Welcome back…

or maybe I should say I’m finally back ๐Ÿ™‚ Whew, it was a long summer/early fall. I have had so many life changes. I relocated to the misguided Deep South (they still walking around with confederate flags, y’all) and popped out a baby. Yep, you read right, I had a little one. If you’ve been following the blog you know I have stated no babies for me. And as someone in her 40’s figured those days were over anyway. The joke’s on me!ย  I wasn’t going through menopause after all.

I’ve been enjoying my new role as a mom. It’s hard work and you never know if these kids will even like you when they get older, but for now my baby’s gummy smile is worth it ๐Ÿ™‚

Now that i’m getting adjusted to motherhood, I’m ready to get back to blogging. There is so much nonsense happening out here from the presidential campaign to the continuing murders of black folks by cops (RIP Corey Jones) to the out of control memes on Drake’s Hotline Bling… there’s no way my keys can stay quiet!

However, before I get too deep into it, I am excited about the upgrade on The Wiz movie. A lot of white folks tend not to respect the 1978 film starring Diana Ross and Michael Jackson and an amazing score by Quincy Jones. The film also features the beautiful song “Home” torn to shreds (in a good way) by Stephanie Mills for the stage version. Many white folks think The Wiz is a tacky take on The Wizard of Oz, but The Wiz is more creative than the original film IMO.

I’m looking forward to the live version that will be shown on NBC in December. Hopefully, NBC won’t mess it up.
