Back In 24hrs

Turning off the BB phone
Unpluging the MacBook I own
Effective immediately
Success will need to standstill
Delete any urge for me to t.h.i.n.k.
An order from my Dr. Good Sleep
You know ;)

Bottom In De Road

Note to self, rabbit foot to never sell
It ain't a little brag, it ain't hard to tell
Lucky to score promotions very well
Certify rules card, certify ticket sales
Certification earn over 5 months spell
Back in class with a laptop from Dell
What I really need is a gift in the mail
Call me Sleepless, call me crazy like Mel
I need a week vacation, can't you tell
Been working four weeks daily like hell
Eye lid fighting to hear the finish bell
Anything to flee the 9 to 7 working jail
I wish it was Monday, yesterday
I wish it was Tuesday, today
Wish it was another day, in holiday
Can't wait for Carnival to fly away
But, Tuesday is the night, shorty
Believe it or not, hold on tight baby
A black man is feeling to party party
In a dance, looking to boogie woogie
Woman, hold on to your man steadily
Ready or not, here comes Sr. Jimmy
Winning & jamming, flag waving
Steal pan rhythm is in my soul
For once, I'm ready to loose control ;)

On Your Mark, Get Set...

I surely miss Mr. Vandross. He would hold your breath in awh with his effortless angelic voice while singing: "The sun is shining, there's plenty of light. A new day is dawning, sunny and bright..."

As for me, this morning sunlight is sunny-delight filled with a strange aroma lingering through the air. Can you smell it too? I swear I could smell coffee brewing, as if I was back in my native land. Could it be that I am still sleeping with much work lining up ahead? Wake up world! Need to wake up, clean up, eat breakfast and bless another day of accomplishments from tasks listed on our ever ending "To do list".

Fist thing first, I can't be motivated and you are not. It's a brotherly/sisterly love thing. Great, you feel me! It's a "Together" thing! Then, we will both recite this inspiring poem to start our day:

"If you think you're beaten, you are,
If you think you dare not, you don't.
If you'd like to win, but think you can't,
It's almost for sure you won't.

If you think you're losing, you've lost.
For out in the world we find -
Success begins with a person's will,
It's all in the state of mind.

If you think you're outclassed, you are,
You've got to think high to rise.
You've got to be sure of yourself before
You can ever win a prize.

Life's battles don't always go,
To the stronger or faster man,
But soon or late the man who wins
Is the man WHO THINKS HE CAN!"

PS: Now, go get them Tiger, I am right behind you. Need five more minutes of sleep ;)

Dare To Live Your Dreams

"What the mind of man can conceive and believe, it can achieve"

-- Napoleon Hill

With courage gently folded in my back pocket, a smile curled on my lips and excitements running through the veins of my legs, I found my way to a meeting located downtown this afternoon. I must say: "It feels good to dream and conceive ideas in my head". That same feeling is even greater when I see myself extending my comfort level and daring myself to try something new. Instead of being overcome by inner fear, today, I chose to thrive to new heights like the Casey Kasem's signature sign-off would say: "Keep your feet on the ground and keep reaching for the stars."

If you can, picture in your mind a parent seeing their new born taking five consecutive steps without falling for the first time. Picture a scientist finally discovering the cure for AIDS. Picture yourself finding and embracing your true love. Or picture an Olympian, against all odds, winning a goal medal while breaking the world record after ten years of practicing the same routine. Now in your mind, try to picture Louis Mercier. Picture me applying actions to having my own television show. No words can actually express how I felt today even if the new journey will be very long from concept to the screen. However, all I can say signing off: "One more step forward and "*&^%$#@! ;) Fear!"

"The path to success, in whatever form you wish to create it, requires a blend of faith, commitment, discipline, and consistency which help you to thrive to new heights."

-- Natasha Dern - Thoughts on thriving.

Happy Optimistic Day

Happy Thanks Giving to you and yours!

I am forever grateful and giving thanks to all my family, friends and fans.
Your caring smile and kind heart have kept me moving forward.

Giving thanks to my guarding angles on earth and in heaven. Yesterday is gone,
and by my side you are all, still, guiding my steps for a brighter tomorrow.

Giving thanks to each lover that crossed my path. Nothing compares to you!
The emotion of love kept me young, laughing, energized, reaching cloud nine in total happiness with each tender touch. Not to exclude the heart break, it kept me re-learning about myself, woman, relationships and being artistically driven while working through the pain.

Giving thanks to each pet that felt my lips with a warm kiss. Sorry for my saliva, missing you all.

Giving thanks and apologizing to this body of mine.
To the limit I've pushed you, and 'till this day you've helped me reach dreams, dead lines and life goals. May you rest in eternal peace when the time comes.

Giving thanks to this old heart of mine. What more can I say, you are and still remain a true friend. Keep strong and keep ticking!

Giving thanks to artist of all genres, especially to filmmakers, musicians and writers. Your arts made me the relentless person that I am today with numerous pictures, music or words that spoke to me and said:

"No matter how hard reality seems
Just hold on to your dreams

Don't give up and don't give in
Although it seems you never win
You will always pass the test
As long as you keep your head to the sky

If things around you crumble
No, you don't have to stumble and fall
Keep pushing on and don't you look back

I know the storms and strive
Cloud up your outlook on life
Just think ahead and you'll be inspired
To reach higher and higher.

You'll always do your best
If you learn to never say never
You maybe down, but you're not out.

Don't give up and don't give in
Although it seems you never win
You will always pass the test
As long as you keep your head to the sky
You can win as long as you keep your head to the sky (you can win child!)
You can win as long as you keep your head to the sky
Be optimistic"

Giving thanks for those who made the ultimate sacrifice with their lives in wars and protest march for man's stupidities. Because of your courage, vision and death, I sit here being free.

Last, but never forgotten... I give thanks to the factory worker that was sound asleep at the condom factory line. To you I am always grateful for giving me life.
When my father was intimate with my mother, he used the condom brand that had the hole that you forgot to check ;)

Toronto City - Part 1

By the hedge of Toronto, Ontario city

Where we sat down with friends and family

There I went to receive and share freely

Giving extol to a colorful journey

When hurdle, fear and bureaucracy

Held me down in captivity

Required of me faith and ruse to see victory

Now how shall I retain my stride

Entering a strange future century

Let the dreams of our youth

And the rhythms of our heart

Be the pillar in this flight

Forevermore starting tonight

By the hedge of this city

Where we sat down in glory

There we sanctify unity

-- Louis Mercier
