    I haven't been on the East Coast for a few years and I realized that I really missed it when I saw all that natural hair in DC! I had occasion to go back to Howard University for my graduation on Saturday. I was on my P's and Q's so I didn't have my camera at the ready.

    But the hair! I saw twists, fros, twist outs, locks that refused to fit under graduation caps. All kinds of folks with great natural hair. Bachelors, Masters and PHDs (btw, HU graduated 93 PHDs this year - more than any other year before). I wanted to tell them all that I loved their hair but I didn't want to seem like a dork.

    So if you were that beautiful girl with the lush fro walking up the hill, or maybe the one with the long twists waiting for the shuttle. Or maybe the brother walking across the stage with the locks fighting to get out of the cap. I just wanted to touch your twist outs. They were so cool. I wanted to ask you how you did it. I want you to be my mentor. But alas, I was a wuss.

    But I will just take this opportunity to say I like your hair. It was slamming!
