Update . . .

D-Natural (Android Version)
What's up world ?!?!?!?

It's your man D-Natural back with another installment in this here blog of mines. For those who have been supporting and following, I know what's on your minds: "D-Natural, what the hell have you been up to?? When we gonna get some new music and poetry?!?"

Let me explain:

First of all, I thank everyone for their patience and continued support!! It really does mean the world to me and definitely helps drive my creative ambitions.

My future solo projects and other artistic endeavors had been put on hold because of two things. For those who don't know, aside from my music & writing career, I've been continuing academic studies at Virginia State University. Also since summer, I've developed a ferocious appetite for higher consciousness as I'm growing spiritually. This has led to a massive amount of independent reading and studying outside the classroom as well.

As much as I live for creating my art, this expansion of consciousness along with academic obligations has taken me away from completing and releasing my next wave of music & writing. This included my aforementioned next EP "The Collegiate Experience" (inspired by my time at Virginia State), another EP (possible debut LP) which I won't discuss just yet and my first e-book of poetry along with various instrumentals to expand my catalog to service other artists.

From day 1 I've been self managed as well as written, produced, performed, recorded and mixed everything that everyone has ever heard from me musically. Also I've solely designed, produced and maintained all my online networks, websites, blogs, profiles etc.. All this while furthering my academic education. I've always worn all these hats pertaining to my career and am proud that somehow I've been able to do it by myself (although I wouldn't mind having a team to handle certain aspects of it). I just absolutely LOVE what I do and want to be as hands on with it all as possible. I also feel this has allowed me to keep that personal touch on my brand as well as keep a close relationship with my fans.

Fortunately, that's the beauty of being an independent artist so far. I set my own deadlines and am not locked into releasing material a certain way or by a certain time for an entity that I could be signed to as a musician or publisher as a writer. Not only does this not restrict my creativity but allows me to take my time to make sure I can present the highest quality art to you all that I can which I feel you all deserve. How far I've gotten has been solely because of myself and I'm proud of some results I've received and the progress I've made in this regard.

The fact remains that I've had a lot on my plate, and although it can be mentally, emotionally and physically draining, (as well as diminish my social life or lack thereof) I like it that way so I'm not going to make any excuses. I've grown so much personally, spiritually and consciously in the past six months, it's incredible! And you must know that it's spilled over into my work for that also grows as I grow. So overall it's been a necessary investment of my time and you all will reap the benefits as much as I will.

"The Collegiate Experience" EP has been about 70% complete. I've actually produced and written all the songs earlier this year and all I have to do is lay my vocals down and finish mixing everything along with some post production. I've always gotten bored quickly and easily with just creating one project at a time so I've also started another album which we'll get more into in the future. Some may argue that I should focus on one thing at a time until I complete it, which makes perfect sense. However, this also makes me stagnant creatively, and I must be creating several things in different directions to stay inspired as well as keep my sanity. As for the poetry, I've been compiling and editing works that I want to include in my first e-book. I'm narrowing down different entities that I want to collaborate with to get it published and distributed so that you can get it anyway you please upon it's release.

Without rambling any further, that is exactly where I am right now. I know I've been quiet but I haven't stopped working. Trust and believe it all will be worth the wait!! I again just want to thank everyone for their support, love, encouragement and patience. You all are the best!

Until the next go round. as usual keep chasing your dreams & keep the faith!

What's up world ?!?!?

 Here is another original poem of mines that I will be including in one of my forthcoming poetry e-books. I hope you all enjoy it. As for the music, I'm still actively working on writing the rest of my next EP "The Collegiate Experience", inspired by my time @ Virginia State University. Shoutout to all my Trojans!

I would like to thank everyone for their support! I'm truly taking my time with these next projects of mine, including all the visuals that will be released associated with them. I intend to set a new standard in my quality of work that hope you all will be continued to enjoy and invest in.

Till the next time, keep the faith and keep chasing your dreams!

