"The dress changed [Coretta Scott] King…She opened up, talking about her husband, her children, her life, politics, race, what it meant to be African American. The dress…authenticity. The portrait…represented an idea." — photographer Thomas Shillea of the 1986 portraits.

Beautiful love Mrs. King shared through the eye of media to us.

Challenges

Keep an ear open for the sounds,

Of the floods which try to overtake your over flowing heart.

Keep the beat of your calloused feet,

While walking through gravel on that lonely broke road.

Keep your head high,

As you pass the rolling eyes,

That turn its head from side to side

To calmly wish you away,

Rather than say,

Here!

Take my hand as I lead you today,

Faraway,

So many heartaches to your dismay.

This day I found glamour in the business world. I enjoy helping women grow in personal growth and business. We all know we work better together.
When there is joy there is freedom to learn and share the better side of what we live for.

Enjoying A Brighter Day just before heading out to Yum Yum’s Loving all that I take out of Life. You too can be sure that there is always plenty of life to go around, and them some more!
Live it, and Love it all in one Big Bite.

And Begin!

Mother’s who care are born with the flare for words,

To flatter and wear with a great pair of patent leather shoes.

Tempting the man in their life to kiss and play

Maybe all day.

smile.

Okay, enough.

Mother’s can tick and tack with a knack walking the Seattle 99 trail

With a snack of baked goods in their backpack.

Mmm, mmm, yum,

Give me some more,

Okay, enough.

Mother’s care because of the sons and daughters they birthed here,

Stare and glance at the chance they take with love on a plate.

Palate, okay embrace, chase and never waste it,

Enough already,

Mother’s thoughts!

Shh!

Silence are words that never reach the listener’s ears,

But the words are always being spoken.

Are you listening when they speak?

Have you silenced your ears to the words that we speak?

Open your eyes,

Look straight through hers,

Can you see her true words?

Often you say I am listening,

But when you do not understand!

When you do not respond!

When you do not care!

And only just decide to walk on while nodding your head,

What was it that you missed,

When her tears rolled down,

To fall upon her quivering lips,

As each word recklessly ran slipping from her mouth.

Silence, were the words!

That you never received from your wearied listening face.

Silence!

Listen…, or

Did you miss it again?

No, Really it Was Perfect

In a day that is made, each can hold the perfect day.

Green grass feeling itchy on my thigh as I lay across on the open field.

The sky open wide surrounded with blue, the evergreens completely surrounds me.

Black birds flying up so high, side by side as they equally land right on the branches of the tree which stands so tall directly behind me.

It is so beautiful and life breathes effortlessly, the sound of trees swaying in the cool breeze have surrounded me.

The peace with you to say you are all around me in all that I see and am a part of right now.

This is  truly a perfect day.

Young Writer Chronicles: “Young Writers Are as Talented, Creative, and Resourceful as Older Writers”

Located in Kenmore, New York, the WNY Young Writer’s Studio is an organization we much admire. They offer year-long fellowships to young writers, and provide writing workshops and day camps. In their own words, “We learn how to honor and support the writer in everyone, because writers make the world a better place.” Their fellows wrote an amazing post about how they’re learning to use their writing to improve worlds, both the one we live in, and the ones they create:

The WNY Young Writer’s Studio is a writing community in Kenmore, New York. Here, writers of all ages and their teachers explore what great writing is, how to produce it, and how to inspire others to do the same. Writers at the Studio work hard to create a space where people feel safe sharing their ideas, their works in progress, the things they are good at, and the things they struggle with, too.

At Studio, the focus isn’t on craft alone. Writers learn a lot about the values, beliefs, attitudes, and practices that help people become writers. Jumping into a piece and focusing our energies on perseverance rather than perfection is incredibly motivating, and it’s what first drew us to National Novel Writing Month!
