If I had a lot money to donate to a cause… I would donate to help survivors of domestic violence get a fresh start.
I would want to be the hand up and out of a bad situation!
I wrote this song about Domestic Violence since I didn’t feel I could do much else at this point.
Something More Than Nothing
Caught up in my dreams, my desire to make money using my skill set remains. If music isn’t something I can make money at then… How about being a homemaker/caretaker/ assistant to someone in the entertainment industry? Now there is a big dream lol… I could work at helping to make someone else’s life better/greater and get paid doing it! That’s a more realistic dream than making it anywhere on my own musically. I could relocate to CA, with my G-Daughter and visit home,when we can. Executive Homemaker for hire lol! The money and esteem would be so worth the life change. Trust me, I’m ready…
My original music set to this video of our Christmas Village. Howard put in long hours getting this up and ready for me to decorate today. I am thrilled to get this finished up today.
So much labor but worth it in my opinion. I love having a Christmas Village to admire. I didn’t grow up with fancy Christmas decor. We were very basic and simple. Christmas was low key as I grew up. For whatever reason, my husband dreams big. He’s very good at artist creation and will spend hours perfecting whatever it is he wants to create. He’s been burnt out this year but did a fabulous job on this piece of Christmas.
I created the backyard decor lol…
Now for the baking and homemade goodie giving…
I hope you are enjoying the wonderful spirit of Christmas!
Christmas is emerging and along with the decorations, a small intro came to mind as I sat at my keys a Tuesday…
50 seconds of a Holiday inspired melody…
I so enjoy writing songs! Even if they fall on deaf ears. It is a rarity that anyone takes the time to listen to my originals. The majority of plays that I get on my channels are of my Supertramp covers. I get many views on a daily basis of those! Other popular retro cover songs as well, daily. Originals, are tricky to promote. I have yet to figure out the magic formula.
Here is my growing catalog of “Originals”. If I’m honest, I am proud of these! I like them and they hold a special place in my heart. I am always hopeful that something great will come from this energy and creativity. I’ve learned to overcome the disappointment that results from not being well received after I cast them into the sea of YouTube and SoundCloud… I come up empty and sad but then I realize, it’s the process that is the hook. Not the outcome. The creating, the thrill of the process is what I enjoy personally.
I would love to have these songs heard and enjoyed but the reality is, it’s a personal journey for me and if others don’t enjoy or get my music, it’s meh…

These are my babies… all songwriters must feel this way. They are insanely personal. My hope is that others will like them. Of course, I realize they aren’t mainstream.
Meanwhile, Real life marches on. Meals to cook, kids to oversee and a cat litter box all call to me. The endless revolving chores that are my life, beckon my attention. Have an exceptional day!!!!
This is a current 1st grade homework assignment that Amelia and I just finished. We had fun putting this together. I hope her teacher will like it.
I spent the morning on my original music! Tightening it up and daydreaming of actually professionally recording this. I have a whole vision for an album. How I wish I could record an album! Oh what an amazing dream come true that would be! Wow! Anyway, if you are interested, check out my SoundCloud Channel!
Here are the links to my uploads for today
