Dearest Online Family and Friends: 

I hope everything is great with you; and you and your family are doing absolutely wonderful! 

JULY ~~~ SUMMER the best time of year is upon us, and I say “BRING IT ON!!!”  Oh yeah…bring on the nice warm weather; the crazy fun weekends; beautiful nights with the mellow BYOB atmosphere (sipping wine or something at home, or under the stars;) the energetic and motivating long Summer-3.JPG (8747 bytes)walks, rides or even run; the exciting outdoor concerts featuring pleasurable and therapeutic music from our favorite musical artists; great food and drink at home, or at your favorite restaurant/s; fascinating soirees with good friends filled with interesting discussions and laughter; awesome vacations; and most importantly, UNFORGETTABLE MEMORIES.  Ah…huh…I’m ready, bring on the fantastic “dog days of summer.!!”

A full ½ year and approximately 2 weeks have gone by; and now it’s SUMMER TIME!  

For many of you these past months have been excellent.  Unfortunately though, due to the weather and various “nature like” issues/problems many have suffered greatly; and many lives were lost.  Additionally, many of you personally have had regrets and disappointments.  Nonetheless, it is absolutely important to take the time to acknowledge the significant progresses and accomplishments you have achieved during these past 6 months.  Summer-2.JPG (9218 bytes)And regarding what you have NOT achieved; you must re-evaluate and re-set your goals so that they can be accomplished…yup, so that all you have been seeking can be accomplished!  Moreover, you must seek and understand the true and important things in life, and try to forget all your regrets and disappointments.  

I, however imagine many of you have a lot to be very proud of this year - so far, and are thrilled because you know the best is yet to come.  Indeed...the best is yet to come during these next 6 months of 2011.  Happy Summer ... Happy Summer Solstice, and welcome to a wonderful and winning 2nd half of year ~~~ 2011.  

Most importantly, I say to you: Take Control ~~~ Believe In Yourself ~~~ Love ~~~ Live ~~~ Pursue Your Passions: Reach for your dreams and make them into reality ~~~ Seek Happiness ~~~ Be Positive ~~~ Be Healthy!!!

 



 

Noteworthy Dialogue - Justice of Caylee Marie Anthony

In the words of NANCY GRACE [Former prosecutor, Author, Legal commentator, Host of her self titled show on Headline News, Television Journalist]  “…BOMBSHELL…!!!”  Wow, the verdict of Casey Anthony’s NOT GUILTY; NOT GUILTY; NOT GUILTY; that was reached this week by 12 Jurors was certainly a “freaking” Bombshell!  The only word I can use to describe my thoughts and feelings on this case is “REVOLTING.”  I personally think there was NO JUSTICE for the murdered baby girl (Caylee Marie Anthony); and now the whacko mother WILL walk out of jail in less than a week. 

I call Casey Anthony a whacko; because no loving, SANE mother would NOT report her child missing!  In fact, it seems she never intended to alert the authorities; but instead it was the Grandmother (Cindy Anthony) who called the police.  Sadly, this was done approximately 31 days after not seeing her grand daughter … done after she was lied to by the mother (Casey) of her grandchild’s whereabouts … done after being alerted that the mother’s car was towed to an impound lot, [and upon arrival to retrieve the car discovered a fowl odor seeping out the trunk of the car, and obviously confronted her daughter Casey who finally told her mother the poor little baby was missing.]  OMG...MY FRIENDS...31 DAYS AFTER!!!   Had it not have been for the grandmother (Cindy), this insane mother (Casey) clearly would have never come clean about her child missing.

The case was captivating and bizarre to me; simply because I could not understand why a mother would tell so much untruths regarding the whereabouts of her missing child, [who was eventually found dead and buried in a wooded area a few houses from the Anthony’s home.]

So heartbreaking for baby Caylee Marie Anthony; so heartrending that she was murdered and discarded like trash; and so nauseating that a mother who was the last person to see this little girl, and who was RESPONSIBLE for this little girl’s life had no care in the world about her.  And shockingly she walks out of court acquitted of the 3 main charges, and free to move on with her life without a care about her daughter’s life that was selfishly taken [possibly by her own hands!]

In the past few days, I spent lots of time tuning into the case, and listened to the closing arguments, the evidence, etc. I must agree that a reasonable doubt of her guilt via the forensic evidence was created by the defense team (Casey’s lawyers.)  However, there is NO DOUBT about a mother who cared NOTHING about her young child; and choose not to report her missing.  What mother could do this?  What was this mother hiding by lying perfidiously about the child’s whereabouts, and finding every excuse for the grandmother/grandparents not to see the child?  Well, regardless of the evidence, I feel there is something ungodly wrong in this case and with that uncaring, heartless, selfish mother; and the Jurors made a very GRAVE mistake by finding her NOT GUILTY.

Keep Caylee Marie Anthony in your thoughts, and pray that her murderer is found, and pays for committing such a heinous crime!!!!  JUSTICE FOR CAYLEE!!!!

