Good Evening, Heartache..

*sigh* Last night, I was in a horrible mood.  It hit me like a ton of bricks, and I realized that I finally needed to release some tears; tears that I've been holding back for a long time now! 

In my pursuit of unhappiness, I started watching various YouTube videos of Jill Scott performing "Hear My Call" (which started the tears btw) to her performing "Good Morning, Heartache."  Eventually, I  ran across Lady Day to assist in the flow of my tears. 

Today, I couldn't get the jazz legend out of my mind, so I figured I'd share a few of her dopest pics with you....

The Classic: Lady Sings the Blues

I had a Billie Holiday Greatest Hits album.... will definitely need to find that for more "rainy days"

If I had a pack of cigarettes last night, I probably would have lit a few of 'em.

And finally, a smirk.. looks like she buried the pain for the day to press forward.  :-)
This wasn't intended to be a discussion post, but I'd like to know, when you realize it's that time to cry, what do you do to get the tears flowing?  


  1. Simply, simply adore this lady!

  2. Yes, yes.. so do I.. however, I YouTube'd her and she was high.. not a good sound AT ALL!
