Random Ramblings; Myriad Musings

Today marks Black Love Day! Here’s a bit of info, for those who are wondering what it is and what it celebrates:

BLD is an African-centered, alternative to the commercial Valentine’s Day with the wholistic goals of encouraging: 1) Black self-love instead of self-hatred; 2) Racial healing to stop White supremacy, racism and entitlement; 3) The return to Love to heal all relationships for increased peace to stop violence!

BRIEF HISTORY: BLD was founded in 1993 by Ayo Handy Kendi, founder/director of the African American Holiday Association (AAHA), and CEO of PositivEnergyWorks. Founder of Optimum Life Breathology, Transcendence Breath Worker, Sound Healer, Speaker, Storyteller, Author, Host- “The Sage-ing Baby Boomer Show”.

Yearly, Black Love Day has grown in popularity similar to Juneteenth and Kwanzaa. It has become recognized on many college campuses, notably FAMU, Morgan State and Howard U. as well as in many communities.

Random act of kindness

With all of the worldly woes, it is refreshing to read about random acts of kindness such as these.

The Journey of My Left Foot (whilst remembering my son)

Thursday 20th October

Today I have been rendered absolutely speechless, lost for words, taken aback, by the unbelievable kindness of a friend of mine.

Having met a couple days ago in our local coffee shop, where she admired an agate necklace I was wearing, we chatted about her hobby of beading; she said she loved to make her own jewellery, including more intricate designs of beadwork

Today we met again, and as I approached the table in the coffee shop, I saw that she had laid out numerous beautiful necklaces. Made of semi-precious stones, they looked exquisite: agate, opal, turquoise, quartz, amethyst, tourmaline…….a veritable treasure trove.

I was under the impression that I was going to admire them, pick one out for myself, and pay half her ticket price. (The tickets detailed the stones used and the cost a shop or gallery would be expected to pay, followed by their…

ChinGum

We sometimes become confused after watching China and Japan. So here is the interesting list difference which proves that how both countries ( Japan and China ) are not same.

Food

China vs Japan - Differences Between The Two Countries Aka Differences Of Oriental Cultures.

In China – Peking duck, dim sum, fried rice, century egg and turtle soup

We know only five tastes. Feature of Chinese cuisine is the presence of as many as eight: in addition to sweet, sour, spicy, bitter and salty all Chinese will call you more fragrant taste (well prepared dish has a special flavor), fresh (unlike the taste of rice and bread) and gold (similar to the taste of kumquat ).

In Japan – sushi, rolls and sashimi

The main delights of Japanese cuisine are the dishes of raw fish, the most popular of them – it’s sushi and rolls. During cooking, the fish are not subjected to heat treatment to preserve its natural taste. Also in Japan…

United Nations International Day of Peace – 2016

From my Brother’s NoteBook

“Mutual respect is the foundation of genuine Harmony.”
– The Dalai Lama –

It’s sad to see the strife, discord, and hatred deliberately sown by so many…

dalailamaquote1

“The planet does not need more ‘successful’ people. The planet desperately needs more peacemakers, healers, restorers, storytellers and lovers of all kinds. It needs people to live well in their places. It needs people with moral courage willing to join the struggle to make the world habitable and humane and these qualities have little to do with ‘success’ as our culture is the set.”
-Dalai Lama
