I hope that most people who read my post don’t think that I’m full of rage and anger because I’m not.

I am simply a Black man who has been through a lot of trials, and who’s well-traveled, analytical, educated, and brave enough to speak my mind. I really don’t care if my reality has a dismal aspect. It is simply what I’ve experienced in my life, good, bad, and ugly.

Though many Black people don’t speak their true minds, I do my best to encourage them to speak their minds in response to my opinions, even if they disagree with me. I won’t shun them. Sometimes they do comment on my posts. Sometimes they do so in private. Many despise me because of my views as oppose to discussing why they feel differently. That their “monkey”, not mine. I will explain “The Monkey” in a future post.

But I am only sharing with you how I managed through The Revolution that we’re currently in. …And, through the trials that you may experience.

For one, I manage through practicing daily meditation. I’ve done so for about 30 years. I have posted on meditation, as well as on prayer, which too is a long-time daily practice of mine. I do grounding as well. All these things keep me at a higher vibration in spite of expressing frustrations with the things that I’ve experienced. …The things I experienced today. …The trials in which I’ve endured.

But this post is about music. Music is a big part of my life. I see it as the background theme music of every scene and mood in my daily life. …As if my life is video content. I use music to calibrate my mood and spirit whenever it requires calibration.

We Gonna Go Back…Way Back – Guest Blogger Lady G – That’s My Jam! – My Jams 1971 & 1972 – ‘Catch Ya On The Flip Side’

In this post, I am going back into time with Soul, R&B, and Funky music.  Music was so much better then, in my opinion, in artistry and message.  I am not a big fan of today’s music.  With music readily available on streaming services, and on the web, there is no reason not to be stuck in time with good old school music. 

Please join me and new guest blogger, Lady G, as we reflect on the music of 1971 & 1972


I encourage guest bloggers to post on my site.

I envision a day when all fellow bloggers will exchange posts that are befitting to their mission to propagate like-minded and contrasting stories, wisdom gained, and reflections to our collective audience.

These bloggers and content providers are becoming the new prophets, the new newscasters, and reporters.  They may not exactly usurp authority from, the church, networks, other artists, religious leaders, or clergy.  They will complement them.

In my opinion, Bloggers and content providers, like Lady G, will increasingly become an alternative source to mainstream media, televangelism, and the news.  We will give followers and readers an opportunity to hear what they want to hear, reflect on what they want to reflect on, and express what they want to, from a more organic, grassroots perspective.  Followers will have a more accessible two-way communication, than with mainstream platforms.

Myself, I have not watched a full broadcast, if any, of the news in nearly a month.  I have been reading quite a bit on WordPress and on other social media platforms instead.

…And, it’s less depressing. Continue reading “We Gonna Go Back…Way Back – Guest Blogger Lady G – That’s My Jam! – My Jams 1971 & 1972 – ‘Catch Ya On The Flip Side’”
