I am the curve and he is the line.

My brother and I are different, but there is more than enough room in this world for him, me and YOU!

-LadyG

Here is part two of the interview with my brother Tack.

In this video, we discuss lessons from our Daddy, humor and what it was like for him to grow up with LadyG as an older sister.

Enjoy…

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.

And so…

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!

NEXT!

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?

LOL!!!

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!”

LOL!

NO!

I’m simply doing what?

Let’s say it together:  “Growing and Expanding!”

YAAASSSS!

Now…

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!

LOL!!!

Growing and Expanding!

How are you growing and expanding?

Drop down and comments and let me know!

 

Love Poems Read By Lady G: Instantly Inflamed

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

Storm of Ink

Stunning articulation

A voice of sensuality

Provocative delivery

A steamy tone

Ambrosial tongue

A salacious wonder

Desirous aphrodisiac

A delightful voice

Captivating dream

A luscious sound

Drowning fantasy

A vivacious jolt

Riveting earthquake

A vivid astonishment

Self-Love Series: A Tribal Investment by Lady G

via Self-Love Series: A Tribal Investment by Lady G

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,

LadyG 😘💋💋

 

Love Poems Read By Lady G: Take A Look At Yourself

Love is complicated! Check out this raw and vulnerable piece written by my dear Musical Twin, T. Wayne at ajoyfulprocess

A Joyful Process

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—

Turn around.

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…

The Flowering Vine: She Needed Me…

Here’s a reading of a piece that I wrote for the “Flowering Vine” series. It is about “love.”

She wanted him

BUT he wanted me

So she

Stormed

And she seethed

She wanted him

BUT he wanted me

So she

Sought

And she stalked

She wanted him

BUT he wanted me

So she

Schemed

And she steamed

She wanted him

So she needed me

to be

Silenced

Sequestered

Severed

And sliced

Eternally

encased

And placed…

out of sight.

For Aunt Elvy’s daughter, Alberta, (Mother’s dear first cousin and friend), reportedly murdered by a jealous rival.
