From the desk of Savannah J

This past December 18th marked the 15th anniversary of the death of my son or as society refers to him, my step son. He died at the age of 17 as a result of injuries sustained in a car accident. For five long weeks, my now ex-husband and I made the hour and a half drive that it took to visit with him. We would go down on every Friday afternoon after getting off from work and stay until Sunday night. For the entire five weeks that he lay in the trauma unit, he...

Booty Shake?

From the desk of Savannah J

Good evening family. I have recently been pondering this latest phenomenon among young ladies called twerking or ratcheting. I call it the booty shake. When I think on this, I wonder what possess these beautiful young women and makes them believe they have to bend over for a young man and shake their butts to gain attention. I'm really taken aback when I see them bend over and touch the ground giving full access to something that should be reserved only for a...

From the desk of Savannah J

I work night shift in a hospital in my area. We have been getting ready for a visit from the group that certifies hospitals. It's quite an undertaking and there is also much tension in the air; so much so that I even found myself caught up.

As we worked hard to prepare and make sure we were not only polished, but spit shined, I commented to a co-worker, if we stayed ready, we wouldn't have to go through all of this. It's a lot like our homes, if we kee...

From the desk of Savanna J.

I recently attended a conference for health care professionals. There were several persons of color in attendance. There was one young lady who was very attractive and "Dressed to the 9's" as my mother used to say. During one of the breaks, I caught her eye and complimented her look. Her reaction surprised me although looking back, I don't know why. She left me feeling and as though my compliment as well as I were insignificant, if you will.

Now, I'm n...

Are you kidding me?!

From the desk of Savannah J.

Today, I watched a short clip of a man being brutally beaten on a New York Subway because he asked several young men not to spit inside the car. The young ladies who were filming the beating on their cell phone could be heard laughing and cheering the perpetrators on. The gentleman was beaten and kicked in the head for quite a few minutes. What disturbed me most about the situation was the fact that no one tried to help the victim. He attempted to fight bac...

I have recently developed unexplained joint pain and for a writer, that is a problem. It all started after my doctor prescribed a certain Cholesterol medicine for me. Well, one of the side effects of the medication is, joint and muscle pain; on a scale of 1 to 10 mine was an 8.

After a couple of visits with my doctors physician's assistant, (P. A.) it was suggested that I have blood work sent for testing. She tested me the first time for Rheumatoid Arthritis, which came bac...

Who am I?

Welcome to my blog. For those of you who don't know me, here's a little about who I am. I was born and raised in a small city outside of Philadelphia Pa called Wilmington Delaware. I grew up in the area of Wilmington known as "Little Italy". It was a wonderful place to grow up because I was exposed to many different cultures.

Not only did I experience the rich Italian culture of my neighbors, but the community directly behind mine housed a Greek Orthodox church and neighboring that, wa...
