Goal Line


Today, like many days, I find myself reflecting on my goals ... those of the personal and professional variety. My achieved goals encourage me to set new ones. And, my un-achieved goals fuel my passion for those a bit farther away on the horizon. As they say, life's a journey! 

In the meantime, it's Hump Day. So at least my journey to the weekend goal line is in sight!



Black + Super


Outside the Obama years, this has perhaps been the best President's Day weekend I can recall. Note: This is in no part due to the current occupant of the White House, but thanks to Hollywood. Shattering record ticket sales, the Marvel - Disney production of "Black Panther" premier gave myself and many others pause and cause to celebrate. Finally, a major blockbuster action film showcases a super hero with a black face (and majority, star-studded black cast). Fantasy aside, the film celebrates the real power of representation, Afrocentric pride for all those in the Diaspora, feminism ... and the list of positive #wakandaforever vibes goes on and on. I hope this is the beginning of a franchise with many follow-ups and spin-offs to come! In the meantime, I'm going into the work week feeling black and super!
