Bring Me Water

I have been awarded by The True Urban Queen.
I am so honored to be considered by her and she bigged up my Breathing Space.
I am also honored that we happen to be Blogger Friends Forever BFFs. LOL

Though blogging is one of the easiest venues for saying what you feel, when you feel like it, without pretense, there are times when topics elude us, blog beef stirs up, or our readership and commentship goes on the fritz. But for those who delve into the mind, develop new topics to write about or post for discussion, those who post about experiences, current lives and past lives, the things we venture to do, our fears and our accomplishments... oh my gosh, I'm amazed by the creativity of you... You too are Brillante.

I'm reminded of the Erykah Badu song "Kiss Me on My Neck". If anybody knows me, they know that like my other celebrity friends in my head, me and Erykah are tight! I love Ms. Badu and "Kiss Me" is one of my favorite songs.

She says repetitively:

I want somebody to walk up behind me / And kiss me on my neck and breathe on my neck / I want somebody to walk up behind me / And kiss me on my neck and breathe on my neck

If you want to feel me / Better be divine / Bring me water, water for my mind / Give me nothin' / Breathe love in my air / Don't abuse me / Cause these herbs are rare

If you want too feel me / Better be divine / Bring me water for these flowers / Growing out my mind / Give me nothin' just be gentle / Breathe love in my air / Use me, don't abuse me, love me / Cause these herbs are rare

And the meaning behind this song is... she's lost her way, strayed off her path and she wants someone or some being to come behind her and give her the energy, the push she needs to get back on her path. I like the song and when I hear it and sing along, I always think "restore me".

Well folks, I say all that to say, I am restored daily. When the Lord wakes me up and I have bodily abilities, capabilities and faculties -- When I go to my closet and there are clothes and shoes spilling out -- When there's a positive balance in my accounts and I have a j-o-b to saunter into -- When I have friends and family and blog friends and family -- I am restored. All of these things and more are the water and the energy I need to make it through my everyday.

Thank you True Urban Queen.

And now since the controls are in my hands, instead of 7 folks to bestow this honor, I choose 5. Mainly because my blog circle is kinda small and actually I like it that way but in any case, I choose, The Brillante 5:

First, thank you for the loving comment you left at my "spot". It really means so much to me.

Now, as always you have written a beautiful post. And I need to listen to that song because that is how I feel. Confused and needing some one to take my hand.
My emotions are all over the place. One minute I feel I am better the next; I feel as if a cruel joke has been played on me.

But, I know that every time I come pass here to except to smile or to find something that touches my heart just when I need it. Or advice to store away or heed at the moment.

And I could go on. I am so thankful for the internet and these blogs because through them, and I believe divine intervention, I have met someone who I consider a friend and sister.

My goal is to do as you said and surround myself with good things and people. . .including you. I can't wait to met so I can hug you and say thank you.

My post is done (hahahaha).

Queen... When you come to NYC I promise to clear my schedule just to get to see and get to know you better. :)

MzTeeJaye... is great for listening to music and it's how I get through my day.

Kiaya... Thank you! Such a wonderful compliment. I'm glad you found me too and I'm glad I venture over to you.

I had to wait a day to post something because yesterday was very trying. But this was a shining moment in darkness. Thank you!

I never thought you could meet wonderful people through the blog world, although my blog world is small it is filled with great people.

I often read your posts and as I nod my head I think to myself "Wow, I could have written that myself. Amazing how you live parallel lives with someone."

Thanks again, and I have to check out that Badu song.

MsKnowitAll said...

Kay C... Thank you. I hope all is going well now. Yes, check out "Kiss Me". It's on her Mama's Gun release.
