Kissy Swain -from Africa - Born 1781
F or many years my family only knew our ancestors back to the late 1870s - early 1900s with Martha Clark and William McMillian, but now I have traced back 90 years more to Kizzie Swain born in 1781 in Africa. Yes that is what I said Africa.  Martha's mother...

A Black Woman of A Certain Age- Living Life On Purpose
Introduction
 
After living all over the East Coast, I moved to Southern California in 2005.  I felt the immediate sense of home and excitement and possibility Los Angeles has been my springboard. Being here has given me the courage to peel back the layers of my life, revealing my authentic self.  As unrecognizable as this self was, I gained the ability to trust it, to hear and recognize my own voice, to hear and recognize the voice of God,  hence gaining the strength to persevere.

I have  always had a passion for people, photography, and the written word and now feel that I want to  spend the rest of my life exploring these avenues.  When it comes to people, I enjoy what makes us alike across all ethnicities, religions, and cultures; but I feed on what makes us different.  I intend to photograph and write about people in order to share with others what I learn and what I have a passion for.

In this journey I intend to be the giver to and caretaker of my brothers and sisters of this world. Sharing stories about people and the many ways we live, love and learn. Discovering that there are many ways of doing the same thing, it all depends on what you have been taught, what part of the world you are in,  and what are your resources.  I want to learn these many ways and I want to share it with you.

Multi-media is going to be my vehicle of choice, and I am going to share all that I encompass and more of what I embrace.
