Never Standing Alone

I’m sure you’ve read the poem Foot Prints. Where a person thought they were alone because they only saw one set of footprints in the sand. This brings to mind the concept in life where the many are one. One of our greatest attributes is unity. A concept many times over looked, but also a blessing in disguise. From unity, the core value from which we evolve stands that of family.

I can remember when I was a young boy trying to understand the things before me day to day. I would see my mother, her sister and my grandmother always getting together and talking about things and making decisions. At that time I thought it was simple; they were enjoying each other’s company. Which was true, but it was much more. They were continuing a commitment they had established long ago to always work together as one, which truly created a much stronger existence for them than a singular concept.

From this I learned, that the creation of the whole being as one is the strongest possibility to exist within the challenges in life. When we truly think about it, from this we can find the best in others and ourselves. This is also where we find our strengths that allow us to live our lives during challenge and normality. When you are living and making the right choices, you’re never alone, because: together we stand and divided we fall. 

Standing with you,



When you look at life and the process you create living it, you find that there are different shades you are confronted with and many levels you must understand.  A lot of people put great credence on the beginning and the end. But truly life should only be based on the part you live day to day.  It can start from the simplest action of being nice to the next person or being positive in your actions to the many.

Or to a great design in developing your life’s standards, that create the motion of your positive direction. These things are the fundamental structures of your life force and journey. I can remember when I first discovered this truth, I was standing with myself trying to understand my worth and direction. And I tell you now, the one thing that should be most consistent in your journey is: belief in yourself.

Believing in you, me and life,


Enjoying Summertime

Every year each of the four seasons brings its own expression and feelings, and we tend to react accordingly. In the fall we see it as an ending, yet it’s a beginning of everything once again becoming new. In the winter we experience the most change, and we react once again accordingly. In the spring we see and feel the beauty that the other seasons created. This is the magnificent rebirth of everything wonderful and new.But summer is where we actually go out, experience and enjoy the wonderment of it all. It’s just something about summer that energizes the body and soul. One of the many things that we as human beings bring to the table that exists during the summertime is the festival. We come together and experience the joy of creativity and expression.

I had the pleasure of attending with my daughter on Fathers Day, the Berkeley, Ca. Juneteenth Festival and it was really nice. I had a chance to see and visit with a lot of the great musicians I grew up admiring and learned from. Click here for more of the pictures my daughter took of the festival. So you also, keep enjoying your summer and let the love it brings, stay in your heart.

“Summertime and the living is easy”,


That Day

Can you think back on a day in which you experienced a very special event? It could be the day you got married. Or when you had your child or the day you graduated from high school or college. It could even be a wonderful vacation you went on or when you went to the casino and won a lot of money. For me it’s each time I get that special feeling in my heart and soul, called love. But the greatest thing about experiencing that day, it’s something you can, will and should keep with you through time. So I give you my day: That Day.

 Making it every day,


The Beauty In Us

To be loved and to love in return, this is a cycle we go through in our lives that is always persistent with our desires. The keyword within that statement is persistence. You must have that continuous drive to overcome the many actions, mechanisms and challenges that stand in your way sometimes.

Love is in the eye of the beholder, because no matter what the other person does or says, if your love is love, then it’s forever. It’s not based on the action of another, but created and developed by the essence of you, yourself. This is  something we sometimes forget. So embrace the love within you, but don’t confuse it to be taken advantage of. The love you have is a blessing,which is the beauty in us all.

Loving the beauty in me,



The word itself creates the thought of making something different from the way it originally was. You could be going through changes, which could be a problem, but also changes could be something good that makes your situation better. Don’t ever fight change whether it’s viewed as good or bad, because it’s a part of every moment in your life. As you live, things automatically change, so embrace it and create with the flow. The beauty in life is the changes in your life. These words may not bring about a change for you, but truly just in the act of reading and reacting, it did.

Embrace your change. 

Always changing,



One of the definitions of the word expression is: a word or group of words that communicate an idea.We often express ourselves without a moment of thought; it could be in rage or by excitement. Such as when you are mad, happy or confused and you talk to someone and say the things you are feeling, without formulating a sense of reason that would allow him or her to understand.

For instance: John I am tired of you doing that same old thing you do when I ask you not to. Does she really know what it is she is doing? It is so important to think and work out our thoughts, because we are doing it to speak our point to another person or persons.

The value given in this thought is that what you say is understood in the exact way you are giving it. What I mean is, you can say the most important expression since the beginning of time, but if whom you are saying it to doesn’t understand what you truly mean, then you really haven’t said anything. So take the time to do your best, to express your thoughts and not just your feelings.

I’m just saying,


Don’t be so Serious or Maybe you should

You know how some people tell you, that you should be able to laugh at yourself even when it makes you mad. Well my thoughts on that are when words that someone says really hurts, it’s a simple fact, that they hurt. I feel if someone wants to joke with you, then they should take heed to what your true sore points are. Because the fact of the matter is, there is always a way to adjust the things you say and be able to make the same point. It’s true one shouldn’t take every single thing serious enough for it to hurt them, but you should also watch the line of intrusion, to make sure it isn’t crossed.


Being serious, but not too much,


If One Person Can See You, it’s Possible for Everyone to

In our journey to create a plausible creatively expressive you, and as you give of your thoughts and feelings it’s important for them to be taken with acceptance, each positive step of the way. It’s a fact. If one person can understand your point of view; it’s possible for everyone to. So with this, keep an open mind as you look at others, with hope that they view you in the same manner you see them. So please, believe in the one.

If one can, everyone can,


The Joy of Living

The joy of living exists within the realm of our inner being. It is also a fact that most things important come from the inside, to the outside. All of your expressions, your energies, your thoughts and most of all your love come from the inside out.

The true happiness you achieve in life is not based on what happens around you, but what you understand and create inside your inner being. Can you remember the way your parents would sit you down and explain certain things to you that you did not yet understand? That was the beginning structure of creating your inner being.

We are all individuals and the development of our inner being is what creates and shows us who we truly are as a person, in and about our life. And with that individuality we must develop the concept of relative relating with others, because if not we would never know who we are as well as others understanding that we are. So the joy of living comes from within, but it is important for your inner being to be understood by others on the outside, in order for us to be who we are.

Enjoying living,
