I finally took a little time to do some leisurely reading this weekend and ran across this amazing article about #writing and the writing process.  It also happens to be a beautifully written tribute to #hiphop and one of the greatest artists/MCs of all time (and my personal favorite), Rakim. (and Eric B. too, of course)
While I've always loved these classic tunes... the #music... Rakim's mesmerizing voice and iconic flow... as a #writer, I now have a deeper appreciation... and connection to the message.
Read this... writer or not, I guarantee you will too...
The landmark album offers simple lessons, magnificently told

I'd forgotten how profound #Spock  was!  Such an iconic character... #LeonardNimoy , you will be missed. Rest in peace.

Goodbye Spock. You have been, and always shall be, our friend.

He was my favorite character. I even dressed as Spock on Halloween when I was five.  Now he's with McCoy and Scotty on the other side.  #LLAP

Driving to the office this morning, I was listening to #BackSpin on +SiriusXM and heard *Rollin' with Kid N Play."  If you are old enough to remember that song, you know that it has a (pseudo)  #GoGo  beat to it.
It reminded me how much I truly miss real Go-Go music.
And when I say REAL Go-Go, those of you who grew up in the #DMV (or spent significant time there) between the late 70s and early 90s know what I mean... 
Rare Essence... Junkyard... NE Groovers... Trouble Funk... and of course the immortal Chuck Brown (among many others)
Back when it was original... not just putting a go-go beat to current radio hit.  When it had imagination and a sound that was uniquely "ours" (DC)... forever imitated...but never properly duplicated (thank goodness).  Love it or hate it... the talent of these musicians will never be denied!
So I leave you with one of my all time favorite #oldschool  Trouble Funk jams that's getting me hype and making my Monday morning effin' awesome right now!
If it doesn't do anything for you... It's ok...
It's a DC thing... you might not understand.

Just another #musicsnob inspired #mindlessmusing ...
Keep calm... put your Gucci watch on and synchronize the time.
(^^^ another DC thing that you wouldn't understand)

Thanks +Ivy LaArtista! I was starting to think I was alone on this one. Though I do realize go-go is an acquired taste.

Even when it seems like nothing special, each day we are given is a gift. For that reason alone we have a reason to smile. After all, even bad days above ground are good days, right? #ChatterBoxWisdom

Introduction

I'm an author, blogger, life-caster, social media junkie, geeky-girl, coffee addict, and multitasking mom.  Like my many manuscripts, my life is a work in progress.  The creative, clever, candid, and always heavily caffeinated contents of my imperfectly inspired life are spewed across my blogs and live internet shows. 

My methods are unfounded if not unconventional yet somehow I manage to enlighten people...or a least entertain them which works just as well.  My overall mission is to put smiles on faces and if you're not smiling right now, well, you haven't had enough coffee!
