2010 Makes 3!

If you know anything about numerology, you will know that 3 is the number of fame and being in the limelight. But of course that means the same thing for all of us. Can there be a world where all artists get some modicum of success? I have come to realize that I would not be happy in the cut throat world of real stardom.
I know what I would be like. I would be very competitive and probably do anything to stay on top. I'd be overly concerned about my looks and perhaps I'd even stop eating. (Heaven forbid) I'd have many migraines from the stress of it all. I can't see me being truly happy.

When I'm working steadily, like a few gigs a week, I'm really happy and never think about what anyone else is doing. But, then I tend to neglect the slog work of promotion and making new contacts. But when I'm not working regularly I'm miserable. I feel my life is over and I have to be diligent about staying in the now. I feel so guilty about all the dresses and shoes that aren't being worn.
This is why the theory about the 100 True fans seems a very suitable solution. Just 100 people who love my songs and will purchase anything I deliver. I'd be very happy with that.
So, maybe there is, with lots of work, a      possibility that we can all have a suitable   career.

We're Doing What We Love..Where's The Money?

(This is the view from my parents house in Spokane. I've never been there! )

I met up with a friend today, a very talented healer. I mean, she goes deep. But she has to spend every waking hour trying to figure out how to make a website that ranks first in Google to drive people to it who will buy something just so she can survive. She's been at for over a year with no success. I find myself getting angry at her because she so very anxious about it. We've all heard about the secret but I don't know anyone who has succeeded at the manifestation part. I mostly know musicians and we all seem to be in the same boat.

I've come to think that unless we remove all ego and fear from what we're trying to achieve, it's never going work. Ahh.. but how the hell do you do that??? I'd love to hear your ideas.

Too Many Dresses Not Enough Boys

I've been away for that I couldn't remember how to log in and got really confused but I'm back on track.

These are two of the best pieces as they are heavily beaded and brilliant quality. I was able to wear it for a cocktail party we we're play at with one of my line ups...

I seem not to be able to let anybody else eat into my ever growing collection of hand beaded vintage tops and dresses.

If only I could find musicians I love and who have lovely attitudes like these boys. But these boys are not always available because there can be no loyalty in the Australian jazz world.

Let me know if you have one of these wiggle dresses to sell!!!!!
