Wednesday, February 29, 2012      2 comments

Wow, I made a huge discovery yesterday. I did a repertoire coaching with a coach from New York. She's a gal who helps performers pick the right songs to audition with for musicals and such. I had audited her class here in town for the past four... Read more

I found these affirmations I had saved a long time ago. Good to read again. Thought others might find them helpful. Reprinted from the Dusty Press C1999 1. My worth as a person is not diminished in any way by my body size or by by eating p... Read more

Yesterday I participated in a career day at a local arts high school in Los Angeles. But it wasn't a usual arts high school. These kids don't audition. Everyone is welcome. Everyone can participate. The kids build their own sets, costumes, learn... Read more

Was at a club on Friday night to see a friend sing. Was sitting next to a table of friends who were waiting for another to join them. I didn't know the person they were waiting for. When she arrived, she entered flamboyantly and very LA ;-) Sung... Read more
EXACTLY what I needed - A Facebook Tag!
Thursday, August 19, 2010      9 comments

The universe is a funny thing. It sends you things just when you need them. Even if it happens to be in the form of a Facebook tagged photo. One of my voice students just tagged a photo of me on Facebook from a few years ago. SHEESH. What a real... Read more

It's been a rough couple of days for me. Last year around this time I went through a break up and all the hearts and flowers of the past weekend conjured all that up again. But I found this - a good reminder. Enjoy :-) xoxo www.youar... Read more

During 2009 I was determined to not get on that scale. After all, it had not exactly been my friend for the past four decades. I was staunchly devoted to my measuring tape and focused on the next "inch" as my goal. It worked. I lost 60 lbs in 20... Read more
