I’m taking the day off. Among other things, I’m going to get my hair “dyed, fried and laid to the side” as I get ready for my trip to San Francisco tomorrow.
Speaking of hair laid to the side, I recently attended a colloquium on Josephine Baker at Columbia University. That was one fierce sister who showed the world her derrière -- and lots of love as an activist with the French Resistance and the NAACP. Ms. Baker's "Rainbow Tribe" of 12 multi-ethnic adopted children showed that her love knew no bounds.
OK, back to me. It sure would be nice if some of you showed me some love. And, no, I ain’t too proud to beg.
