Mama was my greatest teacher, a teacher of compassion, love and fearlessness. If love is sweet as a flower, then my mother is that sweet flower of love.

Guess what day it is today?

Listen to a song I recorded, “Somebody Loves Me…”

And that somebody is a very special…MOM.

My art is for sale!

Happy Mother’s Day Weekend, Detourists!

A quick note today, because I’m at the amazing wellness spa, Canyon Ranch in Lennox, Massachusetts, where I’ll be presenting (and performing) a three-day workshop for a great, women’s empowerment-themed series!

This weekend, I hope we can all take some time to honor the mother figures all around us, and the “mom” in ourselves…that means taking some time to self-care, people!

Self-Care Strategies…

And I have a ton more ideas on the crafty section of my site. But hey, remember that CREATIVITY is just a mindset…and anyone can be a artist!

Mother Inspiration…

My mother has inspired me…for as long as I’ve known her!

She’s also helped me through some hard times:

She was the first person I told about being sexually abused.

She helped me be strong through…well, read, ARE PTSD SURVIVORS WEEK?

And she’s even had Detours of her own. Read her guest post in my weekly #LoveMyDetour series!

EVERYONE HAS DETOURS…right?

And I’m still taking GUEST POST weekly contributions...so if you’ve had ANY (I mean ANY) Detour in life, (what’s a DETOUR?) I want to hear from you!

Share your story and I can’t wait to share it on my blog! Remember, our detours are traveled more easily in solidarity, and you never know who your story might help!

A Special Mother’s Day Treat!

Have you been to 54 Below? It’s a beautiful New York City cabaret club with the most exquisite food…quite appropriate for a one-woman musical about waiting six entire years to eat or drink!

In honor of Mother’s Day, get your tickets now! I’ll be bringing Gutless and Grateful to 54 Below on Friday June 30, 9:30pm, and a powerful message that it’s possible to overcome anything with a bit of creativity, humor and and GUTS!

(and my great mom…she was even a participant in my latest DETOUR workshop!)

My mother has inspired much of my mixed media artwork. All of these are for sale too, and this card is great for the occasion!

Speaking of amazing women, lots of new exciting updates with FIBERS! A brand new solo play I’ve written based on oral history interviews I’ve done with my family all about my amazing Grandmother. More updates soon!

But for now, it’s time to take a breath, smell the (Mother’s Day) Roses, and appreciate Mom. And the Moms in us all!

God could not be everywhere, and therefore he made mothers.
