“Quincy” 🎶That’s the dude…🎶 – Passion & Purpose

I had been eagerly awaiting the Quincy Jones documentary “Quincy” to release on Netflix. That Quincy Jones is a beautiful and incredible man. An absolute musical genius. His spirit has and continues to touch so much and so many. Suave. Sexy. Charming. Humorous. Talented. Creative. Magical. Trailblazer. Musical Genre Transcending. Intelligent. Friend and mentor to many. Family man. Collaborator. HUMAN! You could feel the essence of a man in him sprinkled with a nice dose of grace, sensitivity, and compassion. But, man did he have nine lives as he went through some ISH!!!

A bruised heart, yet pure heart. Because, the interesting thing is that even in his 80s, he’s still dealing with his mother and father issues. Very much like many of us. He however has seemingly always been in tune to the issues and seeking ways to heal from them.

The moment in the documentary that really touched me was the rehearsal for The Museum (because in my opinion you don’t have to say the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History & Culture) opening and Chloe x Halle were rehearsing. The gratitude and humbleness they displayed and how Quincy cheered them on was so beautiful, particularly in bridging the age gap. Such a pure heart. Always an inspiration with providing opportunities for many to shine and live out their desires and dreams, while living out his SoulFULL Purpose. Living, evolving and rebirthing from a place of divine creativity and expression. Ways of being we can all aspire to BE, because we ALL have that “THING!” Our/Your abundantly blessed SoulFULL Purpose.

“Quincy” is A MUST watch as it’s not just about the musical genius and all the accolades, but also about his humanness as a loving being. Enjoy! Live! Love! Create!

G.O.A.T. – Quincy touched so much. So many ah ha moments here.

A Yummylicious Moment in Honor Of Ron “MF” Davis – The Last Supper

This is in honor of our last supper of “Shepherds Pie”. This past week when dining with my dear friend Dereine at the Clyde’s in Columbia, MD, I of course ordered not only the “Shepherds Pie” but it was “LOBSTER Shepherds Pie”. And, it was tasty and flavorful with delicious morsels of lobster.

Thank you Ron for continuing to ride with me, especially now as my Gangsta Angel. 🎶You are always on my miiiiiiinnd. You are always on my mind.🎶 You continue to be missed for your booming yet tender voice, hearty laugh, hugs, nature hikes, words of wisdom, f*k em I got your back times, and the comfort I often long to hear. I am often comforted and thankful for the many moments where all of those loving treasures still fill my heart and I can hear and feel today. I continue to miss you so much my love. But, we out here doing the dayum thing and “Living Out Loud!” Kathryn LIVES! Ron LIVES! We ALL LIVE!

And, can we get a “HUUUUUU… U KNOW!” for our brother Ron as we enter Howard University’s Homecoming Week.

The Shepherds Pie Backstory: Ron called me one night on my way home from work (as we often did) and invited me over for Shepherds Pie. I accepted the invitation without hesitation because I hadn’t seen his face in a minute. Plus, it’s food. I was amazed that when prepping he was putting the kitchen sink in the pie. All types of cheese, meats, vegetables… By the time it was said and done that joint was an overflowing and bubbly hot dish of savory deliciousness. It was the most amazing Shepherds Pie I’ve had to date. (That lobster one was a close second.) If you didn’t know, Ron was a pretty good cook. It was fun in recent conversations, hearing him talk about cooking shows and him wanting to flex his chef muscle. He did that. I was impressed.

That night was also a concern as Ron was not doing well at all. He was having to take breaks in between prepping, with me and Sonia stepping in as his Sous Chefs. I spent the night as not to interrupt our connecting and I knew he’d like that with talking, laughing, and dozing off in the basement together. However, I didn’t miss the opportunity to strongly urge him to go to the doctor (as others were also). The next morning I awoke to feeling abundantly grateful for the time to love up on my friend and be loved up on and departed with the obligatory leftovers in hand. You know the next day those seasonings had marinated and honey… My palate is like “YAAAASSSSS” right now with remembering. That day Ron did go to the doctor which led to his being admitted to the hospital where he some time later transitioned.

I’m so grateful to spirit for so many reasons with guiding me and Ron to connect that night. I’m grateful he had that last occasion to create a delicious masterpiece on this here earth. I’m grateful that when in a split second I think to call you still to this day, I feel your presence sitting (with your legs crossed as if sitting on the floor) in the seat right next to me in my car. I’m thankful and blessed to have this memory and other yummylicious ways of remembering and honoring my dear friend who I continue to miss immensely. We can always explore loving and special ways to remember, honor, and bring into the space our ancestors. Remember that nothing is too big or too small. One of mine is honoring my dear friend by ordering Shepherds Pie whenever I see it on a menu. Humph! I need to learn how to make it though. With that said, Bon Appetit! And, Cheers! #BeDoLove #BeDoLoveSAVOR #Yummyliciousness #IDineToSavorAndWriteAboutIt #BirthAndLiveYourSOULfullPurpose #FindYourZen

The Masterpiece in YOU

I have a tendency to allow life, pain, and Ego to take control of the wheel. Me losing sight of who I am. What I love. And, what feeds and nourishes me. The frequency of my “Love Vortex” and mojo not operating at full power. Can I get a HELLO?!?!

