A New Day Will Come...

"And I just know we'll have a good time..." Runaway - Janet Jackson


I must admit, I have been a bit neglectful in my musical playground last week and weekend.  There were no shows or interviews done on my end.  I needed to get away for a hot minute and do me.  I was up in DC doing it up with my girl Vivrant Thang and wow, I had a ball.  Great company, amazing museums (that Smithsonian is no joke) and great vibe all around.  I will be going back soon, that's for sure.

In short, I did attend the exhibit Road To Freedom at The Smithsonian.  If you happen to be in DC anytime soon, please check it out.  It is a riveting display of photos from a time where Martin, Rosa, Coretta and everyone else fought for our rights and freedom and paved a way for Mr. Barack Obama to overcome the odds and become That One in The White House.  


I had goosebumps when I left the exhibition.  The Maverick and I also attempted to snap a few shots in a "NO PHOTOGRAPHY" zone and where eyed by security after like white on rice.  Here is my favorite that I happened to get a snap of.


I will be back to my musical self as soon as I get back in order.  So much to do, so little time.  But what else is new?  Story of my life and everyone else's. 

Flashback of the day:  I had to go all J.T. on ya.  No, not Justin Timberlake.  Lawd.  This is one of my favorite Kool & The Gang tracks.  I loved me some J.T. back then...


See y'all soon...
