What keeps you going?

What keeps you going? When there is a pile of easier jobs than being an artist, what keeps you going? For me as a vocalist, it isn’t the ‘likes’ that count, it’s when people say my words/vocals made them feel. It’s like having a stone tumbler in my head where all the jagged edges get…

“You are not only a child of the universe, but also a creator”

I chose to share this wise musing that I was told recently: “Within you lies all of the answers. Your biological parents played the role they were meant to in terms of their spiritual contract with you. They were the channels for your birth into this world. You did not come from them, but through…

April 27 – A good day

I gave up a second interview for flight attendant and chose to do a more corporate-based contract job in audio-visual. I took the chance. The one contract proposal I wrote landed me another.
