The 100 Most Powerful Women

I don't have much to add to this. I found it interesting. The world keeps on spinning and women across the globe are spinning right along with it. Great!

My first reason for going to check out this link was to make sure the most powerful woman in my sphere was there... Miss Oprah Winfrey coming in at a lovely number fourteen in rank. MAJOR, on all kinds of levels. Too many for me to get into right now. After Miss Winfrey invites me on her show and gives the audience a complimentary copy of the cutest children's book to come about in the new millenium, I will then get into "My life with, without Oprah" and the impact. I found a high school picture from my Junior year last week, flipped the photo, and on the back was....To Oprah Winfrey. My junior year..I was 15 years old. In my first oral communications course in college, after my presentation (I suffer from a serious phobia of public speaking) the professor compared me to Oprah. Little things are major boosts. Of course I was horrified at the thought of having to speak in public like Oprah does everyday, but it was beyond nice to have a black woman doing wonderful things in the media to be compared to, especially when film and media studies was my major. Truly. And here we are many, many years later and though I still suffer terribly from public speaking. I do rise for the occasion and with sweaty palms and a lightning fast heartbeat...I do what I have to do.

See how I start going on and on about Ofrah? Maybe I'll write a book and title it "My life with, without Oprah".

A picture really does speak a thousand words.

Condoleezza Rice,who was #1 for a spell got demoted to #2. I know it's not supposed to matter because she is a woman doing things and all, but good Lord, what is she and where is she from...poor 'ting. I'm afraid for her. She looks like she is in a constant state of "deer caught in headlights." She looks like a woman who signed on to do something she's not sure she should be doing but feels she's gone to far to turn or come back now. I hope she's inspiring some little girl who doesn't really know the specifics except this woman of "some" color is the Secretary of State. It's what I hope of our 66th Secretary of State....missing one 6 to hint at deals made.
I think she was inducted on January 26th....there's your other 6. Too many of those upside down 9's involved for me to put my raised eyebrow to rest. But I still maintain....God Bless Her!!!!

And that's all I have to say about that.
