The internet is an incredible resource.  In fact, incredible is an understatement, 'cause it's so much more than that.  But one of its most glaring drawbacks is the relentless negativity that finds its way onto every comment section on every blog!  I'm talkin' some of the most disgusting vitriol known to man!  Yes, I realize the genesis of such tripe is undoubtedly the commenter's feeling of unworthiness.  Disharmony in his/her own life.  I get it.  I just don't like it.  On the flip side, whenever I sign onto Facebook, I read tons of positive messages about being healthy.  Working out.  Lifting weights.  The photo above came to me today and I absolutely LOVED it.  And I love it because it sums up for me PRECISELY the kind of "healthy lifestyle" this world TRULY needs more of!  I've gotta make a concerted effort to ALWAYS lift those in my presence.  With words!  And DEEDS!

So, NOW you know what I mean when I ask you, "Do you LIFT?"

Eighth Wonder Of The World

Fitness guru JACOB SUMANA is no joke!  From Denmark, Jacob represents everything good about sculpting a physique.  He's a true testatment to what discipline can do for a body.  His favorite quote reads:

"Discipline, Dedication and Determination are the keys to Domination."

Geez!  I'm off to the park now to do whatever I can do to keep myself lookin' half way descent!

Get out and MOVE, folks!!!!!!  Get out and MOVE!!!

Just An Observation; Not A Complaint

I'm THRILLED to be alive to feel it---honestly, I am---but, ooh, chile, it's a"warm" today.

The Ugly Truth About Beauty

On Facebook, I read tons and tons of posts written by young, black men and women who want nothing more in life than to become famous models.  All they talk about is this fashion show and that fashion show.  They talk about all their "photo shoots" and post hundreds of images.  The muscularly built men have hundreds of semi-nude images.  I can always tell which of those images are shot by gay, male photographers and which aren't.  Those shot by the former always are either nude or as close to it as humanly possible.  Pants are always unbuckled.  A veiled glimpse of the penis and/or full-on butt shots are staples.  Honestly, unless a guy is being paid to model underwear, he doesn't need underwear photos.  He most assuredly doesn't need a HUNDRED of them!!  Similar, risque images of women are usually shot by heterosexual men.  Whatever!

Today I stumbled upon a ten-minute PowerPoint presentation given by a true, working model:  Cameron Russell.  Man, the young lady broke down that black models are invisible to the fashion world her experiences in modeling and didn't pull any punches.  She courageously states that tall, thin white women are what's deemed beautiful.  Duh.  Tell me about it!

I wholeheartedly recommend all the non-white model wannabes hear her message.  It's truly POWERFUL!  And I suspect, dead on the money!

Stripped Naked

For me, hearing musical instruments accompany a terrific voice are just the icing. The voice is the cake.  Back in 1990, I heard a 20-yr-old and thought, hmm, I like that voice.  I never needed to hear a piano or a sax or a guitar accompany her voice.  Simply hearing her voice...Alone...Completely stripped of  any other sound than its own was fine with me.  I'm not 100% certain it sounds the same today.  But, hey, no aspect of man's body is the same as it was 20+ years ago.  Suffice it to say that I am just eternally thankful to hear her voice of old in its bare and stunning and incredibly beautiful state.

Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you:  her VOICE.  Stripped naked.

Damn You, Tennessee Williams!

I will not spend what's left of my life CHASING after money.

I will not spend what's left of my life WORRYING about money.

My dilemma, however, is that, at damn near 50 yrs old, I have yet to earn ENOUGH money doing what I enjoy most.  That would be eating talking to people I know and people I don't, as myself.  You know, what Oprah does.  And Ellen.  And Leno.  And Letterman.  And a host of others.  Unlike them, though, I haven't made a "name" for myself in another realm, which could allow me to transition smoothly into what I know I was born to do:  TALK.

Well, at this very moment in time, my heart's still beating properly.  And my mind is still working properly.  And my arms, eyes, ears, legs, mouth and hands work properly.  So, I can still turn things around.  I can still search hither, thither and yond to persuade somebody to pay me for talking as CAM Jr!!!!  Although it might not readily appear so, I still wholeheartedly believe the adage:

That said, tomorrow is a new day.  So a new attack is in order!  'Cause, truth be told, I'm at a psychological place where I'm praying...

And it doesn't help that I'm well aware of Tennessee Williams's famous quote:

"You can be young without money, but you can't be old without it."

Livin' High On The Hog

My younger brother has just received his customized, new motorcycle.  Oops!  Excuse me.  I meant to say, his customized, new Harley!  I believe there's supposed to be a difference!  Haaa!  I'm not big on motorcycles, but I can clearly see his is as sleek and stylish as any I've ever seen!  May God continue to bless and keep him safe!!!!

Slow Leak

Today a plumber finally put an end to the misery that was my leaky, kitchen faucet!  The darn thing had been leaking for what seemed like an eternity until it completely went bonkers late last night and spout water like a fountain!  I had to turn off the water for the entire building until the plumber arrived.  Okay, so the landlord came first, but he wasn't sure what to do, so he called a plumber.  A plumber who is very pleasant, but doesn't seem to possess a keen sense of promptness!  He arrived three hours AFTER he said he'd be here.  I didn't fret, though, 'cause a part of me simply believed he'd come.  Eventually.  And he did.  Now, all is well in the world.  Isn't it nice when you can be thrilled with just the "little" things in life????  But what's really up with plumbers always moonlighting as CRACK dealers???  :) :) :) :)
