The Truth Is

The truth is…
You are born and then you are on your way out. You show up naked and alone. Your Mother holds you as you scream and cry in the bright lights. The world is yours, and you are apart of the world.

Your tongue- sharp like a King’s sword. It flips and hums with your voice box, creating vibrations and magic throughout the air. You speak aloud, you look honest, you are honest.

One day, you are able to understand what someone tells you. You then begin to slowly learn the ways of the world.

You’ve been told so many things. You have adjusted to be apart of the earthling dream.

You ask, “who am I?” You begin discovering your senses, your ticks, your urges, your limits, your power… you find you.

In the mirror, you see you. You begin to question yourself who you are again. But this time, it’s different.

That person you thought you knew, was an accumulation of characteristics and thoughts that the human dream projected onto you.

“Who am I really?” you ask.

Your self exploration begins again. You spend every day trying to find the answers. Your ‘clean-up’ protocol mimics a computer. Reprogram, reboot, delete, backspace, defragment, repair…

The maps are rolled out. The windows are open. Rewiring takes place.

Your eyes reopen like they did when you first saw the bright lights in the world.

And this time, Mother Earth and Universe greets you with open arms and you hug spiritually like a tree.

Clarity takes focus.

“I finally see.”

You spend years trying to find more clarity and focus.

You want to uncover the mysteries. Some uncover. Some don’t.

You gravitate toward people who are like you. You finally find your people. Your tribe.

You learn how to be an even better person in every way. You count your blessings. You understand the real definition of love.

You become harder and stronger, yet soft and sensitive.

“It is what it is” you say. “Life really is short, and I know now what I need to live by.”

“I just want to be back in my Mother’s arms. I want to live to love.”


She’s Not There

Lyrics time…

Well no one told me about her the way she lied
Well no one told me about her how many people cried
But it’s too late to say you’re sorry
How would I know why should I care
Please don’t bother tryin’ to find her
She’s not there

Well let me tell you ’bout the way she looked
The way she’d act and the color of her hair
Her voice was soft and cool
Her eyes were clear and bright
But she’s not there

Well no one told me about her, what could I do
Well no one told me about her, though they all knew
But it’s too late to say you’re sorry
How would I know, why should I care
Please don’t bother tryin’ to find her
She’s not there

Well let me tell you ’bout the way she looked
The way she’d act and the color of her hair
Her voice was soft and cool
Her eyes were clear and bright
But she’s not there

But it’s too late to say you’re sorry
How would I know, why should I care
Please don’t bother tryin’ to find her
She’s not there

Well let me tell you ’bout the way she looked
The way she’d act and the color of her hair
Her voice was soft and cool
Her eyes were clear and bright
But she’s not there

Song by The Zombies

Taste The Rainbow


Flesh to ashes

Dust to wind

‘Til death do I part

You win

Swaying in the storm

Dirt devil in the sand

Leaves in the pool

Begging homeless man

Sun burns my eyes

Feet charred from the grind

Heart still beating

Test of the mind

Heart wired strong

Faith and despair

No more persecution

Only wind in my hair

Freedom at last

It’s the last freedom

Taste the rainbow

Have rhyme

Have reason

Southbay Sunset


Like a Southbay sunset…

he came

and he went.

Just like love

falling away from your finger tips.

Distance you must travel

to open your mind.

Traffic is crap almost every time.

I love the palm trees.

I love the sun.

Will there ever be room for any one?

Blessed rain,

washed the sins of the town away.

Out came the sun,

what a glorious day.

Chère Chérie

Hey all! Whaz uuuuuuup,

Lisa19After you read this jargon, you will get to see some fun pictures! If you don’t read, then get-a-scrollin’!

I am not a model, but I do like to model since I know how to and do get paid every so often to pose. After working a lot in front of the camera, I am picky about who I shoot photos and even video with. Some photographers do not give me satisfactory lighting or stable shots, so the photos wind up blurry and not properly exposed, or they just suck in general. With cinematographers/videographers, they need to know their lighting and know what shots are going to look good. If I know they can’t handle the simple stuff, I don’t bother. I think a shooter can be green in experience, but if they know how to operate the camera and have a good concept, then why not shoot with that person! They are probably going to do something unique and cool. If the shooter can edit pretty good then that’s a bonus as well.

Recently I got an offer to shoot stills with my old friend and co-worker Jason Jolliff. He is a super talented videographer and editor, as I have worked with him in video productions throughout the years. When we work together, I host, and he shoots and edits. Since that chemistry works, I wondered the chemistry could work for stills?

Jason said, “I’m doing photography now, let’s shoot at the 247 Lounge!” He explained a rad concept to me detailing a ‘red couch on the stage’ with a ‘movie screen behind it’ playing moody flicks. Then he added that he had a nice lighting kit he would bring. Where do I sign? It sounded like fun.

So, we made it happen. We set it up. Started shooting. The ‘photographer and subject’ chemistry was present, and we came out with these pictures below. Mind you, this is only Jason’s 3rd photo shoot he has ever done. Je t’aime!

Save It ‘Til The Morning After

Eyes with a gleam.
Soul with a smile.
He took me under like Mr. Poseidon.

I held my breath, and opened my mind.
Then experienced something I can hardly describe.

Dazzle in the dance.
Dapper in the face.
Would you please kiss me now in this place?

I had the hors d’oeuvres, then the main course.
Still hungry, this one needed some more.

Starving for the love drug.
The speedbombs of smack
Serotonin mainlined- got my body jacked.

Haven’t been right since, or maybe I’m right now.
Your lips, your mouth I can’t live without.

Heaven Does Exist On Earth

IMG_4517You say heaven is a really far off place? No, it’s not. It exists right here on Earth. You just have to be open to experiencing it, and willing to do a little bit of traveling 🙂

You will see a bit of heaven on Earth in my video from St. Barth, an island in the West Indies.

Has Mystery In Relationships Become Obsolete?


What if it was like the old days when your loved ones would jump in their horse n’ carriage and ride off for days, months and even years! How neat would it be to run to the mailbox everyday, hoping you received a letter from that loved one who is miles away? The mystery combined with the anticipation was a magical concoction, creating a novel-like steamy romance!

Those days of being a naive prairie woman who waits, and waits some more for that love letter to come in the mail, are well over obviously. The reality is, we all know a Disney ending doesn’t exist. The Bachelor is staged too! But there is something that did stick with humanity through all of those hard times, and it is an important element that must be preserved now!

An epidemic that I see happening, and that prairie woman did not have any problem with, is that the element of ‘mystery’ has almost become obsolete.

Today, we can all communicate in seconds from opposite ends of the world. Information is communicated so fast now, there isn’t much mystery left between people since we all share everything! Although communication styles are new, people still long for that old-fashioned romance which is packed with mystery. The only way to have that old-fashioned style romance is to create mystery!

The only way to keep that essential mystery in a connection, is to create mystery! Don’t tell any full story in a text message/email/IM. Save it for the physical interaction, or else you will NOT have anything to talk about when you meet up! If you can’t meet in person for a long time, then save the thoughts and stories for an actual phone call, but don’t tell them every single detail. You need to keep your mate curious or else they’ll get bored. I’m even talking to you people who are in long-term relationships. You have to keep that flame burning too.

In conclusion, essential mystery in romance can exist, only if you decide to make it exist! Without mystery, there’s no curiosity, and without curiosity, boredom is born.