I've been petitioning Erzulie
to send the female energy to me
wishing to be
by its power

for a womb similar
from the one I manifested
yes a womb
to be my tomb
so I can rest
and be reborn
into the next
state of consciousness

a variety of ways courting
in the abyss
of my madness
where a kiss
can end
isolated sadness

Am I wrong
for seeking the song
she sings when she moans
while between thighs of eternity

for a sip from her springs
to provide nourishment
in this wilderness

I became excited
when Venus visited
and dropped spells of erotic genius
as I stood on Olympus
my godliness

reminded me
that it's only
that I've merely
forgotten the part of me
that didn't have to compete
with women's

For it's only a reflection
of myself assuming
that I had to suffer

I yearn
to make the pussy purr

goddesses crying
tears of joy
as I explored their void
and exploded haloed asteroids
streaming down
her celestial body
like warriors of Troy

Proud beast
ready to feast
on fowl
praying to prey
on they
that except thee
for me

The bed set
is a spaceship
for a fantastic voyage
but lately love is a relic
buried under past forfeits
of lovers missed
because I felt
I wasn't worth it

Now here I sit in silence
sensually sensitive
aroused from her scent
as she passes
seriously waiting
to seduce
her senses
into spasm
shocking her chakras
sending orgasms
from tantalizing tantra
I fathom

Oh Oshun
this drought must end

Gotta Love Great Reviews !

What's up world !?!?!

It's always great when I get positive reviews of myself and my work. It's one of the things that inspires me and motivates me to keep the grind going. I had first become acquainted with the author of this post Mr. C Brett Campbell, through our encounter on Google Plus. Mr. Campbell is the Vice President of Mid-Tenn Music ( ( and the owner of Small Barn Sound. Like myself, Mr. Campbell has a deep passion for unique music and artists so I was so humbled when he praised my work, taking the time to write this review on his site.

As usual your boy is hard at work wrapping up my next EP "The Collegiate Experience"! As you know good things take time to create and being the perfectionist I am, I am taking my time with these new projects I have in the works so that I may not disappoint you all.

Stay Tuned for the latest in my original music, poetry, and visuals !

Keep the faith & keep chasing your dreams !

1 of my throwaways from the vault. I somehow manipulated a sample of Gregorian monks chanting to spell out DMV.. It’s kinda rough but whatever, it’s the only version . It was of the moments where I liked it when I was creating it but then I didn't like it afterwards so I just put it the vault. In this situation I would usually delete the original instrumental so I can't record over it again. Then a couple months or even years later when I stumble upon it again, I'm like this isn't that bad after all, maybe I should at least share it with the people. I do that with my music A LOT !! I'm so brutal on myself & my work it's not even funny. I think it's because I listen to it so much while creating/writing to the music that it gets redundant and annoys me after awhile. I forget that when other people hear it, it's going to be brand new to them and they might get a different, better experience. Sometimes I think I have to go out and live life so I'll get some fresh ears then come back to some of my old work. This is usually the best time for me  to listen to it again. I always hear it differently then and can immediately see what I was attempting to do at the time. This is why I at least keep some songs around because I just plain delete a lot of stuff I make (a bad habit I'm trying to break). This is because I feel it won't live up to my more popular & acclaimed work. But anyway, hope you enjoy! More original music, poetry and much more coming soon!!

Humbled . . .


Click to Enlarge

What's up world?!?

I'm just starting to recover as I type this, due to nearly fainting when I discovered that the legendary music journalist/author, Danyel Smith, not only knows who I am but even favorited my profile on  If you don't know who she is Google or Youtube her right now, or you can simply click to enlarge the above screenshot and read just a few of her many outstanding accomplishments. For those of you that's been following my chronicles here for awhile, you know I wrote a post about how surprised I was when the legendary Michael Narada Walden, showed me love on another profile of mines. The love shown from Danyel Smith here ranks right up there!!!

Now please don't get me wrong. Trust me, I really do appreciate ALL the support, love, and respect that EVERYONE takes the time to show me. It really does keep me going. But when I am acknowledged from the super-stars of the industry like these individuals, it truly is the icing on the cake. The fact that Danyel Smith has contributed in a major way in more ways than one, to all the music publications that I've grown up reading (while wishing I can be in one day), just absolutely thrills me! She has worked with all my heroes and I know she isn't a fan of just anybody plus keeps it real, which is part of the reason why her opinion is valued and so critical in the industry. So the fact that she actually took the time to check me out and liked me, leaves me speechless.

