Zoom "Men spoke of how the heart broke up, but never spoke of how the soul hung speechless in the pause, the void, the terror between the living and the dead; how, all garments rent and cast aside, the naked soul passed over the very mouth of Hell. Once there, there was no turning back; once there, the soul remembered, though the heart sometimes forgot. For the world called to the heart, which stammered to reply; life, and love, and revelry, and, most falsely, hope, called the forgetful, the human heart. Only the soul, obsessed with the journey it had made, and had still to make, pursued its mysterious and dreadful end; and carried, heavy with weeping and bitterness, the heart along."

Zoom Sometimes, I just be doing regular, ol’ Mel-type shit like eating a banana pancake, drinking coffee, and reading James Baldwin, and I think, “that would make a dope picture.”

Zoom #100HappyDays DAY 100! I spent the day with my prophyte Charlenette, who trusts me enough to help her with her book. If you know the two of us, you know we had a good time. She even cooked and we had Nothing Bundt Cake. I got that good re-up on Ruby Woo, and saw my alumnae chapter sorors at a convention planning meeting. It was a great day and this experiment was a great experience. The 100 Days of Happiness project really shifts your focus. Instead of finding things to be complain about or simply existing, you look for happiness in each day, and, if need be, create your own happiness. I feel like a happier person and I really have a whole new perspective on life. So much so, I’ve decided to write my moments of happiness in a planner each day. If anyone is in need of a reset, a change in perspective, or a boost in your spirits, I challenge you to be happy for 100 days!
