My beloved grandmother passed away almost one week ago and I’m in DC & Baltimore for the funeral. I’ll share my tribute to her with you later this week.
In the meantime, this means there’ll be very light posting from me this week.
There’s my blood family and there’s my JJP fam — thanks for being there and for coming back.
Above, I offer you Mos Def with Black Thought & The Roots performing “Umi Says”. Umi means grandmother. One of the last things my grandmother said to me was “By our Light, enlighten.”
Shine your light for the world to see…
