Wisdom For/From Motherhood

If wisdom were a person, place or thing, I would have found it long ago. But according to Mr. Webster’s definition, wisdom is “knowledge gained over years of experience; the natural ability to understand things other people can’t, and knowledge of what is proper or reasonable; good sense…

Know Thyself

One of the most profound pieces of wisdom to float the planet is Man Know Thyself. According to Dr. Nantambu, The Kemites, ancient Egyptians, wrote those words on the outside of their temples in Kemet, Nile Valley. The Kemites were highly spiritual. We can browse through the religions…

Row: Knowledge, Intelligence, Experience

Wisdom, knowledge, and intelligence, are often thought to be synonymous. I believe they are distinctly different, but that is my belief. Knowledge is acquired through experience and studies. We, meaning the human race, are born with varying degrees of intelligence, and this, too, is influenced throughout our years…

Snap Into Your Power

Back in the 90’s Snap released a jam called ‘The Power.’  The hook was I’ve got the power. Later in the song, they would say, “It’s getting’, it’s getting’, it’s getting kinda hectic.”  Then the female lead would break out with “I‘ve got the power.”  This song would…

Goin’ In: Vignettes
