Version 2.0

Culture, healing, politics and bullshit - Not necessarily in that order

The general, socio-political and very personal rantings and ravings of a hip hop head from the hood hustling for change... Of himself.

You all know me and are aware that I am unable to remain silent. At times to be silent is to lie. For silence can be interpreted as acquiescence.
—Miguel de Unamuno

Kuumba

Creativity makes use of our creative energies to build and maintain a strong and vibrant community.



I didn't get the days mixed up. I wondered with all that have stopped by if someone would notice. I'm finishing my posts on Saturday and then taking a break afterwards. Right now, Ujamaa is my life. I live, work, plan and study to properly make use of myself and become an asset rather than a liability. I felt no need to expound on Ujamaa at this point, it seems that the tie ins with the other principles are self explanatory. Sorry, but in order to keep structure in my life, one must shuffle other things. So I skipped a day to finish up on Saturday.

It seems with 2006 approaching, everyone has resolutions. I have plans and goals, they continue over time, so they're not resolutions. The one thing I will resolve is this: It will get accomplished. For those that know me or have been stopping by, you might know what it is. One thing, after mending fences and being with family and friends that I haven't seen and been with in a while, I still might go this path alone.

I think it might be time for me to look at other places to set up shop and call home instead of Chicago. I don't know yet. I had my heart on moving back to the Chi and setting up my non profit and sharing time with others, but I might best be served by being somewhere else.

In order to make use of your creative energies to be an asset, one must not be seen as a liability.

It's nothing that you did.

Me going thru these principles make me asess reasess. I get indication on what I have to focus on. I see that I still need to focus on building me right now. With all that has and is happening gives me indication where I need to be in life and location.

I never look at anything as a mistake, but a learning experience. I am learning a lot about myself right now, and I'm sure I'll continue to learn. Once I finish my business plan I will decide if Chicago is the place for me and my future plans.
