Lena Coles-Dennis called me up and asked if I wanted to go see the Nigerian musical, "Fela!", now playing at the Ahmanson Theater. So you guessed it - after a quick meeting at in Century City,
I hopped in my whip and headed on downtown! Once I arrived at the Ahmanson Theater, there were so many people excitedly trying to get parked and get into the theater to see "Fela!" Got to the Box Office and picked up my tickets in Will Call, I raced to my seat with not a minute to spare - The lights went down and the show began!
From the start, the lead actor, Sahr Ngaujah, tactfully proved one of my Grand Father's favorite sayings,
"Some of the biggest truths are told through jokes." You owe it to yourself to go see "FELA!" and please keep in mind, unless you've walked a mile in a man's shoes, you should not judge him...
Fela Anikulapo Kuti =
Fela Kuti is standing and performing live! As a matter of fact, the entire cast brings their "A" game!
What is truly unique is how the musical explores in detail, the multi-faceted, symbiotic relationship between Fela Kuti and his Mother, Funmilayo Ransome-Kuti, is explored through the Yoruba religion that is practiced by the Kuti Family/Tribe.
Melanie Marshall, who portrays Funmilayo Ransome-Kuti, has a mellifluous voice, the essence of a Mother's love, and simply evokes emotions that are sure to move your soul!
| "FELA!" Cast members, Melanie Marshall, Sahr Ngaujah,|
Sandra Izsadore, Paulette Ivory
A native Nigerian, Fela Kuti was born in Abeokuta, Ogun State, Nigeria,
on October 15, 1938 - August 2, 1997.
He was his a human rights activist, a musician and a composer who was the catalyst that created Afrobeat sound.
His parents sent Fela Kuti abroad to the UK to study Medicine, and instead, Fela Kuti decided to to learn more about music, and increasing the awareness of the political strife in his native land, Nigeria.
"FELA!" has some of the most outstanding dancers I've ever seen! All of the performers are lively and beautiful and make you want to jump up and dance to the rhythm of the beat of the drums! Yeah, it is truly an excellent rendition of the life of one of Nigeria's Native Sons, a man that danced to the beat of his own drum, that was considered a threat to the Nigerian Government(1970-1997).
Long live the King of Afrobeat - Fela Kuti! "Yeah Yeah!
Visionary, Jim Lewis, multi-talented choreographer, Bill T. Jones, and the entire cast of men and women who perform are excellent! The vocals are amazing!
I'm just going to tell you now, get into your Whip and head to the Ahmanson Theater's Box Office and grab a seat while they are still available. Also upload the music on Facebook, and follow "FELA!" on Twitter -
I have a feeling that the entire series is going to be sold out because the night we attended, as far as the eye can see, there was not ONE vacant seat in the house!
Love & light, C

"Two-time Daytime Emmy®Award-Winning Host, Dr. Mehmet Oz...At The Largest Free Clinic Of Its Kind"
It was "Dark-Thirty" in the morning when we all arrived at the LA Sports Arena, on Friday.
What I mean is, the sun hadn't even come out yet. We looked around, and who do you think was standing there in his scrubs, motivating the multi-faceted medical staff who had volunteered to help the 5,000+ people who waited in line patiently last Monday (Oct 17, 2011) to get the wristbands that would allow so many to receive free medical, dental and vision care Thursday - Sunday
(Oct 20-23, 2011).
The CareNowUS.org team were in full force with Dr. Mehmet Oz spending the day at the LA Sports Arena - yes Honey, Dr. Oz was in the house!
It came as no surprise to find out first hand, how truly passionate and sincere Dr. Oz is regarding helping all of us, one person at a time, to become the best me, excuse me,
I meant to say, the best WE that WE can be! Nationwide, Americans are wrestling with diabetes, obesity, hyper-tension - all major issues that Dr. Oz is consciously taking people by the hand and making sure that they understand that this life we are living, is not a dress rehearsal. For real though...
Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas and his incredible Staff, are making sure that for the very first time, there will be follow-up appointments at the various clinics in the County of Los Angeles, for so many people; Don't get me wrong, the free health clinics are wonderful - but you mean to tell me there will be follow-up appointments made as well? Snap-Snap!- Say what?!) it was a new twist to a fabulous dance that we thought we already knew!
Do yourself a favor, take a moment and look around you. Do you like what you see? If so - great! Then you will learn to fine-tune what it is that you are doing that makes your life work for you.
If not, then you are going to be enlightened by truth. We all know that the truth will set you free!
Dr. Oz is on weekdays - Monday - Friday on KABC (LA, CA) - 3:00pm - 4:00pm PST.
Love & light,

