Our Own Worst Enemies
Words escape me. The happenings in the Gulf of Mexico have resulted in a decision to forgo my transition to New Orleans living for the moment. I lament that statement, as I was genuinely looking forward to the change...but even more so I weep for the injury the earth is suffering right now. What will left of the world we knew is yet to be seen; habitats not found anywhere else in the world gone forever, species of wildlife & fish extincted, food shortages...it's too much to ponder at times honestly. I won't spew my political thoughts onto this page, because at the end of the day none of it matters. The earth is hurting. Hemorrhaging. The day looks dark.
I summoned up some Blackness to shake that load off. This mix made me dance & smile while making it, so I hope it does the same for you.
An aside: Fans of the Back of the Bus can help in my effort to support HIV/AIDS research by donating to the show. Until the end of August, 50% of all donations will be used to sponsor Allegra Dolores (http://foxbrownfox.net/the-artists/allegra-dolores/) member Kay Allay as she runs a marathon in support of the Aids Foundation of Chicago in September. You can also sponsor her directly by going to http://afc.aidschicago.org/netcommunity/kimeco. Great cause & a great person, so please give what you can. Thank ya kindly.
