This Issue: Laughter

  “Get a hold of yourself!” I can’t!  I scooped our Featured Image from family friend, Teasha Renee.  She was traveling Amsterdam, and this photo caught her in an uproar of laughter that says it all.  Sometimes we laugh so uncontrollably, we spiral into simultaneous crying.  We all…

JL Yoga

  Question: Do late Yoga Class students bother you? JL Yoga answers: I give 20 lashes of the whip for every minute late. If more than 10 minutes late then you can place your mat on the sidewalk outside and peak through the window. That’s on days I…

Truth and Musings by Faeez van Doorsen

Happy Anniversary! Reflection is the word, and when I look back upon the 3 years of serving our readers, I am reminded of how our journey began. It started with one word, “diversity.” My spirit called upon me to speak from the voices of every age, color, faith,…
