Here at ThinkOrgano, we are honoring Black History. We have traveled both here and abroad and I have come back with some new ideas. It appears that our civil rights fight will have to remain! With the new administration, we will have more time to reflect. I’ve been working on a series of discussions over coffee. It may be a good time for me to get started.

RDP Tuesday: intent.

It is amazing. My intent isn’t to treat using a falsehood. Having a Christian doesn’t seem yo solve ways of the world. If the real me gets out, I’ll be more than loved. Sharing myself is no longer east or different. Not like magic.

Hello and happy Tuesday! My prompt today is intent.

What story or poem or photograph brings us your  intent? Link to today’s post and then look at other people’s interpretation. Have a wonderful Tuesday.
