“Hold Onto Love, That Is What I Do, Now That I’ve Found You…*” (RIP Dolores O’Riordan)

Not a week ago a (beloved) creative soul and I were having a conversation about how music is, in a manner of speaking, a time machine. While the words I received in this conversation were likely much more eloquent, they reminded me of something I had written when Prince passed away, as a sort of […]

Listening to: Ed Sheeran “Save Myself” “…I gave you all my energy and I took away your pain, Cause human beings are destined to radiate or drain…So before I save someone else, I’ve got to save myself But if I don’t then I’ll go back to where I’m rescuing a stranger Just because they needed […]

“…A one woman riot…”

Listening to: Milck “Quiet” (Song preformed in flash mobs at, and now going viral as a result of, Women’s March in Washington DC, now become anthem for Women’s Rights and Human Rights, and for me, personally.) “…But no one knows me, no one ever will, If I don’t say something, If I just lie still.