Last night I experienced the most amazing time at the Sip & Paint party led by Pam Oliver Sip & Paint. Notice “Sip” comes before “Paint”. Priorities. (hiccup). Thanks so much to Cathy and Angela for hosting a wonderful evening of creativity, fun, food, libations, and energy filled (That hookah room convo was intense yet fun tho. Cough. Cough.) connection.

I am so grateful for the abundant ways in which this night fed me in a healthy way emotionally, mentally, and spiritually. Some of us were having a conversation that the older we’re getting, the more introvert we’re becoming. People see me moving about in the world and have a perception that I’m on nonstop. As an extrovert-introvert, it’s all perception because folks would be surprised how much time I spend in my home, especially Friday nights and Saturday days. This is as authentic and genuine connections have become more important than mindless hangouts (while those can serve their purpose too). This Saturday was no different as I honed in my professional chill and required me to motivate myself to go out to get some pre-hurricane Florence air and connect.

What I had to remind self is that the opportunity to be creative allows me to not take life so darn serious. To not allow the pain and trauma of my life’s experiences lead me on my daily walk. However, instead welcome and allow the “New Moment! New Opportunity” joys of life to command their rightful, affirming and healing position at the forefront of my heart and spirit. So off I went.

The moment I walked into Cat’s beautiful home and laid my eyes on the nearly 20 stations set up with easels, aprons, brushes, and canvases, my spirit said “YIPPPPEEEE”! We had two projects to choose from. They were “Wine for Two” or “Walk by Faith”. Spirit led me to “Walk by Faith”. Faith being a necessary DNA component of my life. Especially now. It’s about believing. It’s about an all-knowing that ALL things are possible. Especially those that speak through the soul pertaining to passion and purpose. I remember a quote from Robin Roberts that says “When fear knocks, let faith open the door.” As an homage to the wine project and removing fear, I indulged by sipping on a tasty Red Zinfindel. My creative juices thanked me. (hiccup) However, presencing faith was the order of the night.

At the designated time and after some important sipping, I took my position at my station. The creative juices began flowing with each thought of color complimenting selections. What color for my shoes? How can I make the shoes pop based on the background color? This process attracted and elevated the Kathryn, who loves and knows what she likes, but welcomes being open to the colorful palettes of life. With each stroke of paint to canvas, I was consciously and subconsciously reminded to be present and not allow myself to be consumed by the heaviness of life. With each stroke of paint to canvas, the energy flowed from the canvas through my fingers to my wanting to be loved up on heart. Me exhaling what doesn’t serve me and inhaling calm, healing, peace, joy, confidence, and fun.

The beauty of the experience is, the night ended with not just a masterpiece on canvas, but with an all-knowing that I am a wonderfully made masterpiece. Just like I regrouped when I didn’t like a color I used, my masterpiece of self is ever evolving. I get to have do overs. I get to reinvent myself. I get to make mistakes. Regrouping, refocusing, reinventing, and Rebirthing as I pause, reflect, forgive, learn, grow, and choose a more appropriate palette 🎨 for my life’s journey. With self-care and self-love leading the way to self-worth as my lifeline.

So what are your zen and juicy sweet spots? Do you allow them to grow, breathe, heal, and bring life to YOU? What makes you salivate and ignites a bright glowing flame in you? What’s fun and creates a smile on your face, heart and belly when you think about it and experience it? Makes you feel alive? And, in turn, that “thing” providing comfort and joy to others? Dancing? Traveling? Writing? Landscaping? Chefing? Entertaining? Cleaning? Painting? Teaching? Knitting? Designing? Healing? Your life’s work? What is it for you that you have an insatiable craving to do and experience? And, when I say experience, I mean not in the doingness, but in the feeling and being present to the juiciness and gift it brings to you and others. Whatever it is for you in terms of extracurricular and/or professionally, unleash it and let it breathe with seizing the time for exploration.

Perhaps it’s an opportunity to honor your family who has passed down a tradition and talent to you. One you just can’t get out of your mind because your soul keeps nudging you. Hey, you? Wake up! Whatever that “thing” (or “things”) is for you, find some time in your life to tap into it. It could be your career path or it could be something you would enjoy doing during your free time if only for an hour each week. It’s those God given gifts and talents that deserve your attention. That will give you purpose, life, and have you be and feel FRRREEEEEE!!!

