Wishes turn to dreams come true

  Posted by Picasa

Ahhhh...today was a lovely Saturday. When you wish upon a star and perhaps say a prayer or two in the wind, beautiful things happen... I visited a couple of black-owned bookstores in LA; Zahras and Eso Won. Both had my new book, My Life Is All I Have. The young lady behind the counter at Zahras was speaking with other customers about the book and I overheard her saying it was "flying off the shelves and had been asked about weeks before the book was released." I was pleased to hear that and then I stepped in and introduced myself. I was proud but pride dont come close to stepping inside heaven aka the arms of someone I've missed and was hoping to see. Someone who means the world to me and again I want to wish her a happy belated birthday(just in case she's watching).. She still remains so very special to me. My own personal early birthday gift was seeing her smile and hugging her tight. I thank all powers that be for making today the way it was... beautiful like her... And her last words to me were "you smell like fabric softener." Yeah, that's my favorite cologne...Downey.. Ha! WarmBlessings *

For all who know and love you, what is happening is not a shock.....what is most beautiful is see your pure amazement. Again, your lack of arrogance is a delight. To find a man who is confident yet not arrogant is a rarity... All the more deserving...

Someone said the same thing to me the other day....

I smiled...maybe even blushed...and said...yea, I've been wearing downey for years....*smiles*

Kudos to you and your book "flying off the shelves". Are you coming to the Harlem Book Fair THIS year? You said you would since you didn't make last year.......???
