I am...a creative being. My interests in the performing arts were there before I knew my own name. I was born into a family of talented people. I had instructors in singing, dancing, acting, writing, directing and business, very early in my life. Doing what I have learned to do is as natural as breathing. I am blessed. I know it. Not to be a braggert. Arrogant or self indulged. It took me years to even admit this to myself. I remain grateful, thankful. And appreciative to those who keep me grounded.

So many blinded and found...
Doing their best to rewind,

A past had to have lived,
With a wish to dismiss...
Reality and the truth of...

Once Over

Once an over has come to be done.
Known to anyone wanting,
It to stay that way as is.
Why is the wishing,
What has been hoping to end...
Over and over again.
Than ever before.
To think it not that bad.
When reminiscing it,
As if...

Happiness Had To Have It

Peace of mind earned to receive,
Takes living to forgive.

Seeking obstacles and negativity,
As a normal way to live.
Will never leave one's belief,
They have created their own...
