Now, more than ever, I am elated when I safely reach my home door.
With the consistent climb in crime against black people...
men and women
I find it a blessing each time I am able to get home
without my name being the next
I always knew that my home was my safe place
It has just taken on a new meaning.
It is my prayer that you all get home safe tonight
And every night.
It's Summer in Brooklyn
and I'm loving every minute!
And of course I had to find great food!
This classy French restaurant had some soulful fried chicken!
Way to go: Le Petit Cafe!
I'll be back soon...
For more delicious eats and serene ambiance!
A trip to the Brooklyn Museum to see the highly raved about Jean-Michel Basquiat exhibit--
Basquiat: The Unknown Notebooks
Displayed are his notebook pages filled with
personal observations of his environment, sketches, wordplay &
Basquiat speaks about being an unknown striving artist for many years
to becoming a wealthy famous, sought after artist.
His downfall came as a result of depression & drug abuse
brought on by his quick rise to fame.
The popular statement is that Basquiat died as he was beginning to
'grapple with his contradictory existence'.
Before leaving the museum, I had to stop by the reinstallation
of the classic Egyptian galleries.
'Egypt Reborn: Art of Eternity' allows visitors to glimpse our heritage
in all its elegance, grandeur, and.... well.......
Being inches from genuine pieces of art from our history
automatically caused me to assume my
royal stance & opulence.
I recommend you take the trip to Brooklyn
& take in the knowledge oozing out of the Brooklyn Museum!
And if you need a cool place to eat 'post-museum'
Holla at me!
I've got a few suggestions!
It's been a while, right?!
Well, trust me, Royals--
I've missed blogging and picture-posting as well!
But in life, we have to take a break from the extra-curricular
and focus on the substantive.
Now that God has worked it all out for my good!..
Ever get the feeling that surrounding yourself in
positive vibes & vibrant colors
will lighten your mood?!
Here's to Shades of Neon!
Shoes- Lola Shoetique
Body- My Momma! LOL
Welcome me Back, Royals!

Definitely a trip I will never forget--
It's effects will affect my life for years to come.
