There was a line from Don Maclean’s song “American Pie” that always hit me strongly: “The day the music died.” For me, my music died for almost 30 years.

EVERYTHING HAS LED ME TO THIS PLACE

This “place” is where I am today is one where I am proud. I adore my children. And I’m amazed by the 50 songs I’ve composed and words I’ve written from my heart to share with the world. Continue reading

I WISH SOMEHOW I COULD FLY

Depression feels like a whirlpool that is hard to swim out of. I will not drown as long as I can breathe. It’s just very tiring. I once looked forward to speaking publicly and singing, but now it seems almost impossible. I want to “stay safe.” Continue reading

I HOLD ON

I hold on to memories of how I once felt adored in my life – cherished by my parents and even by my former husband. Even though it was my choice to divorce after a long marriage, I am still experiencing a lot of grief. Continue reading

SOMEWHERE I CAN’T SEE

When I sing my song, I am reminded of god’s love, because I have been blessed by inspirational music to help me. But most importantly, when I sing my song I am reminded that self-love is the answer. I won’t drown in misery! Continue reading

IT MIGHT HAVE BEEN-PART 1

I am able to share more background on “It Might Have Been.” The three verses speak to my relationship with Michael. The first verse was our romance.
