Sankofa Mesan Entry #9: "Crowned"
This is a 9 part journal series called, “Sankofa Mesan,” or Nine Caravans. It documents divine moments that took place at Sankofa: The Caravan to the Ancestors, hosted by the Houston Chapter of NBUF (National Black United Front). Since Sankofa means “to go back,” this series begins with my diary entry from the most recent, 2021, and ends with the diary of the very first time I attended in 2010.
The Graveyard Smash Challenge... My Way!
Halloween is one of many festivities in which we celebrate life, based on a certain tradition. We all know a party isn’t a party without great music that fits the occasion. In this case, we’re talking about Halloween. Scary energy, right? It invokes the supernatural, the spiritually unknown...the dark side, they call it. We celebrate ghosts, cemeteries, and spirits that live in carved pumpkins. Black cats are more ominous now than any other time of year, yet they still make a fine costume idea. Many people visit other aspects of themselves through costumes and costume parties, which brings me back to the subject at hand. Music that fits the occasion. The songs in my Graveyard Smash playlist address all kinds of scary, from paranormal fear factors to flat-out-scary people. It is also a collective of old skool, throwback spooky jams that stir the mystery within as you dance. Enjoy more about them below..
Wednesdays on The Mothership
Wednesdays on The Mothership In ancient times, the day began at sundown, as dusk and dawn are but a reflection of the other. At this moment in my life, I am enjoying the realignment with the ancient ways in all that I do. My life only sees creation and divination between visitors, the quasars and I speak much.
