Interested in me, huh?  Strange one you are.  

I like to think of myself as a renaissance woman.  The type who builds things, sews things, grows things, writes things, etc.  I am happy to see more and more people are coming to that realization as well.  It's a really good thing when people learn to do and not to depend.  

I started sewing at a VERY young age.  I tell my mother that I was her sweat shop employee.  She worked for Levi Strauss for a long time and then struck out on her own to design wedding gowns and such fancy things.  I was the one sewing on the beads and tiny things she "claimed" was easier for me to see.  HA! Poppycock.....

I always thought I knew better than her.  Could do it faster, with less material and all that....and everything I made always either fell apart or never got finished.  So, I finally submitted to her tutelage and am the better for it.  

I used to tour and sing all the time, but after a while I needed a bit more security.  I had a daughter and wanted to provide her with a stable, happy life which required more moola than I currently had at the time, so I put that fancy degree to good use and joined the corporate world.  I still write songs and sing and encourage my girl to be as creative as she possibly can.  So that feels good.

    I am a singer/songwriter, torn between my corporate life and my creative life, who just so happens to come from sewing roots deeper than the swamp, who still believes it's better to do it yourself.

    So, why 2AM?  Because, just like any good musician, I am nocturnal.....and my creative brain likes to catch its creative wind then... unfortunately my body normally shuts down on me then.... Go Figure... And sleep normally wins.
