Food For Thought: I Get By With A Little Help From My Friends
Sorry for the delay in posts I broke the screen to my Macbook & have been bummed beyond belief. Today I was feeling pretty craptastic, Flo’s in town (so I’m already hormonally emotional & JACKED up!) & I just found out about what happened to that precious, precious baby girl Shaniya Davis & how she was found murdered. The image of her tiny hands holding on to a person she trusted, leading her to her subsequent death is MESSING ME UP beyond words. Why are people so cruel? I wrote an earlier blog about my friend Lee’s film “Precious” & how Mo’nique convincingly played the mother from hell but little Shaniya’s egg donor takes the crown. I really wish I were in a position where I can help Women & Children everywhere. I really feel like it’s my calling, I pray the good Lord will make this dream of mine a reality & no more will innocent lives have to endure such horrible, horrible fates. It’s really hard for me to snap out of these moods I emotionally crawl into after hearing such devastating stories, I actually went back to bed. The ugliness that lives inside of people scares me, but then I realized I am one of the lucky ones, I have amazing friends. My friend Lucas Culshaw painted this picture of me. YAY I’m a Culshaw Girl!He like Single Serving’s director Mike Kallio work in the Horror industry & the way they view me, care for me, protect me & genuinely want the best for me lifted my spirits today in what I thought I would easily spend the rest of the day numb to life. Lucas even painted this while listening to death metal.. HA! Awesome. I’m a huge fan of pin up girls & there aren’t very many Black pin-ups, Vargas, my favorite artist in this genre, only painted four. Don’t even get me started again on my excitement that in mere weeks I FINALLY get to see a Black Disney Princess *swooooon* too bad Shaniya won’t, there was no one to protect her. OH a piece of me died today, I swear! That poor little girl!
