Hi-ho, It's to the Copyright Office We Go!

I've submitted my book content to the Library of Congress, along with this logo design.  Whoo Hoo!!!!  I chuckle when I look at it because it's suppose to be a rendering of me.  It represents my slim face, long neck and natural hair.  I see my ancestors when I look at it.  I'm proud of my ethnicity and how my natural hair distinguishes me from the societal norm.  We natural sisters are rewriting what is beautiful and I'm all about that.  

I looked at my recent pictures, the professional images taken, and I have that signature twisted piece of natural hair falling down the front of my face or over to the side.  It's like a headdress that frames my face.  For the past week or so, I've thought about image and what I want my calling card to be.  It brings to bear the question, when people think of me, what comes to mind?  I'm not sure if any two people would have the same answer but I know what I want it to be.  

Authentic,  Accessible,  Genuine,  Joyful,   Creative,  Likeable, Speaking from the heart, are just a few descriptors that I'd be proud to have.  I want to be clear about who I am and what I can do and be honest with people about that.  To me, that's a gift.  When people are honest with me, they are giving me the best of who they are.  I want to do the same.  

Last night, or shall I say 2 am this morning, my preorder page for my book and my redesigned personal website went live.  What a moment!  It felt like I gave birth to something and was now looking at it.  I even posted a video on  Something happened.  I felt the shift.  I also felt a great deal of pride.  Proud of the creativity that I saw online and proud of the gifts and talents God gave me.  It was so much fun.  Took me back to the times when my sister, Cevonne, and I would spend all day drawing pictures and creating plots for our families. Way back then was a whisper of what I was going to do.   Everything is coming full circle.
