    Booga Town - Rebecca Stinson

    25F84838-EFDA-4EE9-BFD9-54BC62AB83F7
    I'm Picka, Picka Blake. Yes it's an unusual name but so was everything else back in those days. Daddy thought it was a fitting name 'cause' as he would say, "I 'Picka' over every creature on this earth." He was talking about me of course. The name fit right in with the odd canopy of trees that nestled the town like furniture or the little, neatly p...

    My Flesh Can Not See

    318FD9B2-4E1F-421D-A176-3FE16144073C
    God is truly awesome and to Him I give all the Honor and the Praise. Jesus Christ is my Lord and Savior, for whom shall I fear. . . Over the last month, God has been forging partnerships and breaking strongholds in my life. God has removed key players replacing them with powerhouses that I couldn't see in the flesh. I can be nothing but transparent...

    The Bad Rap of the Preacher

    730E7A69-930B-40B8-9850-C1A93CB14BD1
    ​I would argue that some of the greatest civil rights work toward social justice has been lead by American Black preachers, with Dr. King at the forefront of it all. I would debate that our preachers were the first “grass roots” organizers with Nat Turner at the helm. I would dispute anyone that minimizes the impact of Blac...

    “Dearest Husband” - June - by Salute Da Philosopher and Dearest

    61FFEF56-71B1-4271-BE62-C00E3C9C2D1B
    June 2 Dearest Husband, I'm not sure why you are pissed about me asking a question. If it was nothing you wouldn't feel any kind of way. I'm going to table that until we speak in person though. I couldn't make it up there last week and I feel lost without you. I need new glasses Hun. It's like my vision keeps going in and out. I definitely can't co...

    He Ain’t Yo Husband

    E2A2BF20-BD7F-472D-BCEA-E73716D6F619
    While you crying over spoiled milk he's putting a smile on someone else's face. Why are you crying? It's obvious that he didn't care about you to begin with. Most people in prison tend to look for comfort from whoever is willing to give it to them at the moment. So, they do watever they have to do to get it. Lying and manipulation is two of th...

    “Dearest Husband”, May - by Salute Da Philosopher & Dearest

    70CB3DEE-E88F-40EF-A7FF-FB9646656BB6
    May 1 Dearest Husband,  My heart is filled with love for you but the pain of leaving you there doesn't get better with time. You keep a smile on your face like it's not you with the bid and after all these years you stay positive. When you go back behind that steel door I feel like I'm the one in a cell and this is just some crazy dr...

    Abuse is the New Suicide

    CA4ED803-C90D-415A-80DD-28C9E03B12C7
    I don’t know about you but I can’t see in the dark. So, I’m ashamed to tell anyone what I have allowed in my life. A slow, unconscious suicide, walking in a shadow of death. But seeking relief from other pains, from other things is why I started to self medicate with self hate. You see I had this big hole in my heart. Pierc...

    “Disguised As God” - Keeping up with the Con

    84767DED-C4D3-4986-9EB4-CDE24195D232
    My hand was hurting from all the writing I had done. I felt like I was in grade school when the teacher would have you write punishment sentences 100 times each from the board. I only had 2 more letters to go. I tried to get at least 10 in every night. I was good at math and it was just basic probability that I would catch at least 2 winners a mont...

    “Disguised as God” - Visitation

    C2959F59-6273-4B26-A6EB-BD632808D071
    I knew the congregation would fill quickly in the large cafeteria like space because it was Saturday. The blue connective chairs with an end table after every two, was where we had our weekly date. The sterile, cold environment with a small tv, that you could not hear, mounted to the wall served as our entertainment. There was a mural of what looke...

    “Disguised As God” - Am I Next?

    9DDE99EE-142A-4F0E-9B66-B34327E81F18
    "Can we all agree that the relationships between slaves were complicated ones? In many cases, husbands and wives lived on separate plantations, unable to build a bond that promoted love and security. But they still "jumped the broom", as the West Africans of Ghana taught them to. Marriage between slaves was real. You had to respect them for even co...

    I’m not slow . . .

    1F31E6D7-6620-4BB6-8A92-5467BBEE031B
    ​The first time we laid together confirmed he didn’t love me but he was so good as he grinded above me. I mean I was astounded by how he just took me, licking every inch, killing my spine with ecstasy in me. I never got it that way before but I knew he didn’t love me. Kissing my lips below my blouse, doing those things to me.&nb...

    I Wrote

    CB0BBF29-CD28-47C9-AFA1-B03931E7A4C4
    I was humiliated into my business. I was shamed into being the “boss”, with haters waiting for my failure. Nobody wanted to stand side by side with Dearest. I was taunted, mocked, thrown away by a whole circle of people that I called family, so I wrote. I wrote in the small bedroom of my mother’s house after losing everything to love . . ...

    Independence Day

    The 4th of July Mirage

    92FEC1FF-9564-4FCD-8F9B-C6ED418207C7
    "Let this be the teaching day to show what ideology you will play, teaching our children that they will never be "boss", when it's half of our race that is certainly lost." Today some will celebrate, the country we forgot to liberate. The land of the free, forgot to see me. The term liberation is "the act of setting someone free from impr...

    Some

    03CF164D-A24C-4E1A-BC23-A4182582AAD6
    Someone said I do not say enough about how Black females fall short and I'm quick to jump on Black men. I slept on this last night and my reasoning has been that some Black women have been deaf for a long time and I felt hopeless dealing with some of my sisters. The betrayal that comes out of this village for me has been grievous to say the least. ...

    Dearest Diaries

    Dearest Diaries
    ​ Jesus healing the bleeding woman (or "woman with an issue of blood" and other variants) is one of the miracles of Jesus in the Gospels (Matthew 9:20–22, Mark 5:25–34, Luke 8:43–48). I will be preaching at my very first woman’s conference on Sunday, April 22nd in Cleaveland, NC. My process for preparing is to sit and let the Holy Spirit take over....

    Love Played Me

    Love Played Me
    ​I wrote "Disguised as God" in the most disquietude state. And all I could tell myself is I need to get this off of me. I wrote the book through the tears and anguish I was facing not taking into account it wasn't ready. I published the book at the end of September, facing abandonment, divorce papers, homelessness and depression all at the sam...
