Happiness is a Cause...

    
Happiness is a Cause...

Happiness is a cause, not a result. Which explains why there are plenty of people who appear to have every reason for happiness, but are in fact miserable. And there are others who seem to have no reason to be happy, yet they are as happy as can be.

There are many people that find themselves waiting for a reason before allowing themselves to be happy. The problem is that reason will likely never come. But when you find yourself able to be happy even though there's no reason for it, pretty soon an abundance of reasons will start to appear.
When you choose to smile, there will be much to smile about. When you choose to be thankful, there will be plenty of reasons for being thankful. Remember that happiness is a cause, not a result. Don't make your happiness conditional. When you do, you'll limit it and drive it away.
So instead of waiting for happiness to flow toward you, let it flow from you. Such happiness will never fail to find its own very good reasons. After all, happine ...READ MORE

Beautiful Minds

    
Beautiful Minds

Beautiful Minds...

...Much like jazz... they have no rhythm or no rhyme

Unexpected improv patterns

Impromptu peaks, plateaus and valleys

I even dig the darkest places

Like cognac and live blues in sexy night spot spaces

Tucked into a cozy booth

Where shadows hide your inner truth

Thoughts come in waves of depth and intensity

Much like the soul stirring bass of R&B

And ideas come and go in droves

Few settle in to make themselves at home

Yeah, your mind is like sweet music

And I love the way you use it

Not of sound mind some might say

But I love all of the sounds you play

An infinitely intelligent instrument

Playing wisdom and words and wondrous whit

I see you...

And I get you

Unlike most mere mortals do

I hear you... mentally
No need to explain verbally

Beautiful... dangerously
Exuding and executing creative mastery

I'm so attracted to your mind that I can't get you out of mine...

Perhap ...READ MORE

All For The Love...Find Your Niche.

    
All For The Love...Find Your Niche.

This music game is literally a race between artists where no one truly knows where the destination lies. Honestly, I've seen plenty of artists come and go....and I can't say that I've been in it as long as some others. At least it doesn't feel like it's been that long.

At any rate, I realize with technology and the constant push of music in the social media pipeline, how and where does an artist find their place? What makes one artist better than the other? How does an artist gain more attention? Because it's clearly not about talent. But it has never been about talent, huh? I believe it's more about a niche than talent. There were only a handful of artists in the 80's and 90's that appeared polished at the beginning of their careers. The rest of them just brought something different to the table. After that, it was up to them to keep their spot. I would list, but I honestly don't feel like putting that much thought into it. So, you tell me and we'll see where we agree or d ...READ MORE

Syncere is back, with 21 Questions!

    
Syncere is back, with 21 Questions!



We all love this thing called hip hop, but the past few weeks have left me baffled, mystified and downright stupefied.
Without further adieu, here are twenty-one questions that hip hop needs to answer immediately.



  • Lil Kim? (Her entire existence is a question in 2014.)

  • Seriously, who told Lil Kim that Nicki Minaj was referring to her when she said "Queen of Rap" on Beyonce "Flawless Remix"?

  • If anything, shouldn't Lil Kim have a qualm with Beyonce since she's the one that technically stole her name "Queen B(ee)"?

  • Who keeps advising Lil Kim to make records about Nicki Minaj and not the million other topics available?

  • Oh, that's right. Did you forget Lil Kim doesn't write her own rhymes?

  • Why did Beyonce ...READ MORE
