My son's Black Life Matters



 My son's Black Life Matters. There are people out there who will see Jacob less than even now at 8. One day my beautiful and bright son will be a big man at 6'4 to 6'6. Jacob is on the autistic spectrum; There have been numerous instances where black autistic adults have had dangerous and sometimes deadly encounters with the police. As his mom, I worry about that. I wish I didn't have to. That is the reality now. You who are reading this, may not have that concern, just know you are lucky. If you are a parent of a special needs child who is Black, Latinx, Native , Asian, you face this along with me. I wanted to share my voice with all the voices that are speaking out. BlackLivesMatter. We say this because for racist people it doesn't! When they are in positions of power, it threatens Black lives in every aspect of their lives.  It also threatens the lives of other people of color as well. Yes, Every life is special! Only if people really lived that belief but they don't! Stay safe, out there my friends. Be well. Speak up. Use your voice. Call out racism when you see it. Don't be quiet. One day, you may save a life or lives by standing up.  If you are offended by my words, you are free to unfollow me.

Creative Notebooks: Part Trois








Happy Thursday, my friends. Sharing with all of you, my new creative journal! I love making these composition notebooks for myself. Make them pretty and unique to me. Fill them with all my wild, creative and intuitive ideas for my whole life. It is also a different kind of journaling. It a great way to keep all my creative ideas together. I love going back to look at old ideas I had.


     

My process is very in the moment. I pulled these images that spoke to me. This is lovely but I felt it didn't have enough of me. I needed more of my "Shellness".




I put in one of my favorite pictures of me as a little girl. To honor that part of me that still is alive and watching what I do as an adult. I put in two other quotes and then put a picture of my father on it too. I still do ongoing work to heal things between my father and me. Though a person dies, it doesn't stop the relationship. I love my father. I wish I had known him better.


I already have been writing ideas down. With this creative upswing in my life, despite the uncertain times, I am excited about my future. All that the great and wondrous manifestations that are coming in my life. Do you keep a creative journal? Please share in the comments, I love to know.

My first ever podcast interview!


Happy Friday, my friends. Guess what? I was interviewed the first time ever for a podcast at The Vibe Rise podcast. If you like to take a listen, please go here. My episode is #19!!  Talking about how I use my intuition everyday and how it was to grow up being intuitive.  I was all butterflies in my stomach before the interview, once I started talking I became relaxed.



Since 2020 started for me, my intuitive business has taken off in a great way which makes me happy. Using my intuitive gifts is part of my journey. I always love helping people. I also do my weekly instagram live at 8pm est on Friday. Which is tonight. So if you want to come and join me, I love to see you there. The readings are free. I have to say get there early to get a reading. I go for about two hours. Have a great Friday, my friends

The Empire Strikes Back 40th Anniversary!

Happy Thursday, my friends. Today is the 40th Anniversary of my favorite Star Wars film: The Empire Strikes Back.  It still is my favorite of the Skywalker Saga; also,one of my favorite films of all time. I have seen Empire endless times. I can pretty much quote the film line by line by heart.




 The Empire Strikes Back is still one of the few sequels that is better than the original.It has a grittiness that makes it realistic to me than many of the other films in the saga. Everyone loses in the movie! If you don't believe me, go back and watch the film.

                            



At 11, that was a great lesson to me. And still is. You will fall, you will mess up, truths will be told to you that is painful, you may lose all that you loved, there is always hope. That last scene in Empire with Luke and Leia looking as Lando and Chewie fly away to find Han gives you a feeling somehow it will all work out. Thankfully it does. The Empire Strikes Back shows that you can learn from your losses and win even bigger than you thought possible. You can gain wisdom and somehow find your place in the universe. All of that happens in The Return of the Jedi. Whenever things got challenging for me or I needed inspiration, I could always count on Luke, Yoda, Vader, Leia, Chewie, Han, Lando, Artoo and Threepio to help me through. I am sure they always will. 
                                   




Here is a little gem for all of you with a recent interview with Mark Hamill about The Empire Strikes Back. There are things here that I didn't know about. I thought I knew a lot about the filming!



There are numerous great moments in The Empire Strikes Back. This is to me one of the best. Yoda's wisdom shines bright all these decades later. Shout out to Mark Hamill, who did such great acting that you forget that Yoda is a puppet! Enjoy. And say it with me: May The Force Be With You Always!!
