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

Mom's cooking chicken and collard greens... Rice and stuffing, macaroni and cheese... And Santa putting gifts under Christmas trees

Things never actually go the way you plan. I wish... I had... More time.

Things didn't go as planned for me this Christmas... but I ain't mad.

I am thankful for what did go right, whatever that was. The Creator knows, we talked about it.

It didn't kill me, it just made me stronger because I'm still here celebrating in the spirit.

For that I rejoice, it is why we designate today as today.

For those 3 people that stop by and read me on the regular, Merry Christmas, enjoy this day and thanks for stopping by. I am humbled, flattered and honored that you point your browser in my direction.

For those that read me because we no longer speak or congregate for whatever reason... I wish you happy in the name of the Most High..

To my family. I pray that we'll come together soon in peace. I love you all, right now from a distance, but you know I'm here. We'll continue to dial numbers and leave all kinds of messages. It means we care about each other, right?

To those that feel pushed away by my actions and speech, continue to tune in and know me more before you decide to walk away.

For those that cooked today... remember that I'm vegeterian (and new at that!) and I'll be over to make a plate anyway. Keep that hog away from from my tupperware!

Thank you to Richard, Millie, CS, Victor, Tam, Jade, Joy, Nate, Wanda, Toya and Quincy for inviting me over, wishing me well, spending time and giving me family and food for a day, y'all know that I'm broke right now but whatever I have you always have. Anything other than $$$ for rent, utilities and groceries is yours. My time and effort is also here for you as usual. We'll never go hungry, homeless and without free nights and weekends as long as I have breath. Some of you I've only known for a short period of time, others I can't get rid of... It takes only a day to know someone, but a lifetime of action and duty to trust someone. I hope to continue to both gain and give it no matter what capacity. I have nothing without you, you are my family and I love you all.

Merry Christmas, dammit.