This seems to be happening to me more and more recently. Just when I think no one cares or even appreciates my work, I get pleasant surprises like this. This just confirms that I must be on the right track. I know in my heart and soul when my work is decent enough to share with the rest of you, or I just don't release it. At the same time, I'm still scared to death when I put things out because I don't want to disappoint anyone and I put a lot of pressure on myself to do my best. Also when I mention my musical or literary endeavors to 90% of my family these days, they don't want to know anything about it, no matter what success I could be enjoying. Some of them even change the conversation while I'm in mid sentence or look the other way (seriously). I've learned that a lot of it is jealousy, envy, and a reflection of how they view themselves, which is the last type of energy you want to receive from your loved ones. God forbid I become successful from doing what I absolutely love instead of doing what everyone else is conditioned to settle for in society. I had texted my grandmother recently with the news that I had the first of my releases on iTunes and didn't even get a text back, a congrats or anything. If I texted her that I had a job interview for a corporate entity, I bet everything I own, I would have received a positive text back. Now I'm not the type that needs a pat on the back, but some type of positive encouragement is good for everyone I think, especially from family. So for all my haters, take that, take that, ha ha!

I can give numerous examples about how sharing my ambitions with my family will get a response from them as if I'm sharing my plans for genocide or something hellish. However, I think you guys get the point by now. I just never could understand that they choose not to recognize these obvious abilities that the Divine has given me. I know if I had a son who could do some of the things I could, I would have been his business manager, tour manager, roadie and biggest fan in whatever path he chose to go with it.                                       


When I get love from notable individuals like Danyel Smith, it trumps any negativity I can receive from anyone and is just a beautiful reminder that my labor of love is not in vain. I guess we truly never know who's watching us. But they are only watching me because of decisions I've made to go and get mines with gifts God gave me. This was very inspiring and motivating. I want to say thanks to everyone out there that's been down with me and loving what I do. I consider the fans my TRUE family, because I get the love and appreciation for being me. Not just my music, poetry or performances, but > > > ME.

Until the next time beautiful people, keep the faith and keep chasing your dreams!

Words can't possibly explain how much I love women. Being the lonely single man I am, this is just something I finished writing to express my adoration for something that's missing at times. This for all the ladies out there. My pathetic attempts to write love poetry.



By: D-Natural

want us
to blend
souls together
and form
a cosmic
sweet like
your lips
in my bland

never forgetting
I Came
from you
believing in me
and my breath
is your divine ether

to embrace you
is majestic
like I'm holding
onto everything
perfect in creation
and I'm
my principle
is in your palace

You balance
my purpose
scale to
your supreme
I freeze
in your arms

You charm
my Buddha
and cause me
to rethink
All that is
from myself
lost without
your body
as my compass

Ode to joy
because you are
my sonata
and I can't
hear God's voice
because your laughter
drowns out my pain

I've labored
so hard
to deserve you
and in return
you birth
a new
to rule the Universe

May we matrimony
down the path
of milky ways
with comets
as decorations
our ceremony
and they'll
shower us
with solar flares
and auroras
announcing our union
to All beings
in existence

Giving my dignity
to cameo
in your dreams
so it's a reprise
when you awaken
next to me

You camouflage
my insecurities
and present
them to me
as commendable
attainable perfections

You stroll
alongside my pharaoh
as the centerpiece
of my Being
holding me down
as if it's no
other way
for Us to reign
and I am forever
for how much
you appreciate
my sincere
for you
Love Supreme

What's up world?!?

Being that today is known as Independence Day in the USA. I recognize that not everyone can celebrate an Independence Day and not everyone was even free or independent on what is known as Independence Day. So from there I began to think of  "freedom" as just a concept. I remember the pretty sister from that movie "Slam" with Saul Williams, saying that you can be free anytime you want. So what is freedom? That inspired this piece I just finished writing called "Freedom". Just me scribbling some random thoughts as usual. New ebooks coming soon!

Being an outcast
I'm not popular
I don't have a crew
around me

I can't attract
designing women
because I didn't
invest in slave camps
that manufactured
the new Jordans

and I'm decked out in apparel
from four years ago
now they getting hip
and calling that retro

you won't see me at tonight's party
with misguided queens
twerking on me


I'll be with one
who knows
I am intellectually sexy
rubbing my back
as I solve complex equations

in each breath
I am granted
and not being
reminded from family
how much of
a failure I am
because my phone is on
airplane mode
and I can't receive
their calls

renting a room
not having a mortgage
or paying property tax
on land I farmed and built
just to say I am a homeowner

remembering when I used to scan
my finger
to clock in at work
for a boss
to delight in being
the dictator of my soul

