and so it was written...

Thought it sounded cool. Kind of like a quote from an old technicolor Charlton Heston movie like "El Cid". Actually the reason i wrote it is because i see music in my future. Lots of it. I have always had a passion for singing, just never believed that I was good enough. After visiting a friend in San Fran this past week, she made a comment about my voice that made me start to think that maybe I do have something worth pursuing.

I started singing at a young age (thanks to my father). I was encouraged to sing and was introduced to many different musical genres. I found myself humming along to catchy tunes, or singing a walt disney tune in my head. Before long, the inside hum, became the outside melody. After a while my mom and dad put me in choir. I didn't understand my talent back then and thought it quite silly. Everyone in my family loved to hear me sing, but i again thought it was silly

Now, I sit on the eve of fortieth year and realize that i wasted time in doubting myself. I should have started earlier. As the great wise ones of the world said, better late than never. So with that said, "Universe, i know you have pushed me in this direction for a reason and I expect to run into someone who can use my talent and help me prosper with this gift as well" I want to become involved with music, although i can't read a note, i have a great ear for the music and can keep the same pitch (provided its in my key:-)

Thanks to all who believe in me on a daily basis. I think it was your faith that got me to realizing that i should do something with it. I think first stop will be to get a guitar and learn to mess around. Once i learn how to play, I will then start writing for myself.

Until next time....

Feels like a throat punch to my heart

So, I thought today was going to be just another Sunday of lounging around and netflixing.  I don't think I have ever been so wrong in my life.  To start with, Facebook reminded me of my memories.  I happened to click on a friends link and decided to follow another link to my very first girlfriends sisters page.  Its random how I got there, but I blame facebook.

To my shock, I saw that her sister had passed on the 22nd of November.  I was shocked because I knew that she wasn't that old.  I reached out to an old mutual acquaintance and found out it was pretty sudden and unexpected.  That had me in some kinda mood.  Because of that, I began to text and email friends and check in and make sure then were okay.

I got a text message from a close colleague I used to work with at a previous job.

Beck: "whats shakin CB"
Me: "Not much just wanted to say hello.  Had a wake up call today.  Found out first girlfriends sister just passed away.  So sad...she was young"

Just a friendly update on me :-)

Hey everyone

Just wanted to give an update. You may remember that I said I was going to be coming back to California, well it is official.  I am heading down May 1. I will most likely take the train and stop in Napa to visit my cousin Stephen Bordes at his winery for a day or two.  From there, I will catch a train to San diego.

I am currently looking for work and open to any positions that may be available, I just ask that you don't hold it against me because I have a masters degree.  I have seen many companies shy away from hiring me because I have a Masters Degree.  I am honestly looking to get off my feet and find a base of operation. My home is California and I know that now.  I am native and the air, soil and water are in my bones.

I am looking to establish which means I will need to find a place to live (that I pay for monthly), maybe even get a car (down the road) for now I know that I will have to use the bus and I am okay with that. I am nervous as hell about this move …

Movie Review: The Family Fang- 4.5 out of 5 stars

Narrator:  Imagine your dead. Feel yourself go numb. Start with your fingers, move to your hands, your wrists, right on up to your elbows. Everything is dead. If we can imagine our own death, but still manage to come back to life, then it proves we can survive, anything.

Baxter Fang: Don't be afraid. Own the moment. If you're in control then the chaos will happen around you and not to you.

This was one of the best and possibly overlooked movies of 2015 (which is why I am just now reviewing it in 2016) in my humbled opinion.  Jason Bateman is not only an incredible actor, but an extremely talented director.  I was never a fan of arrested development (probably because I never watched it).  However, after seeing Bad Words and now The Family Fang, I have a whole new respect for Jason Bateman
