Too busy even in my dreams...

Lately, I have been dreaming every night. I can't really remember the details in the dream, but I just wake up knowing that I've been very busy in my dream. Normal people have dreams that are more like fantasies. Mine are more like a second life. A series of seemingly mundane tasks and interactions with people I know. The only stretch of the imagination is these daily interactions in my dreams are with people I haven't seen or talked to in months/years. Sometimes I'm so busy in my second life that I awake tired from all my dream work. I don't know what's cause the sudden surge of dreams.

I guess it's a relief from what I usually dream: being chased, falling, cheating...and well....let's just say "Trading Places". But do I really have to be working? Where is my fantasy? My departure from reality? Seems like every dream I have is linked to stress and anxiety. Maybe this means I need to do something. Get out. Travel. Trade some places. Take a vacation...Like I need my dreams to tell me something I already know...

Public Service Announcement

12:58 PM |

To all my Black business owners...

To all my Black business owners: handle business. While it may be OK for Uncle Earl and Big Mama to run the grill and the register, they can't do it all by themselves. Hire some people. Some people that aren't necessarily family members. You know, people you can fire when the mess up without having to feel awkward around the dinner table that night. I know you think if you keep it small you'll get more profits, but if people get annoyed with the lack of service, they won't be returning and you'll just lose more money.

O and to my Black apparel business owners. The clothing in your store should NOT smell like plastic, hemp, or black love incense. There are more fabrics than polyester and spandex. Leather doesn't squeak like a plastic chew toy. We know what a real Coach bag looks like, so stop it with the knock offs and bootlegs! Sigh...
