Hi, it's Kola.

Something I never thought I would be reporting to you.....

...is that I have a new boyfriend.

It's official, as I agreed today to be in a committed relationship with him.

I can't say too much yet about him, because I don't know what to say yet. I've been extremely depressed, as every since "Diary" came out--I feel as though my work is done and I have nothing left to say. I just feel like I want to be invisible now. Hopefully, these feelings will pass.




As I told Renata on the other board---I've been assigned to "Days of Our Lives" just as she was hoping and just as ABM predicted. So perhaps this will be the stay-at-home quiet work that I need. Writing white characters and getting a "breather" from the frustration I feel in fighting for black issues and the black world. I am very tired and I am looking and feeling too old for my age. I just don't feel inspired anymore, I don't feel that there is anywhere on earth where I belong or even want to set eyes on anymore--and there are many days when I just don't believe in or care about our people anymore.

It's very hard to explain, but I'm tired.

I will be giving a lecture at Cal Luthern University on April 26th at 6 pm in Thousand Oaks as planned.....and I have two big radio shows this weekend--both can be listened to online.


FRIDAY morning---April 7th

"In Our Voices with Nkenge Toure" 11-12 am eastern
on WPFW Radio in my hometown Washington, D.C.

At the top of this page, just click LISTEN ONLINE: http://www.wpfw.org/


SATURDAY AFTERNOON---April 8th

"The African Experience" (Noon-3 pm eastern)

*I pre-taped this interview and I don't know
WHEN during the show I will be on, but it's a 2 part interview that starts this Saturday.
WRFG-89.3 FM Atlanta

The FARAFINA magazine cover is coming up...and some other stuff. I will try to keep people posted. But if I don't, just email me: kolaboof@gmail.com




I pray that everyone here is doing well and that you are discovering what you want and what you must do with your lives. And I pray that I never let you down.

I have a LOT of work to do, and I'm praying to get the strength and inpsiration to get back on the horse. I am hoping that the stint on "Days of Our Lives" will be just the ESCAPE I needed.
