    Conversations with Sapphire J Blue chats with Author William Jones

    in Writing

    The Ex-Con, Voodoo Priest, Goddess, and the African King In this day and age, seeing black comic book characters isn’t at all uncommon. In fact, every year we see more and more black superheroes and heroines on television, on the big screen and in the comic books themselves. 
    But this wasn’t always the case. It wasn’t so long ago that black superheroes were few and far between, and the ones that were around had some questionable origins and storylines. In this book, William Jones, founder of Afrofuturism Network, breaks down the origins of four black comic book characters – Luke Cage, Papa Midnite, Storm, and Black Panther – and analyzes their representation throughout comic book history. Whether you’re a long-time lover of comics, an established or aspiring creator or a new and casual fan you’ll find something new as you read about the untold stories of these heroes and get a feel for the future of diversity and representation in the comic book medium.

    What is Love?

    in Writing

    Is it feelings and emotions?  Is love simply caring for someone.  Is Loving showing consideration and thoughtfulness to another human being?  
    Should we love purposely or by default?  Should we continue to be kind and love those who don't show us love?  
    Why is Love important?  This show is about LOVING in action.  In creating the course, An Extreme LOVING Experience! people said, "there is already too much emphasis about loving self".  "When we love ourselves too much, it takes away from loving God".  How many of you agree with these statements?  
    You and I - we were born from love!  We signed an invisible contract at our birth to love ourselves.  It is your birthright to love who you are and what you are about.  And, get this - loving yourself is not a special occasion, or a one-time event - it is a daily journey because as you grow in love with you, the world will love you too.
    Know this, self-love is not believing you are better than someone else, it not excusing your mistakes and human flaws; it is simply taking great care of the inner you.  Another benefit of Loving self - the better you care for, appreciate and love yourself grows more love to share with others.  Think on this:  How is it possible for you and me to love someone else if we don't love or even like who we are?
    An Extreme LOVING Experience is a simple reminder the importance of self-kindliness, self-care and self-love.  So -  love you and spread the love on purpose.
    This is the First loving, heart-warming Heart Pump-up eposide.  Heart Pump-ups are designed to inspire - not to impress - to keep you in your own way loving self and loving those you touch.
    Your Host, TR  - Share the love to Be Blessed With Love Always!
