Hold onto Peace

There has a been a death of what some people consider the most wicked of wicked men. Last night my husband recieved a text from a friend asking if we’d heard what happened. We don’t watch the news, so we were shocked to find out that Osama Bin Laden was killed. In this moment, many…

Them good old days.

  People often say phrases like, “Those were the good old days.” or “They just don’t make them like they used to.” or “No one produces good music anymore.” I find this HIGHLY generalized and untrue. This way of thinking is supposed to give you warm gushy feelings about sock hops and soda shops, but…

Puppy Wuv

  Hello again. Thank you for stopping by. My, you sure look nice! What are you all dressed up for? You didn’t know I had a camera mounted in your room, did you? Oh shucks, calm down. I can’t see anything but the words I’m typing on this page. Onto business…

Reality Check!

  I find it fascinating how many people will watch a “reality” TV show religiously and believe every scenario they present, but continue to question the most real situation that happens to us after our death and the ultimate purpose of our lives. Heaven or hell? You ask this and most people will laugh at the fact…

Revelations of Jerrell Conner

In February of 2008, I was invited to accompany The GroundUP Pirates on their first California art tour. A hand full of us flew over five hours of land and water anticipating what this could mean for GroundUP…and for ourselves. One of the artists was Amy Wagner. She’s known to have an entourage wherever she goes, and a few…

Fallen Eve.

When I first meet them, I get nervous. I wonder if I’m good enough, smart enough, pretty enough, witty enough. All of the doubts I have come to the surface when we are first introduced. What do I say? I’m not interesting. Do we have anything in common? I have nothing to offer. Most women…

MaiLe’s Canvas

February 2008 was my second experience modeling for genuineHI‘s The Next Movement. To be perfectly honest, I’d been involved in other shows where my hair and makeup wasn’t up to par because they weren’t used to the texture of my hair or my skin tone. Thinking this time would have similar results, I had already…

Freedom of Design

I’d seen her at different GroundUP art shows and noticed the talent behind her digital designs a while ago, but it wasn’t until a separate art show in the summer of 2008 when I finally met her and saw her portfolio. My friend and photographer Neilnorman showed me the new glossy business cards he just…

Confirmation Station

Being a Christian, I choose to go the way God leads me and seek His advice when it comes to making decisions in my life–major and minor. Confirmation is a way He lets me know I’m on the right path. For those of you who are unfamiliar with that term, it’s when God shows or…

Speechless…

Recently, a few people have commented on how they most appreciate my singing above my other gifts. I’d have to say that falls pretty low on my list of favorites. The reason being that it exposes who I am. My voice is ME. I can’t hide behind a camera, layers of makeup, a fictional character,…
