I returned to the city of Washington in 2009 to be nearer my parents, and within three years the majority of my siblings joined me back in the area. I spent those first months reopening lines of communication between my brother and 3 sisters and in 2015 we stood firmly together as our parents divorced after 47 years. Their children were an unified force as we moved them apart. The great happiness my parents subsequently found in new relationships has been a ray of light in a long journey for them both.
A few years prior I hit my own restart button and began writing music again after a multiyear break. To make a record I decided to partner with a producer in Tennessee, and called a musician/composer I knew from college. Over 2 years he became one of the greatest artistic instructors I have ever worked with, and he reawakened my dormant spirituality and softened my heart. over those years a greater understanding began to set in and Twenty-four months later we not only birthed my first full length record, but I had became spiritually born anew.
Throughout my life I have gravitated towards those around me whose talents exceeded my own. I sat close to to them, listening and learning. But in my years back in Washington, DC I began speaking confidently as the teacher. In my adult life I have found I'm consistently the most trusted voice in the room and the first to be looked to for help or counsel. I possess a large emotional IQ as well as spacial and visual abilities, plus I am experienced as a sacred intimate and surrogate, giving me a broad understanding of the complexities around body wisdom and emotional/physical connections.
