This is one of my first posts on the blog and it tells the story of how fiercely protective my mother was when it came to my brother and I.
BTW, I will be featuring my brother, Tack, in an upcoming video, where we will discuss some of his favorite posts on the blog…among other things!
This dude is something else! You’re going to love him!
But for now, please enjoy this flashback…

When I was a kid, the month of October bore two special gifts. First, it brought much needed respite from Georgia’s 200° ‘hell hot’ summer days.
And, best of all, it brought the fair!
My friends, I can’t begin to tell you how much my baby brother and I loved going to the fair! While there, we faced down Ferris wheels, haunted houses, bumper cars, and ‘flying pirate’ ships. One of our favorite rides was the Himalayas! Baby, that thing flung us around and around, forwards and backwards! We lived for the music, flashing lights and the carny/DJ yelling “Do you want to go faster?”
Yes my dear hearts, it was ALL good in October at the fair…until it wasn’t!
You see, one time, while we were at the fair, my…

What are we doing if we aren’t growing?
No, seriously, I really would like an answer.
I mean, we were meant to express ourselves by growing and expanding, right?
In my mind, staying stagnant is tantamount to The Beatles’ description of a “real nowhere man sitting in his nowhere land.”
How sad is that?
Frankly, I don’t think that anyone desires to remain exactly the same as she/he has always been.
Everybody has something that they aspire to; even if they have no idea how to get to that something.
With that said, I have spent the past few years thinking about all of the things that I would like to have, do and be.
I asked myself, “To what do I aspire?”
Believe it or not, starting a blog was one of those things…so we can go ahead and add that to my imaginary score sheet!
One for LadyG!
Uh…well…I’ve also wanted to engage in more collaborative efforts with other bloggers/creatives, and I am happy to report that I am currently doing that!
On a more personal note, I’ve changed my diet and lost a pretty significant amount of weight….but if I told you how much I’d have to kill you and then who would be left to read my blog, appreciate my collaborations or look at all of my “skinny” pictures?
Needless to say, there is so much more that I am doing and that I want to do.
For instance, right now, my son and I are in the process of starting a business.
And, despite what you might think, I am not insane…
Nor am I, as Lady J has said, “doing the MOST!”
I’m simply doing what?
Let’s say it together: “Growing and Expanding!”
As you all know, I have created other means to pursue and express my spiritual interests. Part of that now includes posting videos on Youtube.
And, in the interest of growth, I have stretched myself by appearing in front of the camera and by doing all of the video editing.
Hell, I even created a little musical ditty in Garage band to act as a theme song of sorts!
Y’all I have to laugh at myself sometimes!
I simply can’t take myself too seriously.
Anyway, take a look at this video of me pulling an affirmation card!
Written, performed, directed and produced by LadyG!
Growing and Expanding!
How are you growing and expanding?
Drop down and comments and let me know!
Oh boy! The conversation is getting juicy!
The louder I get the more thick my southern accent becomes! LOL!
As you know, Dr. Garland’s subject matter centers around male/female relationships. In this session, we continue our conversation from part 2 on the differences between men and women.
Please be sure to follow Dr. Garland and Michelle! You can link to them via the first or second post of this interview.
In this video, Dr. Garland talks about her writing process and the affect that some of her subject matter has had on her personally.
And YES, my Southern accent is SUPER THICK in this one!
Stay tuned for subsequent videos!

Because this dude does sensuality better than any poet I know…I give you for Valentine’s Day, my voice reading Braeden Michael’s Instantly Inflamed! YAAASSSS
Please check out this post that my good friend Dr. K. E. Garland asked me to write for her blog’s “Self-Love” series.
Many of you may already know Dr. Garland as the author of The Unhappy Wife.
Well, in addition to that, she is also the Editor of Daddy, an anthology which includes stories written by women about their relationships with their fathers. Tikeetha Thomas, a well-known blogger on WP is featured in Daddy.
Both of these ladies are fierce in this writing game and I encourage you to check them out, if you haven’t already.
Also, be sure to catch the latest edition of the “Self Love” series as it is written by my dear sister, Michelle, who is also the very talented author of a love poem that I recently read on this blog entitled, “Present Distance.”
You can find Michelle here.
Seriously, check her out! I can assure you that you will NOT be disappointed.
I hope you enjoy my piece. Let’s discuss it in comments 🙂
PS: I will continue the poetry readings through Valentines Day. That said, you will not want to miss my reading of one of the baddest poets on WP, Braeden Michaels!
Love and Light,
Love is complicated! Check out this raw and vulnerable piece written by my dear Musical Twin, T. Wayne at ajoyfulprocess
Another poem. I hope you like it. Just some things I had been thinking about and decided to put them down.
Before you unleash
Your threats and invectives
Your taunts and snide remarks
Your insults and character slices
Before you point
At my failings and deficiencies
At my values and opinions
At my idiosyncrasies and habits
Before you rail
About my choices and comments
About my abilities or lack thereof
About my current situation or anything about me—
Take a look in the mirror.
Search your mind, soul and psyche.
Focus on your own imperfections, cracks and vulnerabilities.
My faults, shortcomings and flaws belong to me.
They are for me to work on, not for you to criticize.
Far too much time is spent tearing people down.
For once, lift them up.
Written about a recent situation I have had to deal with…
