How did I fall upon this? I was reading a blog called Black Women in Europe, which is a fine blog, just 15 minutes ago. I felt it was necessary for me to read this because I am designing the blueprint for my lifestyle. Anything that can help me unveil my strengths is welcome. After all, the title was "What the Strongest and Happiest Women do Differently". I interpreted that as how to maintain an abundant lifestyle while being resilient and joyous. To me, that sounds like a benediction. Alleluia!

According to Your Standard

Just a few minutes ago, I decided to Google sexually liberated women. The writer of another blog referenced a British poll that stated that 90% of British women think that 'women have one-night stands are desperate, mannish and even more severe, immoral.' ( I use this statistic because an American one was momentarily unreachable.) I can understand desperate but immoral? Let's not play God, people.I believe that an individual's lifestyle can be only evaluated according to their standards. That was my first disturbance. What I found the saddest is that there is a low visibility of publications that celebrate sexual liberation of women.(Unless you consider Cosmopolitan or Glamour to be viable sources.) Is there no deliverance? It is truly a case of damned if you do, damned if you don't. For me, I believe that I have enough attractiveness to stay away from unworthy men and enough sense to decipher between a worthwhile man and a cheap bastard. I also feel that behaving in a masculine fashion can get a woman in a difficult place to get out from. In no period of my life so far have I ever felt the desire to be a member of the opposite sex. Sure, I occasionally resent the freedoms men seem to preserve as birthrights but do I want to be a man. NO!! I love men immensely but it would be grotesque for me to act like one.

Ladies and gentlemen, what are your thoughts in these matters?

Thieves at the Post Office!!!

Every day ( almost) comes a new and temporary frustration.

Last night, as I was checking my mail, I discovered an unpleasant message from the postmaster. It said, " The parcel you have sent to the intended recipient has now been lost."


I read further. ( with shocked and dismayed expression)

It continued, " We have listed the address of the recipient so that we may quicker locate the contents of your lost parcel."

To add insult to injury, someone at the post office saw fit to rip off the top cover of the envelope with both of our addresses written on it and put that ripped-off cover in the envelope to send it to me!!!! Unbelievable !!!

I already know what happened. Some way or another, the package got ripped, whether involuntarily or voluntarily. Someone opened the ripped parcel and took the contents which were fascinating paperback novels. Have you noticed the Post Office largely has women working in the indoors office?

This is a disgrace!

I am finished.

Thank you for reading.

Purpose of Art

"The purpose of art is to illuminate us to possibilities not previously considered."~ Khalia

Making love. Painting. Writing. These actions are practiced by nearly all humans at some point of life. However, very few can do any of them superbly. The halves of the great majority either fail or don't attempt. Ask yourself, " Where do I fall?"

Forget Yourself. Remember Love

This journal is a collage of my mind, spirit and imagination. As currently a college student, I am on the path of self-discovery and knowledge. May wisdom and clarity be granted from it.

A Year of Fruitfulness

Henry Miller, a writer ( and one of the few sages of the literary world) who channeled Tropic of Cancer, wrote sometime in his wildly glorious life, "Develop interest in life as you see it; people, things, literature, music-the world is so rich, simply throbbing with rich pleasures, beautiful souls and interesting people. Forget yourself."

Book determined*: The Tropic of Cancer by Henry Miller stands as an epochal work for erotic literature. From what I have gathered from the reviews, many writers owe a debt to this maestro of candor.
* this means I have yet to savor the piece.

News Delight!

On Thursday, April 15th, I will be in the audience of the great Caetano Veloso of Brasil at the Greek Theatre in Los Feliz. I absolutely love that venue except one trait : they make you leave early. A concert at the Greek doesn't last past ten or eleven o'clock p.m. The whole place could get damned if someone rebelled and stayed on till twelve. So, if you want to be assured of an early bird service, you go to the Greek. For Caetano, I will!
