“An inspirational book”

Before, Afdre, and After (My stroke . . . oh what fun)

“An inspirational book”

By the Speech-Language Pathologist/Instructor,
City College of San Francisco

Davies 8

“Maureen is an amazing writer whose heartfelt and humorous book tells the story of her stroke and the long road of rehabilitation and recovery.

As a speech therapist, who teaches communication classes to stroke survivors, I found Maureen’s book captured the feelings and struggle that so many individuals experience in their recovery. In our stroke-communication class we read and discussed her book together, and Maureen’s voice and message resonated with everyone.

It is very fortunate for us that Maureen decided that this was the story she would write a book about! This book is a great tool for stroke survivors and is an inspiration to all who read it.”

Emmy dream, 2017

I had a dream that I was up for the Emmy Nomination, and the Emmys were tonight … WHAT?! Did I really get a nomination?

“Yes, you did Maureen.” (I didn’t no who I was talking to, but he/she said that yes, I got a Emmy Nomination!)

emmys-0f2c42e3-7413-4534-befa-cb7b92cb38c4

But that didn’t make sense; I suck at acting, whether TV or movies. I did one minor role in high school, but this is the Emmys, not high school. But now I got Nominated … so weird!

 

I didn’t have a formal attire to go to the Emmys. Oh, still dreaming, someone said, “Don’t worry, I’ll find a dress for you.”

“Thanks!” I said. “I don’t have the cleavage like so many other women do, so nothing too flashy.”

“Okay.”

 

(Flash forward) Now I’m at the Emmys. I didn’t no where I was sitting. Hopefully, someone really famous that I’m sitting next to.

I was checking out other people who were there. Hey … I can’t see any famous people. And where is Stephen Colbert as the host? Am I at a different event? Why isn’t everyone dressed up? Many people sitting down had sodas, popcorn etc.

Am I just watching a movie??! … Aaaaaahh! Where’s the Emmys?!!

 

I can’t remember anything else in the dream. So I guess I’m not up for any Nomination.

Shoot.

 

Résumé?

WATCH “RWISA” WRITE Showcase Tour ~ Nonnie Jules (29)

Jan Hawke INKorporated

Day 29 of the RWISA author blog tour! Today, the tour is taking on a different literary mantle…

“Because of the division that’s going on in our world right now, the hate that’s being stirred up and spewed by these White Supremacist groups, we felt it appropriate and extremely necessary that we share a piece from our President, Nonnie Jules, that needs to be wide-spread.”

(Be sure to click the link at the end of this piece for more information about  Nonnie and her work)

“Does My Life Matter?”

by Nonnie Jules 

I am a black woman, and because of the shade of my skin and coarseness of my hair, because of the fullness of my hips, my lips and the bold colors I wear…some don’t find me as attractive as my fairer counterparts.  You see, I’m no longer your house-maid or here for your sexual pleasure; no…

You Take the Blue Pill, the Story Ends. You Take the Red Pill …

By Linda Mims

 

I was sixteen when I first suspected that I might be the one. I’d seen people in my family striving for excellence all my life. My parents’ friends were creative types who often took time to quiz me about my goals and what I was doing to achieve them. I had been persistently pleading with a leader at my church who had the power to make one of my goals a reality.

This woman headed the Womens’ Ministry. Everything from church announcements to annual celebrations fell under her domain. I wanted to be the youth announcer on the weekly, hour-long radio broadcast that emanated from our church, but she was speaking a language that I didn’t understand.

“Take some…
