of things in my professional as well as personal life.  I still have deep thoughts and debates with anyone willing to listen, so my mind is always working.  As I mentioned I have been busy professionally, started a new job last week; been in training this week. The training this week is actually the reason for this post.  The training I was in consists of gang intervention, but it has been more than that for me.  There was a section speaking on deaths, funerals, and vigils.  This segment really caught my attention, and got my thoughts flowing again. Essentially it was a conversation about the celebration of life, as oppose to the grievance of death.  The celebration of life really clicked to me, and how people tend to view funerals.  Most view the wake, the funeral, the burial as a sad time… Rightfully so, a love one was lost.  Very rarely do people view death as a “celebration.”  Ironically my co writer happen to write a post about time.  After reading his post (Can I Have Some More Please) it just added fuel to the fire, felt I could share my thoughts about a few things.

Leave the LUGGAGE at the Gate

For those of you who have been on a flight, bus, or even train; where luggage is needed, one of the main prompts is “one carry-on item only.”  The rest are normally tucked away somewhere and you pray that everything comes out good.  You take your one bag, the one that normals has something you know you can’t let be out of your sight. Why? Not because it’s belongings are valuable to thieves, but it’s valuable to YOU.   After you get done with your travel, the first thing you do, is beat everybody to pick up the rest of your luggage.  Somethings you just can’t be with out, it’s YOUR safety net.  You brought things with you that you felt were needed to keep your life running smoothly.  Sounds good right? Then there’s that friend who packed entirely too much nonsense, wild bags full of nothingness and no room for anything.  As a friend your laughing, warning that person, ” you know your over packing?” but of course they don’t hear you.  The non listener gets to the gate and boom, there is no more space left.  The person is stuck with the thought of leaving something behind.   Leaving something behind?… really?… The interesting thing is life works in that same way.  As a people we tend to carry excess luggage with us into every situation, causing different thought patterns to take over subconsciously.

So me and my ace boon coon were rapping the other day and he brought up an interesting point. He asked me how I felt about gay marriages and I told him, “Nawwwwww dawg I ain’t feelin’ it, I just don’t believe in it.” After that, he told me his viewpoint about gay marriages and then we were on to the next topic of discussion. After we went about our separate business, I saw an ad of two men that were lovers that said, “We use protection, get protected” and that made our discussion jump right back into the forefront of my mind. It must have been a sign for me to discuss the topic especially at a time when legislatures are trying to pass laws across all of the states to legalize gay marriages, so here we are. …KEEP READING!

 

So seeing that it’s not only Black History Month, but the month Cupid flies around with his chubby cakes and shoots people with love arrows, I figured we venture to the left and give an uplifting post of black love. Below is a quote from one of the late great men of the African American race, Marcus Garvey.

A happy but miserable state in which man finds himself from time to time; sometimes he believes he is happy by loving, then suddenly he finds how miserable he is.  It is all joy, it sweetens life, but it does not last.  It comes and goes, but when it is active, there is no greater virtue, because it makes one supremely happy.” – Marcus Garvey …KEEP READING!
