Okay .. lets try this blogging thing again and see if I can actually post it BEFORE I accidently delete it!

 

Tonight at midnight the new CD drops for radio programmers and reviewers. Then in two weeks it drops to the public and goes on sale.  That calls for a giant GULP...

Right .. spend a couple hours writing one corker of a blog post and then .. one wrong stroke on the keyboard and instead of changing the size of the font .. YOU DELETE IT!!

 

I'm telling you .. you'd have laughed .. you'd have raged .. you'd have cried!! Okay, maybe th...

The new album was done before the surgery to remove the tumor in my throat. We wrapped the vocals the day before I entered the hospital!! So the song selection was driven as much by my emotions (potentially the very last recording work I'd ever do!!) as the music.

I meet with the surgeon at the end of this week .. one month from the surgery. Things seem to be healing although I'm rubbing enough Helychrissum and Frankincense on the "scar" to float a boat. Guess I'm going to have to start looking for scores of beautiful, wispy sc...

Well, I sure didn't see THIS coming!! Depression!! HOLY CRAP .. really? Right now? Apparently so!! And at the worst possible time, of course ..

 

Like so many people .. I live with depression! And, like so many people, I try to hide it – disguise it – ignore it – blow i...

A neighbor generously gave me a ride to the hospital. I’d never met either he or his wife but I posted a request for some help on a neighborhood group. He offered and I gratefully accepted. It was nice to have someone to talk to and to distract me .. we talked about –...

Tests done – check, consultation with primary doctor – check, find surgeon – screeching brakes!!!

 

Sometimes I really question my decision making skills. In 2014 I hired two different “publicists.” The first one easily revealed what a mistake I had made .. right off the...

Whether you’re waiting for triple tequila margarita to be brought to your table after a very long day, waiting for the world’s slowest gas pump to burb out the mere 5 gallons of gas that you can afford, waiting for someone to belatedly appear when your appointment was...

So, I’ve known about this tumor for quite some time and I’ve known that it was having a less than positive effect on my body BUT .. sometimes you just get tired of dealing with STUFF!!! After the 2nd round of breast cancer (what’s UP with that stuff anyway?), I made my...

So, I've known for longer BUT yesterday was the "official" two week mark until my normal changes and I'm damn scared but .. what ya gonna do? You put your head down, plant your feet firmly, break out into as many cold sweats as come along and pray that you can handle "...

Dena's Blog

 

Well, the plan originally was to blog about the process of dealing with the tumor in my throat.. things change, right? Now, although I'll write considerably less (I hear your sighs of relief!), I'm still going to be writing because I have learned .. that I am, above all else, a mere human .. and so are you and we might share more than you could imagine .. so I'm going to continue sharing my life .. whistling in the dark and listening for a responding whistle confirming that I'm not as alone as it sometimes feels!
