Starting Your Dreams Later In Life and Embracing the Detour

I know it's been a while since I've posted anything but that's because of my job. I'm working as a reporter covering Oakland and I host an arts segment on the radio where I get to interview amazing artists from around the Bay Area. Plus I'm publicizing my book and building my speaking career! 
You know what's funny? I thought this would all happen by the time I was 27-30.  Nope. That wasn't God's plan for me. I'm finally beginning to do the things I've wanted to do and I'm almost 40 years old. Some people reading this who are 40 will say 40 is still young. But some younger people reading may think 40 is nearly ancient. But I'm writing this post for those who like me, thought their career and personal dreams would come true much early in life.

Watch Babs Tonight on CBS















I told you Cocoa Fly covers everything from hip hop to the one, the only, the divine super divalicious......Barbara Streisand. Normally I don't blog on Saturdays but I want to remind people that CBS is airing one of Bab's concerts from 2007. Streisand: Live In Concert airs tonight at 8pm. Sorry to folks on the East Coast for posting this late. But you can see clips from the concert here . Maybe CBS will put the concert On Demand. I will be watching this before hitting the party scene tonight.

My mom always tells me she loves Babs for her music and because she wouldn't get a nose job when Hollywood execs pressured her to go under the knife. I respect a woman comfortable in her own skin. And can you believe Babs celebrated her 67th birthday yesterday? You lookin' good girl.

I must get back to my sunny Saturday. Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
