My Dearest People of the Light…

Today is the anniversary of the release of my debut album Tongues and Tails. In preparing a commemorative post for today, I heard that Ralph Schuckett had passed away.

Ralph is the person who brought my music to you, literally. Ralph swiped my demo tape of however many songs that fit on a cassette, recorded and rerecorded over with my newest songs,

We Are Jesus – Unreleased Song Debut

Happy Easter, everyone. My friend Charles sent me pictures of The Cross being carried through Central Park on Good Friday. I am not “religious” in any trained way, my parents thankfully didn’t push the construct of religious belief on us kids growing up, yet, throughout my life, in my songs, dreams and paintings, appear powerful imagery from biblical stories and characters. I have tried to change the lyrics,

I had a realization when I was singing and playing Coat of Many Colors by Dolly Parton, and that was this; I have also made a coat of many colors for my children, out of the small pieces of many colored goodwill I have been given. I stitch together whatever opportunities come my way with such love and hope for their “good luck and happiness” as Dolly says it.

Dearest People of the Light…

Well, we’ve started the year off with a bang, and I hope you are healthy and feel safe. Luckily for me, I’ve been distracted from the news because I’m recording a new song, making a painting with Esther, and I’m thinking about the new show I have coming up! It’s in a real theatre! I will even have at least two musicians with me, I can hardly wait.

Dear friends, people of the light,

On this night of the snowy N’oreaster I am thinking of going into hibernation before the New Year, but not before I thank you so much for being with me, reaching out and teaching me that I am so far from being alone and unheard. Thank you for reading my blogs, coming to my shows, watching my videos, buying some merchandise, and interacting on my social media pages.

Dear People of the Light –

I hope you are all well and staying safe.

Holidays are about connections, sharing memories and stories, and taking time to “be” with people who matter to me.  Well, you matter to me, so I’m going to do one more live stream in 2020 from my living room. Let’s kick off the season of light and love, and sail away from the chaotic shores of this year.

Hello dear citizens of the light. Speaking one’s mind politically can incite hatred and most certainly will illicit criticism. There is no room for misunderstanding or exploration. Thank goodness, at this time, one only has to listen, learn and choose a candidate that represents one’s hopes on most of the issues that threaten one’s way of life and love.

When I listen to my neighbor, Mary, who survived two years in the Japanese occupied jungles of Mindanao during World War II,

Hello dear friends,

As the number of manatees grows within our oceans, I hope your inner life swells with the wealth of your soul. These are turbulent and challenging times, but as I sing in my new song, ‘Love Yourself’: “So much good is born of so much strife.” I’ll be performing that unreleased nugget from my living room September 12, and you can join me!

It’s true, you all responded so positively to my last sold-out livestream concert in May,

Hello friends…

I hope you are all well and doing okay during these unprecedented times. As we all get accustomed to this new normal, I wanted to let you know I’m still working and creating.
