Be True to Yourself

Life begins when we realize who we really are, Divine beings made from love. Then we need to get in touch with our unique gifts we were all given and let our spirits shine. Don't ever let anyone tell you what to do, you are the only one who knows what path to take. Never give up on your dreams. Dreams come true and miracles happen every day! Expect great things to happen. Today is the only day we have use it well.

Hi! Mary, The first step is always the hardest.

Donated 11 inches of my hair today!

Today I am chopping off all my golden long locks, to donate to The Locks of Love. I did not realize saying goodbye to my hair would be so hard, after all it grows back. It is important to me to support my friend who is going through chemo and starting to lose her hair. I want to support her and show her that beauty comes from within. She is the most brave, strong person I know. From her diagn osis with stage 3 breast cancer, through surgery, and now chemo, she has never once felt sorry for herself or shown fear. I know she will get through this, and be cancer free soon. The least I can do is give up my hair to a good cause, and hopefully make someone feel better. To my friend - I love you

Song writing

I just finished writing a new song called "It's Your Time To Arise." It was really inspired I wrote it within 2 hours. I was in the basement doing the laundry, and all of the sudden this melody came into my head. It was amazing, I was not even thinking of writing a song. Then I went up stairs to play it out on the piano, and wrote out the lyrics, which just flowed out of me. I cannot wait to share it with everyone! This is definitely going on my next album I am preparing for.

What You Carry Within You

Thank you very much to all my friends, and fans, and fellow musicians for listening, supporting, and believing in me and my music! I would not have a career without you! Please watch and listen to my new video I am uploading, my second take of "What You Carry Within You" a new song of mine arranged for the piano. I hope you like it. Please let me know what you think and pass it on to others if you think it is deserving of being heard by more people.