You served this beautiful country, this United States of America, in the Navy - and you proudly wore your years of service like a badge. Although you were in a terrible car accident a few years after getting out of the Navy, and paralyzed from the neck down, you still managed to somehow make me feel like the most blessed, beautiful baby girl in the world! I can still here you say, " You are my heart piece, and Daddy loves you, loves you!" Oh Daddy. Despite being a quadriplegic, and on an emotional roller coaster - angry, sad, grateful and mad at times, you always managed to shift gears emotionally to let us know that you loved us. To tell us that all of us were conceived in love was a beautiful thing. I thank you and Mother for that.
I carry that love with me today and always, Dad. Missing you, your baby girl, Carla
( My Dad was buried with full regalia at Golden Gate National Cemetery.

Today, July 9th, the Orange County Great Park marks the debut of two new Park developments in Orange County, CA - The Palm Court Arts Complex and the North Lawn sports field, which are both part of a $70 million Western Sector Park Development Plan, which will eventually increase the size of the Park to more than 200 acres. The Orange County Great Park is actually larger then Northern California's historical Golden Gate Park located in San Francisco (which is 200 acres, and was built in 1093). The Orange County Great Park is considered to be the largest park built in the 21st Century - amazing!

Time trying to make you look small so they can look tall.
They are very negative people to say the least. Nothing is ever
When you make your mark, you will always attract some haters…
That’s why you have to be careful with whom you share your
Blessings and your dreams, because some folk can’t handle seeing
It’s dangerous to be like somebody else… If God wanted you to be
Like somebody else, He would have given you what He gave them! Right?
You never know what people have gone through to get what they
The problem I have with haters is that they see my glory, but they
Don’t know my story….
If the grass looks greener on the other side of the fence, you
Can rest assured that the water bill is higher there too!
We’ve all got some haters among us!
Some people envy you because you can:
a) Have a relationship with God
b) Light up a room when you walk in
c) Start your own business
d) Tell a man/woman to hit the curb
(if he/she isn’t about the right thing)
e) you are a strong person and don’t let people run you over
f) you have a strong and loving marriage and they can’t get in-between spouses to spoil it
Haters can’t stand to see you happy.
Haters will never want to see you succeed.
Most of our haters are people who are supposed to be
On our side (like some family and friends).
How do you handle your undercover haters?
You can handle these haters by:
1. Knowing who you are & who your true friends are
2. Having a purpose to your life: Purpose does not
Mean having a job. You can have a job and still be
A purpose is having a clear sense of what God has called you to be.
Your purpose is not defined by what others think about you
3. By remembering that what you have is by divine
Prerogative and not human manipulation.
Fulfill your dreams! You only have one life to live…when its your
Time to leave this earth, you want to be able to say, ‘I’ve lived my
Life and fulfilled my dreams, Now I’m ready to go HOME!
When God gives you favor, you can tell your haters, ‘Don’t look at
Me…Look at who is in charge of me…’
Pass this to all of your family & friends who you know are
Not hating on you including the person who sent it to you.
If you don’t get it back, maybe you called somebody out!
Don’t worry about it, it’s not your problem, it’s theirs.
Just pray for them, that their life can be as fulfilled as
Yours! Watch out for Haters…BUT most of all don’t become

Some would say that Stevie Wonder's music is prophetic, therapeutic and can cause you to reflect on your life - Lyrics that soothe the soul, make you happy, making you want to jump up and dance, put you in the mood for love, or, sit down and make you take a long hard look at the World; Stevie Wonder's music can make makes you think about current events, religion, the sun and the moon, rocket jets, or even random acts of kindness - your present life and contemplate on one's future.
Side bar: I met Stevie Wonder in the lobby of the Beverly Wilshire in Beverly Hills (A Four Seasons Hotel) - thus the photo of the lobby.
So I'm taking a moment to reflect, with Sissy(my sister), on the life and the legacy of Stevie Wonder. Congratulations Stevie, on receiving an honorary degree from Tulane University, New Orleans, LA!
We love you Stevie Wonder!

