Recovering at home from her recent surgery, Aretha Franklin says she’s up and about – and feeling better, too.
“I feel great,” she tells
JET in a new interview, adding that doctors want her to recuperate for eight weeks. “The doctors say I can do whatever I feel like I am up to do. Of course, that doesn’t mean any concerts or anything like that. But I can do things around the house, and today I am just piddling around the house.”
The singer, 68, still has not revealed the nature of her ailment, though she’s been reported to have
pancreatic cancer. She promises the magazine that she will speak out on what’s ailing her soon. “I am putting Aretha together first,” she adds. “I will talk more later.”

“I might not remember everyone’s name right this moment,” she says, “but, please, I want them to know I appreciate


While recovering, Franklin says she’s received support from Stevie Wonder, Oprah Winfrey, Rev. Jesse Jackson, their prayers.” Add to those the prayers of her family, too, including family friend Willie Wilkerson, her sons, her niece Sabrina and her cousin Brenda.
“My family has been with me every step of the way,” she says. “I couldn’t have done it without them, that’s for sure.”
Since returning home from the hospital, the soul legend reveals that she’s been reading, catching up on faxes and relaxing. “I also might make one or two business calls,” she says. “Not too much, just a teeny bit God has given me the greatest gift already for the holidays. I am so grateful.”

We are in a new era. Those facts give us evidence we can reach the Melanin Tipping Point just by telling the truth. The Melanin Tipping Point is the point at which we go from healing to healed. Mchakato wa Uponyaji is the process of healing. Melanin Is Worth More Than Gold. That fact puts us in a different state mentally. It affects different people differently. What is certain is the Ubuntu paradigm is returning.
Melanin is worth more than gold. The Red, Black and Green is 100 years old. The Afric, official currency of the United States of Africa is worth over $2.

Hello Moon Child, it's been a few years since we talked. Please let me know if you can do my chart for me, thank you. I'm in transition and really could help with some interpretations.
Change the world for the better, take care of it, because you live in it!
