Has Peter Parker Been There The Whole Time?


Comic book reading was never my hobby; however, when I was a young girl in the 90’s, I would wake up early every Saturday morning to have breakfast with Mr. Stan Lee and his Marvel cartoon heros. I would begin with Spider-Man and finish with the X-Men. Back then, the cartoons had a geneological format and so I knew the background history of each and every character. For instance, I knew that Storm had a son, I knew that Mystic was the mother of Rogue and the Night Crawler, and I knew without a doubt that Peter Parker loved Mary Jane Watson with all of his heart, and even though I knew nothing about love, I knew that this bond between these two were special and when I grew-up, I wanted to have this bond with a man like Peter Parker too!

How excited I was to see these movies come to the big-screen! X-Men was ok…well I loved the second one…but Tobey McGuire did a magnificient and perfect job of introducing the world to the intelligent, socially ackward, family-oriented, oddly funny, devoted, respectable, understanding and patient Peter Parker; the man underneath the Spider-Man suit.

I’m sure by now that you have surmised that I have a secret obsession with Peter Parker and you are absoulutely correct! I am secretly in love with him, and I am patiently waiting for his Black twin to find me again because I think that I have met him before, but like Mary Jane, my personal issues clouded my judgement and my heart was too broken to recognize it’s match.

Ginger’s Thoughts – Hospital scene from SpiderMan when Peter Parker is in the hospital answering a question about SpiderMan to Mary Jane while his aunt May is lying in her hospital bed recuperating after the Green Goblin attack.

GingerGirl: Has he mentioned me?
Peter Parker: Yeah.
GingerGirl: What’d he say?
Peter Parker: Uh… I said… he asked me what I thought about you.
GingerGirl: And what did you say?
Peter Parker: I said… uh… Spider-Man, I said uh… The great thing about GB is… when you look in her eyes and she’s looking back in yours… everything… feels… not quite normal. Because you feel stronger and weaker at the same time. You feel excited and at the same time, terrified. The truth is… you don’t know what you feel except you know what kind of man you want to be. It’s as if you’ve reached the unreachable and you weren’t ready for it.”
GingerGirl: You said that?
Peter Parker: Well, something like that.

Now this sounds like a man who truly loves the entire being of a woman and I have faith that I will experience this love, this lifetime:)

Why Is It So Hard To Let Go?


Mary Mary, is a popular, R&B, Jazz, mixed with a little Hip Hop, gospel singing group. Erica and Tina are sisters and they named their group after two important women of Christian Bible history. Mary, Jesus mother, and Mary Magdalene, one of Jesus’s disciples. As a matter of fact, these sisters produced their first single entitled, Shackles in the year of 2000, and I can still remember the first time that I heard it on the radio.

I did not know what to do. I had never experienced Gospel music with that type of flavor, so I listened to the words and just sat still for awhile.

“Take the shackles of my feet so I can dance!”
“I just want to praise you, I just want to praise you!”
“You broke the chains so I can freely dance!”
“I just want to praise you, I just want to praise you!’

OMG! I learned the words and I began to feel, and understand the meaning of the words. The next time I would hear it, I began to dance freely, knowing that I was dancing for my God. These women had produced a ministry with their music and we began to follow them; along with, their music.

I guess that’s why I feel so sad after learning that the sister named Tina is currently experiencing a broken heart. Her husband cheated on her with a family friend for a period of two years, and I wish that I knew him because I would punch him in the face.

She has an article in Ebony Magazine upcoming issue and this is where she spills her heartbreak with the world. Today, she went on Facebook asking her fans to pray for her during this time, and of course we will Tina…you got that. She also says that they are going on a Spiritual fast, and that they will defeat the devil and claim their marriage.

Tina, the devil didn’t make him be a whore hunny. He could have walked away but he didn’t. Fasting will not end his sexual escapades. Sorry…The reality is that if he cheated with a call girl; it was just nasty lust, but a family friend….for two years…He is a liar, a con-artist, a snake, a disrespectful a@@hole! Ugh!!!!

You are in my prayers, and I wish that you go back and play your “Shackle” song. You can be free and dance the way that you taught me.

Ginger’s Thought – Bad Investments

I’m sure after reading the title, you surmised that I was venting about financial matters. After all, when most people hear or read about the word investment, the next word to follow is usually business. Companies make investments, talent scouts make investments, drug dealers make investments…. Well, you get my point! The results, Facebook: Cash Money Records: and well we all know one but let’s not say any names. (No snitch)

Tonight, I am contemplating the same investment principle; however, business is not the word to follow. My heart is. I am thinking about the time, the effort, and the sex that I have invested in past relationships and I am embarrassingly realizing that I have not received absolutely nothing in return. I am asking myself how I can be so smart; and yet, be so stupid.

Now I truly understand why God tells us to guard our hearts, because to be on guard means to be wise, to be cautious, to be mindful; to protect our investment.

A broken heart is like an emotional bankrupt! A troubled mind is like an empty ATM machine! What’s the point of looking like value when you have none?

Lesson learned, no more bad investments for me.
