Always appreciative of the love, time and good vibes. Tim shared this with me on my Facebook page from a sketch he did in 1987, the year of my solo debut. This is an upside of social media.
“If I didn’t define myself for myself, I would be crunched into other people’s fantasies for me and eaten alive.” – Audre Lourde
That quote is very me!

Good morning (afternoon) Happy National Coffee Day. This is me a couple of years ago in Brazil enjoying a Brazilian coffee – these days I enjoy a hot cup in the morning with cashew or almond milk – no sugar. I also love green tea.
Have a great weekend and thanks for visiting my website and blog.
Society gets people so messed up in many ways, especially now with the flip side of the positives that can come from social media and the media in general.
Not that I’m a shamen in any way – but sometimes it’s good to know we can all in some way potentially inspire another human being in a positive way. Don’t compare yourself to anyone- love yourself. Many will doubt you – just don’t let the doubter be “you” and don’t try to live someone else’s life.
This is what I shared on my platforms today.
“Be who you are- but know that it will change as you grow through life, don’t be afraid of that – your essence should always remain though no matter the changes of styles, age, and era.I always see “me” – always see “you” –No matter what your profession there will always be forces to try to move you away from you – hold on to yourself.” – Jody Watley – Wattage ⚡️
