Check. Check. Representing the 516.West Indian pride. Memories of our little cul-de-sac on Liberty Ave. All we knew of heaven- Cook outs, fireworks, the deli on the corner. My sisters and I use to pick up our neighbors and friends on our tiny jeep power wheel. Summer nights catching fireflies and looking up at the milky way. Homegrown!

Congratulations Kiel Adrian Scott! Samaria - The Short Film is an official 2015 Student Academy Awards finalist! I'm so proud to be apart of this film. I spent that summer in NY wandering, hoping God would lead me in the right direction- show me which way to go- give me something exceptional to be apart of. Monique Lauren Peters, my friend, brought this script to my attention. It's so powerful and Kiel is such an exceptional artist and friend. Yay! Thanks God.

Maybe her stockings needed to dry. We may never know. But thank you Maria... for inspiring this dizzying and delicious cocktail. #banglife #humpday

I think I know exactly what I need. I pray for what I think I want. But, God knows me better than I will ever know myself and sends experiences and blessings my way that shatter my limited understanding of my own heart's desires. I think this is teaching me faith. I think faith means to trust and, like any relationship, the more time I spend with God in my meditation, the more trusting I've become. So I pray with expectation, knowing that the deepest, most honorable desires of the heart- for peace, for love, for consolation, for health, for sustenance, for friendship, for family, for faith, for justice, for happiness, for achievement, for excellence- are already being fulfilled.

It's inspired by a true story, a band of runners with exceptional determination rise to become cross-country state champions under the leadership of their coach, Jim White. Since then, the McFarland High School cross-country teams have won nine state championships and the small school is considered a powerhouse in the sport.

#LightSkinnedGirls I felt being included in Light Skinned Girls was appropriate because colorism affects ALL women of color. I don't consider myself light skinned, but I am in an industry that has tried to lighten my skin and eyes in publications and promotional materials because they thought it would make me more attractive. I hoped to convey that separating sisters of color from one another is not just divisive, but more importantly, it weakens us when we should be natural allies, working together to achieve more for ourselves, our families and our communities. People who are mad because they think I think I'm light skinned only prove how endemic these tired boundaries truly are. My baby sister's lighter than a brown paper bag, so is my grandmother. My mom is dark skinned and I'm somewhere in between. All of these women are me, and I am them. <a href="http://www.voice-online.co.uk/article/tatyana-ali-considered-light-skinned" target="_blank">http://www.voice-online.co.uk/article/tatyana-ali-considered-light-skinned</a>

Yesterday at the White House celebrating the success of the Affordable Care Act. I got a chance to speak briefly with the President and First Lady. I didn't say any of the things I wanted to say, like "Thank you for not backing down". I guess that's how it is in big moments like this. It's amazing how much has been accomplished since 2008. In life, there's always so much more to be done with new things being constantly added to the list, but it's good to celebrate along the way, to pause and take stock of how far you've come. This picture is for my future grand babies so they can see what there abuelita believed in and stood up for.

I'm so proud of Official Robin Thede Fan Page, nominated for Real House Husbands of Hollywood and The Queen Latifah Show. Yes!!!! My stylist Monique Loren killed it!

I'm learning as I go. I've lived most of my firsts in public. From my first bra to my first kiss, first time live with a band. ;) No one's holding my hand through this but God, and I trust in Him. I dig deep inside only to find there's deeper still to go. If I didn't believe it, or have a vision in my heart, believe that these songs or the way I sing them are important- I wouldn't bother. But I do believe it, so I have no choice. I've lived all of my creativity out in the open. Don't see any reason to stop now. It's for you anyway. It's always been for you. I love you....Time to go deeper.

Wish I felt as good about myself
As I do now then
I would have saved myself a ton of heartbreak
If I knew what I know now
How can I love somebody else?
If I can't love myself enough to know...
I'll know it when I feel it
I'll know it when it takes my breath away
I'll know it when I feel it
Till then I'll wait for it
Till then I'll wait for it
Wait for it...

Lyrics: "Wait for It"
I don't owe nobody no explanations
You can be yourself
Dont have expectations
I;m not here for nothing that serious
I'm having fun so don't fall in love
I spent enough of my time
Chasing something that wasn't mine
I'll know it when I feel it
I'll know it when it taked my breathe away
I'll know it when I feel it
Till then I'll wait for it...

I spent last night going through photos. I found these two from our final Friday night taping of Fresh Prince. We had a cake fight after shedding tears. People don't really understand that we knew how special our time together was. It wasn't special because of popularity or success, but because we were all together, sharing it. It's like it was all meant to be, and we could feel it. In the photo from left to right there's Jeff Pollack, Joseph Marcell, Ross Bagely Jr., Alfonso Ribeiro, Shelley Jensen our director, me, Karyn Parsons Sweet Blackberry, Quincy Jones and Will Smith. Jeff Pollack and James Avery left us.
James was a philosopher king. He taught me to love history and poetry. He taught me that being an artist is one of the noblist professions. He gave me black baby dolls every Christmas. He used to joke that I'd visit him in the old actors age home when I got older. Every end is a beginning. I know James is at peace.
Thanks everyone for all your kind words and thoughts. It means a lot to his family and friends.
A Poem Of Friendship by Nikki Giovanni
We are not lovers
because of the love
but the love
We are not friends
because of the laughs
but the tears
I don't want to be near you
for the thoughts we share
but the words we never have
I will never miss you
because of what we do
but what we are

People are asking a lot of questions- wondering what the Affordable Care Act (Obama Care) really is, unsure of how it works and uncertain about how it will impact their lives.
Go to www.healthcare.gov. It will answer all of your questions.
CHANGE is often uncomfortable, sometimes even frightening. But it's necessary if you want to grow- if you want to evolve. This is the CHANGE we sought. In this moment, the politics are of no consequence. Everyone has access to affordable health care, a human right that was fought for and won. #getcovered
