A Mayor's Life

In the book "A Mayor's Life" by David N. Dinkins he enlightened, shared his experience and told his story by leaving a proof of life. 


"You don't have to be loud to be strong."

LEGACY

Graceful, honorable, intelligent and regal are a few words to describe New York's First Black Mayor Mr. David N. Dinkins. In which I had the opportunity and pleasure of meeting. In the video above he speaks on the importance of education. His qualities are admirable to face life challenges, changes head on and do so with integrity, strength and reservation. I am proud to learn history and observe your life's physical assignments, may your spirit be the guiding light for others to follow. Thank you for your dedication, impact, leadership, service and prestigious hard work. You are appreciated with gratitude.

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.
