Very sought-after, chocolate roses have caught the imagination of all who have seen one. The chocolate rose is known for its inimitable fragrance and rich, cinnamon brown blooms which are redolent of deep, beautiful, sweet chocolate. Some chocolate roses are buds, while others have fully blossomed. A fully blossomed chocolate rose will be matchless for it is complete. And though no chocolate rose will look the same, still all are beautiful. I share with you the chocolate roses I have been fortunate enough and had the pleasure to get a glimpse of.

"Life is very short and what we have to do must be done in the now." ~ Audre Lorde
"Education remains the key to both economic and political empowerment."
“I really don't think life is about the I-could-have-beens. Life is only about the I-tried-to-do. I don't mind the failure but I can't imagine that I'd forgive myself if I didn't try."
Beautiful thought provoking spoken word. Please enjoy listening to black pride and brilliance.
Black women write differently from white women. This is the most marked difference of all those combinations of black and white, male and female. It's not so much that women write differently from men, but that black women write differently from white women. Black men don't write very differently from white men. Toni Morrison in Black Women Writers at Work (1983) by Claudia Tate

All water has a perfect memory and is forever trying to get back to where it was.
As you enter positions of trust and power, dream a little before you think.
At some point in life the world's beauty becomes enough. You don't need to photograph, paint or even remember it.
It is enough.
