It Is What It Is

Thought I would share the lyrics from one of my songs on the new album called "It Is What It Is"...

It is What It Is

Looking back I can see
The bigger picture in front of me
At the time I was so low
Couldn’t tell which way to go
Some folks tried to tell me
What it is I need to be
They spoke of what they know is true
Because they had gone through it too

It is what it is, it is what it is
One thing that I know now
It is what it is

At the time I couldn’t hear
Their word were falling on deaf ears
Wisdom can be only learned
Through the experience earned

I cannot change the past
And I cannot always have my way
I take the good and the bad
And let it all fly away

It is what it is, it is what it is
One thing that I know now
It is what it is

Love and Music

I haven't blogged in forever it seems, and though I have often thought about it, just could not bring myself to, as there was nothing I felt I could really talk about at the time publicly. See I have been making a lot of big changes in my life in recent months, life changing decisions and have not been in a place to be able to talk about it, so I have been keeping it close to home and the heart.

The last several years have been very emotionally difficult for me, for reasons I cannot get into. But I can say that I really lost sight of who I was and where I was going. In essence, I was turning into another person and it wasn't someone who I liked or who made me happy. It was not until last summer when I began recording my songs and working on my album, that I slowly started my ascension out of the deep hole I was in. In fact, I didn't know how lost I was! Now I am at the surface, and for the first time in a long time, I feel like I am back on track to where I should be and should have been all this time. I cannot look back with regrets and as they say, everything happens for a reason. Truthfully though, I have had some days filled with regret of past decisions I made that ultimately lead me down the wrong path. With the recording of my new songs, I began to feel important again like I was rediscovering my soul and I realized that I do have something special to offer after all. I don't know how or when I became so low, I suppose it was little by little with each passing day. But all that is behind me now, I have moved back to my true home, New Orleans, to start over and I also made the heartbreaking decision to leave my marriage. What is left after all was said and done is only love and music. This is who I am and this is where I will be from now on.

As for my album, it will be finished very soon. I am so incredibly amazed and proud of what we have done. Yes I said we, as without my two talented and lovely friends Winn McElroy and Cody Dickinson, it would not have become the beautiful work that is is. And without the experience I would not have been able to find my soul again and climb out of the dark.

More news soon...

Happy Easter!
