The Breaks of it All


Peace & Grace my lovely and precious ones…

So, I got to thinking on my way to work of the rewind of my past two weeks.  Oh my gosh, they were everything categorized as turbulent with a gust of winds blowing me from Fahrenheit’s to freezing.  But it was on my way to town that the classic song by Kurtis Blow, “the breaks” came on.  I am rising along the long winding road in the misty morning and as many times as I have heard this song, this song was like a hallelujah moment.  We are going to past through some roads, tunnels, and bridges that have some unpredicted weather outcomes, but no matter what, as long as you continue to ride or stride, or tread, you will eventually get to the other side.  Through the wind rain, traffic jams, and bumpy road and endless under construction signs that appear, you have to simply allow some trials to roll off your back like a duck as the elders say.  ‘These” as the songs says – are the breaks…  But you got to find the beat and keep moving.  I admit, finding the tempo was a tedium and tireless journey for me past few weeks, but thankfully I can truly admit that these are the breaks. Two of my sista-friends reminded me during one of our interFREINDtions that even though we bend, we actually will not break.  We may feel brittle and feeble and down trodden, but we do arrive to resilience eventually.  It is amazing that even though we spend hard earned dollars to pay expenses for therapy sessions for an enlightening insight of our lives, we sometimes are our own therapist to each other.  Guess that is the blessing in communing in truth.  The facts of life my dear ones, is to simply take all the blends and deal with it and determine your amounts to find balance.

Love & Blessings to you, you, you and you… Monique “1MOpoeticSOUL” D.



Soul’s Wind Worths


Peace & Blessings to each of you my lovely and wonderful ones….

While traveling in the thickest of morning dew smog this morning, it got me to thinking.  NO matter how thick that smog is, it is but, mere drops of dew. You aren’t aware of what is ahead until you approach it.  Unable to see and only feeling your way through one must be quite cautious while you tread or travel.  But it got me to thinking how adversity can sometimes show up on the scene.  Sometimes there are warning signs and other times you haven’t a clue of what will appear or occur until arriving on the scene.  But it is the warrior instinct within, that you must activate.  All that which you have been trained and prepped for battle and conflict you must rely on that knowledge.  Cautious and conscious efforts as you tread lightly, but firmly with the faith, favor and fortitude of the spirit that dwell within.  Also with the courage that you sometimes must be reminded of by others that you feel at times has left your being.  Obstacles don’t triumph faith, it presents opposition and road blocks, but faith and the belief that you have and spirit you exude when you activate that power within is what shall forever win the toughest, meanest and ugliest of battles.  Shields, armor, proper footgear along with crown coverings of your mind and overall individual being is in a battle of a lifetime to fight for your rites as soul heir to your own destiny and fate.  No dictatorship can determine your destiny.  Fly the flight of favor.

Love & Blessings to you, you and you…

Mirroring Motives



Peace & Grace to you My Beautiful & Lovely Ones….

Drama class and big top tents hosting circus acts are not the only venues of many faces.  Happy faces, sad faces, confused faces, angry faces, blah faces, and well you get the picture… I got to thinking about your circles of friends and family.  Me, myself, I am forever fine tuning my circle and seems like the older I get, the smaller my circle becomes.  But my wisdom makes my circle more tightly intricate woven with each stitch and purpose in my life.  And through the years or as the world has and will forever continue to turn the many faces that folks show to you and reveal more clearly who they truly are becomes quite evident.  I got to thinking about the mirrors in the circus fun houses.  As a child it’s fun and entertaining but as an adult the irony of those same mirrors are the perplex spirits of those folks elude through the shapes, sizes and images just as that mirror, irregular not unique.  As you stroll along this big tent of life that walk can be filled with side show oddities, attractions of life altering abilities and talents.  Be aware though of the clowns and costume attraction.  Smiles are not always those that are sincere and with greetings and the costumes hide the truth temporary.  Stay in tune and fine tune your circles and environments in which you mingle.  Love & Blessings to you, you, you and you.

Dancing To The Drum~ Your Tune



Peace & & Grace to each of you my Lovely  Shugas.

We all have at one time or another heard the saying, “ she/he moves to the beat of his/her own drum”.  Yes, yes of course you have.  It can san sometimes come from a certain perspective depending on the specificity of the example being discussed.  But it is in fact quite very very true my dear.  Some persons have great rhythm and some lack it while some it comes and goes depending upon the drummer and the quality of the percussion, metaphorically speaking.  However, we all step to a different beat and some may step with a band, some may step with just a piano and bass accompanying them.  But regardless when you find your true tune, you carefully just glide to a tempo that flows with your specific element at the time.   So you wonder, “my oh my” what am I saying, as your eyes scroll these words.  Haha… Shuga you methodology of life, dealing and just simply being is custom made, tailored to what works for you… Doesn’t matter how, as long as your viability is sustained and you are continually ingesting peace and understanding.  Most of all comfortably in the you that resides in the mass od clay the Most High molded and continues to structure.  Even though your composition may be incredibly different does not mean, it’s not a masterpiece.  Love & Blessings to you, you , you and you.