living below my means
not buying designer genes
rewiring my DNA
to love debt

not chasing relationships
content with self-investment
but it's a challenge
and I've learned
the lonely nights
were just an illusion
because I couldn't see
my ancestors present
as they turn-up
and celebrate
rejoicing me
working silently
ushering the next revolution

fresh set of eyes
to decode
matrix programming
inventing a new
form of DOS
through coded language
that conscious
mind computers
can break down

and it's hard
to escape lust
when thick tender thighs
are headed my direction
conjuring up my homie
explaining yesterday's erotic conquest
but knowing
restraining myself
will be worth it
when I find queens
that can rock my world
spiritually and mentally
for mind orgasms last
way longer

so I'll continue
to seek truth
uncovering what I already knew

which was

free your mind
so your ass can follow
the kingdom of heaven
is within

Monday, June 30, 2014


This is something I just had the inspiration to write & just finished. It's dedicated to my family & all the ratchet broads that rejected me, that I shouldn't of been attracted to in the first place.

Peace & Prosperity. Enjoy! I love to give but I need you all just as much. Poetry ebooks coming soon!

My love is so good
it scares you
from letting me
into the part of you that's evil

I am so beautiful
that I'm flattered
when you call me ugly

You delight my presence
with your nonsense
and it's nice to know
when you gossip
you're denying your envy of my Divine

Make me a spectacle
of your intelligence
my intellect
beseeches you
as irrelevant

Now is the past
and tomorrow I'll be born
so my heaven is today

Immaculate energy
flirts with me through
so I have an infatuation
with my arrogance

Women run opposite
of my advances
and into demons
that babysit their ignorance
of my innocence

Music is meditation
and silence are vacations
romance is an illusion
because I'll never meet
the part of you that's sacred

I adore the sound
of my pencil on paper
for it's the sound
of my sanity

Babies born screaming
to alert us
that we aren't perfect
then smile to let us know
we are still worth it

Time is an excuse
for limitations
inner excavations
reveal true reasons for constellations

Remember when you told me
I couldn't do it
you were right
I exceeded it

Abstract Notation

What's up world ?!?

It's been awhile since I've posted an original poem of mines here. I'm currently working on releasing a series of ebooks which will include new & unreleased poetry. If you can, please support me when I do because if you didn't know by now, I'm a starving artist and could use the funds. Anyhow without delay, here is something I just finished writing. Enjoy. Peace & prosperity.

"Abstract Notation"

By: D-Natural

Give me my forty acres on Mars
rubbing stars on wounds to heal scars
I'm roaming the unknown

Cascading melodies
score my dreams
remembering when bliss felt right at home

I'm longing to belong
but fear masquerades my rights as wrongs
God mercifully leaves voicemails on my unanswered phone

My honesty misunderstood
shyness shields the chance that you could
my defense to be left alone

I'm mastering feeling the energy
when alternate beings enter my vicinity
mirroring the part of me not shown

Amongst the masses
I hold mass
expressing the part of me not far gone

Prepare my chariot would ya?
I'm homesick for my utopia
motivation for the writing the next song

Evolving . . . . (Part 2)

Somehow I've managed to navigate the madness of society & a system that we are born into and remain true to myself. I think it has a lot to do with spending the first 15 years of my life, which is only half of my life up until to this point, neglected (other than when I would visit one set of grandparents on the weekends). This is because I was the only son of a single parent who worked all the time and the other half of the time spent it with who would later become my stepfather, who lived on the other side of town. From 3rd grade on ( about 7 years old) I was in charge of getting myself up for school (with my mother acting as an alarm clock phoning from work), feeding myself (sometimes consisting of ordering carryout everyday with money left with me at the beginning of the week), washing my own clothes etc... After school I was immediately to return back to the house where I would remain isolated until the next day. Sometimes I would remain outside and play with my friends, but rarely seeing how I didn't want to disappoint my mother, though she wouldn't had a clue if I did or not. I was just naturally a well disciplined child and advanced for my age. I guess my mother could see this in me, which is why she didn't mind leaving me by myself, but who knows? In this house, all I had was musical instruments (hence the self taught multi-instrumentalist/writer I've become today), music tapes, a variety of pets including a serious bird collection (which I was in charge of caring for) and books/paper. We never had cable so the only TV I would watch most of the time would be the public access channels, though I wasn't allowed to watch TV but once again, it was impossible for her to tell if I did or not. This is where my love for documentaries and knowledge came from I believe. Little did I know back then, that this was not at all an ordinary childhood, which would reveal it's affects positively & negatively in my adult life indefinitely.

