If you spread light, it’ll shine back your way. Join every Thursday and say it with words, pictures, videos, etc. Click here to learn all about it.

So, what happens by default?
- If you’re Oprah’s best friend, you get to host a TV show AND have a radio program. I don’t know about y’all but I think Gayle should have a back-up or two. I’m probably over-qualified actually but the key is to make yourself available to prime opportunities. I still wanna fill out that BFF application, Opes.
- Say, like, if your name’s North Korea and you’re investing all your money in nuclear weapons without supplying folks basics, such as food, at some point down the road, folk gonna get hungry. You’re then gonna need help from all the folk you’ve been trying to bully. It’s real unfortunate but that’s how life is, ain’t it, dumb ass?
- If you’re the kind of folk who’s holding one hand out and the other’s behind your back balled into a fist when somebody asks you for something, Karma’s gonna be your worst kinda friend. You’re gonna hate to see her coming but coming, she is and she’s gonna keep biting you in the ass ’til you get that life don’t revolve around you.
And this is your streaming light for the day, folks. Don’t say I never gave you nothing. (wink wink)

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?

He was a dumb ass kinda stupid. Went and stole that woman’s car soon after the double glass doors closed behind to get her evening meal in the grocery deli. Low down times stupid! Fiddled and faddled the wires and backed the ole Beamer from the space she’d parked it. Drove it clear outta the lot.
I stood behind the desk when he handed over the paperwork, trying to register the damn thing in his name! Next thing I know, the po-po comes busting in like we’re making a drug and cash exchange, yelling “Freeze! Put your goddamn hands up!”
