Hi everybody. I apologize for being out of the loop. Things are really looking better now. After moving from the moldy house my life changed. I live with a friends elderly father, Don, a totally cool 86 year young retired pathologist. It's working out really well. He's a contemporary person and of good nature. I have a loft I call my little home. My music studio is in his wood shop. He can't use the saws now so I have managed to place my instruments and studio amongst the powers tools and saws.
I now have a summer gig at the Maya Hotel, Long Beach Ca. singing and playing steel drum and guitar, at the poolside and special event gigs. It's layed back, beautiful and I'm blessed! Thank you Michael from Calypso Compromise for continually encouraging me to play the steel drum. I love all of you!!! Louise, Status and Johnny! I still work on clients in bodywork, energetically, physically and spiritually. The surf hasn't been much but I'm out there when there's some, with my surfer buddies. I love you guys and girls!
With the techology of soundcloud.com I met a very talented singer, musician, rapper from Haiti, Johnny Joseph. It is his dream to have the world hear his music and I am honored he wants to work with me.We are now collaborating on a song in which he wrote the beat. It's called 'Believe'. It's about believing in ourselves because we are all connected to the divine source. Humans, all living things and mother earth. The future generations are born with this gift. I am very happy to see how truly beautiful they are. I will be singing my half of this song this Thursday, July 19th and then let the beat ride as he is now in the studio writing his half.
I want to thank you all again for signing my email list. Now that things are better I reflect and will not forget how hard it was when I moved to that other house 2 years ago. Some places are more hellish on this earth and that was one of them. I was down to a bike, which I'm glad I had and living in one little room, from a two beadroom guest house, with plastic on the doors and windows to try to stop the mold spores from coming in and dealing with a landlord who lost her head in alcohol. I saw many down and out people on Lincoln Blvd and Pico Blvd. Santa Monica has it's dark side. One night there was a man sitting on those cross streets without a nose. He must have been on hard drugs and lost it. I prayed for him and moved on. I won't forget about this experience and keep working on shining light, beauty, courage and strength. Again I thank all of you and love you.
Blessings, LA CAt