I finally got the privilege to move in with my mother who had been primarily living in my future stepfather's house for the past 8 years, when I got to high school. I always could tell he never really wanted me in the picture to begin with but I still belonged to his woman regardless. I think by this point I had become desensitized without really knowing it to the concept of what a family actually is, my connection to other people and my connection to my mother or anyone in my family for that matter. The only true sense of family I had would be the times I spent with my paternal grandparents on those certain weekends (I considered my paternal grandfather a true example of a real man/father) which of course matured me a lot faster being that I was around older people when in their company. I guess you can say I had to grow up really fast, coming out if this environment. Somehow though, from a very young age, I had a very keen awareness that this was preparing me for what I would be doing in my adult life. All the hours/days alone with nothing but instruments, books, and my imagination, cut off from the outside world (accept when in school) would be necessary for my destiny as an independent artist. I can definitely see that now and had it not been for myself growing up that way, I would not be quite as built and equipped to carry out what I am working towards today.

Without going into anymore details of my childhood or past (I'll save that for my biography one day), I've shared that much with you in order to show how I've evolved from that into the eccentric man/musician/artist I am today. As a child and adult, I've been looked at so differently, from both my family and my peers, who I am sure haven't quite experienced life the same as I have or even was aware of the matter. I am an outcast and looked down upon from most of my family who really doesn't know me because I've spent so much of my life isolated from them and still do, only by choice now in my adulthood. I've watched them along with society formulate opinions of me based on what they think they know about me or tell each other. All this has done is strengthened my self awareness and knowledge of how most people operate. It's to the point now where I've developed a sixth sense for other's thoughts/actions/motives concerning myself and I can read people extremely well, thus making me very selective of who I deal with regardless if they are family or not. This has helped me with being able to write poems and songs where I explain what most people are thinking but just don't have the ability to articulate it as well. This is because from the very beginning all I had was myself, my feelings, and the tools around me to express what was happening inside me. It's like I've gotten to know myself so well, I can recognize certain patterns of behavior/characteristics in others which has protected me from getting involved in some bad situations. Perhaps it's an Aquarian thing as well.

The few male friends I have wonder how I can devote ALL my time to my work without chasing as many women as I can prey on along with them. This is not because I don't like dating or hanging out, on occasions I do. I absolutely LOVE women. I am just extremely selective, possibly because of the experiences I've seen with my own parents and various others growing up. I just somehow knew that I wouldn't be of any real value to women, until I understand and love myself first. I would just be wasting their time and they would be definitely wasting mines. I've seen TOO MANY examples of people getting caught up in relationships that they weren't ready for to begin with, because they did not work on themselves enough first. Families like mines put pressure on the younger generations to get married, have kids, keep up with the status quo, get a well paying career (whether if it's what you want to do or not) because it's what they were conditioned to do and I've just instinctively known that wasn't right. My family wonders how I'd rather miss family gatherings so I can stay in my humble little crib and work in my studio. My friends wonder why I'm not into parties or clubs (unless I'm performing) and prefer to be alone, working on my passions. They all wonder how anyone can be so content with being by themselves and not doing what everyone else is doing especially in college!! If you would allow me to personify music for this instance, I would say that music/writing/arts was the only person who kept me company when I was neglected as a child, when I couldn't play with friends, or be around family. Music was just one of the gifts given to me as a reminder of the creative geniuses we are ALL born to be. To this day it is extremely easy to cut any of these people in my life off and focus solely on my work. This is something I am not sorry for. Some may call this being anti-social, I call it focused on what really matters, knowledge of self (God) and using it to benefit my fellow man, regardless of what else or who else I could be doing because it is all I'm striving for.

As I've grown older I've gotten tainted from being in this system/society along with the rest of you, but I can clearly see that being so isolated as a kid in the beginning was actually a gift. It allowed me to develop the perfect genius that we are ALL born with at a very young age, thus defining my life's purpose that I am carrying out today. Now I am not saying that you should neglect your children so that they remain their pure perfect selves, for I do not suggest that. I am only explaining MY experience and how it has made into the man/artist I am right now though most misunderstand me, especially my family. It is not their fault for they do not know my true history or even theirs and I can't blame them for their ignorance. People fear what they do not or don't want to understand.

