I just discovered an excellent resource – dcgirl0067’s Photostream. Trust me, you’ll be glad you clicked 🙂

Behind the scenes is looking pretty awesome this season 🙂

For me friendships are important, family is important, and it is a blessing if we can have monetary benefits. That’s wonderful, and I love it. But I have to have the security of people who really care about me, and me about them. I want to be surrounded by people who have integrity. – Camille Cosby

Survival needs are those things that you need to continue living. Survival needs are not based on having what the next person has.

Be clear.

One is need. One is greed.

What is your culture?

If it does not uplift you,

If it provides comfort to those who are less than,

If it encourages, supports, or excuses wrongdoing,

that “culture” does not belong to you.

Be careful of what you accept, excuse, and defend. You transmit culture.

You are a reflection.

To the mirror. To your children. To any and every one who comes in contact with you.

Your choices matter.

Aim high.

Pursue excellence.

Be exquisite.

The weekend is finally here!

I am so looking forward to catching up with some old friends and also checking out a certain documentary.

So, in the spirit of an old school weekend . . . 🙂

Well Dressed

Just by chance, I caught a profile on JJ Hat Center.

It reminded me so much of my grandfathers

. . . and men looking like men.

My, my! Yeah, a well dressed man in a hat is now at the top of my list.

Right there with jazz 🙂
