Magic Wings

 
Life has taken me away from the keyboard for awhile, but I'm finding my way back! I haven't had much energy left lately. My Little Butterfly takes it all. That's what I called my daughter during her stay in Intensive Care.  She was a preemie and always swaddled up in her blanket, like a cocoon. She blossomed quickly and became a favorite among the staff with her funny faces and bright smile. Her personality is BIG! We are grateful for the wonderful care she received and recently braved the hot sun to attend the yearly reunion for family and staff. It was held at The Museum of Life and Science in Durham, NC. I was melting in the outdoor tent setting and sought refuge in one of  my favorite places, the Magic Wings Butterfly House. The exotic flowers and mist from the sprinklers make it a tropical rainforest paradise.  It was heavenly when the butterflies surrounded us. Anyone who knows me should be able to tell you that when two of them landed on my butterfly's carriage, I was super ecstatic. I felt a sense of renewal and rebirth while I was there, much like the life of a butterfly. It gave me the zeal to start talking about the Kindle Version of my book, The Divorcée Chronicles. You can probably guess what is on the cover. Take a look. I hope to talk to you more in the coming weeks, but for now....back to looking through butterfly pictures!

THE FIFTEENTH SEPTEMBER

September is a bittersweet month for me. It is filled with celebrations of life as there are multiple Virgos in my immediate family, including myself and my mom, but it has also become a time of remembering death. Fifteen years ago, on September 11, 2001, I was staring out of the window at University of North Carolina Hospitals. My birthday was the next day, but it was overshadowed with wondering how I would survive the 12 hours days with my full-time internship in the psychiatric ward and my part-time job in admissions at night. Not physically, but mentally. It was the first time I'd been back there since my dad’s sudden cardiac death four years earlier in September of 1997, just a few days before he would have some time off and could celebrate a belated birthday lunch he had promised me. Ironically, I saw him in passing traffic as I sped to work just hours before his death and we waved and smiled. He pointed his finger like I was busted for driving too fast and I couldn’t wait …

When Stars Align

I had a wonderful time over the past few days celebrating Martin Luther King, Jr. with my former co-workers and watching the inaugural celebrations that coincided with the holiday. It was a very inspiring time and it sparked this small tribute to Dr. King and President Obama, straight from a Diva's Heart!

How divine, when stars align! Celebrating on this day, the birth of a King In the 50th year of the march for the justice he wished to bring In the same time and space where it all took place, His presence now stands tall to witness it all As we, Black, White and the rainbow in between Usher in, yet again, the manifest destiny of a dream!
Happy Birthday Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Congratulations President Barack Obama!
