Pray together

Congregate together

Hear the Word

Fill your hearts

Let prayer cover

Your thoughts

Your actions

Pray together.


Conversant with it

The conversant trait

Or is there one?


It is what we are into

So familiar with.

Like good dancers

Do the party moves

Extremely well

Because they are so

Conversant with it.

The Black Panther – an Assay Test for Vibranium or Black People?

From the time I saw the promos of the Black Panther film, I was excited to watch it and for sure my family and I were there to see it in 3D.  I confess, I don’t think I have heard of it as a comic, but I love Marvel and Sci-fi films so my introduction to it as a movie just blew me away.  The message of a strong and empowered black African women warriors of the Kingdom of Wakanga was great.  The King and most of the Royal family were dealing responsibly with choices they made regarding the ownership of Vibranium.  With such a hi-tech laboratory and a clever Princess who was a scientist, the mountain ore’s assay test must have been a welcome asset. The consequences therefore of such a valuable mineral resonated a timely wake-up call to this wholesome and hidden country being pulled on to the international stage.

No story is complete without the relationships elements of family, nations, social conscience and equality.

The film oozes QUALITY, in fiction meets real life, in scratching the African and African-American and Afro-Caribbean relationship dialogue.  Who are we to each other? What’s stopping us being connected?  Is this the test?

I applaud MARVEL the makers of this film and the actors for a superb job.  It was exemplary in the story line, the quality of the acting, directors and the producers, the sets, the locations, the costumes, the music, the sound effects, the financiers and everyone involved.  I sound like I have just received an Oscar for watching it and I am thanking everyone.

Go see Chadwick Boseman as the Black Panther, Michael B Jordan as Eric Killmonger, Lupita Nyong’o as Nakia, Danai Gurira and many others.   I am going to watch it again and again.


United Nations of Costumes 

The costume showed off the cultures of the university students.  It made for a colourful event when each nation’s name was called out and its citizens came in their resplendent in the national clothes.

It was a United Nations of Costumes.  Laughter could be heard all over and it made me wonder why ever would there be wars.  There is nothing wrong with having rose-tinted glasses mixed with hope for a better world.


The conjured performance of tricks went down well with the crowd.  Sweets and balloons were popping up out of jacket pockets and landing in the laps of the amused audience.

No one comes away from Mr Fenton, the Magician’s show empty-handed.
