A Muse in Harmony

The music we make, creates. Medicine music for the Soul.

Perhaps it’s the new Soul my portal is bringing, but I’ve been extra nostalgic lately. 💛
This is my Mom and Great Grandmother (my special Mamo’s Mom) with me at 13 (the braces year). I have such fond memories of my childhood with her. My very first public singing performance at 9 was here in the home where she lived her last days. Many of my performances growing up were at nursing homes in my region of East Texas.
A lot of kids I knew were scared of these places. But I saw life. I saw authenticity. I saw people who had lived long, incredible lives all their own. Kind hearts, who embraced me with love, and encouraged me.
Back to Duskie…98 fascinating years, born in 1902. Can you just imagine, a century of life? I remember when she lived at home, and I would stay with her. Things she did, ways she lived, have become so much more clear over the years, a decade into motherhood myself. The great depression, and its influence on her homesteading. And she never drove a car. Random tidbit, but it’s all such a curious peek into her world. 💛
Shelling peas, stinkin’ (garlic) bologna sandwiches with mustard on white bread (her fave), the smell of the fried pies and other desserts she kept on the counter, her aprons, her yard with fruit trees and vegetables and backyard shed, the dogwoods blooming in her front yard, crawling under the blocked up quilt she, my Mamo and Mom would sit round and stitch on…all little glimpses of the blissful river of emotion of memories with her.

Author: A Muse in Harmony

I'm Jess, aka, A Muse in Harmony. Momprenuer, Singer/Songwriter, Producer, Educator/Facilitator and all around Badass Manifestor. I embrace music from a holistic perspective. More than just entertainment, it's a powerful tool of entrainment for the body, mind, spirit and the world as we experience it. I pledge to inspire, to move people, and perhaps a mountain or two, with my voice and music. To share my whole, beautiful and sometimes messy truth each and every moment I am on this sacred Earth, and encourage others to do the same.
