Newbies, up incoming, indies. All of these words mean that there’s beautiful things to be heard, read, or watched that aren’t getting the press and media they need.
I’m a lover of discovering new and exciting things. From tech to entertainment. I seek out and search for things and people to listen to as they lend their voices to society.
I picked out five creative wonders to share with you all and one bonus film that I’m sure you’ve all hear of by now.
This musical moment has something for everyone. Check them out on their website http://www.americangoner.bandcamp.com

Who doesn’t love suspense and murder? This book has them both. The plot thickens as well as pulls you into an era from the past. Soon to be released check out a preview on his website drchetadamsforum.com
To round up some great entertainment and exciting work. I wouldn’t be a real superhero fan if I didn’t include today’s newly released Black Panther. The anticipation for this movie has been hugely important. The weekend is around the corner and what a great way to relax and enjoy it.

Music can heal. It can express how someone feels and it can give light in dark times.
I often have my headphones on and I allow myself to get lost in a song or a station on Pandora.
I use music to mediate and to drown out the world around me.
I’m grateful that it is Day 21! It’s gratitude January and today’s question is what song am I grateful for?
The song I’m for is Trouble of the world by Mahalia Jackson. I heard it first from my great grandma. It officially became my favorite song after watching the movie Imitation of Life.
I’m thankful for another Sunday and I hope everyone is having amazing blessings and positivity filling their minds.

Methodical notes. In the key of E. Emphasis on the piano and a high pitched sound of a violin.
The sound or better yet sounds that I am grateful for plays out in my life as music.
From gamma frequencies to delta beats of rhythm and blues. Punk rock when I’m a wild child and on the tips of my toes in a classical ballet. To the heels of my feet when a hip hop song plays.
Taking me to church on a regular day.
Music makes me grateful for these two ears. It drowns out my tears and lifts my spirits. It tells me a story and I can tell mine with it. Melody is heaven sent and I’m blessed beyond words with the gift of it.
The music has lead me to far away places and opened closed doors.
Day 10 of grateful January and the question is. What sound are you grateful for?
I’m thankful for another day to play music.

Christmas music to wake up my restless soul.
Heyyyy. I’m doing a little a jig in my seat. Simplicity is beautiful. Happy Tuesday morning. I swear my mind is elsewhere today. But I’m up and motivated sending you all smiles and music.
What a time to be alive. Right. Who’s with me?
2017 is finally leaving y’all. Hell yeah. I’m not going to miss it. I’m so grateful that I made it through. I can tell when life is ready for me to evolve because my physical and mental time clocks become distorted.
Talking clocks that remind me of what time it is.
I guess it’s time to wake up 😉.
Hopefully everyone is feeling fine this morning. Ya spirits are hopefully filled with joy. I’m sending positive vibes your way. Partly because I need some too. A boost of energy and a sprinkle of happiness to life’s greatest moments.
Let’s let go of anything other than peaceful things.
Smile from the tips of our toes and let it resonate out of our auras like a spiritual rainbow.
Take some time to zen out reach out and love today.
I’m sending peace and blessings to the earth today and hopefully everyone catches the vibes.

Went to Whole Foods and Trader Joe’s for the first time last night. It’s hilarious how excited I get over the little things . I ate all the samples I could get my hands on. I’m going to blame it on the fact that I didn’t eat lunch 😂.
I noticed that my face was getting red while in the store. It started itching on the way home. By the time I looked in the mirror I realized that I was having an allergic reaction. Damn.
I told my gurl Tam that I’m allergic to the planet earth 🌏. She laughed at me, but seriously I break out at the thought of breaking out.
Woke up from my Benadryl induced nap and ate the equivalent of nothing. Yogurt that is. I needed a quick boost of energy because I was definitely woozy.
Now I’m up and checking my timelines. I finished some editing and of course I’m jamming to the beat of my Christmas music channel on Pandora. A toe tapping good time at 3:23 in the am.
Friday is shaping up just fine. I’m doing a double cookie day. One with my parents and one with my sister this weekend.
Finding joy in simplicity is the key for my happy days. I’m embracing the facts of life. I’m thankful for another day and I’m grateful for the blessings brought to me from above.
Hopefully this day will be great!
Sending you peace and blessings on this beautiful day 🍪🍡

Found myself up early getting my morning cup of zen. Headphones on enjoying meditation music and sending my son off to school with positive vibes.
Took a mini nap and awoke to the sound of the phone. On the other end was someone that I used to know.
Unfortunately I can’t relate to them anymore. It pains me when life turns friendships into nothing. I constantly pray for that someone. I hope his life turns out amazing even though I won’t be in it.
Maybe life will surprise me.
I tend to be alone in my own space contemplating life. Analyzing my mistakes and my triumphs. Of course like anyone else I would like to see everything go right.
I would like to see everyone be happy. I’d like to make the whole world dance but not everyone is in the mood for music. So be it. Guess I’ll make a cup of coco and put some marshmalleys in it to make me smile.
Wishing you and yours a happy Thursday ✨
Bright and sunny morning outside. The wind smells fresh and cool enough to bring tears from the chill. I’m being thankful.
Monday sweet Monday oh how I adore you.
Listening to Christmas music and playing a couple of hands of digital spades I refresh my spirit. Off tune and lip singing I groove to the beat.
Checking out my social media and trying to be helpful to my fellow writers I embrace the day. Uplifting is a soul filled with kindness. I’m not always the kindest of the kind. (I think I made that word up lol 😂) (nevermind google searched it and it’s a word double 😂 😂)
I stroll and enjoy the thoughts of others. Shake off any negativity and keep it pushing. There’s more important things to think about. I pray quietly for myself and others turn my thoughts to a positive radio station so I can focus on the beauty of this day.
Yes my mind tends to remember the past like any other human my memories can grab a hold of my heart and twist it tight if I allow it to. The trick is to kick those thoughts ass before they can have a pity party. There’s nothing wrong with wanting more for myself than sadness. It’s time to live. Not that the love has faded or that the pain is gone. Those things remain. The only thing that changed is the want to receive the awesomeness that I am being given everyday. It’s available if I want it.
I have to grab hold of smiles and laughter. I have to reach out and say good morning to a stranger. I have to be willing to send peace and blessings out to the universe to receive it back so that’s what I do.
Hello universe I love you!
I know that you love me back 😉
Today I’ll let bygones be bygones and reach outside of my Pandora’s box grab hold of my sanity and unlock the mindset that keeps me captivated by the unnecessary. Dance in the rain of the storm kick off my shoes and open my soul up to gratitude because I made it through another day. Awoke today to happiness and the calmness of life.
Have a happy Monday y’all we earned it! 💋🌺
