Deacon King Kong was the selection and conversation for a virtual book club with author James Mcbride. His communication is similar to his writing style very clear. It was insightful and informative. He touched base on his background, the book/characters and some realities of life. There is so much depth to this author. I felt enlightened and glad this book was chosen to read. There's a connection amongst the characters, the writer and reader. 

James Mcbride mentioned this quote below when it comes to writing: 
"When there is judgment there is no journey
When there is no journey there is no story"

His character, communication, talents and writing is greatly appreciated. I shared a video below to introduce and learn more about James Mcbride.

Marvin Gaye

Flyin' High (In the Friendly Sky)  An incredible song by Marvin Gaye about Drug Addiction. While listening to the song it taps into your senses. Creative with the description, lyrics and reflection. He takes us on a journey; touching the soul, you can hear from the sounds, form a vision from his words and feel the experience. The power of addiction, drugs and the places it can take you emotionally, mentally and physically. Music is art, poetry and Marvin Gaye expressed that in depth and in the purest form. The album "What's going on" allowed us to see the world through his eyes.  Thank you Marvin Gaye for your impact, influence, style and impeccable talent.

Tears For Water

Alicia Keys Alicia Keys one of my favorite artist, a representation of brains and beauty. Tears for Water has lovely written words expressed in lyrics and poetry. My personal favorite is Stolen Moment which is also featured on her Unplugged album. Writing is a great form of expression and Alicia Keys did a wonderful job doing so in this book.
