It is time to have a real conversation about all of the allegations of rape that have come against the famed Dr. Bill Cosby. Not for the benefit of Mr. Cosby, or for the benefit of the women … Continue reading

Hello Butterflies! I hope each of you had an amazing Christmas Holiday!
Wrapping up Christmas also means wrapping up another year. Where in the world did 2012 go? Seems like only yesterday I was creating the Butterfly Bridge….time flies when you’re having fun-and have Wings!! lol
Since 2012 was considered The Year of the Woman by many-and 2013 the Epoch of Eve by yours truly, I thought it would be great to do a countdown over the last 5 days of the year of the Top 5 most Inspirational Butterflies of 2012 as well as the Top 5 Most Inspirational Butterfly Moments of 2012.
Countdowns aren’t just used to allow us to reflect on the past, they also prepare us for the future. All of us can’t go into the “new” with a bang. Sometimes it’s good to ease in…and countdowns let us do just that.
So, visit us tomorrow as we begin the Countdown to 2013…..
Who do you think should be on the list? Who do you think should be #1?
Did you have your own personal Butterfly Moment in 2012? What was it? Share with us and we will share with the rest of the Butterfly Nation!
Hit us up on Facebook or on Twitter with your suggestions!
It’s been one crazy weekend, huh? Tragedy, sadness, fear, guilt, anger, frustration, grief….and we still don’t know why. Why did six adults and 20 children have to die? Why did 22 children have to suffer from the blade of mad man’s knife? Where is God in all this?
What the hell is the world coming to?!
That is the question that we all have. If you are like me, and if you are connected to me in any way then you are, all of those babies belonged to you. And you felt all the pain and had all of the same questions as their parents. I keep going back to the parents. As a mother I can only imagine what is going on in their minds. And just the thought that one person has to go through that brings tears back to my eyes.
For those of you meeting me for the first time, you might not know that I do a Blog Talk Radio show dedicated to indie artists and Global Citizenship. I’m in the midst of changing the show. Instead of the one show, there will be 2: one dedicated to music and the other a talk show about life. Especially the lives of women. I’ll keep you all posted on those.
You can go to http://www.blogtalkradio.com/area165 or search AC 165 Radio in the “podcast” section on iTunes to check out some of my earlier shows. It was an amazing year and a half!. We learned and we grew; were inspired and encouraged one another. And I’m not doing away with that part of the show! I’m still on a journey. And for those of you who were apart of that journey, the trip is not over! We are just going down a new path. I’m expecting Great things in The Butterfly Age!
In the mean time, I want to go back to the old format for a few shows in light of the recent tragedies that have taken place this weekend, along with the fear of impending “doom” on the 21st. All of this death and talk of death is literally killing all of us. What happened this weekend, is unreal to me. I cried like a baby when I saw the report that over 100 bullets were fired into a kindergarten class room…..just typing that makes me sick.
Join me tomorrow at 5:00 PM EST as we talk about “Living in the Midst of Death”.I’m going to talk about how we can move forward and actively stand with those who have lost and stand FOR those who were stolen. I know all of us are hurting, especially the community and the families of these precious babies. And I know there are some of you out there that are truly afraid that the world is ending soon. Don’t feel silly or stupid, your feelings are real. But we can’t stay in fear. Fear is a death word…it kills.
This show is a dedication to LIFE! Life dispels fear and cancels death. Death says to quit, because it’s not worth it. Life says IT’S WORTH IT! And I’m telling you, regardless of what you have been through, it is worth it! In order to truly make some changes individually, communally, nationally and globally family, we have to embrace life as a whole. It can no longer be about “me” anymore. It’s time to get active in this global citizen thing….
So, join me tomorrow on here: AC 165 Radio . This is a 30 minute show, but feel free to call in or join in the chat room. If you’ve never listened to a Blog Talk Radio program, visit this link and learn how you can join in. You can listen via the web or the phone and you can actively chat during the show. You can also call in during a live show and comment if you like. Our phone number is: (619) 393-2881. This is not a toll free number, so charges will apply.
If you can’t listen in at that time, you can still catch it on replay through Blog Talk Radio or on iTunes.
Love to you!!
