Before I knew you...

Before I knew you, your name was just a name
letters on my screen or page
nothing unqiue or silly or lame
It had no connotation or impulse or muse
it didn't make my heart jump or make me crinkle my nose
but now that I know you, better near and far
something more than a name, its now who you are.
I see it in front of me and my heart skips a beat
what is this feeling, why has it become a treat
just to see your name, it calls to me
as I wait for your next words
what does.....he say....next, to me...
__________ says, I swoon I wait
for the coming oration of our fate.

Its like a connection, our connection
leading to affection and attention.
I can't wait to see your name, your name.

It's silly how just something ordinary now isnt so
I'd think it wouldnt matter or make me feel and glow.
but that name with that face with those words and those lips
Link me to some unexpected lovely adventurous bliss.
Your name now isnt just any word or phrase
it's chocolate and sweet and lovely to taste
It has boldness and uniqueness and flows through my mind
like swift singing songbirds standing still in time.
O grand illusion, stay with me now
and be more than a name, be more
and helps me walk on the clouds...

before I knew you, just letters and a name
now so much sweeter, never the same,
your name.

To be or not to be...different

Uh oh. Here comes another anecdotal and self-aware journal entry blog post. Yup. You guessed it. So, shall we?

A lot has changed. New year, new President, new ban, new ideas...yet I am still me. New endeavors are in the midst.

I have since decreased most of my medications. And now I'm more me than I have been in 3 years. It's good and bad. I stopped therapy due to not having insurance but plan to go back once I find a new doc on my plan. Starting over....ugh. Not going to be fun.

But here I want to write down my struggle. I struggle to be who I think I need to be and who I am naturally. It's not about being cool or fitting in at this point. I already know I have a lot of "personality." About enough for two or three people. That's either your thing or it's not. Some call it quirky, unique, crazy, lots of different things. I've always had to edit myself in crowds and at work, in school...everywhere. That is why being on the stage was so easy for…

Candwich is back...back again!

The Candwich - Sandwich in a Can
The Candwich - Novelty? Gag Gift? Joke? Lunch? I'd say all of the above. This "sandwich in a can" is definitely silly and weird and I can't tell if it's the best thing in the world or the worst thing in world. Irregardless, I have had the opportunity of working with the Founder, Mark Kirkland, or as some call him the "Earl of Candwich." He is a genuine person and truly wants to give back and help "can" hunger. Mark is no stranger to controversy and has had his fair share of hiccups along the way in building his Candwich-opoly.

A Viral Sensation
Candwich went viral in 2010 when the New York Times broke the story about a rogue investor who ran a Ponzi Scheme and stole upwards of $145 million from creditors who wanted to invest in Mark One Foods Corp, Candwich's parent company. It took a long time to settle with creditors but Mark has successfully regained control of Candwich and wants to bring his sandwich in …

So this is thirty...

So this is thirty. I haven't been writing much because what you probably don't know is that my new job is to write. It's silly and something I fell into and I'd like for this blog and my many, many years of needing to express myself and tell stories to go into me finding this path. Once a storyteller, always a storyteller. I like to believe that this is true. Since I was young, I have had so much to say. More than most can keep up with. With that, I either entertained and wowed you or sent you running for the hills. Either way, I've learned from the cues and have worked to know where I fit in and when not to speak but when to write down. It started with journals, then poems, then songs, then this blog, more songs, and then I stopped. I transitioned from vomiting feelings on the page to thinking more strategically for an audience and thinking about my brand what I wanted to say to people who follow me. I don't know who realllly follows me, but if I w…
