A Twinkle for A Wrinkle

A WRINKLE IN TIME: Meg, (her little brother) Charles Wallace, and Ms. WhatsIt

Pardon me, I didn’t catch your response to that last question of mine.
I was inquiring if you have had a chance to see A WRINKLE IN TIME?

I did, indeed – filled with curiosity and excite.
If fact, I was in the theater last Friday on opening night.

I took it all in; I did not fall asleep.
The film had a consistent and strong moral release.

I read a lot
into that 2-hour slot.

The film’s message encouraged me to hold-on and keep the faith.
It reminded me that The IT is seeking to penetrate my space.

I won’t let it.
As for the film? I won’t forget it.

Of the morals woven into Disney’s tale, I did see this:
To white men in America,’ they sent a message. (8).gif

Calvin and Dr. Alex Murray

The message was in the loving foundation that shaped and pulled the show through;
it said you can still head up the family heart-thumbnail– they just, may not look like you.’

It also showed us that The IT has no respect of person.
The IT is hate and if it resides in one’s heart, can become a community burden.

The tale showed us that when evolving and growing, change may hurt a little.
This was shown every time Meg would quantum leap – the transit scenes in the middle.

Did you see it? Did you see A WRINKLE IN TIME?
The vibrancy of color was newly on shine.

Wasn’t the brilliance of Ms. WhatsIt’s hair color simply divine?
Did you dig Charles Wallace? He represented innocence, intertwined.

Did you dig Calvin’s role? He journeyed with Charles and Meg.
Did you get that he was looking to belong when The IT got into his head?

We saw his abusive dad, instead of love. He had a family devoid of care.
It was that bit of insight that co-signed why Calvin was there.

Again, the film is about feeling needed, loved and included.
Love and faith can conquer all and rebuild whatever The IT has uprooted.

I loved the film. It was deep, it required me to think and yielded me hope.

Good morning to thee, I thought A WRINKLE IN TIME was dope.

Mother MAY I?

It’s never too late to get back to DOING YOU!
Perhaps your time has been misdirected away from your truths.

Whether your name is Tom, Dick, Harry, Mary, Lynn or Sue –
Whatever it is you want out of life – the possibilities lie within you!

Go get it and Get to it!
MAY is the perfect month to do it.

We’re already half way through MAY and opportunities are still nigh.
Encourage yourself to go “game stealth” in the month of Mother MAY I.
Give it a try.

Do you remember the old Mother MAY I game? Don’t you remember asking first?
Life is a lot like playing that game – cast your desires into the universe.

Whatever good it is that you want – I am sure that you can have.
Have faith, work hard and when it returns large – sit back and laugh.

Mother MAY I? Sure you can. All you have to do is ask it of yourself.
The universe is waiting to move on your command – Be it in love, happiness, wealth

You can have it. It is absolutely achievable if you more than try.
Give yourself permission to do what you feel in the month of Mother MAY I.

June is on the way and it is linked to no childhood game but the ‘junebug,’
I’m Qui
not much for the creepy crawly stuff, but certainly down to give today a hug.

Join me, often, in doing the same.
Life is fun and winnable, like that childhood game.

Soledad conducted an awesome 2-hour special: “ALMIGHTY DEBT” – Black In America” and Anderson Cooper tackled an even tougher topic: “BLACK OR WHITE” – Kids On Race”. Amazing stuff. Did you see them?

Lets start with BLACK OR WHITE: Kids on Race
This pretty girl hates the brown skin on her face:

So not much has changed in our childhood perceptions since the fifties
Though skin pride in the white community is admirable and positively nifty.

You can’t be mad at a race of people who love themselves: outwardly and within.
Thus it’s our duty to teach our kids to internally shine & POSITIVELY love their black skin.

When I was younger, my parents never discussed race
I remember the day I learned I had black on my face.
My sister told me — I was without a clue, unoblivious, and unaware.
I was drawn into what I saw through the televisions glare.

I really didn’t know I was “black” before that solitary day
and my dreams of being “Blondie” went brunett’ing away…

Who doesn’t want to be
“the positive person” they see on TV?
Who doesn’t want to be
negatively stereotyped like me?

Black people must early develop a resilient and thick skin.
Perhaps acknowledging origin and history is where our conversations should begin…

I sure hate that hate is so deep seeded over something so trivial as color.
I suppose the surface reveals that we relate to a color before we call ‘equal brother’.

Then there was Soledad O’brien covering a topic many haven’t mastered yet,
and that’s the overcoming of Blacks in America: ALMIGHTY DEBT.

There was a kid trying to get into college and scholarship winnings were rough
He managed to get a few federal granted funds, but obviously not enough.
Post his first year of college, he’ll be in a whopping $16K worth of debt
The price of his American Dream is just getting started — bet!

There was a married couple, who clawed their way to success on hard work & commissions
Whose accomplishments: cars and real estate loans are up for foreclosure mention.
They’re high school daughter seems to be unaware of current recession days.
She does $400 worth of shopping a month on a credit card her big brother pays.
Whilst Her parents unpaid mortgage phase is running out of time delayed…

The other couple in study was headed by a man – a former insurance co. CEO
who has found the last 2 unemployed years to be a test of his faith… like Job.
And so, the pastor of his church intervened (as he’s done for many others many times before),
and arranged a business networking thang’ to help the unemployed brother score.

The same pastor [Rev. Soaries] watches over the freshman and the commissioned workers as well,
He’s teaching his congregation to be debt free and shooting ‘the notion of drowning in it‘ – to hell.

It’s a logical sale: DON’T SPEND MORE THAN YOU MAKE.
God knows “WE” as a culture love a little “bling-bling” on our plate
Or in our grills
Ask Kanye & Paul Wall- for real. 🙂

Me? I pay my tithes. Me? I love my skin
Me? I’m Black in America and these forums are a great continuance of thier begin.
