“you tell me to quiet down cause
my opinions make me less beautiful
but i was not made with a fire in my belly
so i could be put out
i was not made with a lightness on my tongue
so i could be easy to swallow
i was made heavy
half blade and half silk
difficult to forget
and not easy for the mind to follow.”
Dope Thoughts and Words
I started 2020 with a forgotten optimism. Never being one to do resolutions, I created a digital vision board. I was moved to a new state for the first time in 25 years. Then the plague hit. My husband lost his job, our children were struggling as digital learners, and I was struggling with depression. 2021, I want to regain that optimism that I am known for. I want claim my label as a writer, and be productive.
2021 I will mostly write about popular culture in my own unique way. At 48 (yes, I said it) I am still very much the hip hop head, so I will cover hip hop, movies, books, and current events that effect my community. So I hope that you are here for ride and contribute by commenting and even sharing my blog if you are moved to do so. One love, move forward, and never forget your past.
This year in my blog I will be focusing on understanding humanity. The biological, neurological, psychological, historical, and everyday aspects of what makes us human. I am particularly intrested in our propensity toward subjugation and hate.
The focus of my blog will be on legacy wealth creation. As a mother and grandmother, the focus on legacy wealth is inevitable. I am a Christian, an active duty Naval Officer, health coach, commercial real estate investor, financial literacy educator, and legacy wealth planner. From my perspective, the manifestation of wealth extends beyond the financial realm; it is the culmination of spiritual, emotional, physical, and financial abundance that allows you to live a life that is much greater than self. I will use my knowledge and experience to provide information that will help set you, your children, and your children’s children on a course that will have an impact for generations to come.
In 2021, let’s embark on a journey to get ourselves and our families in order.
“A good man leaves an inheritance to his children’s children.” Proverbs 13:22

Listen a year into the pandemic, maybe the last thing you might want to read is something digital related. I get it, but I meet parents everyday who are struggling with raising children with a healthy relationship with their digital devices. Over the next few weeks I am going to share some tips to keep your preteens and teens safe online.
Once the object of hate has been successfully dehumanized the violence delivered upon them is excused and justifications for why they deserved it are generated no matter how insignificant the transgression. Things get worse when entire groups of people are dehumanized (they are not like us), homogenized (they are all the same), and demonized (they are a threat). They become recognized only as the ultimate evil and receive no compassion or empathy.
Healing from traumatic experiences is a vital process that if left unaddressed, will have generational impact. You must be aware of whether or not your legacy will be generational blessings or generational curses.
