Breakfast! Wish me well... Over the next 12 weeks, I'm making the lifestyle change in my cuisine and diet, as well as physical activity and exercise.

I'm excited about the process and being in better health!

This is a very honest and insightful expression to those who say they don't understand white privilege. Reading this reminded me of so many moments... We have been entirely too patient for #400years .
Yesterday I was tagged in a post by an old high school friend, asking me and a few others a very public, direct question about white privilege and racism. I feel compelled not only to publish his …

#BeautifulAfrica Social media is emboldening young Zimbabweans to protest the government policies of President Robert Mugabe. All over the world, social media and technology has encouraged social change.

#BeautifulAfrica We celebrate Olympic Bronze-medal Champion Luisito Pie! Not everyone in his native Dominican Republic accepts him as a champion from their country because of their hatred for his complexion and his father's family having ancestry in neighboring Haiti. We love Black people! And, we're proud of our champion, representing Dominican Republic!

Africans have been making this SAME case in the Americas for #400years . It's way past time for whites to quit acting like they don't understand. It's already been explained, well enough, for four centuries.
We need to stop arguing with them because, in the end, they aren’t invested like we are. They aren’t paying attention to these stories out of fear for their lives and the lives of their…

Very interesting, open space, in the heart of Bronzeville! Truly stumbled upon this eatery, in our neighborhood. Amazingly close to public transportation and free street parking. The community is on the cusp of gentrification. We enjoyed the chicken and pork, with excellent fried plain rain and fish fritters! The jerk sauce was okay, but it isn't as flavorful as I'd hoped. Excellent and kind service.

Very comfortable and clean facilities here, with no major concern about noise. Breakfast was nice, if routine. But, it was fresh, hot, and available on time. We spent just one night here and felt relaxed and rested. Recommended.

This is a large and meandering park, which hugs the lakefront at one point and leaps into the heart of the urban city at another. There is a bird sanctuary, a track and football field, golfing and tennis, and lots and lots space to walk and enjoy nature.

The artwork here is really interesting and represents some thoughtful collection. The staff representing the museum is not thoughtful and certainly not interesting. Come for the art.

This may be one of the worst-placed Divvy stations in the city. Again, the bike station is literally next to a train station. But, after you've had to walk several blocks to get to this bike station, why wouldn't you just take the train? Nearly EVERY other nearby Divvy station is ALSO located at a train station. Huh? Who does that? These bikes sit idle for much of the time. Why ride a bike when you can only take it to the nearest train station? Idiocy.

This continues to be one of my favorite "Sunday morning after worship" places to grab a bite and enjoy the start of a great day. The place isn't fancy, but the food is really good! Southsiders of every stripe come here and enjoy a good meal. You might see an Alderman, a Deacon, the mailman, or a shoe-shine guy, all enjoying their meal in the same restaurant. It's very simple in aesthetic, but a nice place to grab a bite. Street parking is readily available. Accessible by bus.

Highly recommended. This stadium has great views all the way around the venue. There are lots of concessions with different items. Tons of stuff for young people to 'go and do', if they aren't so interested in sitting in their seats and watching the game. It's accessible by public transport, even from Chicago. It's a bit of a drive from the lakefront, but really very accessible.
