Celebrating Black Music: Then & Now

The black community not only has always appreciated and produced good music, but they have brought forth many good hits with various rhythms and sounds. These tracks have carried a sense of soul and tradition from our ancestors, and have created chart toppers in funk, soul, pop, motown, gospel and numerous other genres. We haveContinue reading “Celebrating Black Music: Then & Now”

Far from Silent

June. 2nd, 2020 was dubbed ‘Black out Tuesday’ as a part of the Black lives matter movement. I posted a black out picture to support this motive, but I would like to clarify something since I haven’t posted anything since. I do not want anyone mistaking my lack of posting since June. 2nd for beingContinue reading “Far from Silent”

Self-Isolation Day 3 – 14: Sad Times

These are indeed sad times for a place I am so glad to call home.

Self Isolation Day 1 & 2: Motion Picture Comfort

My self isolation period has been reset, and I am back to square one. Unfortunately, I had to go on a supply run.

IContinue reading “Self Isolation Day 1 & 2: Motion Picture Comfort”

Self-Isolation Day 5, 6 & 7: Musical Aid

I do believe great admiration for music is genetically leaked into my blood, I can’t imagine my life without music, and not being able to hear the gift of song in various ways. I am quite lucky to be musically cultured and I have my mother to thank for that. She sang in our churchContinue reading “Self-Isolation Day 5, 6 & 7: Musical Aid”

Self-Isolation Day 5, 6 & 7: Exercising Faith, Part 2

Day after day, an empty bus drives past my house; of course this bus contains one person, that of whom is the driver. On the odd occasion, there is one other person on this bus. It’s strange.  Our schools are dark and empty, hallways eerie and barren, there are not even any children scattered aboutContinue reading “Self-Isolation Day 5, 6 & 7: Exercising Faith, Part 2”

Self Isolation Day 3 & 4: Exercising Faith, Part 1

Monday, when I had to go pick up my things from my office, I recall having a good ten minute chat with another person that works within the school. He’s an older individual in a different line of work, but we found such comfort to just talk to someone about everything that is happening inContinue reading “Self Isolation Day 3 & 4: Exercising Faith, Part 1”
