This is one of the lessons in life that happen -- do not procrastinate, there may not be a tomorrow. I will miss Alex, with her energy, her beauty and her sassiness!! Need… Continue

Color me Again

Haven't been able to write since my Mom passed but I tried yesterday.



Color Me Again



Everything I love is art

Creativity and expression

Colorful words with dancing photographs

And paintings that come a live

With your imagination

This is where I want to stay

But my daily life

Keeps me astray

I need to bring

What I yearn for

Into reality

And I don’t know how



A dance

That has a heart beat all its… Continue

The Farm Sanctaury: My New Video

This past week we went out to the Farm Sanctuary and the Manager, Leanne Cronquist, introduced us to the animals the members of VegHqaven are ALREADY supporting! 



When I was at The Farm making the video I got to spend the day with children, families, and others coming out to spend a day appreciating life. I'm honored that our community can play a role in helping The Farm Sanctuary continue to rescue, educate and advocate for animals. They…

Happy Gohonzon Birthday To Me!!!!

Hey fellow believers, today I celebrate 8 years of practicing Nichiren Daishonin's Buddhism as a Soka Gakkai Member! I can't believe how quick time has gone by since then! I remember how hopeless I was when I started, feeling like the best years of my life had gone by and that a career in music was beyond my reach. Now I play in four bands, have a great job a mile from home, a great apartment that lets me play drums and a brand new car, and I am getting established in the Chicago music scene… Continue
