A Day for Lovers
This is a day when we're supposed to pay more than the usual attention to the love in our life. That "love," is supposed to be someone like you're spouse, or significant other, but I believe that whether you're in love, married, happily single, or looking to mingle, we should all take a moment to reflect on love and its power.
It's not always manifested in the physical, though that is the standard by which many of us define love. For some it's sex, others are looking to fall in love, but I believe that life is love, because love created the heavens above and earth beneath our feet. So, if you bought chocolates, some expensive jewelry, or something simple and special for your loved one that's great, but don't forget to give a moment of your thoughts and energy to the most high, because God is love, and that love is eternal, and unconditional.
I'll now digress, and share some thoughts and moments from Passion and Poetry 9. It's an annual event that features some of the best poets, and music artists around. Radio station V-103 sponsored the event, and radio personality Joyce Little was one of the co-hosts.
This year singers, Algebra, Tank, Lorenzo Owens, and Philpia kept the crowd moving. Poets like Spinxx, Queen of Sheeba, and Tameka "Georgia Me" Harper, blessed the mic with their brilliant word play.
The annual event has quite a following in Atlanta, and the promoter informed me that they're planning to take the show on a nationwide tour, they're working some kind of TV deal as well, and the DVD from last year's show is now for sale. There were two sold out shows, and I can see why people keep coming back... It's all about love.
