On land, the “eye”
of a hurricane is the calmest part of the storm
and is mostly clear of clouds, wind, and rain. Although the “eye of the storm”
is relatively calm, it is “The EyeWall”
that is the most devastating part of the hurricane, particularly the upper right hand quadrant due to the counterclockwise rotation of the wind.
It is easy for those in the eye of a storm to think that they will be safe. However, in actuality those who are in the eye of the storm should never let down their guard. Rather, they should continue to brace themselves for possible danger, destruction, and hardships.
Metaphorically, to be in the “eye of the storm” refers to being in the center of an especially difficult, stressful,or hectic situation.
At some point in our lives, many of us may find ourselves in the eye of a storm and also at a crossroad as to what to do. Fortunately, it is not only possible to survive, but also to thrive when you are in the eye of a storm, and it all starts with renewing your mind.
On Morning Energy, we are going to spend time further exploring this topic as it relates to so many different areas of our lives.
Join me, Renna Reddick Friday from 4 to 6 a.m. for a special musical journey about this topic! I am definitely looking forward to spending time with you on the airwaves and sharing your energy!!!
I found out about WMNF through an outreach table that was set up at Sweet Water Organic Farm during my first visit there in 2012.
I had never really heard much about community radio stations at that time and became extremely intrigue as to why a radio station would have an interest in attending and/or hosting events in the community.
As I began to learn more from the Volunteer Coordinator at that time, I decided that the station would be a great fit for me in light of my background in communications and my ongoing interest in helping others.
One of my first volunteer assignments at WMNF was community outreach. I thought what better way to reach out to the community than in the same manner that I felt WMNF had reached out to me. After about a year of doing out reach service, I decided to try my hands at voicing promos/drops since I still had a passion for the arts. I also began helping out during the marathons.
Consequently, while volunteering during one of the marathons, I was asked by a former host to consider being one of their co-host because he liked my personality and the sound of my voice. I had never done formal radio work before, although I DID have a communication degree, however, my interest while attending college at that time was more towards television than radio. Nonetheless, I agreed. In addition to being a co-host on that show (The Damn Jams )(Hip-Hop) , other shows that I have co-hosted on while volunteering at WMNF are: Thee Righteous Temple of Hip Hop (Christian Hip Hop), The Early Bird Wake Up Show (Country), Blues With A Groove (Blues ), Mellow Music Encounters ( R& B and Blues) and Kingston 12 (Reggae). However, In February 2014,
I was thankfully given the opportunity to host and produce my own show.... MORNING ENERGY..... and it has truly been an AMAZING experience and journey for which I will always be thankful for!!!
