Every now and then, I think it’s important to reintroduce myself. You know, I’m sitting behind the screen running my mouth, I can’t forget my southern hospitality by not welcoming you to my page, blog or however you reference it. The first time, I introduced myself in the way of letting you peek into my studio via a video. I couldn’t do that today. I have a small mess going on. Not big but I can’t let company in there at the moment.
Now, apparently, I think this photo was okay enough to put here. I absolutely hate taking pictures but I asked my nephew, who’s tall as all get out with his still growing self, to snap a photo of his favorite auntie. He was laughing ’cause that’s what he does, I guess. Not on account of me looking funny. Or do I?…Watcha mouth now.
I once told Little Totsy I was gonna put a video here and since she said, “Please, don’t,” I decided against it. I don’t know why she’d say sucha thing. I was gonna be good. Or maybe I wasn’t. I can’t remember anymore. Anyhow, I don’t smoke like the impression I’m giving in my avatar. I just think she’s way cooler than me and it’s not like it’s hard to be way cooler than me anyhow. Not that it matters.
But enough talk about me. I thought while having this discussion about race, now would be an appropriate time to acknowledge the true owners of this land we call ours. It’s always on my mind, especially as we engage in this discussion, which makes me sad to think how we’ve staked claim to it when millions of Native Americans were wiped out and sequestered on reservations as though they were sub-human. It was beyond criminal.
As a lover of all music…well, not opera, I tried but it didn’t work out, I hope you enjoy the video. Join me again for Race 2012 tomorrow. I look forward to hearing from you.
