A place to connect the visuals to the words that form the crazy that is my existence.

This #MOBETTAWU show is the best thing that’s happened to my month. I laughed. I cried. I sang along. 

All praise to the sisters and the Gods - @ThomasAHarden @TreasureKyn @amandaseales @Bluesilvercg for making it happen. 

P. S. I like it raw.

This is my moment. The future is mine. The goal is within reach. All I have to do is make the right decisions and surround myself with the right people. My tomorrows will be based on the decisions I make today and that weight, though heavy, is one I’m ready to take on. I have a big announcement coming. I hope you’ll all support the decisions I’ve made for me and those I hold most dear. 

Stay tuned.

That awkward moment when Facebook tries to send you subliminal messages first thing in the morning. Hi, Eden. #EnjoyTheSeconds

NYC - Rio for the World Cup final and my boy’s wedding. So close. So far. 97 thug tears were just shed.

You can’t take Haitians or Latinos anywhere. Once they hear that cha cha cha boom beat they don’t know what to do with themselves. LOL #bluesmokeefx

Party done. Goodbye, South Africa. 

Thank you for giving me one of the most memorable birthdays ever.

From being chased by lions, (no real talk, we got chased by lions, there’s video) to getting our hubcap jacked (1. Who still has hubcaps? 2. Who steals a hubcap?!). From mountain tops to beachfronts. From drinking 20 bottles of champagne on our birthday on a “boat” in the middle of a mall (thanx again for that @suaveofnitelife) to fighting with make believe parking attendants about their tip. From hours of intense discussions about apartheid, capitalism vs socialism, feminism vs tradition vs culture, crying fathers vs lack of fathers, gentrification, american politics vs South African politics and both of their short comings, Johannesburg vs Cape Town vs johannesburg vs Brooklyn,  misconceptions by Africans of African Americans and vice versa to who has the best fried chicken - KFC or chicken lickin.  You lived up to than surpassed each and every expectation I had of you. 

Though this trip was filled with the welcoming energy of many amazing souls who opened up their hearts and country to us, this trip would not have been possible without our inside woman - our landlord, guide, getaway driver, gps, bottle popper, ex pat, and most importantly my birthday twin, Stephanie (@connervarin) O’Connar. Thank you for doing everything in your power to make this trip as amazing as it was. You are appreciated and loved. 

Special shoutout to a few of the many that added to the greatness of this trip - @shailatyler @nam7 @iamphil84 @msbtng @ar_sugal @missmillib @donkeychildprojects @eatingthroughmyworld @internationalswagger  @taffitime @oakademy  @leeursus @kurtorderson @IAMTHESUMMIT and the many many more not listed. 


We’ll be back.

Congratulations to my homie @taffitime on her engagement. Glad we had the pleasure of spending some time with you and some other amazing folks in Cape Town a mere few hours before the big proposal.

@Eatingthroughmyworld, I knew South Africa was your town, but I didn’t know they even named streets in your honor. You fancy.
