Somebody told me yesterday,
I have to acknowledge me
And celebrate myself
While highlighting my qualities
Dont be afraid to say I don’t know
How to Act, Where Im going
Or what the future holds
Its a long road to the percieved TOP
And along the way
There’s alot of potholes, detours and pitstops
Traffic Jams and vehicles broken down
So be grateful that you’re moving safe and sound
I won’t be gagged and bound,
Cause what I found
Is that your pain and problems
Can either lift you up or knock you down
So Imma stay on course
And move with the force
ACKNOWLEDGE and become one with the source
And consciously sing praises and poems till Im hoarse
As I continue to do Art, straight from the heart…
It might not be a solution, but its a good start
So RIGHT NOW, I affirm my journey begins today…
To a state of pure bliss, just by saying this…
Ashe’ Namaste

More Happy Feet! “The African penguin (Spheniscus demersus), also known as the jackass penguin and black-footed penguin, is a species of penguin, confined to southern African waters. It is also widely known as the “jackass” penguin for its donkey-like bray, although several related species of South American penguins produce the same sound. Like all extant penguins it is flightless, with a streamlined body, and wings stiffened and flattened into flippers for a marine habitat. Adults weigh on average 2.2–3.5 kg (4.9–7.7 lb) and are 60–70 cm (24–28 in) tall. It has distinctive pink patches of skin above the eyes and a black facial mask; the body upperparts are black and sharply delineated from the white underparts, which are spotted and marked with a black band. The pink gland above their eyes helps them to cope with changing temperatures. When the temperature gets hotter, the body of the African penguin sends more blood to these glands to be cooled by the air surrounding it. This then causes the gland to turn a darker shade of pink.” #UrbanEventsGlobal

TIPFUL TUESDAY WITH THEA: SOMETIMES YOU HAVE TO FLY SOLO

I have been so out of touch lately, trying to create a timeline for all of the projects I am working for 2015 and attempting to somewhat prioritize/organize my ever-changing life goals and always cluttered life.

Also, I have been trying to re-structure this blog and will be adding a vlog sometime in the near future - hence the hiatus. All this restructuring came about on my last vacation to Kaui, Hawaii, when the hubby and I had a Tamar and Vince “Cabotastrophe” (we are avid watchers). He hates having to be on social media on vacation, he hates reviewing everything, taking pictures of everything and following a pre-planned itinerary to make sure you see and do everything to later blog/vlog about it.

Wait a minute, isn’t that what traveling blogging/vlogging is? 

That’s exactly what I said. So the end of that argument went something like this…. Me - “In essence you hate blogging then” ? He agreed. In my head I was thinking “Why did you agree to start a travel blog with me then”.  But I didn’t push the issue because I just wanted to enjoy our trip. On the inside, I was irate because I thought I finally had a blogging/vlogging partner and just like that my blog was going to end although it had just begun.

No I can’t! I wasn't going out like that.

I decided to regroup once I got back to the mainland. Its been a long time coming and regrouping, but I decided I have to go at this alone. If I build it, they will come!

Some lessons were learned during that unforgettable and breathtakingly beautiful August trip…..Don’t try to force your spouse to be passionate about things you are passionate about and don’t get upset when they really don’t care about some of your hobbies the way you do. It’s okay that you don’t have to share all of the same sentiments all of the time.

I have since told my husband I will try to blog/vlog in ways that are not invasive to our vacations and only extend invitations for him to participate in this project of mine from time to time. If he declines then so be it! Sorry world he will only be joining us on occassion, but I find it works out better that way in #TravelingHappilyEverAfter

Traveling with Black Skin

I Love to travel! I first left America on my 16th birthday on a cruise trip to Ensenada, Mexico with my fam. I was hooked, I’ve since then have been to India, Dominican Republic, Panama, France, Kenya, back to Mexico(Cancun, Cabo), China, the Netherlands and Jamaica. My thoughts when I return is always.. I wish more black people traveled.. Maybe that way people won’t point, laugh and mimic my gestures when I’m in their country. Maybe people won’t want to touch my hair or sneak and take pictures of me (some people are even so bold as to ask to pose for a picture, complete strangers, whose language I don’t speak and vice versa… As if I’m some type of fucking side show. All I’m trying to do is experience different places on this Earth and I find myself constantly guilty of #TravelingWithBlackSkin. Custom officers literally interrogate me before allowing me to pass, while white families with lots of kids are asked A question and waved right through (I am in line right behind them I CAN SEE). It’s awfully annoying but it is unfortunately normal for me. When I am traveling with people of lighter skin complexions they always have to wait for me at the end of security, because of course I, and my carry on bags are extra-carefully-and THOROUGHLY checked. Once, my best friend got on with a pocket knife before, but had to wait like 20 extra minutes for me to come through security. We. Were. In. Line. Together! She is black but she has white skin, we quickly realized what that bullshit was about. Just last week while traveling with a friend from DC, shocked, she couldn’t help but notice the extra pat downs I experienced. In Panama, after we were cleared for security, a supervisor said, “Wait, do you check their hair”. In the Netherlands, I was interrogated and asked 15 different ways if I had accepted drugs from anyone while there(They also gave my seat away causing me to have a layover 7 hours longer than planned). Aside from airport security, I am often stared at with confusion and asked, in whichever accent the word, “From”? As in where are you from? I reply, “America”. Usually, I’m met with 2 reactions either disbelief(because all Americans are white, right?) or an enthusiastic smile and comparison to Barack Obama or Michael Jackson… Black Americans lol. When I visited the Taj Mahal in India, I thought I was mistaken for some celebrity! I seriously took so many photos with people.. and their children. I just wanted to express that I want each and every one of us to get out there and explore the world and be in these different spaces. The world needs to see us, in all of our blackness! Let’s travel together (: I’m gonna start arranging international group travel trips for the rest of my life!
