I Made Lemonade

Lemonade … An artistic poetic, visual collaboration pulling all of the senses to experience this road I’ve been on. I was actually submerged for over 10 years, going through that same mantra … until I was free, as I write, “the dam broke …”. Only to feel many of these again … There are parts that are questionable, yet true, yet powerful, yet in me. I couldn’t connect with all the songs or images but I could with all the […]

Don’t Give Up or Give In

I wish I could just tell every noncustodial parent to do all you can to stay connected to your children and be an example of the exemplary person you want them to be. Do whatever you can to stay connected by helping financially, emotionally, physically, and mentally. This little person has been given to you, not as a pawn but as protege of every facet of life. If you really love this young person, always do what is in THEIR […]

Singing The National Anthem at Graduation

I was asked to sing at ITT’s graduation ceremony this month. I was honored to be asked. I love doing the things I love, like singing. A couple of hours before, I was overcome with emotion as one of my best friends entered the security gates for a long trip. Thank you all my Blog fam, FB fam, ITT friends, and loving ones who in words and prayer held me up. We did it! Thank you my beautiful village, Good […]

Do The Right Thing

Today it’s simple … Always do the right thing with the right heart … A little bit ago someone tried to GET me. They tried to bring misfortune to my house. Instead of going back and forth, tit for tat, I decided that this was the fire to get my ducks in a row. So while I’m excited about moving beyond in a way that that situation couldn’t touch me, the Most High was doing His thing. Come to find […]

Let It Flow … Again

I have one journal that survived with a few poems I wrote in high school.  Last night my daughter began to read it and she exclaimed, “Mom, your writing is so deep!”. Life & situations over the years have hampered, suppressed, and even broken that flow.  Two years ago I opened the door and ended up penning 7 writings.  But now that isn’t an expression of me that overflows so freely.  It is a part of me but it hasn’t […]

No Place To Grow

In the last 4 years I have learned a lot about me.  New and hidden passions and talents have blossomed.  It’s not just I didn’t know my own strength but I didn’t even know what I liked or really needed (dealing with controlling people will do that).  After talking with a friend I realized that even musically the place we were, allowed us no room to grow.  My vocal ability was stronger then but we had no place to grow.  […]
