WhoooBoy! I feel good.
I figure I'd better update before some people start to think I up-and-left this planet. Isn't life grand after you've walked through fire?
I went to the gathering and celebrated Roshimomma the other night, nursing a filthy-dirty vodka martini, flinging my new "Jaclyn Smith hair" and lifting my sweater proving I was actually wearing a bra. [Love-shout to my girls in the kitchen - and that one boy, whoever you are!]
If you think Roshimomma looks good in the collage below, you should've seen her the other night. I'm not kidding. We should all be so blessed to be that gorgeous at fifty. Hey, I'm counting my blessings at 35!
It was a unanimous love affair between my friends and my new hair. I'm still not completely sold on the 'do but with their screams of joy and total approval, I think I can suffer through the newness.

I'd like to thank Robbie for the amazing review about my gig [ish] last week. I have to say, she's been a great supporter of my music from the moment we met [here in AOL-J]. And she's the genius with the great idea to buy two of my Teaser CDs. One for yourself. One for a friend. The idea is that you give the gift with one condition - that they in turn buy one for a friend with the same condition...and so on!
Robbie's right. It is tough to break into any creative industry. There are many talented people who go their whole lives "undiscovered" because of the bubblegum factories. By today's industry standards, 25 is too old to start a music career. That means I should be dead and buried by now. But those who do well over 25 are true artists with a great deal of luck and blessings on their side.
So, the more Teaser CDs you buy, the more we can spread the word and the faster I can get the full-length CD produced and spread more of the word. Sounds like a plan.

I'd also like to say thank you to those who sent email, cards and left comments this week. My life is richer because of all of you. I continue to ask the same questions about life - and I imagine I'll do so, forever. But thelag time between downs and ups is getting shorter each time. For that, I'm grateful.
More to come... May love and laughter fill our hearts always.

P.S. I'm sorry I didn't update sooner. I spent all afternoon trying to post this entry. Thanks to the [not so] marvelous upgrades, AOL Journals has been "temporarily unavailable" the entire time. So this entry has been sitting in a holding bin since the light of day.
I've been having freakish computer problems for a few days though, so it's quite possible that my computer is the culprit. Either way, if you've read this entry, then apparently all is well. Just sorry it took so long to get here.
God bless 25,000 characters!
