Expecting Ideations: March 26, 2014

The gurgles are similar to outer space noise. I’m referring to the movement in my belly. Each day as I look unto my belly, the realization that a human is growing becomes more evident. The switch to maternity clothing has already begun and so has the late night hunger. This honeymoon stage is very accurate because besides the clothes and hunger pains, me being pregnant hasn’t quite hit me. Just saying “me being pregnant” makes me take a double take, and say, “Who? You?”

This blissful time is starting to catch up, but for the time being I’m definitely enjoying the idea.

Expecting Ideations: February 26, 2014

This moment has taken me by storm. It’s not a hail storm, a rainstorm.  I’m happy that I’ve decided to go through and have the baby.  Yes, a baby! I believe we are going to be great parents.  There’s no one else I have in mind I would want to have a baby with. 

I’m looking forward to what this journey will bring.  I’m looking forward to this part of my life.  To think just a couple of years ago, I was beginning a more natural, healthy, lifestyle.  And to think in less than nine months, I will be helping to guide another life on their journey. I think that’s what I’m most looking forward to: who is this person and what will they bring.  Not to put pressure on them, but just curiosity has struck me.

 As I maneuver through the nuances of pregnancy, another human being will be taking shape.  There is so much to look towards, and nausea is not one of them.


The ball starts rolling down the hill so fast. Picking up momentum as the wind pushes its back. Twigs, gum, even discarded condom wrappers confronts its path. And there’s no stopping.

How y’all gone stand by and let our music turn into pop techno cornball ass music. We don’t own our music no more. Come to think of it, did we EVER own it? when I say own our music , I’m not talkin bout the artist I’m talkin bout the people … let me be quiet. I wanna hear from the young people? easy for me to complain about this techno-pop cause i have a taste for something else. but how do u feel? These rappers ought to be shame of they damn selves, I’m talkin bout the mc’ s rappin over this pop techno music. I believe in pimpin the system buy got DAMN! not like this. #pop-technosongs. I like the idea of no distinction in race when it comes 2 music, but SOULkeepers, U dont give up the boom bip and the hump 4 the payday. I love house and techno as a side dish .But now it’s served as the main course AND that’s ALL u gone get. like chittlins in the back house. I love music PERIOD. just not ready to say goodbye to the boom bip and the hump .. kinda painful for my generation to see. just strange 2me. Yes, no1 wants 2B poor again. artist have2 sacrifice integrity of the music sometimes 2 make ends meet. this is understood.but gotDAMN now. if you’ve never tasted good p*ssy your satisfied with ass hole. (that’s terrible ain’t it .) lol
