Desert Island; Tulsa

Although I doubt I’ll be in a hurry to return to Tulsa, I actually liked it. As a black woman, in the back of my mind, I’m always concerned about racism, and leaving that city alive but I just go with my gut instinct and everything usually turns out peachy. Tulsa was practically deserted, especially for a Monday, hardly any museums were opened, the temp tipped just above 93, and restaurants were virtually nonexistent!

However Religious buildings were abundant, as well as the city’s homeless population. I do wonder if Tulsa has an initiative to bring tourism to the city, because it does have potential, it gives me small town in a big city vibe. Driving in the Uber I did run into an area with life, such as shops, restaurants and dives. My curiosity is a bit peaked, I just may have to return.

FYI The Street art I did found, was of quality!

Take Flight

A little over seven weeks ago, I became a flight attendant. Most days I can’t believe it, and the other days when I can believe it, I really don’t. I really wake up wondering if I’m actually stuck in an episode of Twilight Zone! (Remember that show?) I tucked becoming a flight attendant in the depths of my mind, because I was so comfortable being a Gate Agent with Delta that I didn’t consider really applying for the position. I’ve always said why would I want to be ‘stuck’ on a plane with passengers especially when they would behave so poorly when on the ground.

I can’t remember applying, Obviously I did but I have no recollection of doing so. What I do remember, my niece Essence pushing me to apply. I even turned my airline down three times, but now we’re here and I couldn’t be more happy!

When something is meant for you, the universe will conspire to make it happen.
