Active Bodhi

It’s duck season ! … Noo, but its definitely PEACH season ! And what better way to celebrate than with some fruit pickin’ !

They say that spontaneous decisions are the best decisions, and I think this was exactly one of those cases. At the spur of a moment a friend and I decided to pack up shop and take a little road trip to Bilpin Fruit Bowl for some fresh and wholesome fruit pickin’. So come rise and shine, we were off to ohh about 10,000 trees worth of fresh harvest. The drive down from Sydney was great, enough to feel like your out of Sydney but not long for the bottom to get too sore from the drive. And the weather could not be better, summer at its fullest and best ! We made really good time. It’s definitely another country really, once you start getting out of…

My First Apartment

Posted on


Hello everyone, reflecting back at the age of 19 researching my first apartment. Remembering so desperately wanting to have an apartment. However, only working part-time while attending school, with a limited budget the first thought was to find a room mate. After careful consideration a room mate was selected. It was a great apartment, the lights and gas was included so the only bills were the rent, phone and food.

In fact, after selecting an affordable apartment which required the rent and the deposit, this was exciting times. Thus, however, after 4 years at the age of 23, an employment opportunity with the Government was offered. Again, exciting times, it allowed the opportunity to move in a larger apartment with new furniture and purchase a car. In fact, after two years of employment at the age of 23 purchasing a home offered considerable stability.

These were exciting times opportunities to learn, grow and strive for great accomplishments. These were ladders of growth that lead to great positions that allows for continued progress. However, it took great sacrifices and discipline. Here are some steps to finding your first apartment and budgeting:

Researching your first Apartment:
1) Newspaper – Research (Apartments for Rent)
2) Apartment- Important consideration
a) Rent Amount and Deposit
b) Utilities Included
c) With furniture or without
d) Sustainable
1) On Bus Line
2) Near a Park
3) Near a Grocery Store
3) Most important – Cleanliness and Maintenance

Researching your first Home:
1) Locate a Broker
2) Drive through area of interest
3) Check Value of Property
4) Compare to the Sale
5) Basic Maintenance – Check for Leaks
a) Last Roof Repair
b) Basement Sealant
c) Garage Roof
6) Repairs and Restoration Required
7) Sustainable
1) On Bus Line
2) Near a Park
3) Near a Grocery Store

These are basic recommendations in this everlasting search for that dream place of called stability and shelter.

Voter Impact

Posted on Updated on


Today, seven days until election day, the early voting process is more prevalant than ever. After, fighting voter suppression laws in Ohio, we still find ourselves having to remain diligent, in creating a process which allows individuals to exercise their right to vote on the candidates that are advocating for legislation which impact both the lives of their family and friends. Thus, in lue of the current weather conditions, for those voters who have chosen the traditional way of voting on election day, we often ask what is most important, VOTING or continuing methods that is comfortable. In fact, with the new Supreme Court decision to allow expanded hours at the Board of Elections it makes it possible to cast your vote early. This will allow time on election day to reach out and assist family members, and friends to the polls. The question remains is it time to begin a new tradition or method of voting. Still, there is time to early vote, in Cuyahoga County the hours has been extended to:

• 8:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m., Monday through Thursday, October 29, 2012 through November 1, 2012; and
• 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., Friday, November 2, 2012.
• 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., Saturday, November 3, 2012.
• 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m., Sunday, November 4, 2012.
• 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., Monday, November 5, 2012.

Please be sure to go to google.com, or barackobama.com to research the Voting hours in your county. We ALL have a responsibility to make a decision in this election process, negating your responsiblity leaves opportunity for others to make decisions choosing legislators that may not have you or your family’s best interest in mind. Thus, as one of many who participated in the SLEEP OUT THE VOTE, and spent the summer Community Organizing, to me the importance in this election is clear and just like many others who continue to fight today for a better tomorrow, we will wake up on November 7, 2012 knowing we did all we could do, but our work continues. Still, the good news is there is still an opportunity to Early VOTE IN PERSON, and the deadline to early vote by mail is November 2, 2012. So, will you join so many of your friends and neighbors, and become an early voter. We are thankful for all of those who has joined us in this process, with a collective voice lends opportunity to fight another day for a better tomorrow. It’s our choice we can be a part of the problem or a part of the solution, what’s your choice?

The Dream

Posted on Updated on


Monday, Dr. Martin Luther King’s Day, we think about the significance of this day. On this day as we, attend programs in the celebration of this day with our Community Leaders, our neighbors, families and friends, the most memorable speech of Dr. Martin Luther King is “I have a Dream”. In these ever changing times, his dream still resonates with us today, with the dreams of racial, social, economic, and religious equality, as we continue to strive for unity.

We commend our leaders for the struggles of the past and the triumphs of today. Through our advocacy, volunteering, and joining together for a various cause, the one common factor is basic human equality of a universal right to live a healthy life of peace and progress. Still as we prepare, for the State of the Union for the 44th President, Barack Obama moving forward with our 2012 Agenda next week, we ask ourselves, how far have we come and how far yet do we have to go and we say, while standing on truth and justice the conversations have begun to pave the road of forward moving agenda, as we continue to be a part of the solution. We must reflect of the progress our President has made and continues to strive to do.

Still, in recollection of the march in Washington DC for Jobs and Justice with Rev Al Sharpton and the National Action Network http://www.nationalactionnetwork.net to the Dr. Martin Luther King Memorial it was a surreal moment, with many community leaders such as talk show host Micheal Baisden, of 93.1 WZAK, Mark Morial President of the Urban League, The Secretary of the Department of Labor, Martin Luther King Jr. and the list continue. Such influential individuals come together for a cause that has plagued the community since slavery, as we continue to move forward addressing the plight of the African – American man, the family, education, jobs, economics, restoration in the American Society, and ridding abuse we seek to keep our voices heard. To continue to move forward towards equality and justice for all.

Therefore, this day as I sit quietly and ask myself, what would Rev Dr. Martin Luther King be doing today? Would he be holding conferences, doing interviews? What would his message be today? What would his next book be about? Then I start to Imagine, President Obama, First Lady Michelle Obama, Dr. Martin Luther King and Coretta Scott King all sitting having dinner, the Obama Family and the King Family sitting enjoying dinner together, while the children are playing, watching Civil Rights Movies discussing the history of the past, while listening to Motown, the children watching BET, tweeting to Roxy about their dream for their future. Then I remember, though these are different times, I ask have the hearts of America changed and a quote comes to mind,

“There are those who are asking the devotees of civil rights, “When will you be satisfied?” We can never be satisfied as long as the Negro is the victim of the unspeakable horrors of police brutality… No, no, we are not satisfied, and we will not be satisfied until “justice rolls down like waters, and righteousness like a mighty stream.”

Still, now, as we prepare for this road ahead, I have to thank god for giving us Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, for standing with love and against hate, President Obama for standing for unity and not division. The road we pave today will be the path that’s taken tomorrow, as we imagine the next generation of leaders, Spiritually Grounded, Educated, Family Oriented, Socially Conscious, Economically Sustainable, leading Healthy Lives, we imagine the paradise of lives that the past has long strived. We imagine “The Dream.”
