Sun Stays Up Longer

It was 5:48 PM EST NYC when I first noticed the twilight of the day lingering on. It made me smile; and I felt warm knowing Mother Nature is telling time again. And it’s wonderful to know…and of course we help her with tuning our clocks backwards and forwards. I did some research… Daylight SavingContinue reading “Sun Stays Up Longer”

Herbes De Provence & a way with seasoning

I love cooking. There was one special person in my life a long time ago that actually said to me while he was enjoying the dinner I had made, “You have a way with seasoning.” The way he said it it was as if I was seducing the salt, pepper, rosemary, tarragon, and whatever IContinue reading “Herbes De Provence & a way with seasoning”

Writing Producing Recording Strangers No More

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. The song is being recorded in my apartment in the West Village, NYC, Tobe’sContinue reading “Writing Producing Recording Strangers No More”

FLIRTING WITH THE FLIRTS

Before I went to London, I was asked to sing on two records for The Flirts, who were then a big dance/disco project masterminded by Bobby Orlando. Orlando did try to sign me but I was already on my way toContinue reading “FLIRTING WITH THE FLIRTS”

This has led me to ponder the nature of success in general. Some people experience success as one straight line like a rocket vaulting into theContinue reading “My Own Barber Pole”

Room for Me or The Pass & Workshops

Very odd I had posted a blog post a few days ago about my thinking about changing the name of  my one woman show and it seems to have disappeared. So the gist of the post, what do you think of the title ROOM FOR ME vs THE PASS? What do either titles conjure up?Continue reading “Room for Me or The Pass & Workshops”

Blue Bird Leaving the Nest

Lately I have been thinking a lot about home, and the role it plays in giving us a spiritual center. The apartment where I live in the West Village of NYC has been my dwelling for over thirty years; I have come to think of it almost as an extension of myself–like my arm orContinue reading “Blue Bird Leaving the Nest”
