Kobe and I are were heading to Tab’s when he points out the window shouting about a shooting star. First of all it is early afternoon, there are no stars out. I look where he is pointing and my heart began to pound. What is that! I fumble with the radio trying to check to see if there is any breaking news. I pull over and try to call Maurice. Oooooh! Why can’t he answer the phone when I need him. Is it a missile? Wait, it’s going up not down. What on earth! I call Maurice again, nothing. Why are all these people just sitting around pointing at it? Don’t they know we could be under some attack? I call Maurice again, he answers. “Where have you been!” He proceeds to tell me how he was outside watching the rocket launch and did not hear his cell. Oooooooooooooooooooh. The rocket, right. ok Yeah, the rocket. It seems I was the only one in Tampa who didn’t know about the scheduled launch. Here is a pic, what would you have thought?
The History of Us

I wrote a story prompted by my writing group. It's about church, community and racism. Since I published it on my blog I have had so many people reach out with the same shared experience. It's been comforting. Then I found out there is a whole movement of people sharing their stories of leaving church spaces that refuse to respond to racism and injustice. Thank you @thewitnessbcc.

Too close? Just making sure ya'll see these curls. Had my favorite curly girl expert @torrensalicia cut the back of my hair (looser curl pattern) even with the tightly coiled girls at the top. Love the shape that was created. Ima release the desire of length for a fuller style. #curlygirlmethod #natural #innersence
Do not fear. Do not look at the seen but that unseen. Keep your eyes on things above. What is happening in the earth realm is not the end of the story. #kingdomminded #hopeishere #ihearthesoundofvictory #drybonesrattling #elevation
