I am in the midst of a major Transition.
God, The Universe, the Powers that Be, have predestined my Journey these past 8 months with so many twists and turns, you would think I was a Ride in an Amusement Park!
I am Blessed, I am Strong, and I am going to honor and document it all.
Since June 15th, I’ve taken 2,380 DSLR Pics + Video Bits, 500 iPhone Pics/Videos/Snapchat/IG Story Bits, 50 Instax, and currently making my way through rolls of B + W Film:
And OH the Summer Light …
As I purge, pack, and go through a Lifetime of Bits, I realize that everything in the last 20 years has led me to where I stand. And in looking back, it also gives me comfort for what lies ahead.
I left home in 1998 to live in an 1940’s Cottage in Midtown Sacramento:
Not a good pic, but most of the V Street Cottage Pics are packed away already: more to come! Scanned B + W Polaroid
I was a Manager of a CPS Homeless Shelter in Oak Park at the time, but I will not be posting those pics! In those two years, I tried to help Reunify Families and instill them with Life Skills. It is hands down, the hardest Job I ever had.
It’s where I lived when I proposed to my Ex Husband, whilst I was away on a Medical Mission in the Philippines and it’s where we would come home after many a Gig :

Then my Ex Mum In Law was violently Raped and Attacked down the street from Us:
It was a High Profile Case and it tested all of us on so many levels. We will be forever connected, because of it.
Then we Eloped in 1999:
He turns 50th Birthday today and I send out Happy Vibes where ever He is …
Not long after the Wedding, we moved into a 1930’s Apartment two blocks up from the Cottage:
We had the entire upstairs + I grew that Big Tree in front.
It was in this Apartment that I began one of the biggest Adventure of my Life:
My Creative Journey …
Musings on that, coming soon! Until then, follow my Instagram for daily updates!
