SEPT ENEWS~ FUN MUSIC & FAMILY UPDATES!

 



































 

























Aloha Cuties,

How are you and those big dreams?!  Well I continue to chase mine :-) 

What a full summer connecting with you friends & fans at Unity of Kona (Rev Deb & I above) the 32nd World Congress on Illumination (some of the amazing presenters/artists above) right here in Waikiki, and most recently in Anchorage at Alaska Center for Spiritual Living (pics coming soon!)















BAY AREA POSIS

This weekend I’ll be reuniting w/ two of my fav friends/artists, Daniel Nahmod & Sue Riley, at Posi concerts in the Bay Area.  Plus sharing music & “Ohana Aloha” message @ Unity of Walnut Creek.  If you’re in the area, so hope you’ll join us for inspiring fun:
















 






























EMPIRE is BURNING UP!
Who watches EMPIRE on FOX?!  So sweet to find out a song I co-wrote with Oscar-nominated producer Joshua Bartholomew & Grammy-winning singer/songwriter Andre Merritt (our pic below) is featured in Season 5’s promo trailer



















Listen for “Burn for You” performed by Andre Merritt & Ayanna Eleese.  The fans are asking for the full song, so I think a single will be available soon!  Wow dreams do come true& more unfolding everyday! Yay!   Read more below about the songcamp that led to this hot song.










 














 
















 


DREAMS DO COME TRUE
I discovered a few years back, before kids, that I had this false belief:  to be successful, to do my music meant I had to lose people.  Thank God I changed that yuckiness around (in epic fashion I might add) so I was able to lose the stage fright, finally have fun on stage and yes, opened myself up to having beautiful kiddies.
 
Well now, I’m back in Hawaii raising our lil’ ones with Grandmas, Grandpa, cousins, etc.  So here I am with lotsa family, lotsa ohana love.  “Does that mean then now I have to lose the music?!”  asks my naïve ego.  The answer – “Hell no!” says the universe ‘cause I’m sure my spirit is saying “Hell yes” to having it all.
 
This summer has been proof that I can have family and all the magic of that experience alongside my expansion as an artist and thriving songwriter continuing to reach hearts around the world! 
 
In late June, I was notified that I was one of 10 local artists/songwriters chosen to participate in an epic songcamp held in July on the Big Island.  Each day, we were put in groups with successful producers, artists and music execs/supervisors to write & record a song for a specific tv/film placement.  We celebrated the last night hearing our songs with each group on stage with our designated music supervisor/exec sharing what the possible placement is for.  We had some magic dust in one of co-writes as the song I mentioned above is now featured in Empire’s new promo trailer.  It was humbling. I have much to learn from the younger, hipper artists, producers & songwriters but I am open, eager, excited and committed to milk this opportunity – for my own joy, my own stretching fun and also to build growing mailbox money for the family!

Following this amazing songcamp, I got to reconnect with lightworkers from around the world at the 32nd World Congress on Illumination held right here on my island at Waikiki near the sacred vortex at Diamond Head.  As I’ve been around the globe with them over the years at different vortexes, it meant the world to have them come to my home and for us, together, to share in healing, uplifting, love-filled work on behalf of our planet. 

***SPECIAL NOTE to WORLD CONGRESS ATTENDEES***  email me a few words on how you connected with my music thru the conference & I’d LOVE to gift you “YOUR TIME IS AT HAND” mp3

And not to mention, the highlights of being with UNITY of KONA & CSL ALASKA – all a part of my heart family!

There is no mistaking it, I got the message – yes family & music, love & thriving, ohana growth & personal/artistic expansion, all of it can be in my experience. 
The bottom line:  e can move from good to greater good to greater glory as RickieBB says (or at least I’m thinking it’s you Rickie that says this!).


We are meant to be dream chasers forever – finding fun in the chase & keeping our eyes on the intention.  And when we get “there,” it turns out who are in the “there” is who we’ve always been.  It just took the journey to realize that.  Wow…life’s a trip!  I am beyond grateful!  More ahas to share for sure, but this one was a big beautiful aha!!!















 















WHAT’S UP W/ DA OHANA

My family & I thrived thru Hurricane Lane.  It gave us a reason to have 4 days of quality family time since everything was cancelled.  We enjoyed seeing big surf, had some wind & light rain, not like the other islands that had rougher weather.


Since we last connected, my son, 7 yr old Kai, has lost two teeth just in time for school pics, my daughter Izzy has gained a year at a bouncy 3 yrs old & lotsa hair too.  Kai is now in Grade 2 and changed schools from a Montessori (which he loved) to a public school closer to home (which our wallet loves LOLO).  Izzy also had to change daycares with the unexpected close of her former “school.”  Kai is thriving & happy and Izzy too, when she’s not in hard negotiations with Mommy about why she can’t stay with me 24/7.

We continue our casual hunt for the perfect home...kinda hard to leave Grandma’s beautiful comfy crib :-)  And we've shown visiting friends around the island a few times now.

My hubby is happily busy reconnecting w/ all his highschool buddies & together planning some fab events & fundraising.  And we love spending our nights watching Survivor reruns on Amazon Prime with Grandma, who is now addicted as we are!

Wow if you've read to hear...you're awesome!

Will write soon again with some new music...till then, wishing you the best weekend yet!

Much love & hugs,
