Cocoa Flower has moved…Kinda Sorta


I know I’ve been off the scene lately. Let me explain. After having major surgery earlier in the year and having to recuperate, I decided to make a few changes. First, I took some much needed time off from everything; working, blogging, even exercising. After that time though, I decided to make some major changes to my blog. The most significant being I changed my domain name from to and I switched from to Both were more headaches than I anticipated. Who knew there would be all of these ins and outs that would be involved with finding a host, losing subscribers, and possibly pointing (redirecting) my DNS; yadda, yadda, yadda (I think you get the point).

But anyway, after months of rest, recuperation, and reflection; I believe I’m rearin’ to go (just a little southern slang, although technically I’m not southern). Well, the new site is up, and I can honestly say that I think I love it. The only problem is, I miss my subscribers :-(. So, if you’ll still have me as a blog that you like to visit, come on over to and subscribe there. You can also follow me on Facebook, Twitter, or Bloglovin. Oh, before I forget, I’ve even got an Instagram now (it took me a while to get one, considering for I while I didn’t even know it existed or what it was). My goal is to continue writing the same kinds of posts as in the past with just a little more personality and style. So I hope to hear from you. And as always…

It’s Universal

After watching the Grammy’s  last night, I was on a natural high and truly inspired. I guess music does that to me. But it was wonderful to see the appreciation of musical diversity. Some say music is the universal language, and I agree. Like many of the artists last night, it’s great when we can see the fruits of our labor. So many musicians were able to experience such a gratifying moment. Even if they weren’t winners, just to be a nominee spoke volumes for the level of artistry that they have attained. It’s  great when your labor is one of love for your craft, and your natural God-given gift. In my yoga class yesterday, the message that we were left with was to do what we love, because loving what we do enriches our souls. Eventually we will see the fruits of your labor. So what is universal when it comes to pursuing our dreams?

2012 in review

The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

600 people reached the top of Mt. Everest in 2012. This blog got about 5,900 views in 2012. If every person who reached the top of Mt. Everest viewed this blog, it would have taken 10 years to get that many views.

What’s really scary…

me without much rest. It’s been a real crazy week with a lot of ups and downs. So before I become less of a treat, I’ll just say Happy Halloween. Hope you’ve enjoyed it.

2011 in review

The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2011 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 2,200 times in 2011. If it were a cable car, it would take about 37 trips to carry that many people.
