Gangsta Grannies!

When I was in CUBA I was taken aback by how gracefully the women aged. I mean, this ladies would be 80 years old, smokin' a fat cigar (and I do not condone smoking) and cuttin' the meaning salsa move you have ever seen. during that trip I decided that I was just going to continue to get better with time. I would become more confident, less fearful and make a conscious decision to live as much life as could in whatever time I was given on this planet. I don't want to go out all diseased and decrepit. I want to dance my way out of here, ya dig? Anyhow, the faces of these women look as if they have lived some life and they ain't done, no time soon. Get it granny!

Man, when I came across this talk that Dr. Mae Jemison, (physician/dancer/astronaut) recently gave at a TED event, I was like "Yes, this is what I've been trying to say, for so long". All my life I've been trying to juggle my love and passion for the arts and sciences. Walking the tight rope that is my corpus callosum (the bridge between the left and right brain), feeling like this artsy nerdy freak of nature. But thanks to Dr. Mae, my anxiety can begin to dissipate. I can be artist and scientist! Singer and healer...thinker and creator, because creativity is a divine gift, it is all one in the same. My favorite quote from this talk is "I like to think of ideas as potential energy. They're really wonderful, but nothing will happen until we risk putting them into action".
You betta preach a work Mae, you betta preach a word!!!

P.S. Thanks to the blog: blankbareclean, for sharing this link

Sometimes you need a little help getting moving in the morning! For a quick solution, try a little Joy Jones with some James Brown. It's good for whatever ails you and without that nasty after taste. no preservatives, no artificial color...and most importantly, no corn syrup (because you know what they say about corn syrup, right?!). Anywho, where ever you may be on this fine morning...A good morning to you! Have FAB day!
