“Black and white photography erases time from the equation.”

We may be waiting for a racial time bomb to explode with this disease.
In the early days of the virus, the relatively few cases on the African continent, I believe, gave black people in America a false sense of security, that black people may be somehow less susceptible to it.
But that is not true, and African-Americans should not look to Africa as the model. Even as researchers worry about Africans’ vulnerabilities — some being the same issues that exist in the American South — African countries also have advantages that America and, in particular, African-Americans don’t. As Berkeley economist Edward Miguel explained, “The median age in a lot of countries is 20 or 18, much younger than in Europe, and it appears that young people who are infected are often asymptomatic or just get a cold.” The median age in the United States is 38. Furthermore, some African nations have a medical infrastructure experienced in dealing with pandemics, and in many cases people still live in rural areas.
But what is most worrisome is the racial disparity in prior health conditions that exist in the United States. As Bloomberg reported about a study of the deaths in Italy: “Almost half of the victims suffered from at least three prior illnesses, and about a fourth had either one or two previous conditions. More than 75 percent had high blood pressure, about 35 percent had diabetes and a third suffered from heart disease.” According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, high blood pressure is most common in non-Hispanic black adults (54 percent), and black people have the highest death rate from heart disease.
As for diabetes, the 2015 National Medical Association Scientific Assembly, held in Detroit, where my friend died, delivered these stark statistics: “African-American patients are more likely than white patients to have diabetes. The risk of diabetes is 77 percent higher among African-Americans than among non-Hispanic white Americans. The rates of diagnosis of diabetes in non-Hispanic African-Americans is 18.7 percent compared to 7.1 percent.

Hoje acordei um pouco mais angustiada do que de costume. Estou colocando em ordem alguns vídeos e fotos da minha última viagem, e me bateu uma tristeza tão forte. Não sei explicar. Reclamamos de tantas coisas banais. De não termos dinheiro suficiente para coisas supérfluas, das quais sequer precisamos de verdade. Para mim, viajar é me sentir viva, ser livre e esquecer dos problemas. Neste momento, não sei quando poderei me sentir viva, livre e os problemas então... prefiro fingir demência.
Fé. Eu fico repetindo pra mim mesmo: tenha FÉ.
Enquanto isso, tento reviver bons momentos como este. Subir ladeiras nunca foi tão divertido quanto em São Francisco. Subia rindo, feliz e saltitante. Depois de Ny, SF foi o lugar aonde passei mais frio na vida, e olha que era alto VERÃO na costa Oeste. Lembro que logo no primeiro dia, minha sinusite quis me derrubar na primeira rajada de vento gelado que tomei na cara. Nada que um cachecol não tenha resolvido. 🧣 🥶 💨
Já prometi que se tudo isso passar logo, vou subir Lombard Street correndo 🏃🏼♀️ 🤪 Gente, promessa é dívida. Me cobrem!!! #VoltaTempo#SanFran#ifyouregoingtosanfrancisco#lombardstreet
✨📱📲✨ BABES... I think it’s time for some virtual photoshoots YUP; FaceTime Feel Good photoshoots and wipe away those quarantine blues!!
I shed a few tears at the thought of all my creative/small biz friends that are in the same boat as I am. For my clients who are getting married now things our postponed.
The last few weeks have been a roller coaster, full-on medusa! My family routine out the freaking window, questions from my kiddo on why he can't hug grandma or go to school, my husband, who worries because he's essential he could get us sick and me playing teacher (I'm not cut out to be a teacher LOL). It's all a little bit of a tornado, and I know others are going through the same damn thing.
Ladies, it's pretty simple as placing your phone right on a dresser or coffee table and letting me direct on posing.
Who wants to try this fun project?! Who needs a reason to get all cutesy and stroll around in lingerie!? And don't worry I'll help you pull outfits from your closet if you don't have lingerie😉😉⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

I know we've talked about this before, but I can't stress enough that objects can really play up your sexy poses. Poles, curtains, mirrors, chairs, whatever it is; use it to your advantage!⠀

my favorite quarantine activities include: eating in bed, reading pretty things, and not NOT wearing a sweatshirt everyday 💆♀️
Dubs! Dubs! Dubs!
We miss the NBA season just like the rest of you but as you watch old highlights from home, enjoy them a little more with a cold Dubs Golden Ale. Take the W home with you.
You can find this delicious beer in the local #SF marketplace and you can grab it To-Go at our Haight St. location.
From a warm day in the city that I hold close to my soul.
