From my quarantine quarters.

I finally did it! My first blog post! Behold, the moment has finally arrived! It only took me to be a contact case for Covid-19 in order to finally sit down and figure out how this blog thing works. Only the world will know what will ensue. In these posts, you can expect to read about my musical experiences, my stories of triumph (and failures), and the life lessons I've learned throughout my journey as a musician. I'm not really sure where this journey will take us, but life is like that, isn't it? I don't consider myself a writer, or even a blogger. I'm more of an introverted thinker. However, I would like to use this space to document my future projects, concerts, achievements, and even share some of the quotes and affirmations that have helped me move forward in my career.


This website has been a labor of love, and I must admit that I still have no idea what I'm doing, haha. Nonetheless, I am happy and proud of my creation on the web. Hopefully, it will allow me to share my journey with the world.

"Everything you experience flows out of one thing, yourself." -Jonathan Heston

This quote comes from a book called, The Unlimited Self. It resounded with me, because it can be applied to virtually any thing or situation that you feel is holding you back from being happy or achieving your goals. From fright, to anger, sadness, or frustration--these feelings are natural reactions to situations which sometimes are out of our control. But we can take hold of them, if we learn how to control our thoughts.


I'm currently quarantined in a room because someone near me tested positive for Covid. But this is just a room. What if I'm not trapped in here? I can use this time to read, write, and reflect. I'm grateful to have a space to eat, sleep, and think. If I close my eyes, I'm free to wander, and I can even imagine that I am somewhere else. On vacation, maybe. This is the power of the mind. I told you I didn't know where we would end up, and this is what we got. More on this another day. Thanks for reading :)
