“Do it with love.”
In the phenomenal blues song – “Baby What You Want Me To Do?” – the great bluesman Jimmy Reed sings about how his lady has him doing whatever she needs him to. It’s classic blues, and there is a lot of truth in ” . . . you got me doin’ what you want me to do.” My Queen has me cooking and the practice has made me quite good at it, if I must say so myself. In fact, she talked me into my first celebrity cooking appearance just a few weeks ago. You can see the episode of “Beyond the Plate RVA” below. If you want this type of magic in your unions—be friends, share meals, enjoy each other’s talents, and pray together. It’s a simple formula to have your partner doing what you want them to do. What’s more, when you do it with love, they usually reciprocate.
This issue of SoulVision Magazine is about people who are lifting us with inclusive fresh stories in books, narratives, and equations of time. We feature New York Times bestselling author David L. Robbins. David shares his latest work and what it takes to write convincingly about war and peace. We also spend some time with Nic King, who is empowering youth through the Legacy Cereal Company – the first black-owned cereal company in the U.S, and Bruce Nahin who is still making waves as a film producer. We travel into the world of unique international timepieces with the phenomenal master of horology Pietro Tomajer, founder of The Limited Edition, and catch up with RichWine RVA’s creators Lance Lemon and Kristen Gardner Beal. Finally, we celebrate the genius of the late pioneering designer Jay Jaxon, share the latest from the Black Violin Foundation and showcase the culinary magic of chef Mike Lindsey.
