I refamiliarized myself with the indomitable Sonia Sanchez last night at a wonderful event put on by the @theluminal in the most amazing community garden space in ALL of Bedstuy, Hancock Community Backyard Garden Park. Indeed, Ms. Sanchez was #BaddDDD and if you didn't know this, this documentary will certainly show you why...🙅🏽✊🏾🙅🏽

@bleggett07 prob gon wanna kill me but here's a #throwbackthursday #tbt from 2009.
These 2 in the photo could possibly win a "most damaged people in the US" award. This is actually the ONLY picture we have together from that time. We had been exclusively not calling ourselves exclusive for 6 months. On that "my fb still say single" tip. We call this time in our relationship "before love" (before the big break up of 2009 and reconstruction of 2010). We were a hot mess. No one thought we would last. Ask around.
I didn't tell anyone he was anything more than a friend. I had just got out of an emotionally abusive relationship. He had a past of one of the darkest most abusive relationships I've ever seen a man endure. Like, straight sociopathic stuff.
So we hurt each other. Because hurt people hurt people. We broke up and got back together. Often. (So much so that one time when I broke up with him and he said "no - we aren't breaking up. I'll talk to you tomorrow" and hung up on me.) We lied to each other. And honestly - I doubt anyone that knew us back then expected us to last. If they even knew we were a thing.
I wanted to leave you back then, bae. Being in a relationship is hard. It's messy. It required me being honest about things I didn't want to be honest about.

So you left me - and I didn't stop you. I didn't answer my phone. I let us go because love sounds good but it also sounds messy. It sounds painful. It sounds like too much. It sounds like something for two undamaged people who's hearts fit together like a smooth puzzle piece instead of for two damaged people with hearts left with jagged edges from the parts others ripped away and ran off with yelling "na na na boo boo". But somehow, our jacked up hearts fit together. They fit so perfectly even we couldn't pull them apart. So you chased me down. And I told you things about me I hadn't even admitted to myself. And you told me it was ok. I was ok. We were ok. I saw your soul and it was beautiful. It IS beautiful. I wanted to hold on to every second we had together. I still do. I graduated with a BS in chemistry a semester early because.... (cont. in comments)

#TBT - Indigenous Native of America
In the book, They Came Before Columbus, we see clearly the unmistakable face and handprint of black Africans in pre-Columbian America, and their overwhelming impact on the civilizations they encountered.

In this season...I hear you GOD!!! 🙌🏾🙏🏾✨ #priorities

"How do you have time to do it all?" I don't. I make time. I had just finished bathing LB when I grabbed my iPad and tuned into a webinar training that I missed Saturday when he had a blowout in his bed. I set it up by the tub and listened - punching in notes here and there - while I answered 1001 toddler questions.
I think of all the moms who leave to go work a second job to make extra income. And I feel like this is a small sacrifice compared to that. Add to that the changes I've had in my health, appearance and mindset? Don't get me wrong - I've worked hard. But I've also earned so much.
There's always time to improve your life. There's always a way to make exta money. Ask me how!

Big up the shiny forehead crew! 😂
It's quite hard to believe that we haven't actually known @heyisthatme for a full 365 days, it seems like so much more! Yesterday was a day that was testament to the sometimes fabulousness of these squares on your phone and meeting people #IRL. Non-stop belly laughs while actually getting work done and not feeling guilty for not doing laundry, dishes et al which can be one of the downsides of working for yourself at home. Roll on the next @librarylondon work day! #workthatworks #freelancelife #workinglunch #instafriends #workingmumlife

Repost accidentally deleted: Super busy today so I am posting a lot earlier than normal. Here is a WIP of a current digital piece. Digital has been really fun lately as I have been taking my watercolour colour concepts and applying it and its really working. Hope to finish this in the next few days. Really likeit so far want a cool quote for her unbossed look, suggestions welcome.
Fyi reminder my competition is now closed thank you to all those who entered 😙 will be announcing the winners in a few days

I ordered this book earlier this year but i put it down to focus on work. Best believe I will finish it and I will tune in for this show. My friends know I don't watch tv except for #gameofthrones. I'm so excited about this I feel like if I could bring one person back it would be her, pure hustle, a #blackmother and #blackbusinesswoman the only one of her siblings NOT born a #slave who meant come hell or high water her baby girl would have a better life. @thegoodwifebeauty is what I do with my hands @kinky_university is what I do with my mind. This woman was the blue print there are too many stylist who don't sell retail and educate their clients which is why so many are frustrated and also why people think what we do is easy, because you make it look that way. #madamcjwalker was ahead of her time and she had way more obstacles than we face today. Seeing the post about #lebronjames and #octaviaspencer gave me life today!
