Love Notes From Lady G: Make That Move!

So many times

By holding back I let the good things pass me by

And then one day I asked myself the reason why

And like an answer from above you came into my life

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

“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.

**********************************************************************

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…

-Mystikal

“Bouncin’ Back (Bumpin’ Me Against The Wall)”

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.

Rambling Musical Commentary: That’s My Jam

**Escapism alert!

Some adult language

Ok, seriously!

Enough is enough!

I have got to find ways to improve my mental wellbeing.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m still ALL about the cause and will continue my work…

But, as my dear friend, the other Lady G oft quotes, “The world is too much with us…”

She borrowed it from Wordsworth and I borrowed it from her.

And so…

In an effort to keep “the world” manageable for ME, I decided to do something fun on the blog by offering a rambling commentary on my musical posts, including “My Jams” which was a R&B series for years 1966-1996.

Join me as I touch on…
