Holiday Letter

 
 
Hello my friend,
 
Gearing up for Christmas?  I need to get a tree. I haven't celebrated with a tree in years.  This year, I want to decorate.  The [above] picture is of last year's Christmas tree at my father's house in Atlanta, Georgia. The big gift you see under the tree was not mine. :-)  Anyway, I will find a more modest tree for our place in Maryland -- one that fits our life.  We'll see. 
 
I can't help but to think of the new year to come as well.  I'm looking to make some positive strides and "grown-up" decisions.  I pray God has a hand in it all.  Otherwise, I'm going to do as the late and great Mr. Frederick Douglass suggested and "pray with my feet."  In other words, I'm going to make moves and trust God.  That's the best I can do.  Well, I hope that you and your family will have a wonderful holiday season. Also, I'm going to make efforts to write on MC.  You know, just to talk.  Peace & Love ~
 
 
Onward and Upward,
 
Stephen

EMIT

Good morning,

I was going through some things mentally this morning. Time? What is time? John Baldwin Buckstone said that time was made for slaves. I'm always thinking about it though. "What time is it?" "what time do I have to be there?" when is the right time to settle down?" "I'm getting older...my time is running out!" "It's about time you got here!" Man, I need to kill some time and just live! I need to stop thinking about time and just do it! I mean, whatever it is that I want to do. People are always talking about other people oppressing Them, but we oppress ourselves by becoming slaves to time and feeling like we can't do something because there's not enough time. Older people tell us that some things are before our time. Time ain't nothing but a Coo-Coo clock. Peace~

Civileyes Thoughts

When I was younger I wanted to be an actor so that I could portray a great character on stage. I became older and thought perhaps I will live my life in such a way that great actors will audition to portray me.

Searchin'...

"Vocations which we wanted to pursue, but didn't, bleed, like colors, on the whole of our existence. "
Author: Honore de Balzac

It's Friday!!!!!!!! Yes, I am like this every Friday. Yes, it's Steve the ultimate soul searcher. Seriously, I do more soul searching than Chuck Brown. There are other souls out there like me trying to find their way and looking for that glimmer of light that will lead them in the right direction. There is one thing that I understand about myself though; I want to create! I've always been an artist at heart. I mean everything from painting, playing an instrument, sculpting---you name it. Now, it's only fair to say that I have never been trained at either of those crafts; however, I am fair with a paint brush. As I grow older I realize more and more how important it is to pursue that which gives you most joy. "Material thangs that I thought had so much val-yah...ah girl I found they didn't really have any val-yah at all..." Sang Lionel! It's true though. Go for yours! Follow your dreams! Look inside your heart and you will find your true calling. Don't be slave to Louie V and Gucci. Don't be a slave to a house that you can't afford with an SUV in the driveway. Ok, that might be easier for me to say because I don't have any of those things, but you know I'm right. :) By the way, I'm not saying that it's not alright to have these things, but you should be able to live comfortably with them. Overall, be true to you and live your dreams. You might as well get what you want so go on and live. Have a great weekend! Peace~
