Sunday Morning Ramblings – June 23, 2019 June 23, 2019

Sunday morning, june 23rd, 9:30 in the morning.

First off – sorry about the spacing. I don’t know how to fix it yet, but hopefully I can figure it out.

Sitting here jamming to one of my all-time favorite albums, “Nick of Time” by Bonnie Raitt, singing (screeching probably). Computer room window open and I don’t even care.

Been up almost 2 hrs. Wanted to do something slightly productive, so I got up threw my garbage together and took it to the back of my building. Also threwc out a couple of things taking up space and aren’t really making me happy. No I’m not going full Marie Kondo (although she does seem very sweet); I will not be thanking my possessions.

I’ve been tackling some paperwork clutter. Yesterday I scanned some stuff into the computer. Now I’m going through some “mag pulls” – pages ripped out my many subscriptions (Essence, Oprah, Vanity Fair, Entertainment Weekly, and Woman’s Day). If I see something interesting I rip it out and put it aside, to look up more info or whatever. A lot of times, by the time I get around to going through my pile, I’ve totally forgotten why I even pulled it in the first place.

When I do remember, I look up the product, or idea, or person, then add it to my pinterest or share it on social media. Right now I have a crap ton of stuff to get through, and I don’t want to spam my twitter timeline (eh, maybe I will, anyway), but then I thought “maybe work all this into some sort of blog post?”. So let’s try that, shall we ?

Don’t worry, I’m not gonna bombard you with everything at once. ‘ll throw a few into this post, and then, hopefully, I’ll be consistent and throw a few more at you in the coming days.

Yeah, I know – consistency hasn’t been my strong point on the blogging front. I’ll try to do better.

Here are a few interesting things I found/looked up/shared:

First up, here’s an article about a young African American female entrepreneur, that I read about in the June 2019 issue of Essence, trying to make her mark on the Wellness industry:

Olde Founder Trinity Mouzon Wofford Wants To Bring Inclusivity And Accessibility To Wellness

Here we have a young woman, also noted in the June 2019 Essence issue, currently working hair into her art:

.

There was recipe for Mexican Grilled Corn, that I found in the June 2019 issue of Ophrah magazine that I wanted to pin, but it didn’t come up on the website. I’ve had that happen before: it’s in the mag but can’t be found on the site. Like, what the hell?!

Then I just did a Google search for “Mexian Grilled Corn Oprah mag” and I got it. Sort of. It came up in a different format, as part of a general list of grilled corn recipes:

Here’s the actual mag pull:

Oprah magazine, June 2019

In the same issue of Oprah magazin, I read an article about Footsteps, an organization that helps with people who decide to leave th Orthodox Jewish Community:

https://www.oprahmag.com/life/a27925298/help-leaving-orthodox-jewish-community-footsteps/

There’s lots more stuff to go through, but I don’t want this post to get ridiculously long (okay, it kinda already is, but whatev) so I’m gonna end it here. Hopefully you’ll find this stuff as interesting as I did.

I usually don’t cry on Mother’s Day …

It’s been … like, 40 years.

But I saw your picture. I mean,

really …

saw it

looked at …

examined …

searched for …

traces of me

who I could be

if you were still here.

 

I miss you …

My Current Obsession – Raul Esparza March 14, 2019

Beautiful.  Delicious.  Intoxicatingly sexy.

And, of course, super-talented.  He did this performance – with a throat infection, people!

THAT is dedication. 

I swear I get pregnant every time I watch this:

news I got today

sad and shocked, confused, first thought:

cancer really sucks!

 

EXTREME RANT–#cHARLESTONSHOOTING June 18, 2015

  

I feel like this world is telling me, telling us – don’t breathe while being black.

  
  

You’re sleeping in your own house – you get shot.

You go to the store for snacks – you get killed

You go enjoy a dip in pool – you get cursed at, gun drawn on you, flung around

    and your face smushed in the grass

You exercise your constitutionally given right to free speech – you get charged

     with resisting arrest

You don’t shuffle along fast enough you get the silver bracelets

You drive a car that’s just a little too nice – you get pulled over and assumed to be

    a car jacker.

You’re unarmed, but you panic and run (fight or flight) – you get shot.

You’re unarmed, you stand in place, you get shot

You’re driving home from your bachelor party – you get shot

You get in a car accident, you knock on someone’s door for help – you get shot

You play your music too loud – you get shot

You go to church, to pray – for peace, for justice, for healing – YOU GET FUCKING SHOT!!

  
  
  

Is this real life, right now?

  
  
  

I’m sitting here tearing up. I’m tired of this bullshit. First we were brought here for labor. Not we’re just for target practice.

  

And what will the media say about the victims? Will they pull out their bag of pre-conceived notions, sink into the muck and scrounge around for every single “misdeed” than any of these people may have done ever in their lives? Will they paint this not as a Bible study, but as some sort of agitator’s conference? “Oh, yeah. We know – them darkies just up to no good. Can’t have too many of them congregatin’ in one place

  

And what does the media say about the killer? Will they call him a poor mixed up young kid? “He’s sick. He needs our understanding”

  
  

Fuck that. He’s a goddamn racist fucking terrorist bastard.

  
  

And he’s homegrown.

  
  

My home.

  
  

The United States of America.

  
  

Land of the free. Home of the brave.

  
  

That’s such a sad fucking joke, right now.