I hope and pray that you create the time to bring to life the magical, wondrous, vibrant, and colorful palettes of your beautiful life with love, fun, connection, and laughter. What you love with love. It sure does have a way of soothing, healing, and providing JOY to yourself and other love beings! Walk with an open heart and spirit. Walk with love. Walk with gratitude. Walk with confidence. With with your Goddess and God swaggalicous walk. But, especially “Walk by Faith” in to the Masterpiece of YOU! Exhale! Breathe! Enjoy! Love! Namaste! #BeDoLove #BeDoLoveCREATE #FindYourZen #HealingEqualsFreedom #BirthAndLiveYourSOULfullPurpose #JuicySweetSpot #SuperSoulSunday

Morning Pop Talk – Monkey’s Climb

Pop: How scared do you think your president is?

Me: Maaaaan, I don’t know.

Pop: He’s scared.

Me: What do you think he’s most scared about?

Pop: Because he was doing something in Russia (This has been Pop’s belief since day one and before) that he had no business doing. Probably at the time when they were a big enemy. He’s acting like an agent. And, that meeting he had with “P”.

Me: Yeah, we really don’t know what they talked about.

Pop: And, then he came back (pop talking in a mocking whining voice) talking about Russia didn’t do anything in the election.

Pop: (in an excited voice) I see Florida is going to have a first black governor (Andrew Gillum just won the Democratic primary). Talking about they don’t want a black guy to “monkey this up”. Don’t they know monkey’s climb. Hahahahaha…

And, there you have it. See how Pop turned that around to work in our favor? Monkeys do climb. And, we will always be faced with moments where we get to take our power back. As long as you/I believe and keep the faith we/I will continue to climb on and persevere to victory, peace, love, joy, prosperity, good health and whatever else our hearts desire. Pray-fully with more days of it being effortless and with ease.

With that in mind, what are your desires? Your path? Your purpose? Your unfulfilled “sweet spots”? That thing(s) that never leaves you and speaks through your soul and is constantly buzzing in your ear saying “HELLO! HELLO! It’s time to…”. “THE VOICE” letting you know I’m not going to stop communicating with you until you do something about IT.

“YOUR” mountaintop (inspired by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.) awaits YOU love! Your promise land could be only a matter of one step away. You can do it. Step! Climb! Soar!

Enjoy this beautiful day and upcoming holiday weekend lovelies.

And, in the words of Pop, “Have a good day. Be safe. Don’t work too hard. Love!” Peace! #BeDoLove #MorningPopTalk #FindYourZen #BirthAndLiveYourSoulFULLPurpose

When I Chef, I Am Love

As a lover of food I have no problem with dining out. I take great pleasure and pride in sourcing amazing restaurant experiences. However, as someone who loves to cook, I don’t do it much except when I’m in a relationship. Whose out there said “oh, it’s just me so I’ll grab something”?

I’ve been taking time to chef more. Whether for me, family (I visited Brooklyn in June and I cooked more during my time there than I had in the past, I don’t know how many years.) or inviting friends over. Chefing is my happy place. My sweet spot. My juicy spot. My zen. And, my spirit takes great delight and gratitude in the preparation and creativity of it all with love. Experiencing my people as they take in the love that went into it and the flavors that marinate into their palates is healing and fun for me and I hope the same for them. The eye rolling back is a sign. Lol

This week in yummyliciousness news. Earlier this week I had some friends over. Utilizing what was in my cabinet and fridge was a win. I seasoned the shrimp to include Citrus Ginger Powder. And, sautéed it with Mango Chutney (Stonewall Kitchen is the devil) that was a random buy some time ago and had no clue what I was going to do with it or how it tasted (nice Indian flavor). Roasted the Brussel Sprouts with Mango & Passionfruit Balsamic Vinegar and Turkey Bacon (being nice because my friend Ardella doesn’t eat pork). And, you can’t go wrong with a box of Goya rice. HOOOONEY!!! The balance of savory and sweet was delicious. And, after the leftover shrimp marinated in it all, the next day it was… Humph! 😍

Hopefully today, tomorrow, this week, for your life you’ll find the time to tap into those people, places, things, and/or experiences that feed your spirit with healing, love, and fun. There’s nothing too big or too small for your self-care. Enjoy! Peace! #BeDoLove #BeDoLoveCREATE #BeDoLoveSAVOR #Yummyliciousness #IChefToHealDelightAndWriteAboutIt #FindYourZen

PS: The Pineapple (fresh cut) Cadillac Margaritas were something special. Hiccup!

PSS: If you live in the DMV area there is a woman black-owned spice shop in Takoma Park called The Spice Suite run by Angel. It’s a couple of doors down from Takoma Station. The shop is amazing. That’s where I purchased the Citrus Ginger Power and the Mango & Passionfruit Balsamic Vinegar. She also sells online. And, you can find her on Facebook and Instagram. Enjoy!
