I look Better With Braids!

Someone told me today, he is glad my braids are back on. He looked at me, gave me a kiss on the cheek and said I look pretty. I said thank you!


I look Better In A Fro!

Someone told me today she likes my Angela Davis fro. She was happy to see me. Thank God, I no longer have the braids. She was thinking about the weight on my head, they must have been heavy . I said no and she replied, oh!


Happy International Women’s Day!

The picture I have of women, is undoubtedly what I learned from my Mother, her legacy. She once told me that every smile of independence and rights in a woman’s face, was one less tear in her eyes. Today, I would rather just tell her that I finally get it! Smiles like these can take more than a day or a month. It will at least take my whole existence! _ Raul Jorge Neto


I look Better In A Ponytail!

Someone told me today that I look better on a ponytail. Yeah, that's right, a ponytail. Case closed. The customer is always right, right?! But wait, hold your horses right there missy, who's talking to you horsy?! I heard the tail begging me to please not put him on a corner, oops my bad, on a pony. So, I didn't. I let him be, free as a cucumber to rejoice his glory. So there, he is a tail in a pony and feeling great about it. And... Because I am happy!
