Rambling Change

     It's amazing to me how things can change day by day, and especially year to year.

     In junior high, I was the starting shortstop and leadoff batter for the varsity fastpitch team.  And I must say that I was pretty damn good.  Throughout high school I consistently made all tournament teams, all state teams, and ended up with several scholarship opportunities.  Not to mention I had great grades and the highest college entrance score in my class.

     This was how my future was supposed to go...play softball at a university for four years, go on to graduate school, move to a city and work on my retirement.  That didn't last long.

     Somehow I survived through a full year of partying and neglecting my classes...I absolutely loved softball and worked really hard at that, but I was not a college student.  Against the better advice from my coaches and teammates, I quit and moved back home.

     After another several years of wandering aimlessly through life, I "kind of" settled down, in my second marriage.  I had always dreamed of playing music for a living, but never thought it was possible.  Well, I've tried everything else, let's give this a shot!

     Thankfully my husband is 1,000% supportive and I have plenty of family who help me with my daughter and son.  So for the past few years I've been working as hard as I possibly can and loving every minute of it.

     This is the short version of my story.  What I've learned is that in order to live a happy life, you absolutely have to do what you love to do.  Being a full time musician is not for everyone, you honestly have to be a little bit "off". But I wouldn't have it any other way.
