“Getting ahead in a difficult profession requires avid faith in yourself. You must be able to sustain yourself against staggering blows. There is no code of conduct to help beginners. That is why some people with mediocre talent, but with great inner drive, go much further than people with vastly superior talent.”


Music always healed me. But I never would be so bold as to be the one playing it. Only observing and loving. Until that day at the Groupon discount Tarot card reader post-breakup where I swore I’d never smile again. 

I just learned what “gain” means. How can I hang out with musicians? How could I have the gumption to call myself one. To this day I tell people “I play tunes” not, “I am a musician.” 


It’s easy to get down on the fervor one’s talent lacks but I’m out here Doing IT. Relentlessly. Everything in life is a fine line. A perfect concoction. This quote resonated greatly with me. And from “one of the top 8 sexiest women to kiss John Wayne” at that.

Be bold. Take blows. Have faith.  

Be a cowgirl.
