As I lie in my bed
My thoughts turn to you.
I think of the time
We spent together
And how our love grew.
I miss your voice
As it speaks my name.
I miss your eyes
And how they burn
With a passionate flame.
I want to feel your breath
On my naked skin.
And the touch of your hand
so tender -
Which ignite the fires within.
My mouth deeply hungers
For the sweetness of your lips.
My body craves your touch
As you explore me
With your fingertips.
I want to feel the heat
As the passion quickly builds.
Your caresses and your kisses
Make it easy
For my body and soul to yield.
I want to feel the pleasure
As we feed our lusts and desires.
Your flesh and mine
Burning hot with passion's fire.
Only you can satisfy
And bring me to ecstasy.
Only you can fulfill
My deepest desire
And my midnight fantasy.

Breast cancer screening saves lives.
Cancer can strike anywhere in the breast – the milk glands, the milk ducts or in the connective tissue. In cancer, cells grow out of control. Healthy lifestyle choices, knowing your body and your family history, and getting regular mammograms lessens opportunity for cancer to develop or escape early detection.
The American Cancer Society says although African American women get breast cancer less often than other races, it is diagnosed at more advanced stages and can be more aggressive and more difficult to treat.
Currently there is no guaranteed method to prevent breast cancer occurrence. In the report, “Cancer Facts & Figures for African Americans 2009-2010,” the ACS says a woman’s overall best preventative health strategy to reduce her known risks for breast cancer is “avoiding weight gain and obesity, engaging in regular physical activity, and minimizing alcohol intake.”
Cancer is the No. 2 cause of death among African Americans, second only to heart disease, according to the CDC. Breast cancer is leading site of new cancer cases for African American women and is second only to lung cancer as the main cause of cancer death.
Know Your Facts
1.All women are at risk for breast cancer. All breast problems must be checked.
2.African American/Black women under the age of 40 have more aggressive and deadly tumors, need earlier, more frequent breast cancer screenings, and aggressive medical treatment to increase their survival advantages.
3.Elderly black women may be less aware of breast cancer risk factors or delay medical attention, which results in more advanced disease.
4.Breast cancer is a leading cause of death among black women
5.Please know that MEN can also get breast cancer! The symptoms are the same as for women. If you find any signs as listed below, see your doctor to be checked immediately. Look at and feel your pectoral muscles for any changes such as:
» A lump in the pecs, chest, collarbone, nipples, torso, or underarms.
» Discharge or fluid from the nipples that is bloody, clear, pus-like, or smells bad.
» Skin changes that are bumpy, dark, different color, itchy, painful, rash-like, puckered, redness, sore/ulcer, shrunken, swollen, or tender.
» Take charge of your health: Learn about your family’s cancer history as cancer of the breast, colon, ovaries and prostate are related and either side can carry the gene.
» Reduce your alcohol and fat intake, reduce your weight, and increase your exercise.
Just bringing Awareness to my Sistas. Much Love.

Here is a picture of the hotel where we will be staying. Isn't it beautiful? Thanks to my former director, I'm leaving today for one of the best opportunties in the world. She passed on her "Leadership Retreat", to me and I am extrememly grateful, humble and appreciative. I sure hope I gain and learn a lot so that I can continue to progress and help someone else.
This trip is the beginning of a globally two year Leadership Commitment to work with some prominet, elite, professional men/women. We are headed to TwinCity, Minnesota to share, learn, revive, reform, expand upon and grow!
I'm very excited to be included and I can't wait to work with people who share the same common ground as I do.
This trip is basically a pamphering, take care of ourselves kinda trip and I'm so ready. Of course, I'm taking my laptop so hopefully I will have some indoor pool time to keep you posted! I sure hope they have a massage theraphy or yoga instructor like the last retreat. We shall see.
This is an exciting new season to meet new people and connect with the best globally.

It would be remise of me not to give a shout out to my former Director. She suddenly resigned and stepped out on faith to journey on to her next pathway of lyfe. She always talked about leaving and that I better have my shit in order to take her position and I kept telling her she can't leave me until she gives me the knowledge, wisdom that I need.
Whelp, she left and needless to say; I don't feel no way ready or capable to fill her shoes. My Director was a strong women with a backbone ready to carry the world. I use to joke around with her and call her "Mr. Man".
I will tell you I learned a lot under her wings and her shoes I will never be able to fill. The one thing that I loved about her is that she was always ready, willing and able to help someone. She touched so many lives and always seemed to have an idea, answer (if not the answer, she knew where to find the answer) to anyones problems, situations, and/or concerns.
If I were to define her, I would say this:
I wish her well on her pathway of her journey and I know she will continue to touch so many lives the same way she has impacted mine.

I had to drive to Charleston yesterday. Its a long ryde but when its this season (FALL) the drive is so much more beautiful and exciting. I love the change of the leaves on the trees and the sky! West Virginia is beautiful this tyme of year.
I attended a State MLK meeting and noticed that I'm seated round table sharing my day with some very promient educated people. It's truly a blessing to be counted in and able to listen, glean, take notes and to my suprise asked my opinion.
Today, I just feel blest to have a strong connection with some prominet educated people in the state of West Virginia. It's a blessing...
