Keep Writing...

I was told by a friend that there is a sure way to immortalize yourself.
Needless to say, it is by the life you live. The impression you leave behind will live on in the hearts of those closest to you. At first, I wondered and worried that upon my death, my character would be long forgotten. My children will never know the stuggle, the tears, the joy, the blessings, nothing about me. There will be no one to take my place. I want my children to know me-- all that I am; my desires, my dreams, so that maybe one day, I can inspire them to make accomplishments decisions to better themselves and help them help each other. I want them to know, that I love them, even in my absense, and will watch over them and ask the almighty to give them what I lacked, unity, as a family. I want them to know that death is for certain, but life on earth is what you make it. Live life, Love-- Preservere.. How could I instill this in my children in my absense? Then he pointed at the stacks of folders and notebooks across the room.... "Keep Writing...

Kandayia Ali (Kanday Reign)

WELCOME TO KANDAY'S WORLD...Public Relations Specialist, Entertainment Marketing/Management, Event Planner- Coordinator- Promoter, Poet/Writer, Abstract/Surreal Artist, Photographer, Singer, Volunteer, Mom, Community Activist & Life Coach are just some of the titles she's recognized for holding. There will be many more to follow as her journey in life is still in its beginning stage.Kanday's (Also known as, Kathlean Brown) drive and determination to make an impact is a self-motivated reflex. "I don't need anyone to ask me to do anything- all that is needed is for me to open up my eyes and SEE that ultimately a solution has to be created and implemented. That's where I come in!"Kanday currently volunteers her time, services and finances through Jagud Eye Studioz (Business, Career and Entertainment Consulting), The DOA Organization (The Doshas Of Ayurveda NPO), Advanced Alternatives and The 38Hot Empire where she donates food, business services and life/health/career management assistance to those in need. She also stands in affiliation of other non-profit organizations throughout the world and gives her time, energy and talents where it is needed most. "Uplifting others only leaves room for you too to be uplifted."HER ART FORM: There has been many words used to try to describe me and my style of art, music and literature, and honestly there aren’t any available that will give you a true idea of who I am and why I create the art that I create. I consider myself “uniquely undefined” with an “afro-cen-clectic” way of expressing myself….I live, laugh and love through my naturally sensual nature and I’m very open and a lover of all things created (knowing that its a part of a universal circle that is also a part of me). I love the mental, visual and verbal pleasures in life; The physical pleasures I seek are a result of these needs being met.HER POETRY: The literature I compose fall into several different genres, ranging from sublime political to pure erotica. I love playing with words and idea concepts.Sharing my thoughts through articles, short stories, essays, poetry and reviews is how I release my energy to the world. Some people may like my opinions and are free to share their thoughts- and I extend that same warm invite to those who oppose my choices and opinions to share their thoughts as well.HER ART & DESIGNS: I’m an “artistic voyeur” with an aggressively creative eye for photography surreal, abstract and erotic art. I love the sensuality, design, curves and details of the human anatomy.Those willing to expose their sexuality freely to the world intrigue my senses and inspire me to create my work(s). Art is given new meaning when created from an erotic standpoint.My art form speaks from deep inside me. It has allowed me to be reborn into a new being- who’s life is solely to create and enhance the beauty in all things we have forgotten.RECENT ACHIEVEMENTS: In Feb. 2010, Kanday was chosen to win and wear the title as one of the many Black Women Making History. "This is truly an honor and it gives me more inspiration and energy to push forward to continue to make a difference in the world around me."IN CONCLUSION: My journey and those around me that I come into contact with will surely see that I ‘m a supportive, straight forward and not easily knocked off focus. I’m definitely someone that is rare- and I offer to open up the books and share myself with you. Let my eyes show you the beauty I see…. You be the judge.This is only the beginning- Kanday is in this for the long-run and she plans on being there to stand tall till the end... more…
