Good morning friends and family. I'm back in Los Angeles. The Oakland trip was great. The shows, the people, the connections. The Grooveology party that I shoot once a month was Saturday night was a lot of fun. On the business side it was lighter in attendance that normal. I heard that there were a lot of Grammy parties in the area so we guessed that was the reason. Sunday Laura and I went to see Sonia Sanchez at the Nate Holden Theatre. How many ways can I say awesome woman?! Her latest book, MORNING HAIKU is brilliant. I'm on my way now to Victorville to give the speech on African-Americans in the Civil War. I know that's a lot of stuff for one paragraph, but that's what's up.
Be your best you today.
