Maya of the @TheMCBProject featured my work in her “Frame of Mind Project,” and was spot on with my love of pastels, metallic gold and midcentury modern design [the Linden Floor lamp gives of a midcentury vibe]. I am actually in the process of reupholstery a great vintage find in a pastel pink—get out of my head girl! Of course I am adding some neon to the color scheme too.

Day 9     #50DaysTo50
shawty
shawty slim
hey, red   (take time in-between these words)     bone
dats DC talk
in DC for a talk
it’s February so you know we be talking
we be talking 
i am from here though
DC helped create me
constructed some of my layers
I was made aware of my connectedness and my otherness
here
i was black and I was light 
i was black and creative and intellectual and black
and I had people and people had me
i made friends ever lasting 
i learned how to dream my own kind of blackness here
it was a privilege a blessing not a burden
to be young gifted and black
i was trained to know I was a gift and gifted
here in DC
i could be baad ass and funky and into fashion and hardcore 
and love Phyllis Hyman and the Quiet Storm and the 930 Club
some where in my life time…..with the quickness 
i was allowed
with all my complexities contradictions and layers
pickles and pumpkin seeds 
i have levels and layers
layers built by chocolate city


pcitured: me’shell n’degeocello another sister made of chocolate city layers..she was a go go rock star shot in chelsea piers when it was still a hanger by Ruven Afanador (of course)
