as i walk through the urban jungle, i look around and i watch do or die babies that don't know if they will see tomorrow. I often wonder if we'll ever realize that we are only hurting you and me. maybe we do know what we are doing, i don't deny it. we are always told that we need to learn something, but nobody wanted to take the time to teach us. so we taught ourselves by piecing together whatever learning we could get our hands on. so with battlefield scars the hip hop babies that are now thirty-something movers and shakers need their own sages and gurus. not saying that i'm either, i still have some things that i need to learn. what i am, is a person that have chosen to take the road of the NuAge Elder. making the sacrifice to be that person that the indigo babies look toward for mentorship and guidance.
i started this walk so many years ago. i wanted to do something and i knew that i wanted my daughter to have an experience like no other when she started her cycle. I wanted her to have a beautiful day. i wanted her to have sunshine in her eyes when it was cloudy outside. i wanted her to be proud to be a woman. i needed her to know that womanhood was nothing to be ashamed of, that it was sacred, cherished and the most powerful thing on earth.
so here i am, asking my daughter to allow me to document her passage into womanhood. yes, she is 9 years old and i respect her person to the point that i needed to ask her. i never believed what mothers would tell me. "Wait till she becomes a teenager." the rest of the convo is irrelevant and negative. i was a teenager and i just wanted to be close to my mother and she didn't really now how to be close to me. i digress. i called my little girl the other day while she was visiting in New York and asked her if it was alright to post her pictures on the website. i first asked her to take a look at the website and tell me what she thought about it. she called me back and told me that it was alright, then she gave me permission to document her journey into womanhood. we, together, are going to take this theory and translate it into real life in real time. Real scientific process to bridging the inter-generational divide permanently. AND YES . . . I do believe . . . I do know . . . that ALL things originate with the first drop of blood. let's graduate...
Peace and Blessings, that is what people expect when we see each other. If they don't hear a "Peace and Blessings" they start asking questions. It's funny how life can take you to where you began. That's what happened over here. We'll get to that a little later. So Mama Raminyah is a glorious misunderstanding to all those uninitiated souls. She's not without her challenges of course. It's just that the common motto is "God lives IN me AS me."
