I Smell the Pines and See the Lights

It's almost Christmas. I remember looking up under our Christmas tree with the fat bulbs, some blinking, one a distinct blue-older looking. It annoyed me but it brought back a sense of familiar and ordinary to security. The whole thing was magic. The smell of pine, my eyes and face not too far from the sometimes older and more rusted tree stand with just enough confident water that I could almost see the tree drinking it right before my eyes. I would come back the next day or maybe hours and see how thirsty it was, the water had gone down so much. I would worry, but Dad would assure me, and he did fill it. Christmas music played and my mother reassuringly occupied the kitchen.

Happy Holidays ahead!! https://flic.kr/p/ps3aGe

For Meme and Pepe

Not Bare

Verse
It's so better than late than never
I have to share
The sway in your skirt
The love in the air
The wisps in your hair

Pepe could not control
the magnificence in you

Chorus
Only to adore
his loving eyes
We're not bare at all
Not bare at all

Verse
The uniform that sparked the parade
Throwing sparks through the crowd
Balloons that flew away
You hardly knew

Chorus

Verse
For when his time away
Your body would shrill
you knew
he'd be back
in your arms for sure (so true)

Fallen Victim's Birthday Dedication

In honor of Lisa King's birthday today, deceased daughter in 2001 of Linda King of 'Help Fix the Hurt Foundation' that Linda and her husband founded after Lisa's death from DV, I am giving away a song that I wrote for DV and dedicated it to Lisa. Bless you, Lisa, my angel, who came down and saved me, pushed me forward and blocked me from more harm when I didn't even know if I was going to survive from my brutal beatings to my head and body that left me permanently neurologically damaged, 'Don't Tell Him by Lori Jean. FREE Don't Tell Him by Lori Jean. Ask all stations, all friends, all programs to play this for Lisa, for me, and others visiting the Angels right now as we hold hands in rememberance during this time. Bless you.


For my baby Isabelle that died too from #teendv.

Overnight Success

I’ve been writing since 2001, been told I was gifted to this when I was 13, and also praised by my sister’s friends of my voice as an adolescent but some would still say I haven’t made fame. I’ve made great strides that feel so successful along the way!

Having a Great Time Writing!!

Me on Camera Talking to You

Snippet of 'Lori Jean's Journey to Her Music

From the day I was born I heard music and saw flashes in my face of lights from cameras. I was sure to be a star!. Fighting for my breath among piles of snow that covered me in the coldest of winter storms with snow piled more than 3 feet high on the East Coast taught me to fight for what I want. Fighting for control in the female gender pushing my brother’s newly given truck toy to him on his birthday to quick kick butts in my behind to this as my Dad filmed us playing on every birthday and refusing to celebrate other family member birthdays unto mine being last, I was sure to win in life. I was making my stance after all. I even refused to eat a piece of the birthday cake on these occasions with my hands and arms firmly clenched to this at the table not to move-on camera too-not a proud moment; my voice was SO loud to this.

Lori Jean's Journey to Her Music

Working on a new book about my comical journey to my music starting from my birth! I hope you’ll all follow along this journey as I write it and share some posts to my blog to my progress of it sharing some small excerpts and snippets from it. Heck I’m gonna need a cartoonist for this!! 😂😂

Will be fun to see the interaction. Song is at Google Play for those of you wanting to hear it earlier.

Was Gifted Women Speakers Association Membership

Kind of a dream, but I'm blown away. For school I needed to search for a way to market my work. Because of my son I wanted to find humor in my work. With that it brought me back to the basics of what is important and where I fit in. I connected to humor, my strengths and gifts, and other women and moms. Was blown away when I got this. The gifts and opportunities with this organization is endless!

Thank you God and my angels.
