Still working on that hot first release.


Feeling a bit camera shy


Currently I am doing work in writing songs. I have several genres that I am working my way through to give a variety to my works. I began my life as the daughter of a man and woman who loved Lorretta Lynn, Conway Twitty, Ernest Tubb (my sister Pattys personal favorite) and I loved Roger Miller songs. Another early influence happened when Bobby Helms moved to my hometown. He was introduced to my father when my father was working for a contractor who was hired to build Bobby's new home. We would attend Nashville Indianas Little Nashville, and Bill Monroes campground located near Nashville, Indiana. I think the first song I wrote at thirteen was influenced by Marie Osmond who was introduced as a country artist following in her brothers footsteps but branching into another genre of music. From there my concentration was simply on poetry, with my starting piano lessons at about twenty three, though I have never gone beyond learning the scale and that was so many years ago. I joined a theatre group and while I was a performer with them, I took voice lessons from a classical trained musician who directed me in a stage performance of Steal Magnolias.
I personally am a sibling of three other children, and we recently lost one of my sisters. Three girls and one boy. As someone who loved family and their happiness I put a lot of emphasis in my life to making them happy and giving up my free time to help them while I worked two sometimes three jobs putting myself through school in several different areas of study. Only to find myself back in school now at fifty two because someone doesn't like the education that I already have. But at least I have worked and led a productive life until someone shoved me to the ground and held me down shoving my head under water (that is a metaphor for saying other people to like to make life rougher for me, and easier for them). I had been envolved in several activities that I have enjoyed to have them ripped from me and everytime they want me to get over the attack on my character and life, do something more severe and tell me life is not only competition but if I sue for retaliation they will retaliate if I retaliate they will sue me. Someone put it best when they told me it is only a fight if you hit back so don't hit back or it becomes your fault that it is a fight.
Would I say I couldn't live without singing or writing? Maybe but my life wouldn't be complete if I had to give up the things that I love. Also if life is about others saying life is for the fit or the best than I would say alot of performers would not be where they were if those alone were the rules of music and the industry. Furthermore we as Americans are taken away and constitutional values by a legal system and government that is unyielding and unfair in dispersment of justice and fairness. Likewise all of the self called help and causes that infringe on others rights, ( I actually was attacked as a child who was molested by a civil rights group that protected the molesters right to molest why because they felt it was his right to molest me and they protected his rights more so than my own) that lesson in life has strung out over my fifty two year life. I stood up for child abuse, I stood up for neglect, and participated in relays for cancer until...they turned their backs on me to take the money from me by force that I had worked for and sustained injuries for to give money to someone else. So when someone approaches me about quiting smoking, I have to laugh. Like someone who is a vegan and attacks a person who eats meat to the point they are willing to poison meat to detour people from eating meat. We have enough self help groups that are mare do wellers who like to live somebody elses life, they have such a bad life that one is not enough. Yes I am saying I am my own person and make my own decisions. What that has gotten me is a judiciary who says oh yeah we will tell you where to live and if you can live, talk to and be friends with. So much for Christain values and knowing or rationalizing they were acting in my best interest, I have earned less money under their opinions than I have in my life. Funny those who judge you don't like their opinions questioned. But it says Judge ye not lest ye be judged. The beginning of my life is overdue, I have worked too much and too long of hours to need to rely on being married to succeed. I can only say that those who have imposed that judgment on me have been the ones who have held me in limbo for their own personal jollies. I would be successful by now and have all I want and need if they would have just been fair to me.
I look forward to music and listening to music. I dreamed of being married and having children and knew it would come as soon as I was successful as a person and individual. But alas someone said I was an incomplete person, and started making decisions for me and screwed my life up for me, I was on the right track and I was correct. I hoped to p
