  • The dictionary will, unfortunately, never fully capture all the language we use. 
  • E. Badu’s video reminds me not to self-censor.
  • Additionally, allow others to be themselves.
  • Exchange energy with others intentionally.  Always go for the thank you, you’re welcome.
  • Trust yourself. If you don’t, start. If you do, keep on.
  • Just being in Whole Foods makes me happy. Celebrate the little things in life.
  • We all want what’s rare, so why do you appreciate common beauty more than uncommon beauty?
  • Note: stop comparing your uncommon beauty.
  • The internet and all of its social networks are microcosms of a microcosm. Don’t take it or yourself so seriously. It’s not real. Share space, air, and eye contact.
  • Live in love&light.

Maxwell. Love him. The other day, I found myself listening to his Unplugged album and wondering when he was going to release his new album BLACKsummers’snight. All I had was this snippet of “Pretty Wings” that I love so much, I gladly play on repeat until it’s played a good twenty times or so. Imagine the grand surprise in store when I found the video and saw that the single was available for download on iTunes. It cost $1.29, which prompted a “what the…?” but I still bought it. That dollar was spent well. 🙂

Enjoy both the video and the song.

Time will bring the real end of our trial
One day there’ll be no remnants, no trace,
No residual feelings within you
One day you won’t remember me.

Your face will be the reason I smile
But I will not see what I cannot have forever
I’ll always love you.
I hope you feel the same.

Oh, you played me dirty, your game was so bad
You toyed with my affliction
Had to fill out my prescription for the remedy
I had to set you free.

Away from me
To see clearly
The way that love can be
when you are not with me
I had to leave
I had to live
I had to lead
I had to live

If I can’t have you
Let love set you free
To fly your pretty wings around.

Pretty wings, your pretty wings, your
Pretty wings. Pretty wings around.

I came wrong you were right
Transformed your love into like.
Baby believe me, I’m sorry I told you lies.
I turned day into night
Sleep till I die a thousand times
Ah, I should’ve showed you
Better nights, better times, better days
And I miss you more and more

If I can’t have you
Let love set you free
To fly your pretty wings around.

Pretty wings, your pretty wings, your
Pretty wings. Pretty wings around.

Pretty wings, your pretty wings, your
Pretty wings. Pretty wings around.

What My World Sounds Like: Janelle Monae

In December, I wrote about Janelle Monae.  Since then, she’s sold an impressive number of albums independently and signed with Bad Boy.  In a rather bogus move, she rereleased her Metropolis album, adding two songs that have nothing to do with the theme of this concept album.  Hmm…

At any rate, the original material is still genius and exciting.  Enjoy the video to “Many Moons.”
