Dr. Maya Angelou (née Marguerite Ann Johnson): 4 April 1928 – 28 May 2014

I literally shed tears when I saw the news…Dr. Maya Angelou – author, poet, songstress, honored recipient of multiple awards, and renowned “Global Renaissance Woman” – passed away on 28 May, at the age of 86. She died in her sleep at her home in Winston-Salem, North Carolina.

Words still can’t convey the sadness I feel, even after watching re-airings of some of her many interviews – part of that sadness is due to the fact that I hoped to meet her and have her read my book. At the same time, I know that I should honor and celebrate the fantastic, rich, full life that she led. I feel blessed that I had the privilege to read her writings and glean some life-altering lessons from them. My most important personal motto, “Everything in moderation –…

Midweek Music; Week-Long Celebration

The birthday celebration continues! The tour of the Bridgeport Brew Pub was a lot of fun. It was great to know that a business I support is well-worth supporting, and not just because they craft some of the best ales around. Sustainability, along with “reduce, re-use, recycle,” is a daily operation in the company and I got to see it first-hand.

The food was excellent, as were the accompanying drinks. The “Bridge Sampler” is highly recommended by yours truly.

Heading out to see a movie today. Take a guess at which one I’m going to see.

Enjoy the pictures and the music.

Here is a wonderful collection of images I found while combing the corners of cyberspace for inspiration. I thought that I’d share them with others who will appreciate them.

You’re welcome.

Midweek Music: Nina Simone

Today marks the birth anniversary of the late, great, talented and beautiful Nina Simone. She was born on this day in 1933 and passed away on 21 April 2003. She would have celebrated her 85th birthday today.

Also called “the High Priestess of Soul,” she was a singer, songwriter, pianist, arranger, and a prominent figure in the Civil Rights Movement. Nina’s broad range of musical styles and influences included classical, jazz, blues, folk, R&B, gospel, and pop.

Her words from her autobiography, I Put a Spell on You, continue to inspire me. She wasn’t an artist who could be easily classified or pigeonholed, either.

Enjoy the musical selection.

Movie Time

This movie has been on my must-see list since I first heard about it. It will be in theatres soon. Can’t wait to see it!

I’m sure to get a few new, excellent ideas for cosplay items. Comic-Con 2020 is one goal of many that I’m working on.

I Love My Locs!

(Image found on Pinterest)

I’ve been caring for my natural dreadlocks for two years. They were down to the small of my back!

I went in the other day to have them professionally tended and touched up by a hairstylist, who was referred by a lovely young mother who was visiting the area with her husband and two small children. Five inches of hair was trimmed off, so now my ‘locs are just past my scapulae. No worries, though. By this time next year, they just might be long enough to touch the top of my butt.

That, to me, is the definition of “good” hair. If it is on your head and grows well with good care, then you have “good” hair!

It always feels good to get pampered – I recommend a “beauty” day once in a while. Yes, men, this applies to you all as well.
