A Summer Eternal

Blah-Blah-Blah-Blah Blog

Let not this day be bleak,

For no amount of shock and grief,

No deluge of tears can cease

Memories of a voice überspiritual and erotic,

Of a woman damned by hatas for resemblin’ a man

And scorned by others as bein’ too “exotic.”

As we mourn Donna’s passin’,

She’s singin’ at higher frequencies.

Our skin tingles whenever she bends an angel’s ear,

Waxin’ lyrical on faith, love, passion

And how pairin’ romance with dance

Caused lots of babies to “appear.”

Puff, Donna seemed to emerge from thin air,

Bronze Botticellian Venus rockin’ KISS hair

Way back when Eurogrooves had much to prove

Such as it could be sexy to synthesize her

Before makin’ her go pop!

Who can forget Donna’s Muse-chic,

Her beauteous mezzo-soprano

In which gospel informed the goddess

To sermonize to believers and the godless

In one language common to frenzied bodies.

Summer moaned and shrieked,

Summoned forth the dance freak

Who flexed and flaunted his/her physique

Adorned with feathered boa, sequined bodice

About G. D. Grace of California

After the release of his fifth self-published novel, “Ripped & Ready (season 3)” GD ramped up for a new endeavor in radio, and on September 2, 2010 his first #BlogTalkRadio show premiered. His first two guest were two literary colleagues from two different sides of the tracks — one a former prison inmate-hustler, single father, turned author — the other, an accredited teacher and single father first time author. The intense on-air climate of cultural differences on the show, at one point, became thick enough to slice with a butter knife, however, it was a very successful event. Despite the clash over marketing approaches both authors remained professional and the outcome was a highly entertaining and interesting show. The seasons that followed incorporated talent from all walks of creativity, so in addition to the authors, GD’s guest lineup included poets and recovering addicts, motivational speakers and entrepreneurs, filmmakers and professionals in sports training and health, and also established artists from highly successful television shows, as well as, NAACP & Grammy Winners. Many shows gave us an inside glimpse inside the lives of legends from Marvin Gaye, James Brown, Smokey Robinson, Ray Goodman & Brown, Bruce A. Hawes (extraordinary writer for the Sounds of Philadelphia), Gerald Alston of The Manhattans, The Delphonics, Howard Hewett, and Chris Jasper of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame recognized Isley Brothers. Legends of literary Stanley Bennett Clay and James Earl Hardy also brought their distinct creative prowess to the show, as did professionals from the Broadway stage. GD’s show eventually caught the attention of World Media and through this friendship many of the legends mentioned above were tapped to be guests on the show. His friend, and often times, mentor, Wayne Barros became an influential part of the legacy that he was creating one show at time. His friendship, love, and direction helped enforce an inner-confidence in GD which allowed him to stretch his producing skills so the show would have an entertaining variety for the live listener and archive listeners. Between the two audience variations the show has been listened to by over 40,000 people. It has been successful beyond GD’s wildest dreams, and as Season 6 approaches, the adrenalin within him increases. He begins assembling the guest list next month in April 2015, and…
