Moving past 
Stepping forward
Sto andando oltre
Until I can't remember the color blue
Until I can close my eyes, and not see you


Da me a voi…

Nei tuoi occhi azzurri
Ho trovato tutto quello che avevo perso in me
Mi sveglierò con te, ogni giorno della mia vita


I want to be all of me with you
Not less
I want to be seen
Through your eyes
To see you
As you
Bathe in the truth of you
Stand with you
Hold you
Drown in the smell of you
Lose myself in your neck
In your arms
Because you… are you

I want to build boundaries
Know I never have to let you go
Fucking really believe
That I will exist in you
The way you exist in me

You are not mine
Yet… You are
I will love you
For all my life



When your heart feels as big as the sky, you sing. No?

” I could light the night up with my soul on fire, I could make the sun shine from pure desire…”

Steve Winwood – Higher Love

From My Heart…

Cyndi Lauper sings words straight from my heart in her song “True Colors.” I have always seen things differently than most, and I wish you could see the world through my eyes…

“If this world makes you crazy
And you’ve taken all you can bear
You call me up
Because you know I’ll be there

And I see your true colors
Shining through
I see your true colors
And that’s why I love you…”


American Woman…

I am exactly who I am today because my entire life has been immersed in and informed by diversity. I am unapologetically American in this regard. The sharing and understanding of our life experiences is what always enables us to rise from the ashes of that which has been burned by those who stain our society. I am confident that as a nation we will confront the inequities we inherited from yesterday, the challenges we face today, and the ones to come in the future.

Ut Fides…

He sleeps within me
Hidden deep in my body
He’s in my lungs
He is my momentum
I walk each step of life silently
With my veins fiercely pumping my truth
His name on my tongue
His eyes drive me
Leading me to unknown skies


Una Lettera agli Aiutanti…

For all those that care for your country and your people, I know that you do so with your hands and your heart. You believe in the stories of your communities, the history of your land.

There is a picture you paint with your loving hands. I can hear your voice under the noise of the streets. I can feel something special, past all the fear of this pandemic. The picture helps me to believe in the future for us all.

With all that is happening, I know you are working to take care of all of us. Love knows no border.

The world is praying for your strength and courage. Do you hear us?

La Dolce Vita…

Sometimes I’m sad
Yes, sometimes I’m angry
What can I do?
The only choice I have is to hold onto a memory
To remember the first time you looked at me
And you smiled

You smiled…       at me

It was in that moment
That my heart filled
It truly filled…      it filled

It’s that memory that keeps air in my lungs
And, sometimes tears in my eyes

It is all that I have of you

Crossed An Ocean...         with love in my heart
