What is Genius is Common?

263f6dfa84-Genius is Common Only AgainNew

This is a call of empowerment. Today be inspired, be empowered and do the same for others. Proudly, wear your declaration of humankind’s divine manifestation. Share Your Genius on the page…

 “Genius is Common” means that all beings have a genius in them.

Genius manifests itself through each being’s own unique way of expressing their passion, be it their profession, their art, their talent.

An example can be a woman from the inner city who knows how to micro braid hair like Picasso painted; her skill, her talent is her genius.

Positioned to become a part of the American lexicon, like Nike’s “Just Do It” and Sprite’s “Obey your thirst,” “Genius is Common,” in just a few words, empowers by leveling the playing field of who and what is traditionally thought to be a genius.

Single Husbands the Stage Play by Mary Honey B. Morrison

 

The weekend of November 6-9, 2014 New York Times Best Selling Author Mary Honey B. Morrison, debuted Single Husbands as a stage play to the Atlanta area. I had the opportunity to sit in the audience and witness the pages of her book come to life as the characters she created sashayed across the stage. The story line was thought provocative, true to life, and entertaining. I am very proud of my friend and I advise any of you to get your copy via DVD or check it out for yourself at a theater near you.
