Between birth and death there is this great journey of life with many stops and starts, mountain tops and deep valleys. Along they way we make and lose many friends. But along they way we are in constant thought. How much we are thinking, how deep those thoughts go and how varied the selections, will be as varied as the snowflakes that drift on the plains. This is just my journey and my thoughts.
It aggravates me so much when I read about Asian characters. They are all described as having “black hair” and “narrow/angled eyes” and “yellow skin.” Worse still, Asians are not described at all. The author assumes that the reader will know what an “Asian” will look like,…
Nichelle Nichols talks to a group of students at NASA Mission Control in 1977 and visits the Lewis Research center that same year.
In the mid-1970s, Nichols has given a speech that criticized NASA for not selecting women and people of color as astronaut candidates. The agency’s response was to hire her to find and recruit talented minorities and women, and she did exactly that. In her tenure as a recruiter, she helped the agency bring five women, three African American men and an Asian American male on board.
if you don’t think this lady is the best. You’re lying to yourself and we can’t be friends
I love the way that history works behind the scenes
You got Lucille Ball pushing to make Star Trek happen
You got MLK pleading with Nichelle to stay on the show
And then you get Nichelle helping motherfuckers get jobs at NASA
that is the tightest shit and if you don’t like you can get off my blog
Nails! All three photographs are of my nails and my last 3 nail designs. These are my real nails but a pro paints them with a manicure; a little self-care treat. I started growing them a few of months ago. The first photo is most recent; I had them filed down a bit. They started getting too long. I’ve never had my real nails this long before though. Fun. ❤
