Lighting Up the Blogosphere with Souldipper
There is little difference in people, but that little difference makes a big difference. That little difference is attitude.The big difference is whether it is positive or negative.

Guess what Rosie O’Donnell and I have in common, folks? Seeing her on Dr. Oz brought this to the forefront of my thoughts (No, I haven’t had Rosie on the brain). First, I have to break down our differences. Going about it this way makes it far more interesting than telling you straight out.
- I know that Rosie lives in California. I don’t exist to her.
- Rosie’s involved with a female she calls her partner. I’m not interested in that kinda partner.
- Rosie adopted her two kids. I had natural childbirth twice.
- Rosie talks too much. Well, that’s a little something we may have in common. (High five, Rosie)
- Rosie’s got a show on OWN. Nobody’s knocking on my door for nothing of the sort.
- Rosie was told she needs to get it together or end up a diabetic. Thankfully, that’s not an issue for me.
- Rosie’s had it out with The Donald. All I wanna do is feel his toupee to know how much hair spray’s on it.
- At this moment, Rosie’s probably talking about somebody else. She still doesn’t know I exist to even mention my name.
- Rosie has a tough I’ll-kick-your-ass-if-I-have-to disposition. That would really take away energy from my writing and painting, so generally, I’m pretty chill.
- So, what is it that I have in common with Rosie, folks? Rosie’s a visual artist and well, so am I.
Here are two pieces of her work. I’m sure she gets a pretty good chunk of change for her stuff. If you’re at all familiar with Jean-Michel Basquiat, you may find a common thread between their work. Although his work commands a much heftier price than Rosie’s and my work put together.
And did you know Madonna’s birthday is three days before mine? She’s older than me, of course but she was also friends with Basquiat. Small world, ain’t it? What celebrity do you have something in common with?
