How Quickly Time Flies


How quickly time flies…

Seems like just yesterday I was rushing to the hospital to welcome my first born into the world, now here we are some 18 years later she’s leaving the nest and off to begin her college years at “The Mecca” Howard University.

Where did all the time go? It seems like we should still be laying on the floor with the lights off making shadow figures and listening to music, “she was raised on D’Angelo, Lauryn Hill, Raheem DeVaughn and well… good music!

 Whether we like it or not our kids will not remain children forever. Time will pass, milestones will pile up and if we as parents have done our job, they will grow into young adults and move forth to claim their place in this world.

Don’t get me wrong… I will definitely miss her, but I’m excited for her to start the next chapter in her life.

I have invited by my daughter “AND afropunk contributor” to attend afropunk  in Brooklyn on August 27-28 so I’ll be seeing her soon so we’ll get a chance to hear good music, vibe with other creative people and more importantly continue to cement our bond. 

Happy Father’s Day

I miss my dad every day BUT even more so on days like this… I usually spend time looking back at moments that made me laugh or picturing him under the hood of a car… ┬áMy father wasn’t perfect by any stretch of the imagination but he was there, he sacrificed and worked hard to be the best father he could be. I miss you dad & I love you! Happy Father’s Day!