My Mother had a clear job description for us children; be respectful and obedient to your parents and grand parents, respect other adults, do your house work and home work, get good grades and have f-u-n!
It was our job.
Why? Because my parents believed that since childhood is such a short period of time, children should not have to worry about adult problems.
I clearly remember the mornings that my Mom got us bathed, clothed and fed, and my Dad took us to play in Golden Gate Park in the mornings. My grandfather would pick us up after school on Wednesdays and take us to Golden Gate Park to play as well. It was our routine.
It all seems like yesterday.
My father was in a terrible car accident that rendered him a quadriplegic 6 months after my brother, Stuart's death - SIDS - and my Mother had to deal with the death of a child and a husband with special needs and raise her surving children. Wow. Mother, you are my Super Hero. You still found time to love and care for us, despite the other things crowding in on our time/space/life. Without your love, we don't know where we'd be.
Mother, we'd like to thank you for always being there for us, making sacrifices for us and making sure that we as siblings were taught to care for, like and love one another - look out for one another. Mother, Al, Carla, Valerie, Detroit, Rebecca and Malisa love you very much - This I know for sure.
Hats off to you women that took the time to realize that children don't ask to be born, but once here, they deserve quality time, love and attention.
To all of the Mothers whose hearts allowed enough space in them to love and nurture children that were birthed by another Mother, but loved by you -
May you continue to be blessed 1,000 fold.
Truly with love & light,
A Bridge to Strawberry Hill - Stowe Lake - Golden Gate Park - PDPhoto.org

The entire cast was excellent. Tyler Perry truly gets into character as Madea, bringing home major thoughts and ideas regarding what's important and what's not. Loretta Divine's character, Aunt Shirley, is a kind, loving, caring mother that gives so much to her children and they take and take and take advantage of her. You've just fall in love with Aunt Shirley. Shad "Bow Wow" Moss plays the teenage son, Byron, who has a son and gets involved with women that seem to be concentrated on making Byron a "Bad Boy" for life. Shad "Bow Wow" Moss is one of my favorites in film and off the screen. He is one of the most respectful teenagers that I've ever met in Beverly Hills.
I wish Tyler Perry, Loretta Divine, Shad "Bow Wow" and the entire cast much continued success! You all are ON IT!!!

Founding International Chairman and Secretary of American Foundation for AIDS Research, one can honestly say that helping people is what English born, Classic American Hollywood Star - Dame Elizabeth Taylor did so well by spending her time and dispelling the ignorance and raising the consciousness of so many people regarding HIV/AIDS - stating,
"Well, I kept seeing all these news reports on this new disease and kept asking myself why no one was doing anything. And then I realized I was just like them. I wasn't doing anything to help."
As the late Michael Jackson, a long time friend of Dame Elizabeth Taylor said in song, "I'm starting with the man in the mirror..." Will you do the same? Why not donate your time and resources to making AIDS a thing of the past...The following people at amfAR are setting a prime example of what we can do to make a difference in this world. I call these people Warriors for a cause - making a difference every single day of their lives - hats off to you all at amfAR!

Disney partnered with the City of Inglewood's Park and Recreation Division, KaBOOM! and Home Depot to build a community playground - a Dream playground that took a few hours to create - yes, done in a day!
KaBOOM! , a national non-profit organization, works with communities to build playgrounds ideally within walking distance of every child's home.
Disney and the City of Inglewood had so many helpful volunteers from the Staff at Disney and the Inglewood community, working shoulder to shoulder, to create a new playground for children ages 2-12. KaBOOM! truly believes that children everywhere should play in a nice clean, fun neighborhood park.
Queen Park, is located at 652 Queen St., Inglewood, CA 90301, right off of Prairie St. The park is very inviting with multiple slides, swings, 2 hopscotch courts, plenty of running and space!
Guess what? The City of Inglewood Parks and Recreation, supports the Let's Move initiative, First Lady Michelle Obama's active road map to eating healthy, getting active and taking simple steps to succeed in making "America's Move to Raise a Healthier Generation of Kids".
The City of Inglewood saw the need to create a garden that grows all kinds of wonderful veggies - green beans, zucchini, cucumbers, tomatoes and so many other yummy veggies as well - and it is lovely!
Today the children living in the Inglewood community got the surprise of their lives when they got home from school today. I have to say, working with the people in the community like Ann and her beautiful daughter, Denzel, Pat, Jenny, and the Staff at Disney that volunteer to create great playgrounds like Queen Park, - I mean really good people, like my team member Rick
(a husband and a father of 3 children under the age of 5), Caroline and Adam, were genuinely happy to make the children of Inglewood's Dream playground come true.

Well, that is what it's like to get a moment in time to sit down in the same space/time continuum with Bernard & Shirley Kinsey as they lecture on the many accomplishments that African Americans have contributed to the unique history of America the Beautiful!
Bernard and Shirley Kinsey are sharing their knowledge - bringing multiple historical artifacts and documentation that provides invaluable information to the table - information that might be difficult to hear at times because the Kinsey's do not romanticize history, no, they state the facts.
