I've had such fond memories of being a young girl, riding in Hose Shows across the U.S., receiving blue ribbons and Candie Buttons as a special reward. This memory down the lane has brought inspiration and wonderment mainly of fond candies as a youth. Candie Buttons hung in a show for several months; each time I was in the gallery the appeal CB brought on was exciting not to mention the huge smiles on Patrons faces. I've tried searching for these fabulous wonders, but to no avail. They just don't make candy like they used to. :)

Punk rock hit the L.A. scene in ‘78. Unlike other teenagers, I moved out from my parents home, to exit the shame of violence. I went to school, worked at a bakery, a shoe store and waitressed at a retirement home to pay for a a guest house which included a basement. There, in the basement I fronted a punk rock band. I was 14 years old. The band had great exposure and local successes. Because of my age I was never allowed into the clubs to "hang out" only to perform. The group for me, lasted roughly 2 years. I was preyed upon by the keyboard player, he was 29 years old. In fronting other groups I found the same situation would occur; being preyed upon, sexualized, and in one instance brutally beaten in order to stay with the group. By 87, I abandoned a working rock band, ironically that band was called “Abandoned”. I was beat one last time. I packed a bag, headed to Seattle for a brain washing. I’d arrived and discovered poets who wrote music, incredible story tellers and a journey into darkness, light and unknowns. The road from Seattle back to Cali was a difficult, desperate and lonely time. Hilariously, I gave up the industry and went into theatre. I had a great run of co-starring roles in projects, one play matinee'd every weekend for over 2 years in 1993. This wasn’t the answer because at this time I was 30 years old, horribly drug addicted, penniless and contemplating homelessness. Five years further, a rough road, I finally awoke and asked for help. I could no longer see loneliness as a place of safety, that starvation could lead me to sanity and that a lack of spirituality was true guidance to being humbled, kind, human. It’s been years since I’ve looked at that girl I once was. I’m currently living on the Mesa in Santa Barbara, CA. I’ve a relentless drive for: it takes a second to be kind, anti filibuster, social acceptance, advocate for anti-racial educational conversations contributing to behaviors, attitudes and policies and finally, Collaborative efforts with my artist community in helping each other cultivate a vibe of positive, safe, and loving platform for and with each other.
