Welcome, or welcome back to the online home of blog posts, commentary, original content, and other such information created by Luccia Jalila Malika Rogers. This site is dedicated to opinion, fact-based-facts and discussion of them, speculation, humor, thought, and supporting the activities of Rev. Dr. Rogers in her areas of specialization and passion: Spirituality, Coffee, and Social and Cultural Anthropology.
Part of my process has led me to greatly cut back on involvement in social media, especially Facebook. The design of social media sites is based upon manipulation of the human, “crave/reward,” cycle. Each click, share, like, etc., triggers a tiny endorphin release, making the use of social media an addictive experience. It is subtle, but powerful, and not desirable for this person, who has spent 26 years striving to overcome drug and alcohol addiction, and her own addictive personality.
So, articles, blog posts, and course material will be created and shared here, and shared on Facebook and LinkedIn as one has an established presence on those sites. But, they will be shared without Comments. Discussion can take place here, articles may be shared, but my participation will be limited to activity on this site.
Subjects planned for upcoming articles include:
Coffee roasting techniques and the effects on aroma and flavor
Coffee brewing techniques and the effects on aroma and flavor
Deepening understanding of the ongoing ending of patriarchy
“Meditate on the subway,” aka, mediation anytime, anywhere
And so forth.
Thank you for reading. Thank you for your support and encouragement.
Blessings and Love,
