Red hot!

Red hot passion
Her voice heard loud
Through words, strength and curves.

Never gives up
Without a fight
Dreams birthed 'cause they push.

Inner beauty
Shines on the world
Inspired life lived.

My thanks to them
For the fire
Idols fuel in me.

Octavia Butler
Judy Blume

Queen Latifah
My mom

Make believe

614 SW 11th Ave
While co-working with a friend, I found myself staring out the window for answers rather than pen to paper. My eyes zeroed in on a message: Make Believe. Its purpose, and mine, finally clear.

The common phrase for so long had meant "to pretend". To be something that was never really possible, except for in my imagination. A princess, to fly, a faerie, to read minds, a gazillionaire...

But have you ever really listened to the words. Make Believe?

Make. To bring into existence. To produce. To cause to be or become.

Believe. Confidence in the existence of something. To be certain of. Accept as true.

To make believe is to create truth. Because your truth is your reality.

So next time you make believe, focus on something that really matters to you. 
World peace; fall in love; be a rock star; travel 'round the world on a unicorn.

Brew truth

What is your truth?

Do you speak it loud and clear? In every moment, everyday?

Maybe you stand for a cause: protect the environment; advocate for animals; equality for all. A voice displayed with tattoos, piercings, or sparkling jewels. Heels, Docs or Birkenstock. Elegant versus casual. Quiet versus animated. Feminine, masculine, somewhere in-between. Analytical and creative. Play with numbers, words, pictures or melodies. Fast-paced, tip-toe or go with the flow.

What is your truth? One, none, some, all the above...depends on the hour, the day, your age...

Face the mirror and see your truth. With every thought, word and action. There is only one of you in this world. And your voice deserves to be known. Your currency is unique. Be it smiles, a listening ear or lavish treats. Your wealth is abundant.

Your worth is priceless.

always be true to you,
