Dear Daughters: Keep Marchin

Raphael Saadiq
Dear Daughters,
In the midst of what I like to call the in between time-
from the frenzy of Christmas to the hope a new year brings-
I believe there is special creativity we all have within us,  not often discussed.

It is the soul/heart's creativity in facing the challenges life brings.

In days' past, to tackle these challenges ‘creatively’,  

I think women worked hard physically seeking ease: 

in their gardens, scrubbing a floor, tending their children.

May I suggest an alternative?

When as Raphael Saadiq says, “…there’s nothing you can do and nothing you can say…”,

pick an anthem, set your worries to music, and Keep Marchin.

Happy New Year! 


PS.  My new word for 2014 is LEARN-
complete with a new notebook, package of medium point black ink BIC pens, and colored markers.