It is for this reason that I am so appreciative for the ones like you who have supported me and stuck around on this journey I'm on. I'll continue to share more insights as I have done from the very beginning of my chronicles here. Perhaps you might all understand me as well as my evolution just a wee bit better now.

Evolving . . . . (Part I)

What's up world ?!?

Once again, D-Natural here with another installment of my chronicles. As you know, my blog here not only focuses on my music and my poetry but my life in general. Even with my Twitter and my other online domiciles, I always try to inject as much of who I am as a person as I can, for that is exactly where my art comes from, my life. Usually when I visit most artist's social media accounts or sites, I would be bombarded with links to their music, videos, tour dates, and so forth. While this is cool, it always left me wanting to learn more about the artist themselves and their world behind the scenes. I didn't have or want to know everything about the artist but just enough to know that they are actually human and may be actually going through some of the things I was. I've learned that people are actually interested in the personal lives of the artists they dig, especially in real-time if possible. That's what makes reality shows and talk shows so successful, because people do really want to know about what public figures go through in their personal lives. Of course you can learn a lot about who an artist is by actually listening to or watching their work, but even in those cases one might still desire to know more.

It is for this very reason that for this particular post, I've decided to just speak on my evolution as a man as well as an artist during the first half of this year. All of this will be reflected in my upcoming work as well but being that I'm not quite ready to release that material just yet, I would just like to share some of my other thoughts with you as well. For those who been following me for awhile, you know I have no problem with keeping everything transparent and giving you all of me, hence the title of my blog here: Poetry, Beats, Rhymes, AND Life (partly inspired by the Tribe Called Quest album of the same name), which is exactly what my brand is about and what you will always experience from it.

As I type this, I'm listening to a classic album called Plantation Lullabies by DC's very own Me'Shell NdegeOcello while sipping on some chamomile tea. Lately I've taken a break from writing and composing my new material to do some soul searching while learning about what's really going on in the world. Being the avid researcher I am, I blocked out everything and everyone (which wasn't hard being that I tend to be an extremely private/isolated person anyway) to just educate myself on several topics. These topics included astro-theology, the government, and the music industry. As I reflect on what I've been through personally this year and the lessons I've learned, what I have uncovered is too vast to put in this one post, but let's just say my mind has been BLOWN AWAY and I will never look at things the same again. One thing I can say is that I am a lot more hip to this matrix we all live in and trust me we are in a matrix. We must all AWAKEN to what's going on around us and unite RIGHT NOW because if we don't we are truly headed in a bad direction very soon. I plan to aid this shift with the messages in my art, which is the best I feel I can offer of myself besides actually volunteering in certain capacities.

I tend to be so buried in my work without trying to be distracted with the results, that when I do take time to analyze these results (which is necessary for my business and brand) I am shocked at the progress I am actually making. To think, several years ago, when I came up with the name for my production company Artistic Visionz Productions (which actually comes from my last name Artis) I had absolutely no idea what I was doing. I just knew I had the talent and the experience musically/creatively to go the distance, if I gave it my ALL. It seems like it was yesterday when I was trying to figure out how I was going to map everything out for my brand online, which was around the time when social media was just beginning. It would prove to be perfect timing. I had made a decision to start out at a time when things were changing rapidly with digital technology and within the music industry, which is still having to make adjustments while things are becoming more to the artist's advantage.

Today it's crazy to see what I've managed to accomplish since that time period, although I still really haven't accomplished that much or nowhere near where I'm going with it all. What is even more amazing is that I've been an one man staff the whole entire time. I can truly say that everything that people have seen, heard, read from me has been solely created by my hands from my music, albums, websites etc.. I just got used to figuring it all out and executing it on my own (although it would be nice to have my own staff eventually). It's very hard to get folks in the music industry to give you advice or even respond to you, especially those individuals at the higher levels in the industry such as executives, which I have had the pleasure of encountering. However, it was only through my diligence and relentless passion that I've attracted these individuals as well as connected with my beautiful fans, which I rather call my family.

This chamomile tea and the smooth vibes of this beautiful record by Ms. NdegeOcello is finally making me feel a little sleepy, so I'll continue this in my next blog post sometime this week.

Until the next time, keep the faith and keep chasing your dreams!
