A to Z Update



My plate is full with demanding, though fun and meaningful, projects. I thought I could participate in the A to Z Blogger's Challenge but can not. This year I'm going to support fellow bloggers from the sidelines during April, visiting your blogs when I can.  I'm in the final stages of editing my soon-to-be-released book, writing my 7th book and preparing for my fall solo exhibition of my art, and that is a very full plate.

I hope to do a good job with what I'm working on and put my passion there. I'm stepping out of the challenge before it begins in order to write, edit and paint.

See you all on your blogs during the A to Z Challenge, and hope to participate again in 2018!

  1. I've come close to the same decision. I just decided I needed a little play. I tend to read several days of a blog at one time to keep up with my visits. Best wishes on your new book.

  5. Beautiful painting! Better to bow out now and focus on the stuff you need to do rather than be forced to leave later in the middle of things. Best of luck with all your projects.

  6. A shame you couldn't participate, but I get it. I had to sit out last year with too much going on. Congrats on your upcoming book release and art exhibit. Fantastic! :D

    1. Yes! I will miss it tremendously. There's something exhilarating about making it through a marathon of any kind but I'm overbooked. Thanks Sara!

  7. Wow. Congratulations on all the stuff you have on your plate! And, though it is a shame you can't participate this year, it sounds like you're going to have a fabulous and fulfilling April!

Autumn Equinox Gardening Reflection Part 2

Poof!
We planted, and the little seedlings took.
They fluttered in the wind, and were visited by bees and butterflies.
The seedlings and plants seemed to enjoy the composted earth and worms, by all indications.











Autumn Equinox Gardening Reflection Part 1

I've been waiting for this post for a long time. It shares the growing journey of my urban garden.










Making Soulful Connections

This weekend, I had the pleasure of presenting my new release "Earth Mama's Spiritual Guide to Weight Loss" at Afriware Books and Events, an African-centered bookstore in Maywood, Illinois to a wonderfully receptive audience. Topics covered included making juice from popular soul food fruits and veggies and making mojo bags for self-determination and strength. My daughter Olivia Bird took these action photos:






Thanks to all involved, including Afriware staff, volunteers, my family and the folks who came out on a beautiful Saturday Summer afternoon and supported my work.
