Looking back at my life coming up as a young woman, I had no thought as to who or what I was supposed to be. My parents had ambition for me, I had none. All I wanted to do  was read books and be comfortable doing so. Reading was and still is my favorite thing to do. Life, however, had other plans for me, and a lot of emotional challenges would be the name of the train I would ride. In hindsight, as I type listening to Lana del Rey this Sunday morning in Nigeria, it was as if I…

Last night as I slept I found myself in the presence of an entity who sat by my bedside. I knew that I was in the world of dreams and visions, because I felt myself watching myself, studying this being, who seem to startle my spirit with his uninvited presence. I saw myself staring at him from my position on the bed, wondering who he was, what he was. As I curiously watched from wherever I was (this happens in all my dreams, I observe myself having the experiences and wondering what happens next. In my dreams there are always…

Good day to you folks and blessings of the Universe and of God to you all! I do not know how exactly to write this post today, because I have so much to say and the topic is very touching for me. It is very hard as an awakened person to see so many people suffer and know how to remove their suffering but cannot say anything, because they would not listen to you but rather condemn you. Allow me to tell you some very personal things. I may over share but who the hell cares! (more…)

One of Bob Marley’s many songs is titled “So much trouble in the world”, and this is so true. There is so much trouble in the world, but when children are affected by all the happenings which the world delivers, it is just the worst thing, as parents or even human beings with feelings how do we protect children, how do we free them from pain and suffering, from being bullied, or abused, or even from their own minds?, How do we?. I thank God for all my healthy children, but I was born with empathy and often times I…

Good morning, today I found this article on the much hated Judas Iscariot. I began to read it and impulsively decided to post it. Poor Judas get a raw deal, and it was not his fault, God did choose him to relieve Jesus of his clothes, (no gay ting, meaning physical body). We here on this blog site, have not been to church in a long time, and I have been having an urge to dig up one my old church hats buried under my cellar, as ugly as it may be and putting it on and sitting in the…

Good day to you all. Our blogger and friend Ty has written the post for today and it is a touching one, but one which needs attention nevertheless. As a child growing up in Jamaica, I would sometimes hear my mother make reference to someone at times, like, “Poor Doris gone senile”, or other references would be made by people, of older folks who had lost their memory as being senile , they no longer recognized any one. I have no idea if being senile or having Dementia is the same, but I now know through this post, that Dementia…

Tonight for our book club discussion we have a very heavy topic to deal with, and for all week we have been dealing with topics which were very deep also. Today I will go light or perhaps try to. I will not write too much on this topic, but with what little I will write today, I ask for all participants in the days discussion to tell their own feelings or thoughts upon the titled topic, Forgiveness. Have you done it, can you do it, what is forgiveness to you? (more…)
