So they Tell Me I’m Evil

I’ve heard I’m heartless

A demon even the Lord wouldn’t bless
I have no secret powers
But at my sight demons and saints cower
Laughing out loud
My haters make me proud
I am whatever they say I am
Complicated views
Despair on the evening news
Every day I scan
To find out who they say I am
I am whatever they say I am
If I was not why would I say I am

Barbie reshapes long held ideals of beauty and body standards.

I was never a Barbie kind of girl growing up. The iconic doll with her long golden hair and thin limbs just didn't speak to me. Theoretically, I was opposed to everything I thought Barbie stood for.  The truth is I was never a doll type of girl but I might have been if I the new evolution of Barbie had been available when I was a kid. The power of seeing a version of yourself that you can identify with can't be undervalued. Grown women have been moved to tears since Mattel revealed the new Barbies.  Women are buying several versions of the doll to represent their many facets. At the launch, Mattel explained the reason Barbie had to evolve. "The new 2016 Barbie® Fashionistas® doll line includes four body types (the original and three new bodies), seven skin tones, 22 eye colors, 24 hairstyles and countless on-trend fashions and accessories. With added diversity and more variety in styles, fashions, shoes, and accessories, girls everywhere will have infinitely more ways to spark their imagination and play out their stories. Because with Barbie® You Can Be Anything!"

Motown Magic is better than any Mojo you can conjure up.

Detroit used to be a place where people didn't just work hard,  they dreamed, then they made the impossible happen.  I could tell you a little story about a guy named Berry Gordy, but I don't have all night. Detroit has had some bad press lately. High crime rates, bankruptcy, the auto bailout still it is where I started this journey. I know that for most when they think of Detroit the image they see is this. A city that can't keep it's street lights on, a city struggling on life support, ready to be unhooked and put out of its misery at any moment. This will never be my Detroit. I'm a little bias. I still think the Renaissance Building is one of  the most beautiful buildings ever built. I remember all the circuses my mom took us to in Cobbo Hall or Joe Louis Arena,. The best thing about Christmas was seeing the Nutcracker and then going to Hudson's Magical Wonderland. You can grow up, but a little of your childhood will always be right there under the surface. You can move thousands of  miles away , but  all it takes is one chord from a  song and your right back home again cleaning your room singing in a hairbrush and practicing the new Temptations or Gladys Knight and the Pips moves. You can leave Motown but Motown never leaves you. BTW, I never sang into a hairbrush, but I know peopel who might have.  I know many people think I'm too young to have a Motown soundtrack to my life but I'm not. Motown made music that still tells a story that is timeless today.

Pay it Forward Part II

It’s been a rough couple of days.  To be honest I haven’t felt like paying much forward but…
