when you wish for a passionate woman
you are not only wishing
for the fire in her belly
you are wishing
for the wounds that stoked the flames
and the anger that screams
from the pain of her past 
when you wish for a passionate woman
you wish for the tenderness of her skin
the fragile depths of her heart
but you are wishing too
for the landslide that will engulf you
if are careless
thoughtless
cold
lack-lustre with your love

when you wish for a passionate woman
you wish for independence and resilience
of course
but you are wishing
for the walls that she built to save herself
and the dirt of the ashes
that she fearlessly rose from

when you wish for a passionate woman
you wish for sensuality and fluidity
in body and mind
but you wish too for the waves of emotion that wash through her
endlessly
you wish for the hailstorm of tears
and the river of feeling
being
knowing
that guide her every movement
and each and every choice

when you wish for a passionate woman
you wish for explosions, fireworks
electricity –
oh but you are wishing
for the almighty thunderclaps
demanding that you live
breathe
bleed
presence and trust:
that you are true to your word

when you wish for a passionate woman
you wish for her opinion
her wisdom
the truth that spills from her lips
but you are wishing for the howls
of the wild, wild woman before you
and she does not
will not
cloud her words
with sugar
or honey
no
she will devour your sentences
and spit out the bones of your lies

when you wish for a passionate woman
you are wishing for a woman who is whole
and full
make no mistake
she is entirely complete
she is kind
but she is fire
when you wish for a passionate woman
wish hard and wish true
but please know
she will not stand
for a fair-weather love
a weak love
a false love
a love
that holds only half of her heart

when you wish for a passionate woman
she will give you
all of her
and all that she asks
is that you hold
all of her too

  • Comme j’ai lu quelque part aujourd’hui, prendre soin de soi ce n’est pas juste aller au spa ou s’offrir un massage, ou encore un bon restaurant, c’est aussi savoir déconnecter, décrocher, fermer son téléphone et les réseaux sociaux quelque temps et reconnecter à l’Essentiel; prendre une marche, s’autoriser à gravir des sommets et au final, à souffler. 🍃❄️
{Le froid canadien m’a bien giflé mais ça va.}

  • B. Smith was one of the nicest person I have ever met. I had lived in midtown; around the corner from her restaurant. She was a classy woman; always with her beautiful smile and pleasant conversation. Before she became public with her illness my daughter had the opportunity to attend B. Smith restuarant. My daughter asked her if she could have two servings of collard greens; instead of mac and cheese. B. Smith went into kitchen to make sure Imani got what she want. She will greatly be missed; one of a kind.

  • Take a Break
_____________

We have been doing the work.
All by ourselves it didn't work.
Now let Jesus do the work.
And you be in His rest and twerk.
In His praise as He does the work.
Your feet on your shamers neck.
As they go bezerk.
For your Victory make them jerk.
For Christ is at work.

When you hold Him at His Word.
You fly higher than a bird.
Faith will make you weird.
As the world will call you that word.
Rejoice for God heard.
Your request before said.
By you, He is His Word.
You're outstanding in His Word.
A star not of this world.
For you're born of His word.
Healing is your bread.
For He is your life's bread.
Believe what He said.
For He is your Head.
And we His body ain't dead.
Fire is His blood not red.

  • The Truly Devious series is truly one of the best Mystery/Detective series I've ever read, since Agatha Christie.. .
.
.
.Synopsis 🔍
Ellingham Academy is a famous private school in Vermont for the brightest thinkers, inventors, and artists. It was founded by Albert Ellingham, an early twentieth century tycoon, who wanted to make a wonderful place full of riddles, twisting pathways, and gardens. "A place," he said, "where learning is a game." Shortly after the school opened, his wife and daughter were kidnapped. The only real clue was a mocking riddle listing methods of murder, signed with the frightening pseudonym "Truly, Devious." It became one of the great unsolved crimes of American history.

True-crime aficionado Stevie Bell is set to begin her first year at Ellingham Academy, and she has an ambitious plan: She will solve this cold case. That is, she will solve the case when she gets a grip on her demanding new school life and her housemates: the inventor, the novelist, the actor, the artist, and the jokester. But something strange is happening. Truly Devious makes a surprise return, and death revisits Ellingham Academy. The past has crawled out of its grave. Someone has gotten away with murder. .
