A Revolutionary Love: Rog and Bee Walker For ESSENCE February 2017

"Talk about a Revolutionary Love!"

I’m just now getting around to reading the February 2017 issue of Essence magazine online and this editorial featuring some of my favorite creatives, Rog and Bee Walker made me stop in my tracks. 
I went to Jamaica and other Caribbean nations in May of last year and I had an epiphany whereas I have no desire to read any mainstream magazines anymore. I didn't want to buy any of the paper ones and I couldn't even muster up the strength to look at the ones I subscribe to online.

With all of our beauty and style being positively presented online ( these two are a part of that revolution) on various platforms, I don’t even need to read or see anything they’re saying or talking about. The aesthetics alone are enough for me.

Congratulations Serena!!

Loved-up: Serena Williams, 35, stepped out in style with her new fiance Alexis Ohanian as they welcomed 2017 in Auckland, New Zealand

I want to congratulate Serena Williams on her engagement. The tennis star is engaged to Reddit co-founder, Alexis Ohanian, and some folks are deep into their feelings over her engagement. The Notep's and Neverloutionaries are pissed because they think they have lost another prominent black woman in their eyes. Who she marries is none of our business. 

The Notep's and their handmaidens have pointed out that Reddit is supposedly a haven for racists, what they failed to point out is that racists are prominent on every platform on the internet, so be truthful with your lies, agendas and propaganda. I believe in all women exercising their options by dating and marrying men who love, respect, honor, provide, protect, build and value them regardless of who they are and avoid those who don't.

Do you Serena and eff the idiots!!!

Prince has died and it hurts so bad, especially when that person is closer to you in age and you start questioning your own mortality. It's particularly frightening when many artists from the soundtrack of my life are dying and it feels like life is moving fast-forward.

I'm so glad I had the opportunity to hear and see him perform at The Essence Music Festival and I will never forget that night. The Superdome was glowing in purple, looking like a purple flying saucer and he asked all of us to dress in purple to commemorate that night. Prince was the ultimate performer and the crowd went wild as he performed his classic hits. 

Death is inevitable and all of us will experience it one day, so live your life to the fullest. Stop wasting the best years of your life with people who deduct from your lives and stop worrying about people who hate you. Live unapologetically!!


Dearly beloved
We are gathered here today
2 get through this thing called life…
I thank Prince for the great music and the wonderful memories and may his soul rest in power. His music legacy will live on forever.
