“My sadness taught me to seek answers and dig deep for truth; and when I came up with nothing, it pushed me to take one step forward.” We have a choice in life. To take what comes and make it work for us or lay down and die. I have to admit there have... Continue Reading →
Comparing ourselves to others, even those we may admire tremendously, is the surest way to stifle or even lose our own power.✨ While others may be quite inspiring, their path is not ours; ours is not theirs. As such, comparisons can only hinder our progress with ourselves and our relationships with others.✨ The idea is... Continue Reading →
“If you’re going to be a solopreneur when you grow up and work for yourself, best to practice by playing in small spaces by yourself for long hours when you’re a kid!” Do we ever really grow up? I don't think so. Somewhere, deep inside, there is this child lingering and longing to climb... Continue Reading →
"I am a different and strange human being and need a lover who understands that and is willing and desirous to explore me." We can all say that about ourselves, yeah? Each of us so unique. And no matter how we all want to be the same, look the same, act, talk, be accepted as... Continue Reading →
"I have found through my work experience, that when I put my passion behind it, my efforts flourish." I have had many careers - music, corporate, entrepreneurship - ranging from the ministry (yep, I'm not jkg!), to music, insurance, art and photography, marketing and advertising, to owning my own companies.

When you need a connection, go to NYC. We live in micro-bubble lives. Work, home, our market, schools, where we shop and where we eat, is all a microcosm of this big world. It can be a bit stifling. Sometimes you need to break out and experience the rest of the world. You probably don't... Continue Reading →
You know, I sometimes think, how is anyone ever gonna come up with a book, or a painting, or a symphony, or a sculpture that can compete with a great city. You can’t. Because you look around and every street, every boulevard, is its own special art form and when you think that in the... Continue Reading →
Flags are waving, families are gathering, barbecue is wafting through the neighborhood, old people are out in their lawn chairs, fireworks are going off while orchestras are playing patriotic songs. It’s Memorial Day!
I am a mother. I have a mother. I have raised a mother. Mother’s are not to be overlooked, or taken for granted. Motherhood is a sacred role that should be celebrated (as it is) and revered, taught and honored. As a mother I celebrate myself I raised two incredible humans. Our path was unusual...

A beautiful reminder to stay in the now…. XOXOXO
I constantly catch my mind planning out my future. I might be thinking about where to have dinner (the very near future), dreaming of my next home (the few years away future), deciding on my next travel adventure (the hopefully this year future), or what type of shoes I want to buy next (the sometime this month future).
In my mind, I am living in the future. Creating my next steps along the way. My brain just constantly planning, scheming, dreaming and thinking about what lies ahead.

Ungrounded I love the feeling of taking off Kinda helpless you just let go of all control Feel the speed in your muscles and the roar of the engine in your head All that force gently tacks you to the back of your seat You simply have to submit to the gravity on your body... Continue Reading →
