Of all of my #author photos, this is my favorite. My dad didn’t know that I brought one of his books, Metegee, a cultural history of #Guyana written originally about 40 years ago, with me to this #Guyanese #writers’ event. As I explained to the audience, I come as one but “I stand as 10,000”- words from Maya Angelou. I see further standing on the bridge of my personal history. When I was a kid and there were early editions of this book around the house, I knew one day I would see my name on #book covers as well. Thanks, Papa! #SacredBombshell #SacredAndTheCity #bookclub #readinggroup #books #nw #nowreading

Happy Labor Day weekend! As #LaborDay is when we also celebrate #Caribbean culture, I’ve been invited to read from my #newbook, the #SacredBombshell Handbook of #SelfLove, at the #Guyana Cultural Association’s 9th annual Literary Hang in the Folk Festival, celebrating #diaspora #authors. More info at tinyurl.com/GuyanaGoddess— but I LOVE the quote on their site: “No wo/man is an island because every wo/man is piece if the continent, part if the main.” Indeed! #SacredAndTheCity #guyanese #westindians #books #reading

Cape Cod in August #WhiteParty Thoughts from Sufi poet #Rumi: “A voice inside the beat says, ‘I know you’re tired, but come. This is the way!” Yeah. ;-) Inside the beat! #purejoy #TurnDownPorQue #MorrisonGolfClassic #SelfLoveRoadTrip #LetsGoPlaces #ToyotaGolfs #SacredAndTheCity

Spotted on the #SacredBombshell #SelfLoveRoadTrip! Eyelashes for your car. I googled it and apparently it’s a thing. :-) These #CarLashes are so fun. I love it when people personalize their #stuff to express their individuality. Material items can be fun, but even more so when you don’t buy into how things are “supposed to look” or “supposed to be.” Plus they brought out my inner #VannaBlack.

Perspective and reframing #SacredBombshell #BeforeAfter: BEFORE- Boohoo, #Summer is almost gone. This sucks. Where did the time go??!! Why is my favorite season so short, and why is it getting cold already? AFTER - Um, wait. Summer is still HERE right this very now, and if I don’t #carpediem I am missing it by complaining about it leaving… Like it always does because it is a season… #seasons #sacredandthecity #workinprogress

#ThrowbackThursday! Me with Red Foo of the Party Rock group #LMFAO a few years ago. I love the individuality and energy that he brings to his #music and performance. From what I remember we were asked at the time not to mention that he’s Berry Gordy’s son. He was tons of fun, however…This was one of my least favorite dialogues and here’s why: while they were busy being themselves, I was very clearly wearing a mask, a persona. I had been advised that I needed to become more edgy, so I debuted my new “self” in this interview. Speaking, dressing, speaking in a way that is awesome for people feel good in an “eff you” mode, but that’s just not me. Ugh. It was barfable but I forgive myself for doing what I knew best to do at the time. 

The lesson was be you, Abiola. Everyone else is taken. Be your own kind of #badass and your own kind of #Sacredbombshell. Revel in your you-ness, embrace your uniqueness, and enjoy being yourself. If you try to be like someone else you may come in second BUT no one else will ever be a better you than you will! Party Rock on. That is true #selflove.

I don’t know what it is about trees. I have always been slightly obsessed with them. Maybe it’s the symbiotic relationship between human beings and plants. It could also be that my mom grew up reading in a guava tree for comfort and recreation in #Guyana. I can just picture her with the same look I had up reading past bedtime. I love trees. 

I know what it is… In my imagination they’re just like us. I feel rooted in fertile soil, the seasons may change my look but I am still here, growing, changing, evolving, adding on layers and shedding what doesn’t work. And my leaves are fly. 

That’s the goal anyway until I remember that I did away with goals a few years ago. I flip my leaves back and forth. :-) I love trees. Photo by @ZuyapaJackson at Falmouth #CountryClub’s #MorrisonGolfClassic in Cape Cod sponsored by @SimplyRides. #SelfLoveTour #SacredAndTheCity #ActivateYourLife
