YOUR SWEET SMILE

The feelings that inspired me to write my most recent song “Someone To Love You,” continue to reverberate throughout my life. The title of this post is from that song. I haven’t written anything of a personal nature in awhile, and will tread lightly here because I do want to share about my current life.

I’M SO THANKFUL

I believe that humor is a wonderful coping mechanism and I look for it, especially when I’m overwhelmed. Over the past few weeks even though I was faced with some intense challenges, there were many moments when I was heartily laughing out loud. Continue reading

PAINFUL WORDS

I performed “Misunderstood” last night at Kulak’s Woodshed. This was my first performance in seven months. I hadn’t felt like being in front of an audience due to my eye problems. But I did it! Continue reading

MISUNDERSTOOD-PART 1

My son has no idea that I wrote this song. What emerged from our conflict, were many feelings related to the divorce that had been suppressed. It seems like sharing here is the antithesis of being misunderstood. I feel understood now. Continue reading

NO ORDINARY PRINCESS – PART 1

Seeing myself as a Princess allowed me to write feelings I might not have been able to express in any other way. Unfortunately, there is a dark side to my Princess metaphor – the Dragon. Continue reading
