It’s been busy and I have missed you, dear friends! Sometimes, being a working Mommy keeps the pace seemingly beyond my reach.  Many of you may know that I am working on transitioning out of my regular gig (their Social Media policy’s prohibit me from talking about them) and into my own singing, teaching, social media business.  I am truly grateful for the clients and students I have who believe in me and are so encouraging.

My new web page via Weebly is getting really close to it’s unveiling and I just can’t wait!  It’s a lot of work to do it yourself, but the satisfaction of learning and figuring things out are extremely rewarding.  I’m hoping for a March 1st announcement.

My vocal trio, Dangerous Curves just released our newest song,  “Someone To Watch Over Me” arranged by our fab friend, Trini Garza and recorded at E3 Studios.  You can buy it here!  Thursday we had a gig at the South Point, appearing on the Dennis Bono Show! We had the great privilege to share the stage with, Larry Gatlin – singer-songwriter of the Gatlin Brothers, Elisa Fiorillo-Dease – Fabulous Pop Singer Touring with Prince, Traci Kesisian – Beautiful Singer/Actress/Dancer from Broadway and Corrie Sachs – Star of Country Music Super Stars Show and of course, Dennis Bono, himself!

In a completely “keepin’ it real” moment (thanks Randy Jackson, for that phrase I use frequently in my life) I need to GTD faster!  I’m great at list making and using my iPad apps, but sometimes the follow through is lacking.  You know that feeling when you have so much to do, you actually feel immobile?  Or, I get up with great intentions, but the day-to-day business that must be done precludes you from doing what you ACTUALLY want to do? Ugh, frustrating!  Well, I just had a wonderful conversation with a neighbor and new friend and she recommended her life coach to me.  I think I am going to try that out.  I’ll let you know how that works out.

Lastly, I feel the need to comment on Whitney Houston and her FAR to early departure from Earth (although I’m sure the angels are singing with that heavenly voice).  I literally cried when I heard that she had died and then as the details came out, I got angry.  HOW did this happen?!?!  We are all painfully aware of her troubled times with drug and alcohol abuse. But, really, HOW did this happen? Lots of people who love her around, a superstar, lots of money and yet a tortured soul at the end, clearly. I can’t answer how it happened, but it reminded me of a truth that is difficult if not downright tough.  We all make our own choices.  We are responsible for our choices and therefore, the consequences.  Yikes, I kinda hate that.  I’ll be honest with you in a very personal way  (back to “keepin it real”!).  I struggle with my weight, so the fact of the matter is, I need to choose better food, more exercise, etc.  I want more money in my savings account, so I need to spend less, save more and continue to work hard.  Simple.  So do it. “Nuff said.

I am going to remember the Whitney Houston who’s voice inspired me and songs gave so much joy.   The girl who’s National Anthem is my clear standard.  And, a woman whose beauty was inside and out, may she rest in eternal peace…..

  1. AMEN to all of it…I am right there with you!

  2. Her national anthem is THE one by which to judge all others -and no one has come close. I love Kelly Clarkson, but she didn’t come close.

    You girls ROCK!

  3. […] and I have done so much already! Now, before you think I am TOTALLY amazing for getting up early to GTD, I actually had to get up early to warm up my voice for an on-air radio interview! Shut up, that is […]
