Hello. Come on in. The daddy writes about current events, literature, music and, once in a while, drops something on you from back in the day to make you pause and ponder, stop and stare, and begin to wonder. Who knows? You may start to pace the floor, shake your head from side to side, then fall down on bended knees in a praying position and cry, "Lawd, have mercy! What is this world coming to?" Check yourself! But this blog is NOT about the daddy. It's about you: your boos, your fam, your hood, your country...our hopes and dreams of a better tomorrow. So let's make a pact: the daddy will put it on the track if you'll chase it down and hit him back. Together, we can definitely take it to another level. Shall we?"

The Daddy says "Thanks for the love."

We write because we believe the human spirit cannot be tamed and should not be trained.
--Nikki Giovanni, poet

Being unwanted, unloved, uncared for, forgotten by everybody, I think that is a much greater hunger, a much greater poverty than the person who has nothing to eat...We must find each other.
--Mother Theresa

The daddy is feeling grateful to all those who visit his blog. He is overwhelmed by visitor's generosity in giving not only their time but their minds and hearts. You see, many do more than visit or lurk. They go down to the comment section and speak from their hearts.

As for those who come by, lurk for a while and move on, the daddy thanks you too. As for those who come by, read the post, make comments, even come back and dialogue with the daddy or another person who made comments, the daddy is especially appreciates you. As he has said many times before, this blog is not about him but about you: your experiences, your fam, your boos, your community, your state...our country.

A hearty thanks to those who went to the top of my sidebar to let others know that you publicly follow the daddy. For those who didn't, that's okay too.

For those who still may be inclined to let people know you're one of the daddy's followers, a member of his "crew," but hadn't got around to it, do the following:

1. Go to my sidebar;
2. Click on "Follow This Blog;"
3. Click in the space for "follow publicly;
4. Click "Follow" at the bottom. That's all there is to it.

Thanks for coming. Thanks in advance for showing the daddy some love. It will boomerang back to you. Blessings.

You got it. But don't forget the poetry, like the woman who with the crazy hat on who wrote about sex and the down and out, Wendy something.

You share the love with us, so that's the least we can do, MacDaddy :).

anon: I know a couple of poets named Wendy, but I don't think I've posted on them. I'll check, but know that I will be posting on poets, especially the people's poets. Many of these poets are not read in colleges. I'll be posting on a truly great one next week. Let me know what you think. Peace.

Hey hey, Curvygurl: Thanks so much; and you know I'm coming to see you.

Done! Much obliged for stopping by to jam a bit with Big Momma Thornton. There seems to be a number of us in the blogosphere with Chi-town roots! LOL

Like those who signed our Constitution, some large, some small, there are consequences for making your mark. Thanks to fate and a little love daddyBstrong, I will remain rainywalker, the Hillbilly Dante.

I think he's referring to Wanda. I remembner her hat too.

MacDaddy said...

Sjp: Yes! I still love Chicago! And your wonderful blog too. Who knows? Maybe I'll hit the jackpot and get on your blogroll. Thanks again.

Rainywalker: The "hillbilly Dante?" Love it!

anon2: Wanda (not Wendy) is the poet he meant, the one who gave the daddy fever. Thanks.

anon1: Next week I'll try to post another Wanda Coleman story for you, using another one of her "down and out" poems for you. I won't forget.
