You might recognize the title of this podcast if you picked up the July 2018 issue of The Writer. In it, you'll find my article on my former grad school writing teacher Phillip Lopate.
I interviewed Lopate last December about his career and in the next two episodes, I'm sharing some of our chat with you.
In it, we talk about his latest book, A Mother's Tale, the usefulness of code-switching, the importance of anticipating the readers' objections, and much, much more!
Sensuality is in the aroma of your morning coffee, the flavor as it tickles taste buds, and in the feel of your body as it courses inside... oh, smells so good, come taste sensuality.
Find it, find your sensual voice. Whisper with wishes for romance, scream with desire, love, and longing. Find it in words;
In the bold aroma of freshly brewed coffee beans, the crispy taste of sizzling bacon as the flavor delights your tongue...
in the feel of a kiss as lips brush, tongues tangle, and mouths feast, and in the magic of eyes locking across a crowded room... find it in the beauty of nature, so full of sights, smells and sounds it caresses the senses... Find it...
Sensuality is everywhere, touch it, taste it, feel it. In poetry we can do anything, be anything; come express yourself.
Dip your quill inside the inkwell of endless possibilities and show me your sensuality, paint me a picture with your words.
Close your eyes, inhale, feel, breathe.. write on
This is a black arts and culture site. We will be exploring the African Diaspora via the writing, performance, both musical and theatrical (film and stage), as well as the visual arts of Africans in the Diaspora and those influenced by these aesthetic forms of expression. I am interested in the political and social ramifications of art on society, specifically movements supported by these artists and their forebearers. It is my claim that the artists are the true revolutionaries, their work honest and filled with raw unedited passion. They are our true heroes. Ashay!

One day you will stand before God and give an account of your life. The most important question you can ask yourself now is, will you be ready?
Most Christians know their response to the cross determines where they will spend eternity. But did you know that how you’ll spend eternity is determined by what you do in this life?
God wants you to discover your calling—He’s not trying to keep you in the dark. In fact, He longs for you to find the meaning and purpose that comes with knowing why you’ve been placed on this earth.
In Driven by Eternity, best-selling author John Bevere uses an eye-opening allegory and extensive Scripture to unveil how our daily choices shape our eternal existence.
Life beyond the final breath is much more than a destination. Don’t wait until it’s too late. Discover your God-given destiny and make your life count both today and forever.
