Create & Be a Blessing!

For the next few months, I will choose a card from the African American Tarot deck as a prompt for my blog posts. Let’s see what spiritual insight I come up with!

Ace of Wands + 6 of Pentacles

There is a spark of new creative energy entering your sphere of influence. Do you feel it? As summer approaches and the sun graces us with more of its presence we will be filled with this energy. What do you intend to create as a result? We mustn't squander this gift when it presents itself. There must be something you’ve been wanting to create. What lingers inside that needs to be released? What will you give birth to at this time? The 6 of Pentacles says that whatever you give birth to will be a blessing to yourself and others. Your creation will be a service to yourself and others. Do not delay.

Imagine if Barack Obama had ignored his political inclinations. Imagine if Oprah had decided to stay in Mississippi. Imagine if (insert your name here) ignored his/her dreams and never created (that thing). You have come with a purpose. You have come with a mission. Create and be a blessing!

Red Hook Poetry Expo

I was ecstatic when I received notice that I had won the Safe in the City Grant! I read through the details and learned that I would be granted $1000 to host my event The Red Hook Poetry Expo. The Expo would provide a safe space for Red Hook residents to share their poetry, prose, and words of inspiration. It would also double as a launch event for my book of poetry, Reflections!

After weeks of planning and preparation, the day had come. I stood in the event space, nervous yet hopeful. In all about 30 people showed up. It was a blessing to look out into the audience and see familiar faces and loved ones. 

The event started with a welcoming address and featured poets. We then moved on to the open mic and closed with a Soul Train line. The event, the people, the feel, was magical. 

I am grateful!
