Would you consider co-parenting with a close friend?
May 4, 2019

Once upon a time, there was a poet who oh so eloquently flows to the music while the words escapes him named Samson. He posed a question in his Instagram stories and a wordist who oh so eloquently captures verbiage from what she sees in the likes of Chanel Speedy. Due to her clicking Samson’s story it formed a script and it goes a little something like this.

Carol’s Daughter

Samson: Would you consider co-parenting with a close friend?

Chanel Speedy: Being that our generation doesn’t share the same bond our grandparents or parents may have had? Before I answer your question as I just added on another question LOL.

In this situationship and or arrangement if I may is there LOVE though? The void can not be replaced with another one. Personally, I can’t get involved with someone I am not drawn to as far as a connection. Otherwise, it is meaningless to me.

It was a running joke with one of my guy friends that if we both are single by said age then we are just going to build a family like build a bear. When it was all said and done there was not a connection on that level so in reality it was literally just a joke.

This is why I don’t like answering hypotheticals because when the time comes will you sink or float? You learn how to swim in calm waters. If a shark is in your rearview are you going to remember your breathing techniques? In that moment, so many factors have entered the equation anxiety, panick and survival mode has now kicked in.

Samson: I agree with you. The love factor plays a role. I do know friends who love each other deeply; not on a relationship level but I do believe the love and feels matter. I predict friends that end up co-parenting probably end up being together because maybe the bond is special but I do believe if people are jumping into it to fill a void it won’t work. There has to be some level of love there for this to be a beautiful experience. Connection is important I guess if it’s there go for it. But if it’s not nah because as you said that’s meaningless.

Chanel Speedy: Love is meant to be felt in any relationship unless it is a take away in which it becomes draining because it’s one sided. To love. To be in love. To have love for someone all different forms but the bottomline is still love. Similar to Kehlani I don’t know her situation with her friend but they are happy and she is deep so that may be a deeply rooted love like none other experienced. I think it is beautiful.

To bring a child up in a realm of that forceful magnitude is amazing. That bond makes it more special. The child who you have to water is the feature presentation, the new director and chief in charge everything will revolve around this little bundle of joy. A stable environment of learning, healthy habits and stages of progression should be rewarded because the love is present. I personally do not settle as dust does. However, to each it’s own.

Some are filling voids and it shows because you are not healed from trauma in your life from what you have been subjected to. The cycle continues. Where does end though? Someone has to choose themselves over a crave, desire or temporal pleasure. The lack there of makes it meaningless. Two lost people are going to be lost. If one is found they in return can teach the other. Let’s use a map, google, read a book, go to therapy etc. Heal, be uncomfortable to love, to be and feel loved. I like this conversation and where this is going. This should be read by others just a thought. These are the type of discussions we need to be having. I appreciate your curiousity and I’m glad I had time today to click on your story.

Samson: That was very well said, I like that and I agree love is still love in all of its forms as long as it’s real and rooted from a good place that love will be beautiful but yes many are filling voids subconsciously and consciously. I feel that too, we live in a strange world but bottomline is I can definitely agree if two people decide to do this. It just can’t be for a filling or repacking of a void but for the genuine good of this little being that the two would have to raise. I appreciate you jumping in on this talk and I will for sure have some of these conversations displayed because it’s important. I appreciate you for clicking in and getting involved.

I feel that both individuals have to know themselves and live themselves first.

The new hot spot is Harlem Hops
June 9, 2018

Are you ready for the new stop for Beer, Booze, Bites and Beats? Well look no further than Harlem Hops! Harlem Hops is located in the heart of Harlem (2268 Adam Clayton Powell Jr Blvd New York, NY 10030).

Harlem Hops is a black owned and operated business promoting, advocating and introducing the community to brewers of color. Harlem Hops is a collaborative effort of 3 friends. Kim Harris, Stacey Lee and Kevin Duane Bradford all shared a vision and accomplished major goals while establishing a brand to promote and uplift the culture.

This new spot is very cozy whether you are sitting at the bar or a low table top you will feel welcomed. Be sure to take in the decor and pay attention to the signs as they will make you smile. Did I mention Harlem Hops is equipped with a backyard? It is a space that is open to host your birthday parties, guys or girl’s night out or even your anniversary.

The beertenders are very knowledgeable in the area of craft beer. The beer flights are such a cute presentation and an exploration of your taste buds with selections of cider, IPA, Lager and so much more.

There is an array of tasty bites of sausage and pretzel, tater tots to the poppin patties (my favorite was the sausage and pepper patty). Be in for a spicy kick of flavorful deliciousness.

DJ Kamala Muse was in charge of the beats as she kept the party going with classic jams and an ode to Prince as the exclusive preview was indeed on his birthday. The booze include Purple Rain which is a refreshing specialty cocktail to honor the legend.

Special appearances included: Ariane (Love & Hip Hop Atlanta) and B. Scott (American television personality). Overall, if you are in Harlem support this new business and explore your palette, relax, social with a group of your friends because it is a VIBE!
