Cruisin’

I got back from my second honeymoon last month.
We took a wonderful cruise to Nassau and Cozumel. As the ship set sail, the cruise director started an old school dance party complete with the Hustle, Macarena, and the Electric Slide.

People from all backgrounds joined in, laughing, dancing and having a great time. Not judging, not hating, just dancing.

For five glorious days, I got to see what the world could be like, and it was great. Nothing but love and sunshine.

Maybe instead of elections, we should have one big Soul Train line. (It’s a thought.)

As old as 1968

Kwanzaa yenu iwe nahari. This means, “may your Kwanzaa be a happy one.”

Maybe this will be the year

Every year we here it – Peace on Earth, etc.

IM000883.JPGMost of the time we can pull it off between Thanksgiving and Christmas, but then by January 2nd, something happens and we go right back to our bitter, angry miserable ways. I think after this year’s presidential election, things are probably worse.

I have all of the “stuff” I need and lots of “stuff” that I don’t need. The thing I want the most for Christmas this year is genuine kindness, understanding and LOVE. Not just for the holiday season, but as a way we act toward one another.

Wouldn’t this be a grand world if love became our habit? Maybe we have gotten all of the hate out of our systems – maybe this will be the year.

May everyone have a great holiday!!!!