 



 

On a more happier note, July 4th and the entire Independence weekend was awesome.  We had big plans on chilling at home, doing a little cleaning, cooking, etc.  However, my husband Todd decided at the last moment to stay in Washington DC; and even though we ran into a minor glitch regarding our accommodations our weekend was absolutely lovely; beginning with champagne in our hotel room upon our arrival [compliments of the hotel].  We literally toasted up the town doing an assortment of cool things. We saw a great concert [thanks Raymond P. for the VIP treatment to the "Freshly Ground" concert;] bar hopped, club hopped; and did quite a bit of walking…did I say drinking...and drinking...and eating…LOL!  All of it was incredible! 

We closed out the weekend with an intimate gathering hosted by our friends John and Gwen, and their beautiful daughter Ebony; with unbelievable tasting food, great conversations, cool drinks, and lots of laughter.  John and Gwen throughout the years have been wonderfully good friends; and I must thank them for their graciousness and their friendship.  It was also wonderful to have Radio Personality Tony Carr in our midst; who shared the 4th of July with us in fine style. He certainly hung with the downing of “shots” all evening and throughout the night.  I think he can finally hang with the “big people"; in fact with the "big girl" [me...me...me] ~~~ LOL!

John, Gwen, Ebony and even Calvin thanks so much!!!!  The great drinks, food, talks and laughter were absolutely fantastic!!!

"FlashPoint" - Presented by Hollis Lashley

 

Be inspired and Motivated to increase your Spiritual Energy.  

Hello All & the Arious Family: Just a few thoughts on our Culture.

Stay Strong, One Light!

Thanks,

Hollis Lashley, Author, Gifts From the Heart

"Our Caribbean Culture"

The Caribbean comprises a chain of islands stretching from the tip of Florida at its northern end to the tip of Venezuela  in the South, and include The Bahamas, Virgin Islands, Jamaica, Antigua, Guadeloupe, Dominica, Martinique, St. Lucia, St. Vincent, Barbados, Grenada, Trinidad and Tobago, and Guyana in South America.

A major export of the twin islands of Trinidad and Tobago is its Carnival, which has caught the imagination of people the world over to the extent of being recreated internationally. While being the model for world Carnivals, the Trinbago Carnival has had to pattern itself along more inclusive lines in an effort to accommodate the presence of other cultural realities which exist in large Metropolitan areas, many of which also bear some resemblance to the cultural patterns of the Caribbean.

In many areas where Caribbean people have settled, there have been blatant shifts in the food items which are included on the shelves of groceries and the mom and pop stores which cater to the neighborhoods. Caribbean, Spanish, African and other ethnic foods including Chinese are now available for daily consumption. Caribbean, Spanish, African and other musical genres can be heard blasting on the radio and from passing cars as young and old enjoy their cultural preferences. Clothes and flags decorate bodies and homes, making statements of cultural pride, and proclaiming to the world that this America is indeed a Potpourri of Immigrants who long for America, only to keep looking back at their places of origin.

Our last Carnival celebration of course forces us to revisit our authenticity here in this land of the free. There is a stark reality which we must face if we are to be given the opportunity to announce our presence in culturally appropriate ways, as a Caribbean Carnival is meant to be. To be hustled on and off the road, and to be told in no uncertain terms that we are not wanted on the street, is not only disappointing, but also very disrespectful of our presence and contributions to the building of this society.

This statement is not just to complain, but to point out that now is also an opportunity for us to take the appropriate steps to band together and to additionally create the kinds of documentation which can show the commonality of our cultural practices, and which can help to legitimize our cries for being heard by the powers that be.

More impact studies can help, but one has to be deaf and blind, not to understand the monetary impact which the Caribbean Carnival has on the City of Washington, D.C, and its environs. Granted the DCCC has done a wonderful job in times past, but it appears that there are new stakeholders in the house, and that the stakes are no longer what they were in the past. Politics may be playing a larger role than we may wish to admit, in the ability to celebrate our culture from a Caribbean perspective, and I repeat from a Caribbean perspective.

More than money for having a parade, is the need for respect for what we are celebrating.

More than holding important office, is the need to recognize that this is a peoples’ celebration, with a necessity to hear the voice of the people.

More that begging for handouts, is the need to convince the decision makers at all levels that we do have a genuine cultural presence which can and must be heard

More than being a burden to this country, we can showcase our contributions at many levels including Education, The Creative arts of Mas’, Theatre, Music and Dance, Liberal Arts, Science, Medicine and a host of other expressions. We have even been able, (some of us that is), to burrow so deeply within what we consider to be the fabric of the American society, that many are not recognized as being of Caribbean origin. The American Dream need not be a Caribbean nightmare. Be that as it may, some cannot and will not give up the fight to be included in the American family, as we bring many positives to the table including our joy-filled and rich celebrations of happiness and Love.

Isn’t it significant that so many of us can come together in peaceful celebration without the fussing and fighting which erupts at other such gatherings?

Can we decide to pool our resources of scholarship, cultural and other expertise, so that we move past the paradigm of our own self importance, to recognize that  “Together we can Aspire, and Together we will Achieve.”

Let us all at this time become the solutions that we seek, for within the fabric of any adversity lies the seeds to its solution. Namaste my friends.
