I know that you have yet to see Trevor show up in his own story, but it is building up to him, and also if you read well, everything which is being done is on his behalf. I trust that you will find this fourth installation on Trevor enjoyable, as a lot of people emailed me begging for more Trevor.

Good Morning to all, we will be having our book club discussion this evening beginning at 8 pm. The subject for tonight is posted below, all who will be apart of tonight’s discussion will be expected to read. There are also questions related to the subject matter which are expected to be answered. Professor YW, will be the moderator for the evening and for the evenings discussion. He will, when he comes post his own instructions which we will all adhere to. I urge you all that if you have to post any comments not related to this particular post or book club discussion, please make the comments in the TREVOR post, as I want this board to be for just the discussions only. Last week we had a wonderful time and we learned a lot, we thank Lalibela Nile who did a fine job, and I also thank you all for being supportive and showing up. We must learn, this is why we are here on this realm and it is to acquire knowledge and also to pass on knowledge. Knowledge is knowledge, so being selective in what you learn is not wise. you will never know when you need to use what you once rejected to know or learn. Let us use this space for all the good that we can, and learn from each other, let us exercise our brains, and whatever we learn from each other, I urge you all to share, pass it on. Post no videos please, so that the weight of them will not interfere with the post tonight

I remember as a child in Jamaica my mother and her friend Miss Ruth would sit on the veranda discussing the Rapture. I was always at my mothers feet when she and her friends would gather, I loved her so much I could not stand to be away from her for too long. I remember one particular night as these two women spoke and I listened, I became afraid, because according to what they said Jesus was coming back for only a few people, and they would be caught up in the air to go with him to heaven and others, the sinners would be left behind. This was some scary stuff, and I prayed in my little heart for my mother not to be left behind, I do not remember if I prayed for myself, but I do remember feeling afraid.

Good day to you all, I pray that all of you who will read this blog post today had a relaxing weekend, and I pray that Olodumare (God) will bless you all for the coming week to come and for always ase! Last week was a down week for me, spiritually. I felt drained for whatever reason I do not know. I got up half an hour later than normal and that is not me, but I trust God and Orunmila and Osun my Omo Orisha, so I know that all is well, maybe the heavens saw that I needed rest and made me do so willing or unwilling. (E-Bah) Iba Orishas, Iba Ancestors ase!

Good morning one and all. I am not one to be happy and satisfied with anything and stay silent, same as if I am upset or sad. I always show my appreciation and love for you all and today I want to show it again and I suspect that this will become a habit. Last night was wonderful, I am very happy for the support and I am also very proud of all of you. It was the first night of our cultural discussion and it went very well. I want to keep the momentum going and going and going, and I am sure you all feel the same way.

Please remember that there will be our book club discussion tonight beginning at 8pm, Lalibela Nile will be our moderator. I know that the book is quite large and some might not have finished it, but as Cami suggested, you can go through with a note pad and write down key points which connects with you, I would prefer you all to read it however. It is important that we All try to be here for this. In high School, especially if you were schooled in North America, our history, African history, were not taught us, not in the way these scholars which will be introduced to you over the course of time with this book club. All people are welcome to join in, not only people of color, because we should strive to know about each others history, as we are all connected, regardless of what you may believe. I urge the peepers, to join in, knowledge is not only power but it is something which makes you feel good. These discussions will be from now on every Thursday, and so at the end of tonight’s discussion, the assignment for next week will be posted, again if anyone has a topic they would like considered, please let me know. The topic will be on the topic sticky above!
