IN THE PAST-PART 1

At the end of my story, I share some scrawled lyrics in progress. They are brutally honest and very personal. It is because of writing those words that I found the insight I needed for my newest song. Continue reading

I AM HUMAN

I grew up to become a good girl. It’s hard to maintain that. I’d rather use the phrase of “being human.” That gives me permission to feel upset and to make mistakes. Being human helps me to understand my reactions when I am under tremendous pressure. Continue reading

I STILL REMEMBER – PART 2

I’ve been an artist all of my life. And working with music involves much of the same abilities I’ve used as a professional illustrator for the last thirty years.

THERE WAS NOTHING LEFT

I wish I could have inspired people by having persevered in my marriage through so much adversity, but it’s just not possible for me to do that. This might sound like a woman in her 50’s who simply “found herself” and is off gallivanting. But it’s not.

THE WONDERFUL METAPHORS – PART 3

I often love to write about metaphors; my song lyrics and stories are filled with them. Therefore, it is no coincidence that I see beautiful metaphors that relate what I’m learning about singing to improving my life. Continue reading
