Rude Awakening

Rude Awakening

My reason for this blog was initially to have a place where I could up load my work. I suppose it is
safe to say if was a place for shameless promotion. In a tongue-in-cheek kind of way–
You see, after years of being in the shadows and supporting other artist I decided to let myself shine.
That we all have a right to do so; And if I had done that for so many individuals in the past, individuals
that I loved very much. Why then, could I not love myself that way as well.

I then felt the need to put together a blog in which I could promote the idea or ideal that women should be
able to bond together and have each others’ backs, as I find that men do. Whether men know each other or not
there seems to be a stronger code of ethics that they share, and ironical it is universal. I love that!

I put together a trip to Vegas with my dearest girlfriends, not all could attend, but 7 did. And one of the girls
included another girl who none of us knew, other than that one girlfriend.

My dream of bonding and joining in this–knights of the round table–came crashing down. Uncool stuff
happened that made me realize that perhaps it is something instinctual for most women to be catty
and dishonorable towards other women.

I still have great faith that I can unite women—I now, unfortunately, need to be more selective. I have to
freeze out the ones that have a natural mean streak that can’t be changed and will just make things rotten
across the board. We live and learn!

God Help Them for They are UGLY and Cruel

“I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go
wrong so that you appreciate them when they’re right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to
trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.”
— Marilyn Monroe
