Can you Understand the Word: TRANSITION ?

September 9, 2009

We should remember the after fight portrait of George Foreman, in Zaire, Africa, after he had spent his “youth” on Muhammed Ali’s four-sided “semi” hammock. Today he can “talk about it” as the LIFE’S lesson that made his determination to “go on”. He DID become ‘WORLD HEAVY WEIGHT BOXING CHAMPION’ … the OLDEST EVER in modern history.

So many of us “lose” our way for a time, for whatever reason the “fox don’t trot likes they used to”. The sad thing about the “once upon a times” are simply a matter of PERSPECTIVE, the distance of “descent” from what ever level an accuser stakes their report of the demise of the accused’s abilities. Some of the “fallen” don’t even recognize what has, supposedly, happened to them. Sixteen year old [Alberta Hunter] wrote a few of [Bessie Smith\’s] most recognized ‘work’/ MUSIC, yet didn’t begin her own career until she’d lived an entire other lifetime.

We’ve gone through the temporal stage of [payola] and the [\”race records\” eras. But if you can find some of those “forgotten” stars of those times you’ll find that they didn’t disappear, but found more lucrative gigs. Remember that the cast of “[Amos and Andy“] were ‘somebodies’ before they had to replace the melinin-lacking originators.

But, no matter. There have been this world’s population that have gone “TO”, “FROM”, the crux of this terse is that the third part of “TO/ FROM” is NOW. I don’t know if Morgan Freeman is the Author of this, but I believe he was quoted to say that…”ADVERSITY doesn’t build CHARACTER, IT REVEALS IT“. On that NOTE I present to you this series of such from one who is returning from a vacation “in Hell”, as you’ll hear Satan has been heard to say that… “We’ve Lost this one.” …and as Mama said…

.

Whitney Houston Brown has stepped through the briers and brambles planted in her path, ‘THOUGHT IT OVER’, and re-entered life in a manner that can only be termed as a MASTER CLASS.

The maturation of her voice and expression HAD to be learned by [“osmosis“]… (until she’d “HAD ENOUGH” !). But as the video shows THIS is going to be one of the BETTER classes that have been given in SOME TIME !

This is one of the BEST TRANSITIONS. I hope we all can TRANSITION this well.
