There is an innate
Creative Force Flowing From
within all of us.
It was "A Night to Remember" recently when I had the privilege to share my "Spoken Words" on stage with Alfie Pollitt on Piano, Tyrone Brown on Bass and Terrell Floyd on Drums at the Jazz Bridge Neighborhood Concert in Philadelphia. I am a Blessed Woman. Asante Sana. Peace & Blessings Always.

Recognizing and feeling connected to your passion is a gift that is rare and precious, yet it is also everyone’s birthright. As I prepare for a poetry reading with a group of phenomenal jazz musicians, I am prayerful and humbled. I feel so honored that poetry found me and continues to propel me forward. I feel so blessed that the creative spirit of our ancestors lives and breathes through me. I feel so thankful and grateful to be alive, following this path of self discovery and sharing my findings with the world. It is quite a sacred journey indeed. Asante Sana. Peace and Blessings Always.

Like most people, I
am happiest when engaged
in my element.

I’ve said it before and I will repeat it again: “I live my life in a state of perpetual gratitude.” Today I am so grateful for each opportunity I get to share my gifts. This Wednesday, April 9th, I have the honor and pleasure of performing poetry with a supremely stellar trio, featuring Alfie Pollitt on piano, Tyrone Brown on bass and Terrell Floyd on drums. The concert is sponsored by Jazz Bridge, a nonprofit organization that assists our local jazz and blues musicians in crisis. Kimberly C. Roberts of the Philadelphia Tribune was kind enough to file a story about the event. Please check out the details here: 

Asante Sana. Peace and Blessings Always

“What’s Love Got To Do With It?”

"Spreading Leaves" photo by Pheralyn Dove
Money is simply
a rate of exchange, not your
essence or self-worth.

Although it’s our birthright to be prosperous, we often confuse money with wealth. We tend to place disproportionate value on our ability to purchase material possessions even as we forget to acknowledge an abundance of priceless entities that cannot be measured in dollars and cents. So many “things” that money can’t buy determine wealth:  things like health, freedom, happiness, family, friends, creative self-expression and independence.  So as you go about creating money, don’t forget to acquire wealth. Asante Sana. Peace and Blessings Always.
