Day Eighteen: Solar Plexus Ackee and Saltfish

Talk about yellow food! It’s Sunday and Solar Plexus Week has moved into Heart Chakra Week…but Mr. Albert made Ackee and Saltfish.


For those that don’t know, Ackee and Saltfish is yellow, salty and soft. He serves it with slices of fried breadfruit. Yum! It’s like traveling to Jamaica without buying a ticket. Vacation food on a regular day. Perfect.

Solar Plexus Week has been a lot like that dish. Yummy and Delightful…with a little salt for flavor. I feel so empowered! To be honest, in the past, solar plexus week wasn’t always smooth. Mainly because I didn’t really understand my solar plexus.


This time, I jumped in with both hands in front of me and learned a lot in the process. I’m more Aretha than Amy Winehouse and I love it. RESPECT for me, my worth and my decisions. I can listen to the advice of others but be true to myself. It’s a powerful thing, self-worth.

So, like I said, it’s a beautiful and sunny day in South Florida. I’m about to head out, hit the gym and possibly make some art. Yesterday, I spent the day painting an old hubcap that I found on the side of the road. It became part of my solar plexus journey.
In the words of the beautiful, bodacious Ms. Nina Simone, “It’s a new dawn. It’s a new day…and I’m feeling good.”
