“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.
There’s too many of you crying
Brother, brother, brother
There’s far too many of you dying
You know we’ve got to find a way
To bring some lovin’ here todayWhat’s going on. Marvin Gaye

This week, the cousins discuss a 2020 reblog of LadyG’s post, “I’ve Noticed,” from July 2016.
BEWARE! In the 3rd audio (maybe it was the 2nd audio), LadyG gets SIDETRACKED when talking about “bad cops.” Of course this led her down a nearby “rabbit hole.” A relevant topic, but a “rabbit hole” nonetheless.
Before abruptly switching topics, I was planning to make the point that bad cops are not made better through additional training. These officers just can’t fit into the new mold that we desire.
Seriously, we need to totally dismantle and restructure the system of racism in law enforcement that continues to dog the marginalized.
Jesus said, and I’m paraphrasing: Don’t pour new wine into old wineskins.
Derek Chauvin and the structure that supported his ability to don the badge is a prime case in point.
I believe that highly trained new officers, who don’t have all of that horrible history of bias, are a much better investment.
If we can train new soldiers to be both skilled at combat and accountable for their actions, we can do the same thing with new police officers.
Psychopaths vs Sociopaths:
Psychopaths tend to be more manipulative, can be seen by others as more charming, lead a semblance of a normal life, and minimize risk in criminal activities. Sociopaths tend to be more erratic, rage-prone, and unable to lead as much of a normal life. When sociopaths engage in criminal activity, they tend to do so in a reckless manner without regard to consequences.

Please allow these recordings to bring you a bit of peace and encouragement during these uncertain times. Despite appearances, know that all is well.
Lady G LOVES YOU!

Apologies for popping my “Ps” during the Prayer of Protection LOL! The content is what matters most 🙂

I am Lady G, aka The Alluring Intuitive, and I am glad that you dropped by my spot for a message 🙂
Just so you know, my readings are not meant to be predictive but they do typically offer confirmation.
That said, they may or may not resonate with you.
I am often told by followers that my reading applied when they saw it (or later)…not on the date it was posted!
It is also important to note that I am an intuitive reader so these same cards could easily be interpreted quite differently by a traditional tarot card reader.
Let us commence with today’s Summer Solstice message for 2019:
As you know, my loves, we are always planting seeds. Some we know about on a conscious level and some we plant on a subconscious level.
Today’s reading is about the seeds that some of us have…

Far be it from me to skip out and NOT post something to acknowledge my favorite season…
Those of you who followed this blog when it was an active thingy will remember that Autumn is my JAM!
I had to take time today to greet the Autumnal Equinox and all of my friends on WordPress!
I miss you all so much!
Here are a few pictures of how I spent the last evening of Summer (2018) with our dear Luna and friends!
As you know, Mother moon was doing her waxing gibbous thing.
No doubt, preparing for the upcoming equinox, and for all of her glory when she will show her full self as the harvest moon.
At summer’s end, LadyG–lover of music, magick, and dance…
and flourished herself into a foolish frenzy!
Right there underneath the moonlight!
Poolside no less!
Baby, ALL OF THE elements were at play!
Perhaps the universe noticed my whimsy!
Maybe it will bring more things to dance about…
I love you all! Stop by and say hello in comments
Love and light!
Greetings Friends and Family!
Lady G is happily relaxing on this lovely Mother’s Day!
My children surprised me with flowers, candy and brunch!
I also got a fitbit to help me get in shape!
No doubt, I am so blessed.
I can’t help missing my own mother.
There are so many of us who know that destination all too well.
Alas…it is a place in which we cannot dwell…
Life demands that we move forward and continue to grow; being fully present for our own children and for those whom we love and who love us.
Anyway, I pray that you all are doing well and that you are celebrating the mothers in your life… or that you are celebrating your own motherhood!
I miss you guys!
Love and light to you all!
Have a magnificent day and week 🙂
Please drop by and say hello!
That plate was clean about 5 minutes after this shot was taken…hence the fitbit! LOL!!!
Today is a day of very deep introspection for me, and I want to thank you for reading or following my blog for the past couple of years or so!
You ALL are very important to me and I send love and light to you!
Be blessed my sweet friends!
Stay tuned for more content in coming weeks and months!
-Lady G 😘 💋 💋
I pray that we learn to align with THE MOST HIGH GOD so that we may enjoy a feast of peace, happiness and unity.
Today, tomorrow and forever!
And so it is!
Now let me get back to my collard greens, cornbread dressing, macaroni and cheese, peach cobbler, cranberry sauce and turkey!
To my friends in America: Happy Thanksgiving!
To my friends from all over the world: Have a magnificent day!
Love and light to you all! See you soon!
Lady G 💋💋
PS: Comment below if you have any questions about traditional Southern cooking during the holidays OR if you just want to say hello and catch up!
If a man says, “I love God,” and hates his brother, he is a liar; for he who doesn’t love his brother whom he has seen, how can he love God whom he has not seen?
–1 John 4:20
Just behind this door resides a noble little fae
Who has an open heart of gold for those who’ve lost their way.
She gathers all her eensy friends;
They know just what to do.
They share their food,
They offer care,
They teach eternal truth,
No questions asked;
No judgments made;
No hoarding of “the loot.”
They know that one can’t pull a strap unless he has a boot.
A simple rhyme from LadyG’s imagination!
Lately, I find myself so disheartened by current events; especially in the U.S.
Seriously! I often wonder if people realize that our children are looking on as adults act like violent and malicious spoiled brats who are singularly focused on what is best for them and theirs.
THEM! They are the problem!
What about US?
What’s our role?
What are we teaching our babies when we behave this way?
What are we teaching ourselves…The world?
We can do better!
Question, do all of the God-fearing folks really believe in and have reverence for God?
Simply put, you can’t love God in heaven while stepping all over your brother on Earth.
I’ve had enough!
I’ve created my own alternate world where love, kindness and generousity reign.
I’ve done it before.
Does anybody want to join me? Plan to pray and meditate 🙂
Love and light to you all 💋
