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

Is It Friday Yet?

Dammit, my week is busy.

Work is busy. Outside opportunities keeps my phone a ringing. Siblings need assistance and Mommy called me like 4 times so far this week. There was a death in the family and the way young folk doing things regarding that are irking the elders. I had to tell mother dear to take two steps back because all of the cousins (her kids and her sibs kids) minus a teenage boy are all very grown and can handle theirs. I think they still think this is the eighties or something coming into our own as adults. That was thirty years ago. Damn near.

Damn. We done got old, burying our kids and thangs.

Life gets better, it really does.

And life does get better.

Strength, prayers and well wishes to your family in this very trying time.

And yes indeed it is Friday!
