V is for Vulnerable

There is a person I barely know, yet weighs such a heavy presence in my mind. I admire him, I suppose. Thus, his opinion matters to me. We are very different people, and I have these oddly random moments of reflection regarding my music: will he like it? His taste are very different. I’ve subsequently realized his presence isn’t about him, but the general concept of him. I am continuing to create exactly as I am always, knowing intellectually not everyone will like it; and this is ok. Not everyone should, that would be boring.  Another factor to consider, we can NEVER control or anticipate how another person will respond to our behavior. He might surprise me, and really like … Read More

-Aristotle  Essentially this means, where there is an empty space, matter goes to fill it. This being said, I am no longer involved in my dessert business. Over the last week, sadly, I have been devastating clients as I’ve let them know I’m no longer pursuing the business. I have closed down shop, metaphorically. My dessert site will be changing to more of a desserts blog, because I do still have a creative, healthy desserts taste bud. 12 years ago when I first got into the massage business, I knew at the outset, it was merely for a trade skill and not a career path. Similarly, when I started the dessert business 6 years ago, I knew I didn’t want … Read More
