I share these are my thoughts and feelings.
Dear Dr. Angelou,
Today you rest in paradise, and my feelings, dare I say it, are extremely selfish. I know you are at ease, enlightening the afterlife with your instrumental peace and glory … but I want you here… with me.
I do not recall the day I fell in love with you. Maybe it was in middle school, when I gazed at your lyrics in seventh grade English, unable to decipher the insight, but willing to feel the emotion with curious intensity. Or maybe it was in high school, when I began to explore literature and dissect the roots of Black culture and feminism. Perhaps I fell in love with you in college, when I was mature enough to grasp not only your lyrics, but the contexts which encapsulated them.
Yes, it was definitely in college! Your potent words gave me solace as I experienced subtle racism by the hands of classmates…

Love this book.!
My favorite team, the Lakers are not in the playoffs this year. See my post about the first round here.
I have watched a lot of basketball over the past week. Not caring who wins has given me a new perspective on the game. I made some predictions for the first round. Let’s see how I did.
Pacers vs. Hawks – My prediction: Pacers in 7 (Pacers looked shaky in this series.)
Heat vs. Bobcats – My prediction: Heat in 4 (Too easy.)
Raptors vs. Nets – My prediction: Nets in 6 (Nets needed an extra game to get it done.)
Bulls vs. Wizards – My prediction: Wizards in 6 (Wizards only needed 5 games.)
Spurs vs. Mavericks – My prediction: Spurs in 4 (Totally missed on this one. Spurs needed 7 games.)
Thunder vs. Grizzlies – My prediction: Thunder in 7 (Nailed it.)
Clippers vs. Warriors – My prediction: Clippers in 7 (Got this one too.)
Rockers vs. Trailblazers – My prediction: Trailblazers in 7 (Was really happy Blazers took care of the Rockets in 6 games.)
Not too bad. On to the second round:
Pacers vs. Wizards – My prediction: Wizards in 7 (tough call)
Heat vs. Nets – My prediction: Heat in 6
Spurs vs. Blazers – My prediction: Spurs in 6
Thunder vs. Clippers – My prediction: Thunder in 7 (close call)
Let’s see how I do in the next round.
