The 48 hours of loveliness has come and gone. Where do I start? So many beautiful
Saturday began with going with BK to the YMWCA. There I decided that I
was going to make this workout count, and I did. So much so that we were both
exhausted in the middle of the day. This was okay because I
knew that the people would be in and out and all around. The plan? To have
everyone from the NYC area make their way from New York to Newark.
After arriving fashionably late, BK, Marc, Chip and Ewedontno’s guest were
greeted by the irreverent Kevin
R. Scott, the illustrious Bejata,
and the awesome
Anzi. However, Ms. Lynne
D. Johnson and Ronn Taylor were unable to make it, and we had to carry on.
When I talk about these people, and call them minor deities, I really mean
it. I mean, how else are you gonna meet really good people- people that are
willing to make the trek no matter what? The highlights of the evening include:
Kelis – I had to spread the love of Wanderland across the sphere. I’ll be waiting
for a .daily review.
Pictures – those pictures are wonderful. Since I left my camera on the floor
of DIC, I had to borrow Ewedontno’s. On top of that, I had to make sure that
Kev reviewed and signed off every single photo. Remember, this is one handsome
man. As such, you must always be prepared to take at least 3 photographs, and
prepared to have them review and sign off on them.
However, there were little wrinkles in paradise. It seems that Ronn and Lynne
were unable to make it across the river. Never to fear, that’s when Sunday became
Donald made sure that we were all coordinated and ready to go across the river
to meet up at Day-O for brunch. Brunch became more like a late lunch, as we
agreed to eat at three. Insert Ronn and Lynne. This is how the day shaped up:
The Blog Body Shop and how
MJ has the supreme skills. No doubt.
Anitra’s wondeful perspective, Novarius
Slim, Anfanee, and Karsh. I call them
my little brothers and sisters, even though most of them are bigger than I.
Negro? Please. The jury has come to a decision that he is one cool brother.
George. Negrophile. A special kinda guy. Just ask, well, anyone.
Lisa. Esotericsoul. She,
along with MJ, is next on my travel journeys.
Renaissance Sistah. People were a little worried, but she’s back.
Some of the people that also came up in conversation include (and
if I miss a name): Raven, Steven
Fullwood, Christopher, Heru Khuti, Soul
Man, J-Notes, and many many others.
Lynne D. Johnson’s vibe. Let’s say it again with feeling. Lynne. D. Johnson.
Now don’t you feel a little bit better?
Oh yes, be sure to ask her about Road Rage.
Ronn Taylor. You know it’s good to see Ronn, despite not having a camera to take
a photograph. I finally got to see Mr. Taylor and understand that brain of his.
Kev. If you haven’t met .daily yet then I
you take the time and do so.
He’s got so much of an artistic glow about him.
As usual, I feel like there’s a lot of things I could be doing, like Popmatters,
Apple Store (ahem),
more working out and more things at work that pertain to work, but for 48 hours,
I got to realize that all of the madness has a nice earthy quality to it, and
I’m down with that.
