heart slowing 

mind calming.

Being that consciousness demands expression, movement, the first impression should be one of Beginnings. Omnipresence, Omniscience,Omnipotence. This Trinity of Creation is spoken past language in the distant shadows of earliest time and finds echoes within every…

As a kid, I was continually told what I couldn't do because I was Black. It was a very frustrating period of my life. However,  at the age of nine (9) a Pullman Porter, name Mr. Ross, gave me a book, which was the Bio of an African-American, name Matthew Henson, an African-American explorer, it changed the course of my life...
