what does love look like?

What does love look like? Does anyone know? Like many things, subjective, intimate, it's all relative.  However, the forms of love are vast and wide.  I think each person needs or requires different types, forms, level and expression of love.  I suppose finding a good partner is finding the one person who knows what those are for you and themselves, and in that you both can contribute enough love to satisfy and help the relationship grow.

Some are talkers, show-ers, do-ers
others cry and sing and write poems
some barely say a word but provide financial security
what is love to you, is it purity?
Is it commitment, loyalty, faith and forgiveness
does it look anything like Freud or Adonis?
Is is letting go or holding on
is it knowing you might have picked the wrong one
for parent, child, spouse
either broken or together in a house
what says i love you more than i do?
what physical aspect reveal to you the truth
to want to give to sacrifice
what does love look like to you?

roses? diamonds? pearls?
creating a baby boy or girl?
helping someone fulfill their dreams
loving your body by eating your greens
is love jealous, absent, flirtatious and wild?
is love found best in the innocence of a child?
is it strong enough to say enough
or keep to themselves their diamond in the rough.
to shift to change to water and grow
whats selfless or careless to let it show?
What is love what does it taste like?
what does it wear or smell like?
How do i say i need to feel it
like its mine, no deal to keep it
I deserve to know what is real
and if I see if it is real
if u don't know what I love you means,
keep it to yourselves unless you see
i mean really see and know and feel
the intangible incredible unconditional zeal.

and oddly enough love isnt enough, when creating your life. Ive seen it all fail.  I've felt it fail, love is not enough.  but to love and be loved, now that is something incredible and to keep on doing that because you must, you have to because nothing life can throw you should every compromise your promise or contract that you love and will love until the end of time.  Where is that love? Will it ever be mine?

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…
