The Ferguson City Council convened for the first time since Mike Brown’s death, and proved that they literally give no fucks about what the community has to say. Added to their vague, paltry proposed reforms, seems real change will have to come in Ferguson via the ballot box. I don’t care where you live folks— let this be a lesson in voting/participating in your local elections and government! #staywoke #farfromover 

My people getting it!

these people are the real heroes. not the military, not politicians, not the Hollywood actors. they risked their lives and livelihoods to challenge white supremacy and institutionalized racism.

While working as an electrician at Windows on the World, in 2001, Konstantin Petrov documented the banalities of the World Trade Center. Nick Paumgarten writes:

“Inadvertently or not, he left behind a ghostly record, apparently the only one, of this strange twentieth-century aerie, as though he’d been sent here for this purpose alone.”

// Bourbon Banana Bread//

A new little project I’m starting. Thought I would share it with ya’ll if you are interested.


For my first recipe I thought I would do one that I already love -  this bourbon banana bread. Who doesn’t love banana bread? So many memories of my mom making early in the morning; the smell getting all of us kids up out of bed. It seems fitting to bake this for the start of the school year.

I have it baking in the oven right now, and I will post pictures of the finished product later (I may have forgotten to take pics of the process).

My house already smells like heaven…
