    I was talking with Destee recently, and she made mention of something that I posted that got her to thinking about this wonderful space she created.

    Her "vision", if I may be so bold as to put words in her mouth, saw a place that we could go to to be "safe" in talking about the things that WE need to talk about. She saw a place where we could kick it with other Black people and feel that here is someplace where they know the walk I'm taking; they know the flak under which I'm baking; they know the anger that has me shaking.

    What she envisioned was/is a Place of Healing. And, with Love, Style and much Patience, she "did the [email protected] thang"! Bless You!

    She mentioned that reading that post got her to thinking that she hadn't put the word up there in the banner. Well, I got to looking at that "mission statement", and it is true; the word "healing" is not in there.

    But, it doesn't need to be.

    Don't that just scream "Healing"?!

    One reads that line and something way down inside says "HEY! There's a Healing happenin' up in here!!!" And once you come inside and look around; sho `nuff - there is Healing happening all up in this place e'er'where!!!! Like they say, "the first hit is free", and then you're hooked. Oh! I am so joyous to be addicted to this one!


    I got to thinking some more: Ya know? "Maybe if there was just a small tagline added at the end?" Under that line (no, it's not quite a "mission statement". A statement of purpose?), place the logo. And then under the logo, add a little tagline (signature), something like, "Just for the Healing of it." Or, maybe, add this little bit to the end of that line, massage the line into two semi-equal length segments that are about 2/3rds of it's width and center it? <shrug> ("Demn it, Jim! I'm a doctor, not a marketing whiz!" "Bones", Star Trek) Anyway. It was just a thought.

    Love and Hugs to all!

    Well, if I'm gonna paraphrase "Bones", I might as well "Shoop" it a bit with "Salt -n- Pepa":

    "Just for the yell I get. m-m-hmm; Just for the Healing of it!" :)

    I'm glad I came across this site. It's one of the few out there that blacks are able to communicate freely without all of the silliness, such as racism and sexism present in other forums.
