Happy Birthday Tupac Amaru Shakur, Rest Brother.


When I awoke this morning, I had Tupac on my mind. Tomorrow would have been Tupac’s 41st birthday.  I love Tupac.  I love his music.  I love his words.  I love him.  I’ve mentioned how Tupac made a serious impact on my life before.  He literally saved my life.  I know that may sound outrageous to some people and that’s okay.  My only regret is that I never had the opportunity to meet him or see him perform live.  I have no doubt in my mind that he would have had a major impact not just on the music industry but the world if he would have lived. He was a thinker.  Some say a revolutionary.  In spite of how the media may have portrayed him, there was something about him that allowed him to connect with people. I knew Tupac was major when my mother embraced him as a “son”.  My mother’s favorite Tupac song is “Dear Mama”.  When the news came that Tupac had left this earth, my mother shed tears.  I remember the moment I heard the report, time stopped.  I felt like I lost a brother.  The pain cut deep for me.  He was ALWAYS be special to me.  Every time I hear “Me Against the World”, I smile.  ‘Pac I feel you here.

Keeping Your Head Above Water

In my head repeatedly being sung, I hear that phrase from the “Good Times” theme. I am just trying daily to stay on a positive note. It seems that whatever will happen does. I keep trying to convince myself that I KNOW that everything happens for a reason and this is the path that I am suppose to be on right now. But some days it just doesn’t work. I just gotta remember to breathe every now and then. I am just looking for those “Better Dayz” like Tupac said. I just wanna see some light at the end of the tunnel to let me know everything is OKAY. Anybody got a flashlight?!
