“A Family Conversation” is a storytelling audio series that features weekly discussions between blogging cousins LadyG and Ron Brown on current events along with favorite posts from each other’s blog.

All babies together, everyone a seed
Half of us are satisfied, half of us in need
Love’s bountiful in us, tarnished by our greed
When will there be a harvest for the world

Today the cousins discuss LadyG’s post America Needs Some Samfundssind Up In Here.

Pt 1: Family Chit chat
Samfundssind vs Hygge
Mr. Spock’s Philosophy  
The Facebook Provocateur 

Pt 2: Americans: Diametrically opposed 
If you’re not going to help, don’t hinder.
Dunning-Kruger solve the puzzle
Stop the Parties!

Pt 3: George Washington’s warning 
Back to Samfundssind: Prioritizing the greater good 
Greedy Capitalists don’t trickle it down
Running the Gauntlet 

Pt 4: Walking in other folks shoes
Sacrificing for the country…but not really. 
Don’t talk about it be about it. 
Do unto others

A Family Conversation: Trouble We Ain’t Gon’ See

No matter what happened that’s only once it’s shame on you
You come up in here and do it again then it’s shame on me
Sometimes we be gettin’ in trouble we didn’t wan’ learn or
Sometimes we be gettin’ in trouble we ain’t gon’ see…

This week, the cousins discuss:

“What Time Is It?” written by Ron’s Father, Fletcher Brown, around 1974.

Sadly, it touches on themes that are still very relevant today.

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 😘💋💋
