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.

Congratulations, Serena: It’s A Girl!

I’d originally considered re-blogging a post containing some lovely nature photographs today, but this bit of news that I happened across is worth reporting! Tennis superstar Serena Williams and her partner / fiancรฉ, Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian, welcomed a baby girl into the world on 1 September. From BBC News:

Tennis star Serena Williams has given birth to a baby girl at a clinic in Florida.

Williams, 35, whose partner is Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian, was admitted to the St Mary’s Medical Center in West Palm Beach on Wednesday. The 23-time Grand Slam winner said last month she was planning to return to tennis for the Australian Open in January.

Congratulations have been pouring in from sports stars and celebrities. News of the birth came as her sister Venus prepared to go out on court at the US Open.

“Obviously I’m super-excited,” Venus said. “Words can’t describe it.” The couple are yet to confirm the birth themselves but Serena’s coach, Patrick Mouratoglou, tweeted: “I am so happy for you and I feel your emotion.”

He added: “Btw … I wish you a speedy recovery… we have a lot of work ahead of us.” Serena admitted she had revealed her pregnancy to the world in April by accident, after mistakenly uploading a photograph on Snapchat. She won the Australian Open title this January while newly pregnant, and in an article in Vogue last month she said she wanted to defend her title.

“It’s the most outrageous plan,” she said. “I just want to put that out there. That’s, like, three months after I give birth.” In June she appeared in a nude cover photo for Vanity Fair, saying: “I don’t know what to do with a baby.” The news has delighted the tennis world, with Rafa Nadal among the first to tweet his congratulations.

Congratulations to Serena and Alexis – all the best to you and your new little one! Blessed be.
