“Get it right the first time, so you don’t have to worry about it anymore.”
“When you let a fool make YOU act a fool, you are a bigger fool than the fool.”
“Don’t do anything you can’t live with the consequences of.”
Baba Old Man Sam returned from Orun (Heaven) to Aiye (Earth) on Wednesday, January 8, 1941. It was the second decan of Capricorn season, the half Taurus kind. In the Afrikan way of the stars, it was the season of The Baobab Tree. The day vibrated on a 6, and the moon was waxing in Taurus. Saturn and Venus were in congruence with mutable earth.
Baba Old Man Sam was Arkansas born, ol’ skool Detroit refined.
He who was my very first example of what a respectable man looked like.
He who was a man of many tools…to fix cars….to landscape the earth…to garden….to build homes..
to serve as deacon and sing.
He who sang with Rev. James Cleveland and the Mighty Clouds of Joy.
Who taught me level- headed consideration about everything.
Baba Old Man Sam seasoned 44 years before my return.
A man who was always teaching, but willing to learn.
A Natural Alpha Man with noting to prove, and lots to give.
He who drove many roads on intuition and MAPSCOS
Always lost to him in dominoes.
Baba Old Man Sam sprouted my green thumb with a turnip green patch.
On my grandmother’s land, next to double railroad tracks.
Sat us down and discussed history…to make sure we had the facts.
He who is the reason I am known for wise sayings.
He of the lineage of clergy, reverends, deacons, women praying.
Baba Old Man Sam’s Transition eclipsed my 16th solar return. It was the first decan of Leo season, and the moon was waxing in the same sign. In the Afrikan way of the stars, it was the season of The Judge. The day vibrated on an 11/2. Spiritual Mastery.
Baba Old Man Sam will always be to me…the koolest blaqman who ever lived.
There are not enough words to express my love, and my gratitude for the wisdom of this man.
And why not? My spirit only chose him to be my father..
222.9 The Mothership honors Baba Old Man Sam as a distinguished ancestor. The ultimate one. Ase!
