I thought the World had FREEDOM.

Included in your purchase, the right to be however you wanted. Like validation, not worrying about the ticket when you roll in the parking lot because the hotel will stamp it and make it complimentary. You know that kinda validation, self-validation: where what you say, what you buy, what you think, what you don’t do makes you Worth something. 

I thought the World had Freedom. 

Not within any flag or pledge.

Within indiviuduality, within our differences and our commonalities: the freedom to be sweet or the wherewithal to cuss everybody and take they lunch money, as these corporations and meter maids will oft do. 
But slowly
That freedom 

When I wasn’t so shiny and “didn’t have it like that” in the words of Drake, who was I then?


The first letter in identity.

What gives us our identity? Who gives us our identity?
Well, we can all agree that our parents give us our race, our family gives us our heritage, our ethnicity gives us our location.

But, now really, who gave any of that?

Back in the beginning

In the time before time

In the dark void

He was. 

I have experienced an enchanted day of defeat and victory. I will r ravel it here. He breaks CHAINS, yall. Try God.

Reconciliation and Love, True Love are in Him and in loving people. When you extend love and thankfulness, doors open. 

May your autumn be a thing of beauty.



Now see, Miz RetroStank is so many different things (aren't we all?), but namely, she IS a Chistian, wife, mother, light, poetess, songwriter, actress, fashion show coordinator, scriptwriter, freethinker, artist, ATLien, and a weirdo with a love for culture and healing. She wants you to know that you can BE, DO, and HAVE anything and everything through Christ! She is native to the third coast, specifically the Southern kingdoms of Arkansas and Georgia. Sweet as pie, good as gold, and free as a bird, she is the only girl of three chill'un, and lawd, did that make for some imagination and shopaholic tendencies. Her father was an Army man and her mama is an infinitely enthusiastic and loving lady. In any case, exposure to different places, expectation of excellence, and a homeopathic childhood environment, majorly tilted her towards uniqueness; she was THAT girl who wore a dragon-print dress with a mandarin collar one day and a funky TLC-inspired look complete with ponytails and barrettes the next. So, by now, you're understanding that she is all about the spice of life. So sit back, buckle your seat-belt, and enjoy "the Funky ride all around the world" (in the words of Outkast).

Two Cents, anyone?
