Having bought a few peaches yesterday and placing one of them on a small plate on a kitchen shelf almost parallel to my face and nose, this morning I opened my kitchen doors and a smile was added to the scent of my morning. Lovely.
As I spend a fair amount of time on my laptop, it is safe to say, there are moments where I have been too attached. As I practice detachment, from my computer and my phone, and yes even certain situations that do not serve me, I realize how quickly we can move on to newContinue reading “Out with the old in with the new…my new laptop”
I wrote a song after my London premiere of THE PASS. YOUR VOICE. I had the first line of the chorus and the title, and posted that line on Facebook. It was there almost a year. “Your voice is the loudest.” After London I was feeling so much, hard to explain. I had finally spokenContinue reading “YOUR VOICE by Denise Marsa”

It puts me off and it has become second nature. If it happened once in awhile, OK maybe it would have more impact, however the barrageContinue reading “Nice vs ridicule, mocking and violent video games.”
“You can thank your Lucky Stars…” I spoke and then stopped. Father Graeme finished – speaking in his slightly soft Irish accent, “That we’re not as smart as we’d like to think we are.” I gasped and smiled. Here I was for the first time ever meeting with a clergyman from the church (for aContinue reading “On the corner of Waverly Place or Things in Common”
SPARK: a feeling or quality that causes excitement: They kept running into each other and eventually realized there was a spark between them. The music is mediocre because there’s no spark, no thrill, no unpredictability.
I love all 3 and have been working over the past few months on a new song I wrote with a new young male artist Tobe Baer singing it. He and I and his brother in Germany are producing the track.
