A Kiss from Rose| March 17th

When you are alone and thinking this is is the time when you are the most honest. What are you thinking of? Look at the woman in the picture and how she is sitting. How many times have you sat in this position, overwhelmed, with tears in your eyes with not one answer in your mind? This position usually comes when the calls to friends are redundant and even tired of them. Seated with your head between your legs is the position when you have heard all your mom and dad had to say. When your "big" auntie doesn't get the call at all, this is the position that sometimes gets ignored by the people in your home, and they still barge in the room needing something; and you say give me a minute. This position is the time when you are usually asking yourself, " What am I doing?" Yet, telling yourself something has to give. You see, most people would never talk about this position, but I will. I have been there, hoping no one would knock on the door. Yet, hoping I'm still. I have been in this position, which qualifies me to know that checking on others is necessary. It qualifies me to know that dropping off some cupcakes every now and then may be needed. It qualifies me to know that sometimes taking your friends out to eat maybe a great thing to do. I have sat in this position. It qualifies me to send out messages to let others know this position exists; nevertheless, everything will be ok. This picture shows the position of deep thoughts.


Isaiah 55:8

“For my thoughts are not your thoughts,

neither are your ways my ways,”

declares the Lord.

Matthews 6:25

Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes?

1 Corinthians 2:11

For who knows a person’s thoughts except their own spirit within them? In the same way no one knows the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God.

Francesca Martinez

Critically-acclaimed stand-up comedian Francesca Martinez first became prominent playing Rachel Burns in Grange Hill (1994-8). Since, she has starred in BBC shows Holby City, Doctors and Extras.

But it’s not her acting that she’s most well known for, it’s her comedy. With a self-deprecating sense of humor, Francesca, who has cerebral palsy, describes herself as “wobbly”. In 2000 she became the first female to win the prestigious Daily Telegraph Open Mic Award at the Edinburgh Festival. She was also named one of the 50 funniest acts in British comedy by The Observer.
