I enjoy sharing women that are fascinating and make an impact on me, and Fatimah’ is one of them. I recently met her in a local coffee shop to “interview” her, asking some questions to find out more about her, in order to let our readers get to know her too. Enjoy!
What was the name of the first record you ever bought?
I remember it well…it was “Think”, by James Brown and The Famous Flames. This song made me dance, and I love dancing.
Who was your favorite female singer while growing up?
It was “Esther Phillips”. Esther’s voice is sultry & unique. Take a listen…
What is the one thing you have to put on that makes you feel good about leaving the house?
I have to say, it’s an essential oil called “Ylang Ylang” and I only use the one from the company, Young Living. It makes me feel empowered, seductive, creative, and magnetic.
What is your favorite comfort food?
It’s either Ben & Jerry’s or Haagen Daz’s Butter Pecan ice cream, or, this Greek Honey Vanilla yogurt that I get at the health food store.
What’s your favorite and least favorite thing about being over 50?
If there was anything that is my least favorite thing about being over 50, I guess it would be that I don’t have the physical strength and tenacity that I used to have: I don’t last like I used to! But my favorite things are I feel more conscious, more aware, and feel like I have wisdom.
What is your most favorite thing to do that is “creative”?
Dancing, singing, drumming, storytelling: I love them all!
Do you feel optimistic about the future? And, what keeps you going?
Oh yes. I do feel optimistic about the future! And what keeps me going are the possibilities. The unknown. The trusting. And the knowing.
What is part of your daily routine that makes you feel good?
I have a internet TV Station, “One Outrageous place on the Internet” “Shabazz 7777” WRNU Internet TV. I get such a good feeling and so much enjoyment while selecting the music or Informative Documentaries for each show, knowing that those good vibes are being passed along and shared; that is something that I love to do! Tune in from 7pm – 7am every day to feel it!
