Every now & then I get asked if there’s a song that I wish I wrote and truth is, I don’t listen to other music very often but when I hear “CHASING CARS”, it hits me like a ton of bricks. As a songwriter, it is important to me that people understand the meaning of my songs, so most of the time if I feel that something needs clarification, I will offer it, but, sometimes, as is the case with this song, it is best to leave the interpretation to the hearer; I’m sure the things I feel and think about when I hear it are unique to me ღ and I am very grateful it was written.
Today, my thoughts are on moving forward. As I pondered where we’re going and who will be joining us in this amazing time of life, I also thought about the many difficult decisions I personally have had to make in order to keep my faith & dreams alive.
When GOD speaks to you about your life and the promises HE has for you, I can promise you that every demon from hell will be right there with you to steal your belief. Remember, faith’s victory walk is not an easy one but its rewards are immeasurable
“For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith.” 1 John 5:4
If you want to receive all that GOD has for you, you have NO room for doubt or disbelief, nor should you ever allow it near you; even if it means that you walk alone–AND, my beautiful friend, sometimes alone is where you need to be.
People are awesome! Even if you’re not from California, I’m sure by now you’ve heard or have seen how horrible we’re suffering from fire after fire! Dwelling in this misery would be easy, but, right now, I am inspired and in awe at how my fellow brothers & sisters of the earth have stepped up in ways that I cannot express. I could never find enough words to say, “THANK YOU” to all those who have tirelessly dedicated the last several days to fighting fires, rescuing innocent animals, helping stranded people, donating, delivering, praying, calling, organizing, etc, etc.,
😘 PEOPLE OF THE WORLD,
YOU ROCK! 😘
Here’s a poem I wrote just for YOU, & YOU, & YOU, & YOU, & YOU, & YOU…
PEOPLE OF THE WORLD © 🙌
People of the world are all so unique
can’t we just learn to turn the other cheek?
Do what you can in your own time & space
and this will do more than the words that you waste

UPDATE: 12-24-17. Came back to finish and realized this poem is complete..
Good morning, Lovelies,
It is cold where I’m at right now, but, I have a mate to hug, a dog to love, horses waiting to see me, and music to write – So, this morning, my heart turns to those who have lost a loved one. You’re not alone…
This is a #poem that I’m working on titled, “ONE MORE TIME” © .
It’s cold right now & you’re not here / What gave me comfort has turned to fear / I’ll pray like you told me & ask for Grace / I’ll pray, but if only, I could see your face / One more time ..
I’ll post the rest of it when I finish.
“I THINK I” is the title to a song that I recently wrote. The song is a little jazzy, which reminds me of my father: An amazing jazz guitarist and singer who could croon his way into any arena with his voice and charisma.
“Though I didn’t write the song for or about my father, it pretty much could sum up how I would have felt if he would have let me in.”
Our two babies. One’s full of girly drama, the other is a typical Arab, jealous and protective over his mom.
You’re thunder & lightening and fire in the sky
You’re crashing of the ocean waves & hours ticking by – That’s YOU
The egg or the chicken:
I’m often asked what comes first, the music or the words. Most of the time my songs start with a thought or a phrase, which then incubates into its own life form, AKA a song .
I am incredibly blessed and sometimes otherwise with a very sensitive psyche and I feel much of what goes on around me. I am grateful for this gift as it leaves no subject off limits, so if you need it, I can provide AND with substance. Chances are, I’ve even been through it 😉
