Harriet’s Mixed Bag Mid-Year Missive
Given what Black People in Amerikkka continue to experience; it’s clear that the ideal of freedom, justice and equality for all, is just that, an ideal. Amerikkka has yet to truthfully grapple with its legacy of slavery, a legacy maintained by systems, institutions and practices that perpetuate racism, exploitation, injustice, oppression, incarceration and more…
Devastation and Celebration!
June has thus far been a very full month of family devastation and celebration. Although some significant dates have passed, I’m referencing them nonetheless.
Devastation wreaked by the malevolent, inhumane, despicable, abusive and immoral treatment of families at the U.S.- Mexico border! As many others, I’m sickened, angered, appalled and more ashamed of this country than ever with #45 currently at the helm of this so-called land of the free! (And true, this country has a history of separating families; slavery, Native American schools, Japanese Internment Camps.)
Calling for Divine Intervention and Conscious Action!
Celebrating the resounding success of my Rock Star Story-telling Showcase Debut
Performance, under the theme of “We Who Believe in Freedom” A partial response:
“How you managed to portray the awful and awesome dimensions of your and our collective history, and your personal journey with such creative genius-via movement, music, poetry and prose- was truly brilliant.” – FranCione
I look forward to sharing my story with other audiences at other venues, but now just allowing the specifics to reveal themselves organically over time.
Celebrating the Golden State Warriors 2018 NBA Champions, yet again. The Warriors Victory Parade was big fun for all the fans! Edward and Mercedes even got their #11 jerseys autographed by Klay Thompson at the parade!
Celebrating the Summer Solstice on June 21 (Winter Solstice in Southern Hemisphere), honoring the energies of action, manifestation, expansion, fullness!
Celebration of The Association of Black Psychologists, “Building for Eternity” 50th Annual National Convention in Oakland, June 27-30. I’ll be participating in the Opening Ceremonies honoring ABPsi Founders and Presidents. We’re doing so with West African, Afro-Brazilian and Afro-Haitian dance and sacred ritual. (My elder body doesn’t move with the agility of my youth…but I’m practicing nonetheless!)
As you reflect on the first part of the year:
- What intentions and priorities did you establish?
- How would you assess progress thus far?
- What results do you want to celebrate?
For the remainder of the year:
- What are you seeking?
- Must you modify your strategies to garner the results you desire?
- Is it time to seek help to move forward?
At this point, you may not have achieved all that you set out to do. You may have become distracted, lost momentum or direction. However, you have the power to re-assess, renew and recharge to create and manifest what you most love and what’s most important for you.
